Drop 755 HP Into Your Car

Drop 755 HP Into Your Car

October 18, 2018 0 By Laura

Are you ready for an engine swap? Well GM is going to offer the Corvette ZR1’s LT5 Monstrous 755-HP V8 as a crate engine. Yep, you read that right, Chevy will sell you a brand new LT5 small block 755-hp, 6.2-liter V8 engine, the same one that comes in the new 2019 Corvette ZR1.

755 hp-1Unfortunately, Chevy hasn’t released much information on the LT5 crate engine yet, like availability and pricing. We can only guess it will not be too much more than the Camaro ZL1’s LT4 (now available in E-ROD form) price of a little over $13,000.

Other unknown items are if it’ll be sold in one of Chevy’s Connect & Cruise packages, which pairs the engine with a suitable transmission, or in E-ROD form, which makes it emissions-legal in California.

All these questions will be answered soon, as GM is set to show off this engine at the SEMA show in two weeks (Oct 30 – Nov 2, 2018). One of GM’s displays will be a custom-built, LT5-powered 1973 Chevelle Laguna. The Chevelle features a hood cut out to accommodate the LT5’s big supercharger and other styling details inspired by NASCAR cup cars of the period.

What would you drop this LT5 in?
