LS and LT swaps are still super hot, even after twenty years of being part of mainstream hot-rodding. Despite that, some of our favorite companies to work with are continuously releasing new products for gear heads like us, to make things a little bit easier.
Such is the case with this new Mockup Replica Block from our friends at Summit Racing. Now it should be said that a lightweight mockup block for such a situation isn’t exactly a brand new concept at all. In fact, Summit also offers other versions made from plastic and foam, but this particular example is all new, citing a press release that just slid across our desk this morning.
Summit Racing™ Mockup Replica Blocks
Summit Racing™ Mockup Replica Blocks are light-weight and ship disassembled for ease of shipping and storage. The individual panels are easily assembled with tabs and slots for superior rigidity and accuracy compared to bolt-together types. Steel resists the heat from welding, so custom motor-mounts can be fabricated right on the block.
- Easily storable
- Lighter weight than OEM block
- Easy to fit and maneuver to ensure clearance
- Custom motor-mounts can be fabricated right on the block
