Default V16 LS engine availble with 900-2000 hp

Not sure if I just missed it on here, or if no one else has posted it yet.
Katech and XVI Power have been working on this. I assume the block is same as the engine katech built for the caddy 16 show car.

Bye Tesla!


Besides making gobs of power though, an engine that big would concern me - so many moving parts and points of failure that you have to consider. I wonder how reliable those things are.

About as reliable as two LS V8's hooked together... I would say pretty good!

I think there's 4 of them here in Dubai that run around all the time. Hauling *** up and down the streets.......

Supposed to be the faster piston engine car in the world, ever made. But not sure.... 350mph......

I just saw them 2 weeks ago at the car show here too.......they sound friggin badass when revved. Almost as quiet a stock V8 when idling.



Revving it......

Wow, not sure how I didn't know this existed.

That makes me want to build a budget twin 5.3 engine set up like the old school dragsters. I'm sure it's been done before, I just haven't looked for the build threads.
