Here in the US, spring is on its way. For some, this brings thoughts of green grass, flowers, and plans for warmer weather activities outside. For car lovers, though, thoughts turn to ripping the winter covers off of their stored vehicles, oil changes, and fluid flushes in prep to start the spring and summer cruising and racing season. The warmer weather also means those looking to finish their project car or those building an upgrade lists can get back into their garage to start the work. If a new engine is on that upgrade list, Chevrolet Performance has just the power plant series for you.
At the 2012 SEMA show, Chevrolet Performance introduced two new crate engines in the LSX series: the LSX376-B15 (p/n 19299306) and LSX376-B8 (p/n 19171049). The LSX line is based on the battle-proven LSX block— a cast iron cylinder block with an LS7 pedigree.
Additional material, 6-bolt mains, priority main oiling system, and a unique 6-bolt per cylinder clamping system allow the LSX block to provide increased power potentials for Chevrolet Performance enthusiasts. Top LSX Shootout competitors are approaching the 3,000 horsepower mark with this small block Chevy. Yes, you read that correctly — 3,000 horsepower.
The LSX376-B15 and LSX376-B8 capitalize on this technology by offering enthusiasts a complete crate engine full of premium components to help reach more streetable horsepower levels. The LSX376-B15 is ideal for enthusiasts who have added forced induction in the LS3 or L99 production engine, found the limit, and are now looking for a more capable engine.
With enough boost and expert tuning, the LSX376-B15 can help a Camaro owner make over 1,000 horsepower—that extra punch that makes summer driving more fun or leave your competition in the dust on the track.
The Chevrolet Performance LSX line of crate engines is available now at your local Chevrolet dealer or online.
