If you’re rebuilding a late 1980s to early 2000s truck, SUV, or van, you’re in luck because General Motors makes 350 service engines available for purchase. This is different from some 350 cubic inch V8s that you can buy through genuine GM parts, which are refurbished and reused.
For this application, the GM 350 service engine V8s are brand new and have no remanufactured components. This ensures better reliability and longevity, and they also come with a three-year / 100,000-mile limited warranty.
Applications of the 5.7-liter V8 include Generation 1 (covering trucks, vans and SUVs from 1987 to 1995), Generation 1e LD (covering light trucks from 1996 to 2002) and Generation 1e HD (covering heavy trucks from 1996-2002).
The new GM 350 service engines feature all new four-bolt main blocks, roller camshaft ready and mechanical fuel pump compatible. They also come with new cylinder head and block castings and race-proven forged steel crankshafts for durability, along with new valve covers, oil pan, timing cover and dipstick tube from both. sides. The replacement engine assembly comes with precise CNC machining of cylinder heads, cast blocks and other components.
“Building on the history and versatility of the original 350 first available in Chevrolet models such as the Camaro and Corvette, this engine continues to deliver,” said Andrew McKittrick, Portfolio Manager propulsion system from GM.
“Every GM Genuine Parts engine incorporates our latest engineering technology and product enhancements to deliver a reliable and reliable product to our customers.
GM 350 V8 service engines are now available at certified GM dealers or at Genuinegmparts.com. Pricing is not available at the time of writing, but GM Authority noted that GM offered a similar new 350 V8 service engine for $ 2,807.
