HEAVY-DUTY LS POWER FOR YOUR TRUCK!
Chevrolet Performance’s L96 6.0L crate engine is based on the same work-ready powerhouse offered in Silverado HD trucks – and it’s ready to go to work for you in a late-model truck or project vehicle that needs a fresh engine or a dual-purpose vintage truck built for work and fun.
Thanks to the advantage of its high-flow cylinder heads and other technologies, the L96 offers more than 50-percent more horsepower than the 454 Big-Block offered in Chevy trucks from the 1970s through the early 1990s. It delivers more torque, too, than most production 454 engines, while cranking it out it in a lighter, more compact package.
Chevrolet Performance’s inclusive crate engine kit includes the engine assembly with a production high torque intake manifold, throttle body assembly, ignition coils, water pump, balancer and more. You’ll need to add a frontend accessory drive system and an engine controller, but we’ve got that covered, too.
