Have you ever been discouraged from swapping a newer, more powerful engine into your truck because of the hoops you have to jump through to get it smogged? Good news, GM Performance Parts cut through the red tape for you.
Perhaps one the coolest products that we didn’t have room for in our SEMA coverage is GM’s E-ROD crate engine package. The revolutionary engine and emissions package debuted at the show and was built to pass the stringent smog tests required by the California Ari Resources Board (CARB). The first application is the 6.2L LS3, rated at 430hp and 424lb-ft of torque, but the supercharged 6.2L LSA and 7.0L LS7 versions are in the works, as well as a 5.3L. The engine package retails for $9,375 and will come with an engine wiring harness, engine control module, catalytic converters, evaporation canister, and most importantly, CARB approval. This means that any car, truck, or SUV 1995 model year or earlier, can be equipped with a modern, clean, powerful engine and still be registered in California without hassle.
