What do you need to make 600HP in your LBZ?
600 RWHP (Rear Wheel Horsepower) with your LBZ makes one of the most fun trucks to drive! They sound great, look amazing and feel like a rocket ship if you do it right.
(Chuck Dilley's LBZ was actually a lot more than 600HP when this picture was taken, but it's a great picture)
There are many recipes out there to make this power. Each with it's own advantages and shortcomings. Below you will find our recommendation assuming you meet this criteria:
- Drive-ability is crucial! It's not just about a number on the dyno, you want to be able to daily drive this build when you are done.
- You are NOT trying to sled pull in a 2.6 or larger class.
- The truck must maintain its reliability. You don't want to constantly worry about blowing a motor. Or maybe you tow with it and want to (or have to) still let the wife drive it once and a while.
