Search no longer for that LS engine part! We have a wide range of parts for your engine block. In our blog, we discuss various products from our range, including delete kits, gaskets and pistons.
GM LS engines, or LS for short, are very popular engine blocks for performance enthusiasts. The engines from General Motors are known for their power, torque and, above all, technical versatility. The name is given to the Gen 3 and Gen 4 Short Blocks, which are distinct from the originally Gen 1 and Gen 2 Short Blocks. The first LS engine block was introduced in the Corvette in 1997.
The LS engines were and are a great success and can be fitted in a variety of vehicles. The small package, low cost and high availability together with the engine's versatility ensures its popularity among performance professionals. Wilmink Performance also offers a host of parts from our suppliers to turn an LS engine into a dream block from street performance to drag racing.
In this blog, we discuss various product groups and brands we supply for LS engines, including catalogues and brochures. If you have any questions or want to know more about a product? Ask us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cylinder heads are the most complex part of an internal combustion engine and can make all the difference in a performance race. For the LS series, we offer various cylinder heads from AFR and Dart Machinery, among others.
AFR offers the MONGOOSE series for LS engines and these are made of A356 aluminium and come with the corresponding parts, such as titanium retainers and Pac Racing Springs.
Dart Machinery also supplies good quality cylinder heads for various performance applications. For example for drag racing, which of course belongs in Dart's DNA. Various cylinder heads are available for the GEN III LS Next series, including the PRO1 series, Race series and LS Billet Aluminium Heads.
Delete kits are used to remove the Active Fuel Management (AFM) or Displacement On Demand (DOD) systems. The systems normally switch off some cylinders when the engine block is lightly loaded. For performance professionals, this can be detrimental and the choice of the delete kit is easily made.
