MOTOWN LS Iron Block

FREE SHIPPING & HANDLING WITH EVERY WORLD PRODUCTS BLOCK PURCHASE

The unique Motown LS block lets you utilize a full compliment of standard small block Chevy components with the decided advantage of being able to employ high flowing LS-type cylinder heads. In addition to the internal components, the Motown LS allows use of expensive already-purchased items like pulley kits and external accessories. The block also boasts a coolant capacity in excess of 150 fluid ounces to provide superior cooling. Motown LS blocks are offered both bare and fully race-prepped for your convenience.

THE MOTOWN LS IS A UNIQUE ONE-OF-A-KIND BLOCK MADE ONLY BY WORLD PRODUCTS!

Note: The Motown block employs a standard SBC water flow path. When using LS-style heads on the Motown you must use an adapter on the heads to facilitate a return flow to the radiator. The World Products Cooling Adapter (p/n 061079) also accommodates standard SBC accessory brackets.



The latest design World Products Motown LS small block Chevy Hybrid engine block features a camshaft location which has been raised in the block by +.134". The block now comes standard with a 55mm cam tunnel and cam cores are now readily available from Erson Cams at an affordable cost for this application. This design allows the use of both I-beam and H-beam connecting rods with a 4" stroke crankshaft, and the large diameter cam core provides for exceptional valve train stability at high RPM operation.
