We've been able to keep the shortblock in our car with over 120+ runs last year and 100+ runs this year and we just keep beatin' on it. Steve Turley

ERL Performance has enjoyed a lot of excitement around the fact that engines built are using ductile iron sleeves, the same sleeves built to take the stress of 8000 H.P. nitro engines. In addition, while ERL starts with the consumers block it adds the superdeck system – the same system that runs on over 40 p.s.i. at the track – which allows the users to add significant power upgrades. The benefit to this technology is that the consumer doesn’t have to spend money on the block again when wanting to boost performance. Money can be spent on the upgrade itself sometimes saving hundreds of dollars and a lot of time. Their philosophy is that if the block and short block assembly is built right the first time it shouldn’t have to be rebuilt again. It should be able to take the stress and rigors of power upgrades.

In addition, ERL Performance has the reputation for being perfect, not “close to”, when building an engine. All engines are built one at a time with inspections after each step. This includes micro-polishing the crank with a 15 micron belt and all blocks are align honed. This makes sure the bearing bores are perfectly straight and matched to crank journal diameters. By the time the engine is put together clearances are exact. It is this laborious step that many engine builders leave out, resulting in poor performance and premature failure. This attention to detail applies to street as well as strip engines.

ERL Performance offers performance parts, short blocks, sleeved blocks and stroker kits and you can see the difference in their engines and products at the IMIS show December 1-3. Even though the event is only in its second year ERL Performance is dedicated to the show, feeling it is one of the best and will only get better as more and more vendors and visitors learn about the event.

You can learn more about the exciting advancements at ERL Performance at both the IMIS show and at When at the show ask about the LS 454 short block. It is an economical package but can handle 600 to 800 HP with amazing specs.
