In a world full of LS engines, one company still builds a mean LT1.
Golen Engine Service in Hudson, NH builds lots of high-powered LS crate motors, but how many engine shops do you know that have preserved and honed the art of building a Gen II LT1? These engines came in everything from Corvettes and Camaros, to Impalas and Cadillacs—they were the mainstay performance V-8 for GM cars from 1992 to 1997. If you like your torque old school and in massive quantities, there’s nothing like a built LT1/4, and Golen Engine Service has them in crate motor form in every flavor from 400hp to 700hp. Golen uses only the best parts, like Eagle cranks, Scat rods, Mahle pistons, COMP valvetrain, and AFR cylinder heads. This 396ci partial long-block ($7,999) is a perfect example. With your intake and engine dress, it puts out 550 hp at 6,500 rpm and 500 lb-ft at 4,000 rpm. It even comes with a three-year warranty when used in a street car.
