Chevrolet Performance E-ROD LSA Supercharged 6.2L 556HP Connect & Cruise Automatic Transmission Powertrain System
CARB-Certified OE Crate Engine Convenience, Assurance, and Value
When it comes to performance innovations that save time, money, and guesswork, Chevrolet Performance leads the way. Their groundbreaking E-ROD crate engine packages are the only OE crate engine solution that enables authorized, emissions-compliant high-performance engine replacements for approximately 20 million pre-1996 cars, trucks, and SUVs in California regardless of the make, model, or original powertrain.
E-ROD Engines deliver on the expectations of a new generation of hot rodders and custom car builders for whom better fuel economy and lower emissions play more important roles in their projects. The E-ROD LSA kit is the latest to receive a California Air Resources Board Executive Order Number, following the original E-ROD LS3 and E-ROD 5.3L. It's CARB-certified for 1995-and-earlier vehicles that predate OBD-II onboard emissions diagnostics. The E-ROD LSA is the same basic power plant that comes in the award-winning Cadillac CTS-V; this supercharged engine is rated at 556 horsepower and 551 ft/lbs torque.
All E-ROD systems include complete emissions equipment, such as catalytic converters, fuel tank evaporative emissions canister, and engine control module calibrated for a balance of performance and efficiency. E-ROD represents guilt-free, street-legal high-performance for your vintage vehicle. Chevrolet Performance continues to lead the industry with unprecedented Connect & Cruise Crate Powertrain Systems (factory-engineered engine and transmission combinations that include all electronic control modules, wiring harnesses, and other key components). Chevrolet Performance engineers match engines and transmissions for optimal performance and durability so you can get every bit of horsepower with total confidence! The specially calibrated controllers are designed for retrofitting older vehicles to simplify installation and operation without the need for third-party tuning.
Each kit has a new, fully assembled crate engine; new or remanufactured electronically controlled overdrive transmission; electronic control modules for both; and the engine control hardware to get it all running (e.g. mass airflow sensor, oxygen sensors, and special throttle pedal for electronic throttle bodies). The engine controller is calibrated to run the engine without some of the production vehicle features that aren't required in an older vehicle, which means no trouble codes. Better still, the unique SuperMatic transmission controllers are designed to work with the engine controllers for plug-and-play installation that's quick and intuitive. The engineers did the hard work of designing and calibrating these perfectly matched powertrain systems so Chevrolet Performance backs them with a 24-month/50,000-mile limited warranty.
E-ROD LSA 376ci / 6.2L, 556HP / 551TQ Engine (CARB EO #D-126-33)
The E-ROD LSA 6.2L supercharged engine delivers 556hp with refinement that is rare in the world of high performance. It is smooth, quiet, and well-balanced - all while delivering breathtaking power. The engine features a unique aluminum cylinder block casting that houses a forged steel crankshaft and integrated piston-cooling oil jets, along with high-flow cylinder heads that support the airflow enabled by a 1.9L supercharger with four-lobe, high-twist rotors. The E-ROD LSA comes fully dressed, from the top of the charge-cooled supercharger assembly to the ignition system. A 65psi (450kPa) fuel pump (minimum) is recommended.
Engine Control Modules and Harnesses
A precisely calibrated engine control module is essential to making your fuel-injected LS engine perform in your older vehicle, and Chevrolet Performance is your source for controllers that are designed for easy plug-and-play installation and, in most applications, no need for third-party tuning adjustments. Unlike production controllers, these units are calibrated for installation in older vehicles, which means many of the features required for late-model production vehicles are deactivated because they're not required (i.e. features that may trigger diagnostic trouble codes and/or affect performance are disabled).
Each Chevrolet Performance controller kit is a true stand-alone system. All that's needed to get a vehicle running are power and ground sources, a high-pressure fuel pump and an electric cooling fan.
SuperMatic 4L85-E Four-Speed Automatic Transmission
If you're looking to wring all the horsepower from your engine, look no further than Chevrolet Performance's heavy-duty SuperMatic 4L85-E Four-Speed Automatic Transmission. An extension of the TH400, widely considered one of the greatest transmissions ever manufactured, the 4L85-E continues the tradition of harnessing large outputs of power for optimal performance.
Advantages of the 4L85-E include an improved valve body, overdrive gear, and advanced electronic controls. The result is a transmission that delivers firm shifts, efficiency, and exceptional drivability with a maximum torque capacity of 685 lb-ft.
