The Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act, known as the FAST Act, opens the door for the building of turn-key replica vehicles by low-volume manufacturers if builders use engines that meet current model year Clean Air Act standards for the model year in which they are produced.
Under the FAST Act, a low-volume manufacturer can install an engine package that has received an Executive Order (EO) from the California Air Resources Board (CARB) for the model year in which the vehicle is produced†. Chevrolet Performance understands that as a low-volume manufacturer, you need to ensure your turn-key replica vehicles have an engine that meets FAST Act restrictions before replica vehicles can be sold to eagerly awaiting customers.
Chevrolet Performance is an innovator in the aftermarket powertrain industry with the E-ROD Crate Engine System. The Chevrolet Performance E-ROD Crate Engine System is currently the only OEM engine to have been granted a CARB EO.† We are working to obtain EOs for GM’s E-Rod Crate Engine Systems for past model-year replica vehicles for use by low-volume manufacturers under the FAST Act.
The Chevrolet Performance 6.2L LT1 (455 hp @6000 rpm and 465 lb-ft of torque), 6.2L LS3 (430 hp @5900 rpm and 425 lb-ft of torque) and supercharged 6.2L LSA (556 hp @6100 rpm and 551 lb-ft of torque) engines are also available in convenient Connect and Cruise packages, with manual or automatic transmissions included.
