Last month, yours truly attended the Holley LS Fest in Bowling Green, Kentucky. It was an incredible event to be quite honest, and the turn-out was fantastic. After a weekend packed with racing and all things LS-powered, we visited Holley headquarters for the low-down on the newest products available for your LS vehicle. Here are just a few of them!
An LS Retro-fit engine oil pan designed for '55 to '87 vehicles has been available for some time, but recently an improved clearance version was created for those who had trouble fitting the original. The dimensions have changed, but the oil pan is still cast and machined aluminum and comes in a complete kit for easy installation. Also new is the oil baffle kit for the oil pan. The baffle prevents oil starvation, which could be a side effect of prolonged sessions of braking, turning, accelerating, and drag racing.
Also joining the line-up are an LS Single Plane EFI and Carbureted intake manifold and LS Dual Plane Single Carb intake manifold. Both are of cast aluminum construction, and the former operates to the best of its abilities in the 2500-7000rpm range, while the latter's powerband is 1500-6500rpm. Both feature 4150 square bore flanges and optimized runner layouts with constant cross-sectional area meaning they possess a broad torque curve, and best vehicle performance within those ranges.
An LS Modular Mid-Rise EFI intake manifold kit provides awesome performance up to 6500rpm for street and performance applications, and has the styling of a racing EFI intake manifold. The modular design combines a traditional dual-plane layout and EFI manifold plenum, which results in strong mid-range torque without the side effect of less-than-spectacular top end power. According to Holley, it's a perfect application for supercharged and turbocharged engines with better hood clearance than the Hi-Ram.
New throttle bodies - 105 and 95mm - are available for those looking for the ultimate bore. The newest throttle bodies from Holley feature Idle Bleed adjustment, a TPS clocker, and a PCV passage defeat valve, and are super easy to install.
LS engine swaps are all the rage right now, and Holley is the place to go for all of your swap needs including a wide variety of accessory drive brackets and kits, headers, exhaust systems, transmission crossmembers, and mount plates and brackets.
