This is the short block set we use for most of our builds north of 1,000 hp. Read on to see why.
- Dart SHP Pro Block
- 30% Higher Tensile Strength than the Original Dart SHP Block
- Callies' Fully Counterweighted (CCW) Magnum Crankshaft
- Calico Coated Rod and Main Bearings
- Callies Ultra Connecting Rods - H-Beam, I-Beam or I-Beam Enforcer
- Diamond R-Series 2,000HP Rated Pistons

The Dart LS Next SHP Pro is the newest in Dart's line of LS Next engines blocks. The difference between the "Pro" and the SHP LS Next block is the metallurgy. The Pro has a higher nickel content for 30% higher tensile strength. That means it can handle that much more power. We use the "Pro" because the better metallurgy is a big upgrade at a relatively low cost.
SHP Line Features
- Full side skirts to accommodate OE oil pans
- Accepts LS style Oil filters
- Retains all factory bolt hole locations
LS Next Features
Retains all of the LS Next designs features not found in competing blocks including but not limited to:
- Longer cylinder sleeves,
- Priority main oiling
- 4 bolt splayed main saddle structural
Topping off the rotating assembly are Diamond's Race Series pistons which are machined with their newest and most precise CNCs in Clinton Michigan. Among their features :
- 3D milling on piston crowns for ready to install finish
- Valve pockets designed to work with most aftermarket cylinder heads
- Offset pins for quiet operation
- Moly skirt coating for friction loss and skirt wear protection
- Side gas ports for better ring seal
- 2618 material for High HP-NOS-Boost applications
- You can select either the LS3 or LS7 piston design. Dish-type is standard but there are a wide range of options.
