HPR 454 LS Long Block 

HPR's 'classic' 454.  Starting with a fresh GM LS aluminum cylinder block as the foundation we then sleeve to accept a much larger bore size.  Once the block is sleeved we fill the it with forged crankshaft, rods, and pistons all machined and assembled here in house.  The larger stroke and bore of the 454 will greatly aid in torque production over a standard LS7's 4.00" stroke unit while allowing better utilization of higher flowing cylinder heads from PRC and our own custom ground camshaft. 

Every component is thoroughly measured, cleaned, and assembled for proper fit under the most extreme uses. 

 Long block is completely assembled, balanced and blue printed to exacting specifications set by Erik.  We include (unless otherwise stated), all covers installed with full measured valvetrain ready for your intake, oil pan, and accessories to make the install as easy as possible. 

Looking for a custom build? We can do that too!  Ask your sales rep for details for more info today sales@horsepower-research.com
