LS9 Crate Craving?
Craving an LS9 crate motor for your latest hot rod or street machine
project? Well GM Performance Parts has you covered. Beginning in fall 2009,
the stuffed and supercharged LS9 engine will be available as a crate motor
ready to tackle the street or track. With more than 630 horsepower, the LS9 is the
most powerful engine GM has ever produced.
Corvette Engine Build Experience -- Experience the LS9 Build (HD)
Watch as a 638 horsepower 6.2L
super-charged LS9 engine is hand built from start to finish at the GM
Performance Build Center in Wixom, Michigan. The LS9 is made for the
Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 and the most powerful engine General Motors builds.
With the new Corvette Engine Build Experience, customers of the Corvette
ZR1 or Z06 choose an option to come to Wixom and, under supervision of
skilled professional engine builders, actually build the very LS7 or LS9
Engine that will later be installed their own Corvette. Please see your
Chevrolet dealer for more information on the Corvette Engine Build
Experience or facebook.com/corvette.
LS engine specialist Thomson Automotive combined a 427-cid LSX short block,
GMPP LSX-LS9 heads and an LS9 Supercharger to generate 710 horsepower and 780 lb-ft.
It's a great combination for a 1968 Camaro, a 2010 Camaro or any other hot rod or
resto-mod you can think of!
1969 Camaro ~ 427ci LS3 ~ TEST DRIVE!
Why would someone take out a perfectly running 400hp engine that commutes
800 miles a week to/from work, runs 13's in the 1/4 mile and gets 18+ mpg?
Ooh, Ooh, I know..............BECAUSE THEY CAN!!!!
The new engine is a 427ci modified LS3 crate engine from TurnKey Engine
Supply. This 550+ horsepower all aluminum
powerplant will breathe through Edelbrock full length headers and x-pipe
while passing power through a Tremec TKO600 5-speed transmission.
The old mill coming out was a perfectly running 4-bolt 350 GM crate motor
w/ Edelbrock ETEC heads & roller cam. Performance at a Gearhead Garage
track day put the car consistently into the 13's.
Other upgrades this round include: an aluminum dual pass radiator w/ twin
SPAL electric fans, a Rick's Stainless fuel tank w/ internal Walbrough fuel
pump, a hydraulic cluctch conversion kit, DSE 7-speed wiper motor & DSE600
steering box, Hydratech Braking System hydroBoost w/ Wilwood master cylinder, adjustable
proportioning valve and a Hurst Roll Control Line-Lock.
Corvette racing @ 205mph or 330km/h
UPDATE: Just to prove that it's got the goods, GM has released a video of
its new supercharged Corvette stretching its legs to a massive 205mph
(330km/h) top speed.
At a time when car makers are showing off every imaginable fuel-saving
gizmo, General Motors does the math on the 6.2-litre V8 engine in its new
Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 and comes up with more oomph than it expected.
The company's powertrain gurus found that the LS9 engine cranks out 476kW
(638bhp) - 20 horsepower more than the
estimates they made when GM took the covers off the ZR1 before Christmas.
Simply, the engine is rated at 76kW (103bhp) per litre of displacement or
1.7bhp per cubic inch (6.2 litres is equal to 376 cubic inches).
All that power will push the Corvette ZR1 to a top speed of more than
322km/h, says GM. And torque? The revised official figure is now 810Nm.
The key to power and torque is a Roots-type Supercharger with four-lobe rotors that sits atop
the LS9 engine. A liquid-to-air Intercooler is integrated into the Supercharger's housing.
The engine will be hand-built at GM's Performance Build Centre in suburban
Detroit, the same plant that hand-builds the LS7 V8 used in the Corvette
