Custom, LS-Born V12 Engine Is A Delightful Sight And Sound: Video5
We’ve seen a handful of talented engine builders do amazing things with the LS engine. There’s a reason the small-block V8 has been a go-to source of go-fast for decades.
But it’s rare we see two LS engines become one. One V12 engine, that is.
Motor Authority reports a shop from our friends in Australia have taken two LS1 engines, cut through the cylinder bores of each block and welded them back together. Voila, V12.
In the video above, the engine is stated to be good for 717 naturally-aspirated ponies and 630 units of twist. Delightful.
The best part is the engine is said to be coming back to the U.S. for a Chevrolet Camaro project. We desperately need to find the owner to follow how this build progresses.

Squeeze that baby into a Corvette!
How about putting it in a Silverado Crew Cab 4×4? Would be nice to have a straight line mustang killing Silvy.
why stop at 12? GO 16!
Cowabunga. I would like to be able to follow the progress of this project. This has so much potential. Think TURBO,SUPERCHARGED, NITROUS, BLOWN. OOOWWAAHHH.
At this point, shouldn’t they be using the LS3 as a starting point, not an LS1?!
