SAME GREAT GEN-V LT1 TECHNOLOGY, NOW IN A CARB-COMPLIANT PACKAGE.

Chevrolet Performance has expanded its portfolio of CARB-compliant crate engines to include the new LT1 E-Rod engine. The LT1 E-Rod offers the technology, power and efficiency of the Gen-V small-block platform combined with the convenience and certification of an E-Rod package.

Introduced on the seventh-generation Corvette Stingray, the LT1 6.2L opened the next chapter in the long, historic legacy of the small-block engine — and it gives your project vehicle a high-tech transplant with an outstanding balance of performance and efficiency.

The LT1 is architecturally similar to the LS family of small-block engines, but with a unique block casting, cylinder head design, oiling system, and more. It also combines advanced technologies, including Direct Injection and continuously Variable Valve Timing, to support an advanced combustion system.

Our LT1 crate engine is rated at 455 horsepower and 455 lb-ft of torque, and it is offered with a wet-sump or dry-sump oiling system. A controller specially designed for retro-fit application is included.
