GMPP small-blocks are an affordable alternative to building performance into a rebuild, too, as even the entry-level 350-290HP (part number 12499529) engine delivers 290 horsepower and 332 lb-ft of torque. That’s more than almost every small-block offered in cars or trucks from the early 1970s through the late 1990s, making it a great, value-driven replacement for a 305-powered Monte Carlo or 350-powered truck. For example: On Oct. 5, 2010, the 350-290HP was offered for as low as $1,925 through Doylestown, Pa. dealer Fred Beans on gmperformanceparts.com.
Rebuilding a small-block may be a time-honored tradition, but the stronger, more powerful and affordable crate engines from GM Performance Parts are great options for enthusiasts looking to re-power their project quickly – and without the nagging thoughts of the engine’s history.
