The LS3 is the power behind the Chevy Camaro SS. It's rated at 430 hp in this new Connect & Cruise kit, offering the lightweight advantage of an aluminum cylinder block, aluminum heads and a composite intake manifold over cast iron engines in early cars. It's backed by the 4L65-E four-speed overdrive automatic, which enables great highway cruising performance and fuel economy with the durability of hardened internal parts and five-pinion gearsets. E-Rod package also available.
Each Connect & Cruise kit delivers a brand-new, fully assembled crate engine, an electronically controlled overdrive transmission, electronic control modules for both and the engine control hardware to get it all running in your project vehicle – including the mass airflow sensor, oxygen sensors and even the special throttle pedal for the engines' electronic throttle bodies.
Chevrolet Performance engineers matched the engines with their respective transmission, ensuring it was up to the task of channeling big power with absolute dependability. The engine controller is specially calibrated to run the engine without some of the production-vehicle features that aren't required in an older vehicle. That means no "trouble" codes and no need for third-party tuning. Better still, the systems' unique SuperMatic transmission controller is designed to work with the engine controller for a seamless, "plug and play" installation that is quick, easy and intuitive. Detailed instructions outline all the necessary steps.
The engineers did all the hard work of designing and calibrating perfectly matched powertrain systems – and we've covered them with a 24-month/50,000-mile limited warranty (see cheverolet.com/performance or your Chevrolet Performance retailer for complete details). All you have to do is install them and start cruising!
