Featuring Kenne Bell’s Mammoth 3.6L supercharger, Lingenfelter Performance now offer a more serious crate that’s perfect for your radical hot rod, old or new. The previous crate was only rated to 750 horsepower, however with the popularity of these high-powered cars on the street and strip, they are now offering this beefed-up version that tops out at 900 horsepower.
For nearly 40 years, Lingenfelter Performance Engineering has been known for delivering industry-leading horsepower for high-end, street-driven cars, customizing 1,000-, 1,200- and 1,500-horsepower engines to customers’ exact specifications. Now, Lingenfelter is expanding its standard crate engine line with a powerful 900 horsepower engine that will be an off-the-shelf, stocked product.
“Our 900 horsepower crate engine will fit in any vehicle, from street rods to ZR1 Corvettes and everything in between,” said Mike Copeland, vice president and general manager at Lingenfelter Performance Engineering. “Owners of luxury performance cars are always looking for more power and now we offer this in our expanded crate engine line.”
Prior to the release of the new engine, Lingenfelter’s supercharged crate engine line topped out at 750 horsepower. “We have never before offered a crate engine combination with this much horsepower,” said Copeland. “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,” Copeland said.
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 also be available on www.lingenfelter.com.
Lingenfelter Performance Engineering offers crate engines ranging from 500 horsepower to 900 horsepower.
