THE LAST OF A LEGEND!
When the C6 Corvette ZR1 went out of production, so did its unique LS9 supercharged engine. Chevrolet Performance
acquired a finite number of them for use as crate engines and when they’re gone, they’re gone! Rated at 638 hp
and 604 lb.-ft. of torque, the LS9 is a beast!
The engine is a technological marvel. High-rpm-validated lightweight reciprocating parts, including titanium intake
valves, are used, along with high-flow cylinder heads that draw the charge forced on them by a sixth-generation
supercharger. It has a high-helix (twist) design that helps the “blower” deliver greater power at the low end and
sustains it longer through the rpm band for broad, on-demand power whether off-idle or at speed.
Our crate engine assembly includes the dry sump oil pan and provisions for the charge cooler’s liquid cooling
system. You’ll need an external oil tank (not available from Chevrolet Performance), external coolant tank (for the
charge cooler) and our LS9 Controller Kit, P/N 19354338, to get it running in your project vehicle. It also includes a
9-bolt crankshaft flange that may require an adapter for use with some transmissions.
