OUR BEST CRATE ENGINE VALUE DELIVERS ALL YOU EXPECT IN A POWERFUL SMALL-BLOCK!
The value-priced Chevrolet Performance Small-Block crate engine is also our best seller—and it’s easy to
understand why. The 350/290 Base Small-BIock features four-bolt mains for strength and makes a great economical
alternative to rebuilding a tired, two-bolt main core. Use it to re-power your budget Camaro project!
Inside the 350/290 Base are quality parts, including a hydraulic-flat-tappet camshaft and durable aluminum
pistons that produce an 8.0:1 compression ratio. We offer the 350/290 in a base form, allowing you to add the
induction and other accessories. That’s great for builders swapping over the intake manifold, carburetor and other
components when re-powering a vehicle.
Chevrolet Performance has all the components to build up the 350/290 Base into a great-looking, high-performance
from an aluminum intake and carburetor (we recommend the 670-cfm Holley four-barrel (P/N 19170092)
to the distributor, water pump and more. Save the time and hassle of rebuilding your old engine by ordering the 350/290
Base and finishing it to your own specifications.
