Supercharged LSX Engine Pulls 1,066 HP on Dyno

Introduced in 2006 by GM Performance Parts, the LSX is probably the V8 engine you need to consider if you're looking to build a high-performance dragster.

The mill is offered with displacements ranging from 364 cubic inches (6.0-liters) to 511 cubic inches (8.3-liters) and is capable of withstanding up to 2,500 BHP. If that's not enough power, we don't know what is!

The video you're about to see below doesn't feature an LSX with that huge amount of power, but it's no lemon either. Topped by a 4.0-liter Whipple supercharger by the guys over at Late Model Engine, who also added several performance-enhancing parts, the 7.4-liter LSX pulls 1,066 HP on the dyno.

We don't know if the engine is all prepared to be fitted into a body and taken to the drag strip, but we would sure like to see it in a Corvette or a Camaro. Or a 1940s Willys Coupe for that matter. Scroll below for the video.
