Let’s face it, if you are reading this, it’s safe to say that you’re a fan of horsepower. As a human being, you’re probably a fan of free things, as well. Well, Holley Performance Products has teamed up with several other leaders in the performance aftermarket to not only build a badass, twin-centrifugally supercharged LS engine, but to also give it away to one lucky winner in a sweepstakes running from now through June 22, 2020.
Partnering with Prestige Motorsports, A Dart LS Next Pro engine block with a 4.125-inch bore and billet mains was chosen as the base for the engine. A forged 4340-steel 4.00-inch-stroke Eagle crankshaft rotates on King Engine Bearings, making for 427 cubic inches of displacement.
Bolted onto the crank is a set of Eagle’s forged H-beam connecting rods. Attached to the rods are a set of 4.125-inch DSS Racing pistons. Made from forged 2618 aluminum, they are gas ported and come with DSS’ ring package and heavy-wall wrist pins.
A custom ground “high-rev” camshaft, double-roller timing set coupled with ARP cam bolts and an ATI steel supercharger damper handle timing. A Melling 10296 oil pump, Holley LS Retro-Fit oil pan and dipstick and tube kit keep all of the engine’s lifeblood moving.
Prestige Motorsports 11-degree cathedral-port cylinder heads with 255cc intake ports and 2.02-inch intake valves and 1.60-inch exhaust valves sit atop the short-block. Johnson Controls Hy-lift hydraulic-roller lifters and a set of custom-length pushrods actuate a set of Prestige Motorsports trunnion rockers, translating camshaft motion into valve motion.
Topping off the combo is a Holley Lo-Ram intake manifold fitted with a 95mm Holley throttle body and a set of Fuel Injector Clinic 1,000 cc/min injectors and Holley fuel rails. MSD coils keep the spark lit and are controlled by a complete Holley Terminator-X EFI system and harness.
The piece de resistance comes from TorqStorm, and consists of a pair of centrifugal superchargers to feed boost into the engine. Capable of moving enough air to make 1,200-plus horsepower, the TorqStorm system includes a pair of blow-off valves, a crank pulley, air filters, and all the required brackets, belts, and pullies.
This is only a summary of the parts used in the build, which total up to a value of $23,364.44. For the full list, along with specific part numbers, visit Holley here. To enter the sweepstakes, you can either follow the link on that page or click HERE. The winner will be announced on June 25, 2020.
