These Chevrolet Performance 350 c.i.d. 290 hp engine assemblies are the most popular Chevrolet Performance crate engines because no one else can deliver as much performance for this kind of value. Chevrolet Performance believes that everyone should be able to afford a high quality GM V8 without going broke. These engines are the answer to those car crafters who demand maximum return on their money. But, just because they're affordable, don't think that they're stones. These 350/290 engines deliver approximately 290 hp at 5,100 rpm, and a solid 326 ft.-lbs. of torque at 3,750 rpm. With those kinds of numbers, they're the perfect replacement engines for the millions of GM vehicles that shipped with a small block. Got a tired, old Chevy that needs a lift? Then these crate engines are just right for you. Chevrolet Performance 350 c.i.d. 290 hp engine assemblies start with a 4-bolt main bearing block, aluminum pistons, and a hydraulic camshaft. Then they're topped with cast-iron cylinder heads that are designed to be extremely durable, while still providing good airflow through the engine.

Some problems

Summit RacingSummit Racing Verified Purchase

Valve covers had to come off to put manifold on, problem was the valve covers were torqued down so tight they were bent a little, and they were stuck and wouldn't pull off so I bent them trying to get them off. This doesn't come with a suggested start up guide. Other than that great engine.

Very Happy

Summit RacingSummit Racing Verified Purchase

We recently installed this motor in our 1972 Chevelle. We are extremely pleased. After reading other reviews that listed several issues we had no issues other than this block comes with two dipstick locations (one on the left and one on the right) but no plug for the side you arent using. Our local dealership had difficulty finding/ordering the part so I would suggest ordering the plug when you purchase the motor to save the hassle. Overall, it was a great fit for our Chevelle and puts her back to the block she had in her originally. Plenty of pep and we are very happy with it ...read more

Chevy Perfomance 350 crate engine

Good value for the money spent. No instructions shipped with engine. Valve covers were glued and torqued down so tight had to damage them to remove them before installing intake manifold, I was replacing the valve covers anyway. everything else was great, I have been running this for 9 months so far everything is good. Could not figure out how to plug hole for dipstick that was not used on Drivers side part number for plug in instructions is invalid, not sure how to order. Overall happy this value for dollar ...read more
