If the Corvette owner in your life wants big power via an engine swap but doesn’t want to deal with building the C5R block we just looked at, this LS376/480 crate motor brings big power with a warranty.

Smith Parts Center put together this 6.2L LS3 engine with their special high performance “hot cam,” and the result is a healthy 480hp and 475lb-ft of torque ? all of which is supported by a 2 year, 50,000 mile warranty. This motor is ready to drop in, bolt down and fire up for just $6,599.
