Don't let the smaller displacement fool you, this 400" set up manifest itself as a multiple record setting base for your build. By taking the stroke of the crank down to 3.750", you yield the advantage of a more rigid piece with conjunct benefits. The cranks overlap is reduced and piston speed is slowed, allowing for a more stable unit at high RPMs and substantial boost levels for long duration. Cylinder bores are taken 4.125" and feature a much thicker ring land, creating a more rugged and resilient part that is able to withstand high heat.

LME Standard Shortblock Blueprinting Process:

  • Block is fully deburred & inspected for flaws

  • Cylinders diamond honed with torque plates for optimal clearance per application

  • Crankshaft journals indexed & trued to exact tolerance

  • Optimal cylinder geometry achieved with diamond hone and surface finish verified with profilometer

  • Chamfered oil holes for improved oiling to bearings

  • Cylinders machined for rod clearance per application

  • Crankshaft journals polished to 2 Ra or better surface finish

  • Block and components meticulously deburred & cleaned after machining process

  • Crankshaft balanced within ¼ oz-in tolerance

  • All five main bearings & all eight rod bearing clearances measured and adjusted for application

  • Connecting rod housing bores checked & adjusted for optimal roundness & size

  • Ring are precision file fit per application

  • Piston pin bores measured & adjusted for application

  • Cam bearings installed and test cam fitted to ensure smooth rotation

  • Block aline honed and set to low of spec for maximun bearing crush

  • All oil galley plugs and dowel pins installed

  • Deck surfaces machined perpendicular to mains & deck height set for optimal quench

  • Meticulous final assembly of shortblock

  • Cylinders bored (when applicable) on 4 axis CNC perpendicular to mains giving you a true 90o  V8

  • All tolerances, clearances, machining specs, and part numbers are recorded and documented in build sheet
