The Aluminum LS1 Gen III V-8 block only weighs 103 lbs! Has 6 bolt main caps. The centrifugally cast iron liners are manufactured in a centrifuge then cast into place in the block during the pour of molten metal.
LS1 engine block liners have very little tolerance for rework! 97-98 blocks can only be honed out .004 inches. The 99 and later can be a max of .010 over.
The Stock crank has been known to handle over 500 hp Naturally Aspirated and 650 hp in Forced Induction uses! The rolled fillets on the crank journals are the biggest contributor to its strength.
