Default Westech testing our Boost/Nitrous Ready 408CI Short Block

We sent one of our off the shelf LQ4 Boost/Nitrous Ready short blocks down to Hot Rod Magazine/Westech to do some testing. Richard Holdener has been putting them to the test! They have thrown a 200 shot of nitrous, F1A Pro Charger with 18psi, Torquestorm Super Charger at 7lbs and will be doing a few more fun tests. Check out the videos below:

"Cuz 1000 is the new 500!
It is amazing how easy it it is to make 4-digit power. We ran this ATK 408 stroker with LS3 heads, a Comp 54-470-11 cam and Fast intake. Equipped with a Procharger F1A and ATW IC at 18 psi, the combo produced 1015 hp.
