While there’s no shortage of aftermarket performance parts companies offering products for Chevrolet’s small-block V8 engines, there’s a certain sense of security that comes with using parts designed, engineered, and tested by the manufacturer. So, for those looking to take the safest route to squeezing extra power out of their LS motors, a pair of high-performance cylinder heads from Chevrolet Performance might fit the bill.
In the video above, we get to hear from Chevrolet Special Programs Manager Bill Martens as he gives an overview of Chevrolet Performance’s LSX heads. The heads are based on production parts, Martens says, but are made stronger with thicker decks, and given more clamping force with a 6-bolt-per-cylinder design (as opposed to the production heads’ 4 bolts-per-cylinder) to better hold up to the abuses of forced induction and nitrous.
