SPi and Livernois team up to make BIG power with a little D1 *VIDEO ADDED!!*

One of are good customers came to us in September and decided he wanted more cubes and alot more power and still be able to use his D1 Procharger. We teamed up with Livernois motorsports to build us an awesome LSX LS7 429 iron block with 9.1 comp. The engine has C&C ported LSX LS7 cylinder heads with comp valve job, stainless valves, dual springs, custom grind cam , LS7 intake manifold, and of course an SPi custom tune.

His car already had the following parts. Dynatech 1 7/8" long tube headers , MBRP 3" exhaust, Livernois dual fuel pump, Stage 2 procharger D1 kit,ATC stage 3 clutch, hurst shifter, hotchkis race pack suspension, SPi billet trailing arms. With a 3.45" pulley and 13 LBS of boost the car made 924 RWHP and 840 RWTQ on pump gas. We are very happy with how the engine turned out, Livernois has a great C&C program these LSX heads flow like crazy. There is still some more power left on the table but we hit the limits of the fuel system......for now.

Congrats on your new beast Chris, we are all surprised at how well your D1 handled the extra cubic inches. These are the biggest #'s we have ever tuned a D1 to and our proud we had the opportuinity to make this dream a reality for you. Now start saving for that F1 and let's really crank it up!


Dyno sheets:





We will have some videos to add tomorrow morning, so stay tuned for the noise, here is the start up vid.

Wow, when i was researching a 416 stroker to use with my D1 everyone said i would have to go with an F1 head unit to make my goal of 850RWHP. Even Procharger said the D1 would not be enough to fill the bigger cubes of a 416.

This is encouraging. I was still gonna go with my D1 on the new motor and use it for a while till it gave out than upgrade head units. My plan is a 416 with 9.5 to 9.8:1 CR making 515 or so RWHP NA and running the D1 up to about 12 PSI. My calculations said i should get at least 800 RWHP. I would be pretty happy with that!

Congrats on that level with the little D1. I knew it could be done.

The proof is in the pudding; time and time again SPI has produced the most awesome results with the ProChargers. Thanks, SPI you guys are awesome.

Drew how many pulleys were left? And, if you had to guess; F1-(n) and 110# injectors what kind of crazy #'s do you think we would make?

D1

The D1 is a very capable head unit for most people. It tends to get pushed to the side in favour of the F series blowers, but when used properly with a good intercooler and proper tuning, it can produce big reliable #'s.

That being said, I would prefer if this setup did have an F1R, that way we could wastegate it like some of our other big centifugal setups and make BIG torque a little lower in the RPMs. We did try a wastegate on this combo but the D1 just didn't have the CFM to support it above 5500rpm. But I guess there is nothing to complain about when you're over 800ft/lbs from 4500rpm and beyond

With a more potent fuel system I think we would have neared the 1000 mark, but for sure the D1 would have been working over time. On it's current setup, the head unit would reach max impeller rpm at 6900 rpm.

Our shop car has a P1, and we were told we would never make power with that.......we have made 668rwhp on 6.8 psi, again with room to grow, but are happy with that for now, and to be honest, never have time to work on the shop car much. Chris was told by many that his D1 would never work on a larger displacement engine, but here we are, 900+ isn't too bad.
Thanks again to Livernois-they really built us a badass engine

For sure, we can't forget the engine, credit to Livernois it was worth the planning, special touch, and the wait.

Now can't wait until the guages get here and we finish her up. I might be able to get in some joy rides considering the weather has been so nice.

On a sidenote, when meeting up with you guys and reading your builds on here, I have to say I was beyond impressed when I saw everyone coming up with 600rwhp. Then a few of you guys went to 700rwhp and my mind couldnt even process having that much hp, now Chris is close to the 1000 rwhp mark and my mind is about to explode at the thought of what that even is. Like insane....INSANE!!!
Cant wait to feel the earth shake when I see this beast in person.

And for those who do not know, SPI has been building some SERIOUS beasts up here in the North! Cant wait to see what you guys have in store for us!

Would love to be the first BADASS V6 SPI puts out....I just have to save a little more to get there

That is crazy. You would think the D1 would be out of air flow. Thats well over 1000 crank hp. awesome #'s to say the least.

I'm sure Drew could whip up a serious V6 package that will blow everybody away.

You say that as if the D-1SC is a paperweight it's one level below an F series. We still had 2 pulleys to go, but would have to get 110# injectors because we ran out of fuel.

Thanks. Most builds have Maggies so not many except for a select few are fully aware of what a centri unit is capable of except for the bias they read on these forums. Realistically, you can't even compare the specs between a ProCharger and a Magnuson.

http://www.procharger.com/models.shtml

I can compare the CFM / Boost for all the ProChargers, but can't find the info. for a Maggie to save my life.

Don't believe the hype these ProChargers can keep up and exceed (depending on the model) any supercharger out there.

Rick; you guys are an awesome team. This engine is rediculous man. We're loving it. Please, extend my many thanks to your team at Livernoise.

I kept it a secret; But now the word is out Livernois built my engine and it's amazing, and with awesome build and tuning by the master guru Andrew @ SPI this SS is one serious machine. You guys rock.

That's great to here. I'm be doing a wastegate on my stock bottom-end build with a D1. I can't wait to see how my lower rpm torque number looks, because for me, that's where you win races , but I'll still have plenty up top too.

This may work better for you on a 376ci. engine, be carefull though the D-1SC is a bad futha'mucka'.
