GM Performance Crate Motor PN: 19244450

GM Performance Parts (GMPP) took the wraps off its latest Chevy 350 crate motor. The new 290 horsepower power plant includes an aluminum intake manifold and an attractive chrome dress-up kit .

The new 350/290 HP Deluxe – part number 19244450 – package includes the high-flow intake manifold, chrome valve covers, chrome air cleaner, chrome timing chain cover, chrome breather cap, along with the necessary hardware, gaskets and installation instructions. GMPP recommends using a Holley 670-cfm carburetor (GMPP number 19170092) to achieve the rated power levels of 290 horsepower at 5,250 rpm and 332 lb.-ft. of torque at 3,750 rpm.

“The 350/290 HP is our most popular and economical performance crate engine and the new Deluxe package enhances it with the finishing touches enthusiasts want,” said Dr. Jamie Meyer, product marketing manager for GM Performance Parts. “We’ve put it all together in a convenient crate engine that saves time and money. And keep in mind, for less than $3,000, you’re getting a brand-new, factory-engineered performance engine – not a rebuilt core.” It is fitted with a smooth hydraulic camshaft and durable aluminum pistons that deliver an 8.5:1 compression ratio for easy pump gas compatibility. “It was engineered as a powerful and cost-effective alternative to rebuilding,” said Dr. Meyer. “It’s a great and durable replacement for a well-worn small-block or the perfect engine for a budget project, saving the hassles of the rebuilding process.”
