    Is this block repairable?? ***Pics Inside***

    This is a 2000 LS1 out of a vette that had 15000 miles on it before the motor hydrolocked. Is this block repairable? The hole is less than an inch in diameter.

    Thanks!!

    Yes we call it a "window" that it recieved.
    You can take it to any real race machineshop that builds alum. block race motors and they can seal that baby right back up.
    Unless my eyes are decieving me it looks to be under the bottom of the #1 cylinder wall. So that is not a machined surface. There is a chance it took a piece out of the bottom of the cylinder wall. Depending on piston design as in the skirt the piston might not even go that far down in the cylinder.
    GoodLuck
    Don't be afraid of the bottle!!! Be afraid of your tune!!!

    My 01 formula also put a rod thru the block and A machine shop told me as long as it did not interfere with the oil pan surface area it could be welded. Unfortunately in my case it cracked all the way thru the oil pan mating surface. If I were you I would carry it to a couple of reliable engine machine shops in your area and get their honest opinion and what the warranty on their fix would be.

    lol i actually already tooke the plunge, i bought it for $150.00. it s basically a long block set up minus the intake manifold and the accessory drive. It also came with a water pump a nice engine stand which made the deal even sweeter. the motor only had water in it for about 3 days then we cracked the heads and got the water out. I mean the oil still hasnt been drained out of it yet. The motor only has 15000 miles on it. I just need to drain the oil and see if anything is damaged on the inside.
