Use our classic ZZ427, ZZ454, ZZ502 or even the ZZ572/720R to turn your Chevy into a drag strip winner! No matter the vehicle, the Big-Block’s bottom line is torque.
The legendary L88 was the pinnacle of Chevy’s Big-Block power and the ZZ427/480 crate engine carries modern updates that enhance performance, making it the ultimate expression of Chevy heritage for your classic Corvette.

The foundation is a brandnew, updated cylinder block, which incorporates many strength and performance design enhancements to make it a smart and economical alternative to rebuilding.

Our engineers took the tough 454 HO and matched it with a set of higher-flow, oval-port aluminum cylinder heads to pick up an additional 30 horses and push the torque to a strong 519 lb.-ft. The heads are filled with 2.19/1.88-inch valves that process the airflow through this big-power Big-Block and save weight over iron heads.
