    Okay, so meaning that's the prototype block for testing. Gotcha.

    I know they are accepting orders and it's $4K for a block plus heads.
    It just sounded pretty heavy duty so I figured I'd post it for the hardcore boost enthusiasts. ;)

    Well for the guys that like the boost this will be the one to have! I would like to see what GM comes out with as they are working on an LSx style unit as well.
    Katech has some seriously sick engine packages.
    At one point I considered dropping my car off to them and just having them do all of the conversion. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    I think the aftermarket is going to get some hurt put on them by GM.. Unless your a boosted application and need the 6 bolt heads I think the L92 heads and spider manifold or the plastic LS style will be the set up of choice for many N/A as well as some power adder cars.The L92 heads flow almost like a GM 18 Deg and are 800 buicks a set assembled..Soon as I get back on my feet and have some money to spen Im lookin at a L92 top end with a D-1 for the old firechicken...

    Shouldnt be long before I am diving into one of those Warhawks. I cant wait!
    Should cure alot of head gasket problems with power adders. I cant help but think I will have to sell me 413 small block and get either an LS2 sleeved block or if at that time the money permits go the full bore and get the Warhawk. Wouldnt that be cool in a second gen:eek:

    Check out the new Oct '06 Chevy High Performance. GM is sponsoring Robin Lawrence (of 5.0 Mustang fame) with an LSx - powered Nova. The engine will be 454ci and use LS7 heads to make 900HP naturally aspirated.

    If you want to see the future in blocks do a search on the GM ROX block. That is the trick block of the year.

    The ROX blocks are in the '06 GMPP catalogue.

    They rock, I want one of them plus one pair of SB 2.2's. Then about another 20 thou so I could trick it out and then break the dyno with it. 4.5 bore centers, symetrical ports, dual pin oilers, side water cooling passages. Let's rock! That is a block that can take the boost and not frag a head gasket.
