While the small-block Chevy engine changed hot rodding in the 1950s, the folks at CBM Motorsports spend most of their engineering efforts on the newer LS Series engines. In this Feature Flick, owners Chris Bland and Bruce McKillop give an inside look at the race engine company.

CBM Motorsports builds engines for all applications including sand rails, boats, and muscle cars. With the new direct-injected LT1 engine in the all-new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, the team at CBM Motorsports is excited to explore the potential of the new technology. In the video, McKillop describes the superiority of the LS Series engines compared to older small block Chevy V-8s, while Bland talks about the modern small-block’s displacement and horsepower potential.

Bland began hot rodding cars when he was about 15 years old. After getting involved with drag racing, he learned how to make the most power possible on a small budget by mixing and matching parts. Bland ended up working as a GM technician where McKillop was the parts and service director. Eventually the duo left the dealership to open CBM Motorsports.

Check out the video below to see where CBM Motorsports expects to go next. Don’t forget to stay until the end to see Bland’s daily driver, a car he uses to demonstrate the shop’s capabilities.
