Looking good how far into the 7's is he now and does he have a stick shift in it?Here’s a couple pics of a local racer’s NMCA Mustang. His name is Robbie Blankenship. He used to run the NMRA Hot Street class, heads up N/A class. You know like a baby pro stocker.
Anyhow you will notice that this car is powered by one of those “non-existent” Cleveland’s.
Where are the inline Chevs that can compete with this car heads up N/A and no weight factoring?

So why can't the LT 5.3 do it without H-Beam rods answer that or are you going to be a bitch?Seriously you think my engine only makes 400 horsepower if so you should stop being a dumb ass bitch!!Dude. Seriously. Stop being such a bitch. I've seen plenty of STOCK LS deals making over 750. RELIABILITY is the key here. Again, if you ever made over 400HP, you might understand this.
So you're saying all those engines are better than the greatest Furd engine...EVAH. They gonna kick you out the fan boy closet for such blasphemy...Erik.DOHC MOD Motor
Oh by the way, that's how we felt about the sbc.
So why does the new LT 5.3 need H-Beam rods to handle 750 horsepower when the JY 5.3 LS like you always talk about don't need them?

Is that right Steveo? You better contact your fan boy hero, Dick Holderer, and let him know there's now way he made almost 3 times that with a stock block and rotating assembly with regapped stock rings.550 is about all the stock ls rod good for. Then it’s a time bomb just like the rest.
Poor Steveo...he's about as up to date as Fred Flintstone. 😜Has anyone seen a na LS make power? Never seen in real life.
Wait a minute, when did you get the impression that I give a fuck about the 4.6, because I have an 07 GT, I also have the 2013 boss and my favorite is still my 83 with the cleveland.The 4.6 2V SOHC modular sure didn't do that
If ya can't make power with those LS things put a couple turbos on it, its easy, lolIs that right Steveo? You better contact your fan boy hero, Dick Holderer, and let him know there's now way he made almost 3 times that with a stock block and rotating assembly with regapped stock rings.
Prior to running, the LY6 short block was disassembled and treated to surfacing, a quickie ball hone and a fresh coat of paint. The real reason for the disassembly was to increase the factory ring gap on the original pistons rings. In most cases, piston failure under pressure is causes by insufficient ring gap. The rings heat up, the ends butt together and seize momentarily in the bore. The result is a broken ring land on the piston. For our LY6, the ring gap was increased from a measured 0.019/0.024 to something over 0.030 for both top and bottom rings. The factory (original) rod bolts were also retained, as were the production lifters, but we did swap out the VVT timing set up for a 4X cam gear and (used) chain.
Imagine that, a motor originally designed by GM to produce 400 hp was now making close to four times that amount. I guess it is safe to say the Gen IV rods are stronger than the Gen III versions, and these dang LS motors never cease to amaze us.
You need to get out of the stone age Steveo. 😜
You know, with all your LS talk I was thinking of building one, then I looked down and said "shit, I already have a belly button". Maybe I could put a ring in mine to make it different and more feminine, wait, PH1 beat me to it 🤣Poor Steveo...he's about as up to date as Fred Flintstone. 😜
