LS1 LS2 LS3 Pushrods
LS1 LS2 LS3 Pushrods for the 5.7L, 6.0L 6.2L Engines
Pushrods play a critical role in maximizing LS engine performance. LS1, LS2, and LS3 pushrod lengths and compatibility with LS7 lifters. Discover how the right pushrods can unlock the full potential of your LS engine.
LS1 pushrods have a common length of 7.400 inches, ensure proper valvetrain geometry and optimal performance on “factory” style builds and cam swaps when using LS7 lifters in an LS1 engine. This 7.400" length most times maintains a proper lifter preload. Total Performance recommends using a LS pushrod length checker like Comp Cams 7702-1 tool to determine the correct pushrod length for your LS1 engine.
LS engines may require shorter or longer pushrods due to differences in valvetrain geometry from modifications from a factory spec engine. The exact pushrod length depends on factors such as camshaft specs, rocker arm types, and cylinder head modifications (decking heads). Consult an engine builder or use a pushrod length checker like the Comp Cams 7702-1 tool for the correct pushrod length.
Upgrade your pushrods to unlock the true power potential of your LS1, LS2, or LS3 engine. If using a cheaper pushrod, they can be prone to flexing which results in lost valve train stability and lost lift & incorrect valve timing. Don’t compromise on hi performance pushrods.
