Looking for a killer LS2 engine?

The baddest LS2 engines can be found coming from Golen High Performance Engines in Hudson, New Hampshire, USA. They are a custom engine builder with years of experience. They can build anything from ‘mild’ to ‘wild’! Truly a performance shop with horsepower in mind! I have seen the engines they produce, and they are just sick with power! They offer complete engine work, balancing, porting, power cylinder honing, decking, custom valve jobs and valve work, and line honing… They have a dyno machine, where they test each engine they build. They also do extensive research and development there. They build LS1, LS2, LS3, LS7, LSx, LT1 and Jeep ‘Stroker’ engines. The Jeep engine is a 4.6L, with 300HP and 340 Ft/lbs torque, it is a direct replacement for the standard 4.0 or 4.2L engine in a Wrangler or Cherokee. The LT1 series offers from 400 to 500HP, naturally aspirated. They can build up to 700 HP ‘boosted’ versions too. The LT1 series is custom built to be a direct replacement to your current LT1 engine. Lastly, the LSx engine is a 400HP (Naturally aspirated) to 1200HP (boosted) engine. These engines are custom built to fit your vehicle. So, no matter what you need, whether it is a race engine, a street rod engine, or a naturally aspirated power plant for your toy, Chad Golen is the man to see, and the GM LS2 engine is one of the premiere power plants to use! The team at Golen High Performance Engines can build you a engine that OTHERS will never forget. They also have an online shop, so you can purchase parts directly online for your Golen engine. Visit the website at to see the video library of engines they have produced. From Pro golfer, Jack Nicklaus to Kuwaiti royals, everyone, worldwide enjoys a Golen Engine!

How Can I Make The LS Engine Even Better?

The LS series engine was designed to be the only V-8 power plant for rear wheel drive GM cars and trucks. With that in mind, it became the most popular engine for modification in Hot Rod/Kit, street and strip, and even marine and light aircraft use! The LS is the easiest engine to build power from in the General Motors line.  The LS1 Engine was first introduced in 1997, with 345 HP, and 300 Ft Lbs of torque. Highly acceptable numbers for a stock engine at the time! It was used in the Vette from 97 till 2004, when GM introduced the LS6, which was a LS1 High Performance Engine.  To this day, it is still an LS series engine that powers the Vette.

The number of aftermarket performance parts, and the technology in the speed shops is crazy! One such speed shop, that emphasizes power and performance, is Golen Engine Performance in Hudson, NH. USA. At Golen, they have the knowledge and experience to build you a “moderately” powerful 400 HP engine, a “silly sick” 700+ HP LS1 High Performance engine, or a raging 1200 HP LSx beast! They have the shop to meet and exceed all your expectations, including a complete dyno room, where they test each engine after it is complete. There is nothing the team at Golen Engine Performance can’t do to meet your LS1 dreams! They have even built high performance engines for power boats! Contact them today, explain what your horsepower needs are, and they will build you an LS1 to satisfy your need for speed!
