ALPER motorsports LS7

Recommended Posts

I got the bug. For no good reason I decided i needed a bigger motor. The motor I had ran perfect every trip out and never once let me down, but i have people around me that are BAD INFLUENCES! I know there are much bigger and badder motors out there, however this is probably more than my white trash a** deserves. Jason from Alper motorsports knows his stuff. I mean it is ridiculous. he has every nut and bolt on these motors memorized. I swear he knows every trick. Stuff that would have took hours of research he knows AND had the parts in stock. I bought a LS7 out of a corvette Z06, and before I knew it the project had started. I know its not everyone's idea of beautiful, but I love her.

we converted back to wet sump. (I'm not enough of a baller to do dry sump properly) 

new cam

head job with better exhaust valves. rocker upgrade, and titanium retainers & upgraded springs

102 intake and throttle body

black fuel rails

black valve covers

new modified water pump (he welded the two area closed that sandcars dont use)

new pullies

black BAD ASS alternator

all new bolts

looks good John, the Bronze valve guides and Stainless steel Exhaust Valves should keep this thing together, was very nice with the added touch of Titanium Spring Keepers,

should a lot more fun over 5.7 ls1

for anyone doing a ls7 crank it is pretty easy, to go to the wetsump,

the only difference is the crank is longer, so when putting on the LS1 pump and cover and balancer you use a spacer on the outside to hold the balancer on, cant wait to fire this bad boy up,

We did a custom Lunati Cam and looking to get around I think 1.4 to 1.5 HP per cubic inch is what we are shooting for, we got the harness last week from Brent and Shawn at CBM so off to Gill Narvarus Racing for the Dyno next week to see what we will get at the wheels

shooting for 610 to 640 at the flywheel, or over 500 at the wheels

Hey Jason. Is Gil Nevarez still in business? He built a twin turbo srt8 challenger I bought a while ago. I have been trying to get a hold of him but I was told he isn't in business anymore?

Wow that looks amazingly clean and simple.

JAlper can this be done to an 03 5.3 truck block? PM me if needed to go off line and discuss.

Yes we can do the same to the 5.3, Marka 5.3 made at the flywheel 500hp at 7200rpm with a cam intake and throttle body, all the exterior parts will fit the 5.3

i had so many questions along the way... Alper answered his phone every single time and knew all of the answers.

motor fired up instantly.

just shy of 500HP to the wheels through an S4S on 35" mud terrains with NO trickery on the Dyno. Real numbers.

Best of all the torque graph is insane. as soon as you hit the throttle the bastard jumps above 400 and steadily climbs to close to the same number as the HP.

I cant wait to get her out to the sand.

Thank you Alper!
