The LT4 uses moly faced rings as most all GM engines have used for over 30 years. GM also uses a plateau honing process on the cylinder bores which nearly mimics the surface finish of a broken in...

My ZR-1 gets a lot of love in Spain

My sister-in-law was in town from Colombia and this was her first time seeing my car. Being a little bit of a daredevil, she of course wanted a ride to see what it could do. We live in a resort area...

Because HP is what accelerates a car and the power band of the LT4 is narrow. The M7 and A8 are close ratio transmissions to keep the LT4 in its power band, more gears always benefit engines with...

The 5.7L LT5 in the C4 ZR-1 had more low-end torque than the 5.7L L98 or LT1, my C4 ZR-1 will easily pull 6th gear from 25 MPH/~500 RPM. You're confusing the low torque output of the typical small...

Torque by itself does not accelerate a car, torque is just a force. I can get a 10 foot lever arm and apply 2000 lb-ft to the rear wheel but I won't develop much RPM. The new Duramax diesel makes 910...

And your caveat about cam timing turns out to be spot on. Peak power for the 5.5 occurs at 6000 RPM, HP and the RPM at which it occurs could've been much higher with different cam timing...
