Randy Meyer Racing Commercial with Moroso Performance Products
The LS4 engine has not been a popular choice when it comes to an LS-swap. The powerplant offers several challenges, whether you are trying to use it in a front-wheel-drive (FWD) or rear-wheel-drive (RWD) application. In a FWD configuration, you are limited to the type of transmission you can run in stock form, with the LS4 4T65eHD being your only option. Like the 4L60e, the 4T65eHD is underwhelming in performance and tends to bring a premium when purchased at a junkyard. For a RWD setup, you will have a couple of problems. One is that the engine block does not have any provisions for mounting the starter. The second problem is the LS4 has a specific bolt pattern for the 4T65 transmission and will not bolt up to a 4l60e, 4l80e, TH400, etc. One area of the LS4's design that can open up some possibilities is with the oil pan.

Call it wretched excess, call it overkill, but there's something about a normally aspirated big-block Chevy that thumps.
When it comes to high-performance racing parts for small-block Chevy engines destined for racing, there has been a dearth of new products for some time. Before we go much further down the "it's all been done already" road, let us show you some new SBC valve covers from Moroso...
Manufacturers are utilizing more and more lightweight composite parts on cars and trucks these days. While composite parts have some advantages over their metal counterparts, they have some disadvantages too. In the case of the Gen-3 Coyote engine owners, the oil pans are made of lightweight composite material...

The CompCam's Dream Team returned for the second season of the Horsepower Wars $10K Shootout with a fresh, new crop of talent, and while their end product is wholly their own, the team borrowed on the basic formula - a formula that nearly won the inaugural contest a year ago - to give itself a shot at the crown.
