LS 5.3L 450HP Crate Engine

Starting at $8,950

The LS 327 Cubic Inch next generation crate engine is designed to look cool and produce 450+HP. This package design will fit almost any early hot rod. We will custom paint the engine block, oil pan, timing cover, water pump, valley pan, and cylinder heads to the color of your choice at no additional cost. The polished intake manifold and conventional outer perimeter bolt pattern valve covers are a standard feature in this design to keep the yesteryear look going. This engine package will also arrive with a custom made bracket to relocate coil packs for an added clean install look. We can also outfit this engine with a serpentine belt kit if you would like.
