SAM Racing chooses CID LS heads for their 2009 - 2012  All Motor Championship Winning Camaro

LSX world record holder

After maximizing the potential of their C5R heads,  Judson Massingill and the School of Automotive Machining started looking for the best cylinder head to work with for their LSX record setting Camaro.

With a new engine combination under way, it was imperative they find a robust casting with room to move for future development. After looking at many of the available aftermarket heads the crew at the school settled on our CID LS castings as the best choice for their 1000HP LSX.
