PATENDED LSX ENGINE MAIN GIRDLE.
  All cad-cam designed .The LSX engine main girdle increases block rigidity and torsional stiffness; it achieves this by boxing in the main caps. The lsx main engine will not let your block twist under load , girdled engines  maintain block rigidity .Engines that use lsx engine main girdle make more power, by decreasing friction in the piston area .The  increases in horsepower and torque is achieved by decreasing the bending moments and shear stresses experienced by all  high performance engines. The LSX engine main girdle will stabilize the bottom end of the cylinder block by evenly distributing the load across the mains, this product also keeps your bore nice and square , thus the friction in the bore is substatially less than a non girdles engine. The lsx engine girdle will virtually eliminate main cap walk, all ls based engines experience main cap walk , and itís this sea-sawing action that wreaks havoc on your bearings, especially the thrust bearing. The lsx engine girdle eliminates main cap walk by locking the main caps in place .The standard lsx girdle has tested up to 1200 horsepower . The the race version engine main girdle,has been up to 1500 HP + on Ronnie Dukes world record trans am. Now you do not have to run an expensive C5R race block or go to a heavy iron block. The lsx engine main girdle has been used by all major engine builders , over 5 years and 1000 engines with out a failure. This girdle stood the test of time and has been used and abused by some of the fastest lsx's in the industry. 
            Features of LSX engine main girdle include.
:Complete bolt on, no modifictions needed for installtion.
: Provisions for the orderly oil drain back into pan, as oposed to erractic splashing  which robs horspower..
: Made out of aircraft quality 304 cold rolled Stainless steel.
: Notches for rod clearances that also act as an oil scraper.

  The lsx engine main girdle adds Horsepower by completely blocking windage, also the nocthes on the girdle effectively act as an oil scapper, thus reducing the rods rotating mass.
Windage blocking devices are proven to provide 15 horspower. Oil scapper's have also proven to give another 15 horsepower, I estimate the girdle adds some were between 10 to 20 horsepower on the conservative side, although can be significanly higher depedning on how much your bolck deflects with out a girdle installed, so in other words if you are making big power with out a girdle the deflection robs you of your horspower.


  Engines that run the girdle make more power and last years longer than engines with out it. The lsx girdle will clear up to a 4.000 inch stroke with out modification and best of all the girdle is a complete bolt  on.

"The most important part of a high performance engine is the cylinder block, to be durable and reliable; it must be very strong especially in the bottom end, or crankshaft main bearing webs. A strong bottom end, determines the rigidity of the power train, including the transmission."
 
  "THE LSX ENGINE GIRDLE WILL
STABILIZE YOUR BOTTOM END PERIOD."
     PROUD TO SAY THIS PRODUST IS
                MADE IN THEU.S.A
