Default Looking for big power maybe 1000rwhp, maybe I don't know

Alright, looking to change my setup a little this winter. My goal is 1000-1300whp. What would be a good motor to build for that power level, I will not have the money for an lsx yet. Will a built lq9 work? Looking at an s91 for the turbo. Need some engine ideas.

Good luck to you. If you don't have the budget for an LSX, you don't have the budget to try and hit 1300!

just curious, what are you planning on doing with 1300rwhp? im building a LQ motor that technically should handle that, but the most id ever run would probably be in the 800's even that is stupid fast. really. I drove a 900rwhp sandrail and its just too damn fast. haha seriously

1000 is easy and can be done "relatively" cheap. Past that and you start needing some higher priced parts to make it live.

Also, you can't exactly compare Fireball's setup to anything that will be street driven. Aluminum rods are not street friendly His build may be "budget" compared to something like Phil's, but it isn't an off the shelf setup.

I agree on both counts.

I was probably making 1400ish RWHP this year and finally found the limit of an OEM LS2 block (we think we cracked a sleeve)...though I won't know for certain until Saturday when I take the motor back to Shawn...

LQ9 will have less bore distortion, LS2 is lighter

pick your poison

why not have a motor spec'ed for you by a reputable builder
