Don't let this happen to YOU!!

Recommended Posts

Starting with a great foundation is the way to build solid home that will stand for years to come. This is the same aspect when it comes to your motor, especially your 3.5L EcoBoost motor.

Take a look at the photos and see what happens when a stock block is pushed to the breaking point. The stock metals constructed to form the stock rod is not strong enough to handle the added boost and engine rpm. So in-turn they will crack and continue to spin inside the block causing the block to crack and even holes in the walls of the block. This is absolute catastrophic failure and will be costing you a boat load of cash!

One way to avoid this from happening and making your wallet very sad is to start with a great foundation as explained with the home example. When you are looking to push anywhere from 450 or more wheel hp/tq a new piston and rod is necessary. Here at Livernois Motorsports we have developed a solution for this issue. After many years of testing and building EcoBoost motors, we have seen all of the breaks, cracks, and destruction that could possibly happen to these blocks. That is why we have one of the best kits on the market. The Powerstorm Ultra High Performance rods and Powerstorm Ultra High Performance pistons are the best starting point. They will be able to handle all the power you can throw at them, being constructed of 4340 aircraft quality vacuum degassed rods and 2618 forged pistons.

During this process, we highly suggest to add in a set of Powerstorm Oil Pump gears made of 4140 chromolly steel. This will eliminate the possibility of the stock oil pump gears breaking with added crankshaft vibration, a very common cause of failure.

Below is a list of our product lines like Powerstorm pistons, rods, and short blocks!

Still enjoying my built, platform record setting LMS Ecoboost motor. Day in. Day out. Track or on the streets.


I am looking forward to the continued expansion of quality LMS products being offered in 2017 and beyond for the SHO / 3.5L Transverse platform.


Following my current audio build, my next big projects for my own SHO for 2017, will absolutely, and unequivocally involve contacting LMS for addt'l fueling upgrades, and (fingers crossed) entertaining them into fabricating a true, successfully functioning built trans/drivetrain unlike the unsuccessful attempts tried by other vendors.


LMS has never once steered me wrong, and given their completely unblemished, failure free record, I am confident in all of their offerings for the Ecoboost platform.
