FastTimes 427" short block assembly based on the Dart LSNext SHP cast iron block, upgraded with ARP main studs. These come standard with a Dart billet steel 4.000" crank, 6.125" Boostline billet rods, 4.125" Diamond LS2K forged pistons with boost pin upgrade, gas nitrided steel rings and Dart-specific King main and rod bearings.
The Dart SHP block is substantially stronger than factory GM castings with a greatly improved oiling system identical to that in Pro Stock engines. Splayed 4-bolt billet main caps are the same as those in the Iron Eagle and Little M blocks and are much stronger than the GM design!
Perfect for LS swap projects, weekend hot rods, or even hot daily drivers, this short block will provide you with a solid foundation to start with to hold all the power you need, reliably!
