Chevrolet revives the 396 V-8

Chevrolet revives the 396 V-8

LT2 V-8 Cutaway

Chevrolet

GM builds a 6.6-liter gasoline engine for heavy-duty pickups that’s a lot like the 6.2-liter LT1 with which we’re familiar. The difference is that the 6.6 uses an iron block, about an extra quarter-inch of stroke (3.86 inches vs. 3.62 inches), lower compression, and a camshaft meant for low-end power. The result is a 401-hp stump-puller that makes towing a breeze. However, we can’t help but wonder what Chevrolet could do with that kind of displacement in a performance application.

The power curve from the C8 Corvette’s LT2 shows that power is still headed up as the engine hits its fuel cutoff, so unless Chevrolet ditches its variable displacement system to let the engine rev, a cam with more duration won’t add more power at the top end. However, toss that forged 3.86-inch-stroke crank and some new rods into the LT2 and suddenly you’ve got more torque available everywhere.

RPI Designs - No Longer a Preferred Vendor

Jun
05



Due to multiple issues with RPI Designs (aka www.rpidesigns.com), a recent recommended supplier of Corvette parts to our club, I have removed this vendor from our list of preferred suppliers.

On multiple occasions, this vendor has misrepresented shipping dates, in-stock quantity and we have seen issues with the quality of the workmanship of custom painted parts.

However, the biggest issue by far, is a lack of communication by the vendor. Phone calls go unanswered and not returned. Emails go into cyberspace never to be seen again.

Plus the vendor was taking full payment upfront without ever shipping the ordered items.

For those reasons, we had to chop RPI Designs.
