TECH QUICKIE: Plugging LS Blocks to Delete AFM/DOD

LSX Magazine: TECH QUICKIE: Plugging LS Blocks to Delete AFM/DOD
For any number of reasons, performance enthusiasts working with select LS and all of the new Gen V LT engines may want to delete the Active Fuel Management (AFM) system, also called Displacement on Demand (DOD). One of the key steps in that operation is plugging the oil-flow passages in the cylinder block that feed the system.

“If you do not, you may have significant internal oil leaks that can result in problems with low oil pressure,” says Jason Haines of Lingenfelter Performance Engineering.

2014 CHEVROLET SILVERADO REAPER: RAPTOR HARVESTER

2014 CHEVROLET SILVERADO REAPER: RAPTOR HARVESTER

When one thinks of the biggest rivalries, thoughts can go to Red Sox-Yankees or Packers-Vikings (or Patriots and everyone else), but they are small potato’s compared to the rift between Ford and Chevy owners. Each owner is fiercely loyal to their brand, and take great joy in talking trash about the other guys product.

Back in 2014, when this Chevy Reaper was built, the Ford Raptor was temporarily out of production, so Chevy had an opening to tweak Ford, and they took it. Enter the then all-new 2014 Chevrolet Silverado Reaper. Though in 2017 you can get one off the dealership floor, in 2014 the Reaper was a modified Silverado 1500 that was actually a joint venture between GM, Lingenfelter Performance Engineering and custom builder Southern Comfort, or SCA Performance.

SEMA 2016: LPE Releases Modules For CAN Bus Integration

SEMA 2016: LPE Releases Modules For CAN Bus Integration

Automotive electronics have become exponentially more complex over the years and show no signs of slowing down anytime soon. While that is fantastic news in some respects, such as drivability and vehicle capability, it means vastly more complicated integrations for the average wrench turner. Thankfully, Lingenfelter Performance Engineering (LPE)—who is typically found on the bleeding edge of automotive electronics—has recently taken a few steps in making any gear head’s life a little less complicated when it comes to circuitry.

BRIGHTON, Mich. October 11, 2016; Dirk Stratton of Stratton Racing was named the Formula DRIFT Pro 2 class “Rookie of the Year” after a fourth-place finish in the overall 2016 season point standings. The newcomer earned 191.00 points driving a 2009 C6 Corvette powered by a Lingenfelter Performance Engineering LS7 V8 engine.

Stratton drives the only Corvette competing in the Formula DRIFT classes and is the only competitor using a Lingenfelter power plant, which he says contributed to his outstanding season results. The rookie competitor also relied on Lingefelter’s expert engineering team to lend the technical support that helped his vehicle reach optimal performance during each competition.

Reflections of the Legendary ’63 Corvette Grand Sport in Superformance’s Refined Reproduction

Reflections of the Legendary ’63 Corvette Grand Sport in Superformance’s Refined Reproduction

On the shortlist of the most valuable and significant Corvettes ever built is undoubtedly the ’63 Grand Sport.

Called “The Lightweight,” it is substantially lighter than a factory Corvette, with an ultrathin body and modified chassis. After being fitted with a hot, Weber-carbureted mill, the Grand Sport became virtually unbeatable on the track. For a brief, shining moment at Nassau Speed Week 1963, it proved to be superior to both Shelby’s vaunted Cobra and other GT-class cars and racing prototypes.

Curiously, reproductions of Zora Arkus-Duntov’s remarkable design are not as common as Cobra replicas, even though the Grand Sport was one of the few race cars to ever best Shelby on the track. Superformance is one of the few firms carrying the torch onward, producing a replica that improves on the original, refining a raw-boned racer for the street.
