One of the biggest hurdles with building a tall deck LSX block is finding the right accessory drive brackets to fit the tall deck block, The LSX Concepts LS brackets have been specifically designed to fit both standard and tall deck LSX blocks similar to the RHS or GM LSX Bowtie Block. We designed our accessory drive brackets to fit multiple deck heights. Our bracket will accommodate anything from the standard deck (9.200) to the taller decks (9.700) of the LSX blocks. It doesn't matter if you are running a junkyard LS1/LS3 or a 9.700 deck height LSX block. Our LS brackets have slotted bolts holes matching the lower block-mounting bosses to accommodate virtually any deck height for the LSX block.
