More Motor and More Blower

Blowers, cams, and big blocks, oh my!

Words and Photos: Richard Holdener There is a very famous saying among performance enthusiasts that goes something like this: No matter how much power you give someone, they will always want more! This is especially true of racers, but even applies to hardcore street guys. The problem is that once we have sampled what feels like all the power we ... Read More »

Street Stroker 351W Gets a COMP XFI Cam

1

Words and Photos: Richard Holdener When it comes to coaxing more power from your combination, there are a number of different avenues.

Displacement vs Back Pressure

After installation of the turbo system on the larger 6.2L, the modified LS3 produced 807 HP and 747 lb-ft of torque. The peak boost pressure on the 6.2L was 6.9 psi, with a peak back pressure reading of 13.8 psi. Bigger motor equals more power equals more back pressure!

As powerful as the original Mustang, Camaro, and Challenger motors were, the new ones are even ... Read More »

Run with the FAST, the normally aspirated 5.3L also produced 486 HP, but at 6,800 RPM. Torque production was up with the FAST intake, to a peak of 425 lb-ft at 5,000 RPM.

Words & Photos By: Richard Holdener Back in Part 1, we compared a couple of popular intake manifolds on a normally aspirated 5.3L. The FAST LSXR and LSXRT have long been the go-to intake of choice for performance LS applications, but with so many new intakes available, we wanted to see if the FAST design was still a player.
