PRI 2013: Scoggin-Dickey Parts Center Leads the Way in GM Engines



If you want a little extra breathing room for your Stingray, SDPC offers PRC CNC machined LT1 heads.

Scoggin-Dickey Parts Center has long been the go-to source for everything related to Chevy performance. Now, they’re expanding their late model EFI offerings even farther with their own enhancements to The General’s line of speed parts, as well as the latest generation of the indomitable small block Chevy V8, the new Gen V LT1.

Available in both dry (PN 12657248) and wet sump (PN 12657236) versions, the C7 Corvette’s powerplant will soon be shipping in crate engine form, though with a sticker price of $10,700, it may not be in everyone’s budget right off the bat. Fortunately, there’s a huge range of affordable, powerful Gen IV LS crate engines that could be on a truck to you tomorrow from SDPC, should you so desire.

Then again, if you’re more of a do-it-yourselfer, there are plenty of good building blocks to be found in the SDPC catalog from both Chevy and selected (and respected) aftermarket partners like Edelbrock, Trick Flow, and Dart, as well as all the hardware necessary to put the whole thing together.


If you’re looking to build a big-cube LS from a GM factory block, SDPC’s custom LSA block would be an excellent starting point. It offers big-bore cylinder sleeves and bushed lifter bores for the ultimate in accuracy, allowing 427-plus cubic inches and a maximum 4.160 bore from this block with ease.

Don’t forget that SDPC also offers a wide range of budget-friendly factory-based short blocks as well, ready to take whatever you want to throw at them thanks to forged internals and quality aftermarket components. But most of all, remember that the expertise born from long experience as a leader in late model GM performance is included in everything Scoggin-Dickey Parts Center does…
