Chevrolet Performance Connect and Cruise LS 376/480 hp engine and transmission packages are factory-matched engine-and-transmission combinations that save time and guesswork. Their engineers matched the engines and transmissions for optimal performance and durability, so you can wring out every horsepower from them with total confidence. The specially calibrated controllers are designed for easy and quick installation in older vehicles--without the need for third-party tuning.
Connect and Cruise LS 376/480 engines mix the racing-inspired LS "Hot Cam" with the powerful LS3 6.2L to deliver a stunning 495 hp and 473 lbs.-ft. of torque. That's nearly 14 percent more power and torque from a simple camshaft change that will wake up your resto-mod musclecar, street rod, or classic truck. With one package you get the engine, automatic or manual transmission, electronic controllers, and all the necessary wiring harnesses. Put one of these combinations to work in your classic cruiser and enjoy a great balance of performance and efficiency!
