Arrow LS3 & L92 Info

Edited July 2007: It is confirmed that the LS3 shares the same cylinder head castings and block casting as the L92 truck engine. The main difference in LS3 complete heads is that they have lighter valves and better valvesprings than standard L92 complete heads.


Ok here is all the info I have so far.


L92 Part numbers

GM #12590771 2.16 intake valve
GM #12582719 1.59 exhaust valve
GM #12582714 L92 Bare Cylinder head
GM #12600936 Rocker arm pedestals
GM #12569167 Intake Rocker arm
GM #10214664 Exhaust Rocker arm
GM #12590124 L76 Style Intake manifold
GM #12499225 LS Series lifter kit(newly designed for high RPM LS7 usuage)

L92 injecter info
https://ls1tech.com/forums/generation-iv-external-engine/612758-injectors-l76-intake.html

Here are the details and photos of the L92... my only question is, when could I actually have one in my hands!

The main things everyone needs to know about the L92 engine...

[email protected] Did the flow testing of the new L92 heads.

I just finished flow testing a new stock L92 head. All I can says is…….WOW! What a nice part.
I’d like to publicly thank StreetnStrip for the opportunity to test this head.
The test head has casting number 5364. Here’s the tale of the tape……..

4.030” test bore
Lift ___.100 _.150_.200_.250_.300 _.350 _.400 _.450 _.500 _.550 _.600 _.650_.700_.750
#1 Int. 74.9 109.4 154.4 193.5 225.3 252.8 274.6 292.7 308.8 321.0 328.7 326.6 310.0 316.6
#1 Exh. 63.6 97.9 126.1 148.7 162.3 178.6 189.6 197.6 205.5 210.7 214.6 217.8 221.2 223.5
The intake was tested with a radius plate and the exhaust was tested with a 2 ˝” stub pipe.

4.155” test bore
Lift ___.100 _.150_.200_.250_.300 _.350 _.400 _.450 _.500 _.550 _.600 _.650_.700_.750
#1 Int. 73.8 108.7 153.2 192.6 225.2 253.6 277.0 296.7 313.0 326.0 335.8 326.9 327.3 317.1
#1 Exh.61.1 97.9 125.7 148.1 162.0 179.5 191.8 200.1 205.9 213.3 218.4 220.9 221.9 223.2
The intake was tested with a radius plate and the exhaust was tested with a 2 ˝” stub pipe.

Exhaust port tested without pipe (4.155” bore).
Lift ___.100 _.150_.200_.250_.300 _.350 _.400 _.450 _.500 _.550 _.600 _.650_.700_.750
#1 Exh.63.1 94.7 121.1 140.6 156.9 165.8 176.1 182.8 187.9 191.4 193.7 195.6 197.6 199.5

Valve dimensions:
Intake = 2.160” X 4.870” X .314”(8mm)
Exhaust = 1.590” X 4.920” X .314”(8mm)

Seat/throat diameters:
Intake = 1.870”
Exhaust = 1.355”

Volumes:
Intake runner = 260.6cc
Exhaust runner = 90.0cc
Chamber = 69.8cc

A few observations………. These heads have the best seat/port lineup for an as cast GM head that I’ve seen. Their casting precision is VERY good. The fit and finish of the valves are very nice as well. The intake port is large, especially the area above the short turn radius. The intake cross section starts at 3.1sq/in at the intake flange and grows to almost 3.7sq/in forward of the guide boss!
I’m a bit disappointed with the exhaust port flow. IMO it needs to be at least 25 peak cfm better. I’m sure the engineers at GM know what they’re objective was and they were satisfied with the final product but I think for hot rodding especially blown applications, the exhaust port needs to be improved. Looks like head porters will have something to do after all………
I understand that there is a company working on a 4bbl carb style intake, but I’ll leave the intake manifold subject for another thread.

Happy hot rodding.

Richard

Great post, Im glad someone finally made a thread with all the part numbers in it. Also are the lifters sold in sets or is that each, its like 100.00?

Do we know yet, will regular LS1 springs fit in these heads? Like a set of PRC's?? Also the vlaves, can aftermarket ones be used, and is there room to put larger valves in there? These heads are going to be amazing, pretty big chambers but flow a **** load of air.
thanks

ok, the block part number is for the bare block.

12584997 - crank part number - availability is somewhat limited, just a bit longer wait for it.

12577583 - con rod number - availability is no problem, almost next day.

This is a great thread! Thanks to everyone for your contributions.

Is it me, or are the heads in the above picture on opposite sides? The L92 heads should have the intake bolts holes low on the intake flange.
Trivial stuff...........

Great job here guys. Keep up the nice work.

gmpartsdirect says the con rods are 80 bucks each, seems kinda high for a factory rod, maybe they are a forged piece like the crank, which is only 174 bucks. I sure wish they would release the price for the block, im starting to think that with these prices for this engine, that im going to build a 6.2 for my Sonoma GT instead of a reg LS2.

Id be willing ot bet that even though the L92 block is aluminum the fact that its not a corvette part will make it cheaper than the grand for the LS2 block.
