Engine Break-In Procedure
Use only engine oil that meets dexos1 specifications. For track events or competitive driving, use Mobil 1 15W-50 engine oil. Fill the engine with oil and follow the proper engine priming procedure. Also check and fill as required any other necessary fluids such as coolant, power steering fluid, etc.
Start the engine and listen for any unusual noises. If no unusual noises are noted, run the engine at approximately 1000 RPM until normal operating temperature is reached. The engine should be driven at varying loads and conditions for the first 30 miles or one hour without wide open throttle (WOT) or sustained high RPM accelerations. Run five or six medium throttle (50%) accelerations to about 4000 RPM and back to idle (0% throttle) in gear. Run two or three hard throttle (WOT 100%) accelerations to about 4000 RPM and back to idle (0% throttle) in gear.
Change the engine oil and filter. Inspect the oil and the oil filter for any foreign particles to ensure that the engine is functioning properly. Drive the next 500 miles (12 to 15 engine hours) under normal conditions. Do not run the engine at its maximum rated engine speed. Also, do not expose the engine to extended periods of high load. Change the oil and filter again, inspect the oil and oil filter for any foreign particles to ensure that the engine is functioning properly.
Forged Internals and Six-Bolt LSX Heads
That Support More Boost!
For builders who want to stretch the performance of a turbocharged or supercharged combination, we've got just the foundation you need: Chevrolet Performance's new LSX376-B15, featuring a durable, all-forged rotating assembly to handle up to 15 pounds of boost.
Chevrolet Performance's engineers started with the tough LS steel Bowtie standard-deck block, added a forged-steel crankshaft, forged rods, and forged pistons, then topped off the short-block assembly with high-flow, rectangular-port LSX-LS3 six-bolt aluminum heads for supercharged and turbocharged combinations.
The LSX376-B15 is delivered without an intake manifold and other accessories, allowing you to tailor the induction system and other features to suit the forced-induction setup of your choice. It's perfect as an economical replacement for a late-model performer or a great choice to build a high-boost powerplant for a Pro Touring classic.
*Horsepower and torque ratings were derived by GM Engineering using a normally aspirated LSX376 with LS3 EFI system. Your power numbers may vary, based on induction system and componentry.LSX376-B15 TECH SPECS:
