Lingenfelter Now Offers 900 Horsepower Crate Engines
Lingenfelter Performance Engineering has been known to deliver industry-leading horsepower for going on nearly 40 years, specializing in building 1,000-, 1,200- and 1,500-horsepower engines to the exact specifications of its customers desires. Now, Lingenfelter has decided to expand its standard crate-engine product line to include one that kicks out a whopping 900 horsepower. This sweetheart will be an off-the-shelf, stocked product.
Prior to offering this new engine, the company’s supercharged crate engine line topped out at 750 horsepower. “We have never before offered a crate engine combination with this much horsepower,” said Mike Copeland, vice president and general manager. “For this engine, we’ve used a 3.6L Kenne Bell Supercharger, which delivers much more horsepower potential for an engine that’s been engineered to reliably stand up to these power levels.”
The new 900 horsepower Lingenfelter Performance Engineering crate engine is fitted with a forged crankshaft, pistons and rods for maximum performance and durability. It also features GM LS9 heads with Lingenfelter’s proprietary CNC porting program for improved airflow, resulting in more torque and horsepower.
“To get the most out of the massive supercharger and ported cylinder heads, the 900 horsepower crate engine utilizes an all-new GT22 camshaft created specifically for this application.” According to Copeland, “Our new 900 horsepower crate engine will fit any vehicle, from street rods to ZR1 Corvettes and everything in between.”
Lingenfelter Performance Engineering’s new 900 horsepower crate engine comes with its own engine dyno documentation and an LPE brand certificate of authenticity. Pricing and complete engine details will be announced in the near future and will be available on the Lingenfelter website. Lingenfelter Performance Engineering offers crate engines ranging from 500 horsepower to 900 horsepower.
