E-ROD System – LC9 5.3L
GM Performance has expanded the emissions-efficient E-ROD lineup for 2011 with the new LC9 5.3L V-8 with cam phasing technology. Cam phasing alters camshaft timing to optimize performance and efficiency.
The 5,3L E-ROD is GMPPs’ most affordable LS crate engine with power and durability!
If you’re looking for an affordable alternative to a used LS engine for
your swap project, check out GM Performance Parts’ new LC9 5.3L
engine. It is based on the workhorse power plant used in hundreds
of thousands of GM trucks, including the Chevrolet Silverado and
Suburban. It’s rated at 315 horsepower and tuned to deliver exceptional
torque at low rpm.
The LC9 5.3L system features a complete GMPP controller system, aluminum engine block, intake manifold, thottle body, and fuel rail. It’s a great choice for hot rod cruisers and off-roader projects, where torque and dependability is the priority over maximum horsepower.
