GM 350 290HP Deluxe Engine
Our best crate engine value now comes with a manifold and chrome dress-up kit!
New for 2010, our best-selling crate engine is offered in a new Deluxe package that includes an intake manifold and chrome dress-up kit. The manifold is a high-flow aluminum intake*, along with the gaskets and installation hardware. The chrome dress-up parts add a bright, finishing touch to the 350/290 HP.
It’s easy to understand why this economical crate engine is so popular. It features four-bolt mains for strength and it’s filled with premium parts, including a smooth hydraulic camshaft and durable aluminum pistons that deliver an 8.5:1 compression ratio—making it a great, time-saving alternative to rebuilding a tired, two-bolt-main core engine.
GMPP also has all the parts you need to get your 350/290 HP engine running in your project vehicle, from the starter and distributor to the plug wires and more. And if you want even more power, our high-performance cylinder heads will take this stout small-block to the next level.
