Check out Part 1 and Part 2 of this series on building the next generation race engine!

Welcome back to Circle Track’s continuing experiment to see how an engine based on LS7 architecture will work as a full-bore dirt racing engine. Yes, Chevrolet Performance does sell the LS-based CT525 crate engine, and it is a great option for crate racing. But we know this engine design is capable of so much more, especially thanks to ever growing aftermarket support. And besides, why settle for a “mere” 525 horsepower when you can shoot for 600 or more?
