Chevrolet has been building crate motors for racers and enthusiasts for over 40 years. But in 2007, they released an engine that truly changed the game: the LSX. What’s so special about it? Well, it can be had with a big-block’s displacement (one of the more popular sizes is the 454) but it only occupies the space of a small-block. Additionally, it produces far more than one horsepower per cubic inch: it actually makes 620 hp in stock trim and can withstand up to 2500hp!
As SEMA is THE show for the aftermarket industry, Chevy obviously brought a strong contingent of performance parts to show what you can do with your own street car, race car, or dragster and it wasn’t limited to the LSX powerplant. Nor was it limited to carburation: Chevy Performance’s Connect & Cruise Crate Systems are fuel-injected and virtually plug-and-play. Included are all necessary engine control systems, transmission, and torque converter. Even the vaunted LS7, added this year, (that made the Z06 a legend) is available for purchase. And for you Californians, Chevy Performance’s E-Rod Crate Engines are CARB legal for your pre-1996 project vehicle. It might just be time for an engine swap in your 1993 Toyota Camry daily… Head over and see what they have, here at ChevroletPerformance.com.
