How much are you making off the 376? I looked into this before vice stroking and forging the stock LS3 to a 416ci. What made you go LSX?

Not sure what i'm making right now. Was planning on dyno this month, but funds are a little tight. So I'll find out soon.

If the LS3 block was salvagable I would've made it into a 427.

The lSX376 stuck out because it was already built and even though it has powdered rods, I figured the forged pistons should be more resilient to properly tuned boosted power when I add the Whipple later on.


And it's just damn cool to say I have an LSX powered Camaro SS

Whatever cam came in the 376. It's mostly a bolt on engine, which is why everyone is so confused how it laid that type of power down

Indeed, very nice numbers. I'm guessing it's the GM Hot Cam.

No idea. They keep redesigning it with higher compression and such

I was wrong. Looks like it ships with the Camaro spec LS3 cam.

Which just makes your numbers that much more impressive.

I know that these engines are built for boost and that is where you are going, but that is a pretty strong motor. You could have lots of pop with probably no troubles for 100,000 miles and maybe 200k. Tempting thought, unless you are totally focused on boost.
I keep thinking about buying a used SS and dropping in an LSX454. Hopefully it would run strong and be mostly trouble free for a decade.

These are great engines.

I was told it was dyno'ed conservatively. So I guess that's why my numbers are so high.. I have the gen 2 lsx which is 10.7:1 compression

Yes they are and your numbers are impressive. Much higher than I'd expect them to be.

Wow! Has your shop ever dynoed an LSX454? Supposedly that is about 580 at the flywheel (fuel injected). If that was really close on 550 at the wheels, I just wouldn't see the need, or the risk, of forced induction.

By the way, NICE car!!
