Our engineers grafted the bottom end of the legendary ZZ4 with the horsepower-building Fast Burn cylinder heads to create the Fast Burn 385. The result is 385 horsepower and a satisfying 385 lb-ft of torque — with no less than 300 lb-ft from 1500 rpm to 5700 rpm.
The foundation is a sturdy iron block with four-bolt mains, a forged steel crankshaft, an aggressive hydraulic roller camshaft, and durable high-silicon pistons. As a Turn-Key crate engine, it comes with the distributor, carburetor, and balancer installed — along with a starter, fuel pump, air conditioning pump, alternator, front-end accessory drive kit, and more — all in one convenient, all-inclusive package!
The lightweight, Vortec-style Fast Burn aluminum heads have large, 210-cc intake runners and 2.00-inch/1.55-inch valves. Their 62-cc combustion chambers are uniquely shaped to promote quicker, more complete combustion.
If you want to finish off the engine yourself, try the Fast Burn 385 Base engine (P/N 12496769) at a lower price. It includes only the intake manifold, distributor, water pump, damper, and flexplate.
