About the Drivetrain
GM LS3 376/480 Connect and Cruise Crate Motor. This LS3 delivers a stunning 495 horsepower and 473 lb.-ft. of torque. That’s nearly 70 more HP and 65 lb.-ft torque than the LS3 offered in the base Camaro SS and Corvette. The key to the power boost is the Hot Cam’s 0.525-inch lift on both the intake and exhaust sides, along with 219-degree/228-degree duration specs.
The 4L70e Supermatic Transmission is required to support the additional torque. This 4-Speed Automatic supports up to 495 lbs.-ft and geared as 3.06 1st, 1.62 2nd, 1.00 3rd and 0.70 Overdrive. At 80 mph engine runs at about 2200 RPM. With the 3500-stall converter, the car has the original GM Connect and Cruise tuning. After you drive it for a while, you will want to have it tuned to your specific driving style.
In addition to the car, you will receive the Original Numbers Matching 5.7 Liter 350 CID rebuilt to output 340 HP/310TQ (on a stand) – versus the original 185 HP. All original related accessory brackets, pulleys, etc., all powder coated of course. The original TH350 automatic transmission, starter, power steering gear box, distributor and the 4-barrel Quadrajet Carburetor.
