LAS VEGAS ― The all-new 2017 Chevrolet Performance catalog is the official resource for enthusiasts seeking to take their Chevy to higher levels of performance and style, with parts designed, engineered and tested by Chevrolet.

Released today at the SEMA Show, the latest catalog features an expanded lineup of performance parts and accessories for the newest Chevrolet cars, trucks and SUVs, as well as new crate engines, transmission kits, controllers and other performance parts.

“For nearly 50 years, Chevrolet Performance has fueled the passion of enthusiasts and led the industry with crate engines engineered to deliver power, durability and innovative technology,” said Jim Campbell, Chevrolet U.S. vice president of Performance Vehicles and Motorsports. “From the original Small Block and Big Block engines to the LS and new LT engines, we have never stopped innovating, and 2017 brings more choices for enthusiasts building the vehicles of their dreams.”

The greater range of choices is driven by new crate engines and transmissions, including:

  • LT376/535 ― The all-new crate engine is based on the production LT1 engine found in the Corvette Stingray and Camaro SS. Engineers developed a unique high-performance camshaft for it and complemented it with CNC-ported cylinder heads. The result is 535 naturally aspirated horsepower.
  • SP350/357 ― Leveraging the strength of the popular 350 H.O. crate engine and matching it with an all-new hydraulic roller camshaft, with the latest Small Block intake manifold design and high-flow Vortec cylinder heads. Horsepower increased to 357 and torque jumped to 407 lb.-ft.
  • LT1 Connect & Cruise / E-ROD packages ― The 455-hp LT1 6.2L crate engine is available in Connect & Cruise and E-ROD packages. With the Connect & Cruise package, the LT1 (wet sump) is matched with the new 8L90-E eight-speed automatic transmission. The Connect & Cruise E-ROD system takes the concept a step further, adding catalytic converters and other emissions-related equipment to make it CARB-compliant for millions of 1996 and earlier vehicles in California.
  • 8L90-E eight-speed automatic transmission Chevrolet has adapted the 8L90-E for use with LT1 and LT4 crate engines. With four gearsets and five clutches, creative packaging enables it to fit the same space as GM’s family of six-speed automatics.

Chevrolet also offers approximately 50 more Small Block, Big Block and LS-series crate engines, as well as a wide range of manual and automatic transmission choices for builders.
