2009 ZR1 Crate Engine, Please contact us for availability and shipping on the
ZR1 crate engine.
The LS9 6.2L supercharged V-8 is the power behind the
most powerful and fastest production car in GM's history - the 2009 Corvette
ZR1. In the third quarter of 2009, it will be available as a complete crate
engine package from GM Performance Parts.
The LS9 crate engine delivers a stunning 638 horsepower (476 kW) and 604
lb.-ft. of torque (819 Nm). It will be the ideal all-in package for enthusiasts
and racers who want the ultimate LS power plant for their project cars, from
resto-modified vintage Corvettes, muscle cars and street rods to late model
F-bodies and "shoebox" Chevys. The supercharger and charge cooler are integrated
in the engine's valley for a lower profile, allowing creative builders to fit
the engine in a variety of applications with plenty of hood clearance.
The engine's 6.2L displacement is shared with the LS3, but the LS9 is built
for high-revving power with a supercharger. It uses stronger cylinder head
castings and steel cylinder liners that are honed with a deck plate installed to
maximize performance and cylinder sealing.
GMPP's LS9 crate engine assembly comes fully dressed, including the ignition
system, supercharger assembly, exhaust manifolds and more. It also includes the
production dry-sump oil pan and provisions for the charge cooler's liquid
cooling system. Builders will need an external oil tank, external coolant tank
(for the charge cooler) and an ECU/wire harness. Pricing has not yet been
