There’s no dining room centrepiece quite as intimidating as a 6.2L supercharged V8. Need your future son-in-law to know just who the boss really is? Park the LS9 Corvette ZR1 V8 between the roast beef and potatoes. Just don’t let any candle wax drip on the manifold, ok?
638 horsepower and 604 lb-ft of torque could combine to make any current new car fast. Thus, General Motors won’t restrict its fitment to the Corvette ZR1. No, you can purchase the engine seperately from GM Performance Parts late next year.
Designed to feel rather different from a typical old-tech V8 or most supercharged engines, the LS9 is high-revving; producing power down low and in its upper range. GM will sell the V8 crate package fully fitted with ignition, supercharger assembly, and exhaust manifolds. You’ll need your own ECU/wiring harness. Have fun with that.
