SEMA 2014: Mast Motorsports Continues to Push the Limits of the LS

IMG_0789SEMA

We always look forward to visiting with our friends at Mast Motorsports at the SEMA show; while their booth isn’t exactly what you would call spacious, it’s always filled with interesting things to look at. This year, their LS7 265-series CNC head caught our eye, mostly because it was very familiar to us from a test we did just a little while back.

Mast considers these heads as “medium bore,” intended for 4.000 and larger, but optimized to flow well in smaller-displacement applications. “These are for the guys who are class-limited in terms of engine size,” Horace Mast explained. “We are getting a lot of interest, because they work so well.”

IMG_0791SEMAThe LS7 265 was just one of half a dozen heads the company had on display, and we’d guess that most enthusiasts know them best for their race-winning cylinder heads. But per Mast, a large and growing portion of their business is building complete engines. The Whipple-supercharged one shown here is just a sample – whether you want a 550-650 horse naturally aspirated engine for a “mild” street car, a Black Label crate engine that delivers from 650-750 “on the motor,” or a supercharged 750+ horsepower monster, Mast has a catalog full of choices.

And, if by chance there isn’t the particular combination of displacement, aspiration, and horsepower you’ve been dreaming of, Mast can build pretty much anything you can imagine, and deliver a turn-key engine ready to run in your car. They can also supply a wide range of engine control solutions for your own build, along with the expertise to help get you up and running.
