Courtesy Dart Machinery. 500" stroke Main caps: Billet steel C5R-style with 200,000 psi ARP fasteners Lubrication: Priority main (feeds crankshaft first and top-end last) Weight: Approximately 130 lb with sleeves World products' Warhawk LS block is a premium aluminum casting that's CNC machined to precise tolerances. Various deck heights, bore diameters and cam tunnel options are available. And like the Dart and RHS blocks, priority oiling (where the mains get oiled first) is part of the design.
Never hone lifter bores until you have your desired roller lifters in hand and have measured lifter diameter. While any block, new or used, should be at least final-honed to size (and finish) for the pistons and rings to be used, always check each cylinder for roundness and consistency. This will tell you if the bore is tapered or inconsistent with loose/tight spots. On this particular example, we measured and found that the bore centerline location was fine relative to the block and main centerline.
Don’t purchase a set of cylinder heads based on big numbers. A cylinder head that features large port volume can result in a boggy engine when operated at low rpm on the street. Bigger may be better for racing use, but too-large intake port cross sections on a street application may not allow the engine to produce power where you want it. Choose the head based on the application…you want to maximize power based on how you drive the vehicle. Smaller port volume, more low-end torque. Bigger port volumes, more power as you open then engine up under throttle.
