Crate Supercharged Corvette ZR1 Engine For your Project Car!

That’s right! You can now order the C7 Corvette ZR1’s mad-mad supercharged LT5 755-horsepower 6.2-litre V8 for your project car!

Corvette engine swaps (LT1, LS, LS3, and so on) are extremely popular throughout the tuning industry. These engines are known for their power, reliability and the fact that they can essentially be made to fit under the hood of just about any car. The LT5 will require a bit more work, however…

To showcase the LT5’s potential, and mega degree of coolness, GM will show off a custom-built, LT5-powered 1973 Chevrolet Chevelle Laguna at this year’s SEMA show. This car demonstrates the extra work involved in shoehorning the mill in the engine bay as the Chevelle’s hood has be heavily modified and cut out to fit the supercharger.

The question now is how much will it cost? At the moment, GM’s not divulged the info but the comparable LT4 from the Chevy Camaro ZL1 (also a supercharged 6.2-litre V8) goes for just over $13,000, crate included.

We know exactly what car we’d fit this engine in. How about you?
