GM Performance Parts believes that everyone should be able to afford a high quality, high performance GM V-8 without going broke.

This is the crate engine for you.

A 350 that's been stepped up in power!

You won't go broke finishing off your project car with our 350 HO Deluxe crate engine! It's packed with all the features you need to get a reliable 333 horsepower and 381 lb.-ft. of torque from a dependable, time-tested combination of GM Performance Parts.

Designed by our in-house engineers to give you maximum return for your hot rod dollar, the 350 HO Deluxe is a great choice for your small-block crate engine needs.

The 350 HO is based on a tough, Chevy four-bolt block that holds a strong nodular iron crankshaft, good rods, and aluminum pistons. The high-lift camshaft gives the engine its own unique, aggressive idle. The cam is based on the same one found in 1965-67 Corvette 327 engines, but it has even more lift and duration.

Complete from top to bottom, the 350 HO comes pre-assembled with the intake manifold, carburetor, and distributor.

The Iconic 350-Based “ZZ” Engine Family from Chevrolet

Chevrolet Performance’s new ZZ6 delivers more power than any 350 Small-Block ever installed in a production vehicle. Rated at 405 hp and 406 lb.-ft. of torque, it derives its range-topping performance from unique, lightweight aluminum cylinder heads that enable optimal airflow at high rpm.

The cylinder head casting is based on the proven Fast Burn design, with large intake runners and 2.00/1.55-inch valves. Beehive-style valve springs deliver greater high-rpm performance and durability. Their egg-shaped profiles have less reciprocating mass in motion, require less spring pressure for greater valve control and handle valve train stresses more efficiently. They allow the ZZ6 to rev higher to make the most of every cubic inch of air drawn through it.

The ZZ6 also uses an aggressive hydraulic roller camshaft that supports the engine’s high-rpm airflow capability while maintaining excellent low-speed drivability. This Base crate engine kit includes the intake manifold, distributor, water pump, damper and flexplate – and the distinctive, racing-inspired valve covers that distinguish this crate engine as the latest in the ZZ legacy!

Extra Cubic Inches Deliver Greater Torque For Your Truck!

Got a pre-1980 GM truck with a tired Small-Block? Forget the rebuild and take your trusty truck’s capability to the next level with our big-torque HT383 crate engine. Its extra displacement and unique parts are designed to build a wide, flat torque curve that maintains at least 400 lb.-ft. between 2,500 and 4,000 rpm. The 323 hp and 444 lb.-ft. of torque is power you simply won’t get with a stock-type rebuild. Built for true truck strength, the engine starts with a cast-iron block with four-bolt main caps – a strength-enhancing feature most production truck blocks don’t have. We then fill the block with a forged steel crankshaft and a smooth hydraulic roller camshaft, then top it off with iron Vortec heads. Its 9.1:1 compression ratio is perfect for regular gasoline at all altitudes and engine loads. We deliver the HT383 with an aluminum intake manifold, ready for you to swap over the accessories from your tired engine. It’s also backed by a 24-month/80,000 km limited warranty.

New Fast Burn Heads Add High-RPM Performance And Durability

We’ve added greater high-rpm durability to the CT400 racing engine with new Fast Burn heads that feature beehive-type valve springs and complementing valvetrain components. The beehive springs enable greater high-rpm performance and durability. They allow the engine to rev higher to make the most of every cubic inch of air drawn through it.

The new, lightweight aluminum cylinder head casting – distinguished by new Bowtie logos cast into the ends – is based on the proven Fast Burn design, with large intake runners and 2.00/1.55-inch valves.

The CT400 racing engine has a tough bottom end, anchored by a forged steel crankshaft and hypereutectic pistons installed in a brand-new block with four-bolt mains. The assembly also includes an open-plenum high-rise intake manifold and 1.5:1-ratio aluminum roller rockers.
