Fits On/Installation Notes:

The classic L88 427 updated for the 21st century!

Between 1967 and 1969, the legendary L88 was the ultimate expression
of Chevy�s Big-Block power, combining a rigid iron cylinder block with
lightweight aluminum cylinder heads and a single four-barrel carburetor.
That raspy rat engine was rated at 480 horsepower, although the figure
was generally thought to be on the conservative side.

GM Performance Parts has recreated that classic Big-Block combination
in the ZZ427/480 � including the 480 horsepower rating (and it just might
be a little on the conservative side, too). Like the original, it features a
forged steel crankshaft and high-flow, oval-port aluminum cylinder heads.
We�ve upgraded the camshaft from the original�s mechanical flat-tappet
design to a smoother hydraulic roller, which delivers great drivability
characteristics and a broader rev range. A 10.1:1 compression ratio
means it will perform great on pump gas, too.

Whether you�re building a �69 COPO Camaro resto-mod tribute, a
modified mid-year Corvette or a street-tire class winner, the ZZ427/480 is
the heritage-inspired crate engine that delivers the performance that built
the Big-Block�s legendary reputation.
