Chevy LS Series Aluminum C5R Racing Block

Product Details

Aluminum C5R Racing Block
The ultimate GM aluminum LS block, the C5R was originally designed for Chevrolet’s factory-backed Corvette racing program. It was developed to support more than 440 cubic inches and up to 900 horsepower – and it proved itself by powering the Corvette team to wins at LeMans, Daytona and nearly every track they encountered. This is a non-production, purpose-built cylinder block manufactured with proprietary materials and machined to the highest tolerances – and using premium, racing-spec hardware. If you're looking for the ultimate aluminum cylinder block to support your horsepower desires, the race-proven C5R is it!

*HIP is the acronym for Hot Isostatic Pressure. This process puts the blocks in a sealed vessel where a vacuum is first used to remove room air and any possible contaminants. The vessel is filled with high pressure nitrogen (up to 30,000-psi) and then heated to the required temperature and sustained for a determined amount of time. The cooling process is also a controlled procedure to ensure maximum strength and proper heat treat. This extreme high pressure and heat removes almost 100% of the internal porosities that are generated during the casting process. The material integrity, strength and fatigue life increase significantly.
