New LS364/450 Crate Engine

It’s that time of year again! The SEMA show is going on in Las Vegas, and Chevrolet Performance has released a bunch of new parts. While most people are talking about some of the newly released high-power, high-cost crate engines, we’re excited about a new budget crate motor that’s sure to be a hit for anyone doing a restomod. It’s the Chevrolet Performance 19370163 LS364/450HP Gen III 6.0L LQ9 LS Series Engine.

We’ve got all the specs and information about this new budget crate engine below, straight from the horse’s mouth.

“Chevrolet Performance engineers have developed the LS364/450 as a value-driven foundation for hot rod builders and enthusiasts looking to give their earlier LS-powered vehicles a high-performance shot in the arm. Starting with a strong, economical iron cylinder block and durable rotating assembly, the LS 6.0L features the high-lift LS6 camshaft and the deep-breathing LS3 aluminum cylinder heads. It’s a strong combination with exceptional horsepower and a broad torque band. It is also fuel injection-capable, using production-based components offered in this catalog.

“The LS364/450 is designed with the early-style 24X crankshaft and 1X camshaft sensors, enabling easier retro-fit installation in early LS-powered vehicles, including 1998-2002 Camaros, C5 Corvettes, 1999-2006 full-size trucks and SUVs, and other LS vehicles.

“We offer the LS364/450 exclusively as a long-block assembly, without the induction system, ignition system or front-end accessory drive system, allowing builders to transfer components from their early LS-powered vehicle or complete a custom build with the components of their choice. An intake manifold that matches the LS3/L92 style rectangular intake ports is required.”
