LS7 assembled by Wegner Automotive (Markesan, Wisconsin). Wiseco 11:1-compression pistons and Callies connecting rods and crankshaft comprise the rotating assembly. COMP pushrods, roller lifters, and custom-ground cam and RHS LS7 heads are the prime time players in the top end. ARP fasteners button up the ensemble. A FAST 102mm LSX R intake ensures proper fuel/air distribution and FAST 52-lb/hr injectors distribute the offerings delivered by the GM ZL1 fuel pump. Spent fuel makes a rapid exit via 1 7⁄8-inch long-tubes and 3-inch chambered Stainless Works X-pipe.
