This is how the V8 engine sounds, which spins up to 11,000 rpmNovember 27, 2019
On the units of General Motors assembled an engine that spins twice as much as the factory
The team of the American University of EFI, after three years of work, introduced the high-performance V8 engine assembled on General Motors units. It can spin up to 11,230 rpm, which is almost two times more than the critical mark for the factory engine.
Ben Strader, the founder of the university, three years ago set out to refine the atmospheric seven-liter engine with the LS index so that he could spin up to at least 11 thousand revolutions per minute. Provided that the factory red line is at around 7,000 rpm, the task was not an easy one.
Most of the time, according to Strader, he spent not on the work itself, but on the design of the motor. In particular, he spent many weeks developing a valve mechanism that could withstand such a load. As a result, the creator teamed up with Comp Camp valve manufacturing company.
Together, they still managed to complete the project and complete the engine. On the last video, which Strader posted on Facebook, the modified engine managed to maximize up to 11,230 rpm.
