Brad Edwards car just went 3.85 at over 200 mph repeatedly without so much as squeezing a drop of oil on track. So what you say? Ok hold on a second. This means the following things:
1. This is the quickest pass of any stock suspended vehicle in the world.
2. This is the quickest and fastest radial pass of any cast headed big block Chevrolet anywhere. People think I’m joking when I tell them I pulled Brad’s heads out of a dumpster. I’m not. I really did that. I pulled these heads out of a dumpster, made ridiculous repairs, ported them ENTIRELY by hand, and then bolted them on his motor. Fact.
That's ok, you were already on the trailer, so no big deal! LolAnother race day ruining glitter bomb oil down machine.Thet should have ls day (oilsorb day) and forbid them to run during an actual race. The last 3 late in the night, close the track because of too much oil to clean up have been, you guessed it, the "stock block, junkyard ls"
The big difference between them is the weight. You can easily get a foxbody 400lbs lighter than a Camaro. I have had both and they both WORK.
Nope. The big block would still be king, over the LS. It is somewhat cheaper to build too.I give credit where its due, if I was to get into that kind of racing , from a $$ stand point the LS is king , from a parts availability the LS is up at the top, if you have to make enough power more then what the LS block will take then after that no matter if its a ford, chevy , based motor its all dam near same $$, I am getting where I don't care if its a dam ford , chevy or a freaking Honda fast is fast and I want to go fast for as little $$ as possible, the key seems to a LS, now I would not do it with a stock bottom end, spend $1200 and get rods and pistons and the LS seems to be good to about 1500hp, more then that then best to step up to a aftermarket block ..so I have heard
This right here phucksttick1 is why they DON'T use a 5.3 block in the Supercharged COPO Camaro's and use a LSX block FACT!!Another race day ruining glitter bomb oil down machine.Thet should have ls day (oilsorb day) and forbid them to run during an actual race.

Sure phuckstick good thing they didn't race that Yellow Mustang that's been posted on here with a 4.6 and Stick shift in it and he didn't need a 6.0L with forged internals and Trick Flow Heads!!Like every Furd, the Fox body shines brightest...when touched by the hand of Chevy.
