Joining the LT376 is the SP350 crate engine, which is based on Chevy's popular 350 HO V8. Engineers gave the SP350 a brand new hydraulic roller camshaft, the latest small-block intake design and high-flow Vortec cylinder heads. Horsepower jumped to 357 and torque increased to 407 lb.-ft.

Lastly, Chevy has made the 8L90-E 8-speed automatic transmission compliant with LT1 and LT4 crate engines. Reworked packaging allows the 8-speed to fit the same space as GM's family of six-speed automatics.
