    Chevy Adds LT1 and COPO 350 Crate Motors, More to Performance-Parts Catalog
    [​IMG]

    Chevrolet has a rich tradition of offering customization accessories and go-fast parts—and the brand’s Performance Catalog is testament to it. Now the bible of bow-tie speed has been thoroughly updated with some tasty offerings for 2015, all of which were announced at the 2014 SEMA show.

    Highlights include a 460-hp, 6.2-liter LT1 crate engine that’s based on the one in the Corvette Stingray; it costs $11,000 ($11,250 with dry-sump lubrication) and includes all of the latest high-tech goodies, such as cylinder deactivation, direct injection, and variable valve timing. Chevy is also offering kits to mate the engine to the brand’s 4L60 four-speed auto or T-56 six-speed manual.

    A supercharged 350-cubic-inch COPO engine is perfect for drag racing—it’s the same one installed in the 2015 COPO Camaro—while the LS3-based 525-hp, 6.2-liter DR525 engine offers performance for those on a tighter budget at $9750. For nine grand you can order a 272-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter LTG four-cylinder for rear-wheel-drive cars.

    Camaro owners get a huge palette of parts and options from the Z/28 and beyond, as we reported earlier this year. But the catalog also includes many choices for the Corvette, SS sedan, Sonic, Silverado, and Colorado, including body kits, wheels, brake upgrades, suspension and chassis bits, and exhaust systems. And then there’s all the stuff for classic cars.

    As you’d expect, the performance catalog has become a major source of profits for the brand. “We continue to expand our offerings with parts designed, engineered, and tested by Chevrolet for customers to enhance the performance of their project vehicle,” promises Jim Campbell, VP for performance vehicles and motorsports.

    What’s missing? We didn’t find a section on the Volt. But maybe someone can fit a small-block into it anyway.
