2700HP LS Engine – Dyno Test

June 20th, 2019

Nothing catches the attention of a true car enthusiast quite like a powerful engine. Whether it is in the car or on the stand, we want to know all the details. What’s in it? Is it bored over? What kind of heads? And on and on…

This clip not only delivers with an amazing looking 7.0-liter (427) LS but also breaks down everything inside and out. As if that isn’t enough, there is also a dynamometer test that allows the builder to prove that his product does what he said it would.

Steve Morris Engines (Norton Shores, MI) is one of the premiere builders of racing engines in the world. They specialize in the LS platform. As you can see from the footage, they also have an extravagant dynamometer setup at their facility.

Unlike many Morris builds designed for use with methanol; the engine featured in this clip will burn gasoline. It is a Dart iron block with custom Morris internals and a set of Mast 305 cylinder heads. The intake manifold is also a Steve Morris product. Manufactured from a solid hunk of billet aluminum, it is almost as impressive looking as it is functional. A pair of Bullseye 83-millimeter turbochargers provide the cool, dense air needed to produce all that power and a pair of Turbosmart wastegates and blow-off valves (in car) help to regulate pressure.

This incredibly efficient dynamometer setup makes running the big engine calm and quiet. When it’s all said and done, over 2,700hp and 1,900 lb.-ft. of torque. Wow!
