If you want to take the hassle and heartache out of an engine swap, Chevrolet has 3 new choices for power. To show the world what they are capable of, three classic Chevys were chosen to showcase modern power. First up is a 1967 C/10 truck with the ZZ6 350. This is the ultimate evolution of the original small block, and it uses fuel injection to make 420 horsepower. Next is a 1978 Silverado with the 6.0-liter L96 engine. It is a spicy version of the iron-block LS series that was used in everything from the Escalade to the Camaro SS for over a decade.
The crown jewel of the collection is a NASCAR inspired 1973 Laguna. It has received the supercharged LT5 from the Corvette ZR1. Rated at 755 horsepower and 715 lb-ft of torque. This takes Chevrolet’s crate engine program to almost 50 unique offerings. They have replacement units ranging from the 2.2-liter Ecotec to the 8.1-liter big block and everything in between. These three builds will be featured at Chevrolet’s SEMA booth, so stay with us for complete coverage of the event.
