We knew it was coming, and Chevrolet did not disappoint when it revealed the 6.2-liter LT4 supercharged V8 as a crate engine option at the 2015 SEMA Show last year. The brand has provided a short informational video to give potential engine swappers a little more information before pulling the trigger, though.
The LT4 is based on the same new architecture as the 6.2-liter LT1 V8, sans supercharger. That’s the LT4’s most significant differentiator. The 1.7-liter Eaton TVS supercharger is more compact than previous applications, and provides nine pounds of boost, spinning at up to 20,000 RPM. The end result is a staunch 650 hp and 650 lb-ft of torque.
