Andreas Arthursson, who hails from Sweden, recently recorded the quickest pass in history for an LS-powered race car, lighting up the scoreboards with a 6.73 at 203 miles per hour in his Chevrolet Monte Carlo.
Arthursson formerly campaigned an LS-powered Chevy II that had run as quick as 7.47-seconds at 202, and after retiring that machine at the conclusion of the 2010 season, set his sights on the longstanding record held by American Mike Moran at 6.86 set back in 2006.
The aerodynamic, tube chassis Monte Carlo, weighing in at 2,550 pounds, is motivated by an LSX-based bullet with a Callies Dragonslayer 3.825″ crankshaft, GRP aluminum rods, and 4.125″ pistons from Diamond. A set of CNC-machined TFS 235 cathedral port cylinder heads, a custom intake manifold, a Weldon 2345 fuel pump, and MSD voltage booster with a Viper V88 ECU and MSD 8245 coils round out the LS mill.
Feeding the boost necessary to create the 1,800 horsepower that propels the Monte Carlo into the sixes are a pair of Precision PT7675 billet T4 turbos controlled by a set of 46mm waste gates.
Making these horsepower numbers more impressive is the fact that unleaded fuel is illegal for use in Europe, meaning Arthursson is making nearly 2,000 horses and running in excess of 200 miles per hour on Sunoco GT+ 104 octane unleaded fuel.
