Found in the video archives over at Lingenfelter Performance Engineering, the tuning company’s mad scientists once took an LS Small Block V8, swapped out the stock crankshaft for a more finesse-oriented flat-plane crank, and then tested the engine on the dyno.
The engine is capable of putting down 600 horsepower and was designed specifically for drag racing. In this particular test the engineering team winded the motor up to its 9,000 RPM limit, but took the unique step of turning off the lights in the room midway through the dyno pull. As a result, the heat generated by the incoming and outgoing gases in the engine was so great that it actually caused the engine to achieve a temporary glow stick-esque effect which was bright enough to illuminate the pipes in a slick white hue. Check out the video and the ensuing light show below, and tell us what you think of Lingenfelter’s newest engine.
