BRP Muscle Rods

I have had a email exchange with a tech at Dart regarding the LS Next SHP iron block and he referred me to this company. Anyone familiar with BRP or the block?

Re: BRP Muscle Rods

They make some poorly engineered LS swap mounts etc based around the Hummer pan which hangs very low....

Re: BRP Muscle Rods

Dunno about BRP's stuff. I had run across their website before and blew it off. Darts tech refering me to another outfit with queries about a Dart block bother the heck out of me. It seems like some of the industries best resort to walmart greeters for tech services. 2nd time ive run into this lately.

Great advice. I just replaced my Hummer pan with the Holley for this very reason. I didn't do enough homework when I swapped...

Re: BRP Muscle Rods

BRP is a Good outfit & makes nice stuff. You do have to cherry pick some of the parts. I'm sure they don't make the Oil Pans & Headers.

This is their Tranny Crossmember for a TR6060

Re: BRP Muscle Rods

Do you have a pick of that with the pipes off? I thought the crossmember looked decent in the pics but the plate its cantilevered off of didnt impress me much. No too far off from needing to buy or make one.

Re: BRP Muscle Rods

I doubt any of them are unsafe,and haven't heard of any of the common aftermarket cross members braking off.
sounds like your best solution may be to just build a custom one,even if it's a bit over the top.

Did you see this description at Summit ?

I like how it's setup for a stroker crank. The bottom skirts are extended, a problem for the stock blocks.
