Chevy Performance raised the bar, yet again, on power and performance with its latest release of the ZZ632/1000® crate engine, the most powerful crate engine to date. The naturally aspirated V8, which is the largest engine ever from the brand coming in at 632 cubic inches, boasts unheard ratings of 1,004 horsepower and 876 lb-ft of torque.
“This is the biggest, baddest crate engine we’ve ever built,” said Russ O’Blenes, GM director of the Performance and Racing Propulsion Team. “The ZZ632 sits at the top of our unparalleled crate engine lineup as the king of performance. It delivers incredible power, and it does it on pump gas.”
Peak power of the Big Block V8 clocks in at 6,600 rpm. But, you can push the V8 engine to a whopping maximum rating of 7,000 rpm. Not only does the new and most powerful crate engine deliver history-making ratings, but it also offers new architecture to optimize its legendary performance. Instead of ports made of varying shapes and sizes for the aluminum cylinder heads, the new V8 crate engine utilizes ports of the same size. The exhaust ports don’t vary in size, either. Why the change? The identical measurements of the ports help funnel the same amount of power, according to Chevy.
