The new-generation GM LT4 is the most powerful production engine GM has offered to date. If you are swapping one of these high-performance engines into your project, make sure the accessories are capable of keeping up, including the drive system. Drive Junky has accessory drive systems for numerous LT engines. This LT4 Street Monster kit is machined out of solid billet 6061 aircraft aluminum in large pieces and is a direct bolt-on for the wet-sump LT4. Notice how the A/C compressor is low-mounted for a cleaner appearance.
Applying the proper amount of clamp load to a rod bolt is perhaps the most crucial operation in assembling an engine. Too much or too little torque can lead to engine failure. Measuring bolt stretch provides a 100-percent reliable method of getting the correct clamping load. Industry-leading fastener manufacturer ARP has taken accuracy to the next level with the introduction of a digital stretch gauge that measures to the ten-thousandth (0.0001-inch). ARP’s new digital rod bolt stretch gauge (PN 100-9943) has many important features, not the least of which is an easy-to-read digital display. Accurate readings are ensured through opposing ball-and-pin-type probes that center on the bolt. A uniquely designed billet aluminum handle makes for ease of operation.
