When it comes to performance innovations that save time, money and guesswork, Chevrolet Performance once again leads the way!
Chevrolet Performance pioneered the concept of crate engines more than four decades ago, and continues to lead the industry with their unprecedented Connect & Cruise crate powertrain systems - factory-engineered engine and transmission combinations that include all the electronic control modules, wiring harnesses and other key components.
Chevrolet Performance engineers matched the engines and transmissions for optimal performance and durability, so you can wring out every horsepower from them with total confidence! The specially calibrated controllers are designed for retrofit installations in older vehicles, for easier and quicker installation and operation without the need for third-party tuning.
The convenience of a crate engine, the assurance of factory validate performance and the value of an inclusive package - that's what you get with Chevrolet Performance's Connect & Cruise crate powertrain systems.
Each kit delivers a brand-new, fully assembled crate engine, a brand-new or remanufactured electronically controlled overdrive transmission, electronic control modules for both, and the engine control hardware to get it all running in your project vehicle - including the mass airflow sensor, oxygen sensors and even the special throttle pedal for the engines' electronic throttle bodies.
Chevrolet Performance engineers matched the engines with their respective transmissions, ensuring they are up to the task of channeling big power with absolute dependability. The engine controller is specially calibrated to run the engine without some of the production-vehicle features that aren't required in an older vehicle. That means no "trouble" codes and no need for third-party tuning. Better still, the systems' unique SuperMatic transmission controllers are designed to work with the engine controllers for a seamless, "plug-and-play" installation that is quick, easy and intuitive. Detailed instructions outline all the necessary steps.
The engineers did all the hard work of designing and calibrating perfectly matched powertrain systems - and they covered them with a 24-month/50,000-mile limited warranty.
LS3 430HP Engine
As the standard engine in the fifth-generation Camaro SS and C6 Corvette, the high-revving, deep-breathing LS3 6.2L is poised to go down in history as one of Chevrolet's best and most versatile engines. It's no surprise that enthusiasts and builders have made it one of the most popular LS swap engines. It's a brute of a small block with 376 cubic inches just waiting for you.
The LS series engine has broken new ground for efficiency and performance from a pushrod platform engine. The LS3 is filled with components designed for high performance and longevity. In the bottom end, the aluminum 6-bolts/main block features 4.065-inch bores and 3.622-inch stroke. A nodular iron crankshaft, powdered metal rods, and aluminum pistons (10.7:1 compression ratio) round out a rev-happy short block. The sturdy reciprocating assembly combined with L92-type rectangular-port heads deliver a 10.7:1 compression ratio. A high-lift, hydraulic roller camshaft complements the LS3's tremendous airflow capability and enhances its broad torque curve. Out-of-the-crate Horsepower is 430, with an impressive 425 lb.-ft. torque.
This LS3 crate engine comes complete from the SS-specific oil pan to the ignition system. It also includes the intake manifold assembly with injectors and throttle body, exhaust manifolds, water pump, balancer, 58x reluctor wheel and 14-inch automatic-transmission flexplate. The SS oil pan doesn't suit all applications. So you will need to use the vehicle specific oil pan for original LS-powered vehicles or Chevrolet Performance's Muscle Car Oil Pan Kit (p/n 809-19212593) for older vehicles.Specifications:
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 that may or may not come with a used engine, these controllers are calibrated for installation in older vehicles. That means many of the features required for late-model production vehicles are "turned off," because they're not required in older cars and trucks. That means features that may trigger a diagnostic trouble code and possibly affect performance - requiring additional tuning - are not enabled.
These inclusive kits deliver all the components required to plug into the engine and get it running - from the controller itself and the accompanying wire harness to the mass airflow sensor, oxygen sensors and even a throttle pedal assembly for engines equipped with an electronic throttle body. The kits also include detailed instructions to help you do it right the first time, even if you have no experience.
Each Chevrolet Performance controller kit is a true stand-alone system. All that's needed to get a vehicle running with it are power and ground sources, a high-pressure fuel pump and an electric cooling fan.
