    LS1 shortblock HP limitations

    04 GTO..........

    how much RWHP is a "safe" bet? 600RWHP ok? That's my goal, previous owner took it to 468, so a little spray is all I need.

    I have heard the factory rods can handle 550hp but looks like its already done that. Hell, try it you will deff know when its too much.

    Did 576rwhp/590rwtq for a while on the stock bottom-end with a H/C/N set-up before finally pushing a head-gasket. When torn down, the short-block still looked awesome.
