Boost v. Build
Engine Masters Ep. 41 Premieres Nov 7
In the modern world of bulletproof bottom ends, boost has become the go-to for bolt-on power. But is it really the best way to get there? On this episode of Engine Masters, the guys take a bone-stock 5.3 truck LS and all the versions of build and boost. They test power on a stock naturally aspirated engine, stock with a turbo, build it naturally aspirated with heads, cam, and intake, and then finally run it built with the turbo back in action. The choice is up to you—well, up to you and your budget—but the guys will give the guidance to know the best place to spend your dough.
