Choosing the right motor for your project car just got a little easier thanks to Chevy’s latest line of LS Long Block engines, the details of which are highlighted in the following brief video summary.
Coming to us from the official Chevrolet Performance YouTube channel, the following video clocks in at two minutes, 16 seconds, with narration provided by Chevrolet Performance Associate Marketing Manager, Bill Martens.
“Today, I want to give you an overview of the LS Long Block variants so that you can better plan your project,” Martens opens the video.
General Motors is offering LS Long Block replacements for a variety of popular fourth-generation LS engines. These include replacements for the LS3, the LS376/480, the LS376/515, and the LS376/525.
The latest Chevrolet Performance LS Long Blocks are designed as an alternative to outright replacement of an entire 6.2L factory production engine, and each comes with matching components that mirror the respective factory engine. Furthermore, the Long Block can be used with the original engine components, such as the intake and exhaust manifolds, the ignition coils, the fuel rails, the throttle body, and more.
For those builders looking to add their own touch, such as with a supercharger or turbocharger system, the LS Long Block engine could be the perfect starting point. Each LS Long Block is assembled using all-new components and parts, and comes with a six-bolt flange crank that’s mounted in a six-bolt main aluminum block, with LS3 cylinder heads up top.
“Just add your own ignition system, fuel delivery system, intake manifold, and exhaust system, along with a Chevrolet Performance controller system, and you’re ready to go,” Martens explains.
