If there’s one company that we love to see at SEMA, it’s Chevrolet Performance. They are always working on creative new parts and accessories perfect for the LS and LT swap crowd. And for 2020, nothing has changed. Even without a physical trade show to attend, Chevrolet Performance has many new items that will surely grab the attention of any enthusiast.
Gen IV LS3 Long Blocks
If you’re looking for an LS-based engine for your swap project, Chevrolet Performance has added a few more options to its line up with the Gen IV LS3 based long blocks. According to Chevrolet Performance, these engines are identical to the complete LS3, LS376 rated at 480 horsepower, and the LS376 rated at 525 horsepower. The difference is that they have removed some of the parts from these engines to lower the cost and allow builders to outfit the blocks as they choose. These packages are shipped less intake manifold, throttle body, fuel rails, injectors, coil packs, ignition harness, and exhaust manifold.
- LS3 long block (PN 19420384) is $6,288.00
- LS376-480 (PN 19420384) list for $6,730.00
- LS376-525 (PN 19420386) sells for $7,358.00
LS427 Wet Sump Gen IV Engine
If you’re looking for more naturally aspirated power for your vehicle and the sound of 427 cubic-inches has a nice ring to it, Chevrolet Performance’s new LS427 (PN 19421004) might be the ultimate crate engine. Unlike the original, this powerplant is now offered with a wet sump oiling system making it an easy choice for any hot rod.
The LS427 offers a larger camshaft than the iconic Z06 and Z28 packages and cranks out an impressive 570 horsepower. The manufacturer’s suggested retail price for the wet sump LS427 is $15,993 and includes the intake manifold, fuel injectors, coil packs, plug wires, drive-by-wire throttle body, fuel rail, and injectors. You will need to purchase an engine control system and harness available from your Chevrolet Performance dealer.
