The Corvette Z06's Supercharged LT4 Powerplant Now Available as a Crate Engine

All you folks out there with a project car that has an empty engine bay just begging for more horsepower should be thrilled with the latest news from Chevrolet.

The Corvette Z06 LT4 6.2-liter supercharged powerplant is now available as a crate engine.

Best of all, while the price isn’t overly cheap, for what you’re getting, it’s a whale of a deal at $15,625 for a motor that will crank out 650 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque.

In the Z06, the LT4 coupled with the eight-speed automatic transmission is good for a 0-60 time less than 3 seconds, 2.95 seconds to be exact.

What do you think it would it do in, say, a 1970 Chevelle or a 1957 Bel Air? The possibilities are endless!

The Chevrolet Performance part number to order the LT4 6.2L SC Dry-Sump Crate Engine is 19332702. Also available is the LT4 Controller Kit (19331517) and the LT4 Dry-Sump Accessory Drive System (19322614).

While the Z06 powerplant has had some highly publicized problems with engine and supercharger failure, the ones we’ve heard about are a miniscule, miniscule percentage of the total number of LT4s out there on the streets and the tracks.

Somebody out there is going to have a heck of a project car when they insert this motor!
