Default Who has leftover LS6 crate engines?

Engine blew in my 03 Z and GM says the motor is no longer available. It will be covered by warranty and my dealer said to locate a new engine and they may be able to purchase that for me. Does anyone know who might have left over stock of these engines or where to check?

Last I heard some Cadillac dealers were still able to get these for CTS-Vs.
I believe youre just an oil pan swap away from a factory replacement.

List of dealer that have the engines, #1 link is a service long block and the #2 is a complete LS6 without ECU and Wire Harness. If I were you I would give the the list of dealer on #2 more new parts and less time to drop it in. If link #2 doesn't work go to # 3 and search part # 17801268 and add it to the cart it will show a list of dealers that have it in stock. Below is part of the list with the lowest cost, there are many more on the list with the highest at $7,879.50.

I wish it worked like that ... it's going through GM major guard warranty which means they will most likely put in a used engine UNLESS I can find a new one somewhere for them they said.

The oil pan is the only thing that needs to be changed.

They shouldn't have a problem pulling stock from another dealer that is willing to transfer. When I worked at the dealership we did it at cost + 10% and shipping cost but that was 20 years ago.

I know forum sponser RichieRichZ06 that is the parts manager at Able Chevy in Rio Vista, CA has been able to source them for a few local members. Maybe try contacting him, although I was trying order something from him today and he out until Thursday.

gotta question.....how is warranty covering this? you did say 03 didnt you? did you buy some extended warranty package from someone? I ask because of my 03 valve spring failure. i have major damage and the motor will have to be pulled.

Yea I bought GM major guard warranty with the car when I got the car which is still active and covers this. They ended up finding me a brand new motor and GM approved it so it's on the way. Thanks for all the help.

Great news now you will have a new engine for the remainder of the GM major guard warranty.
