First featured in 1962, the 327 was found in everything from fuel-injected Corvettes to the very first Camaros. It was renowned for its high-rpm performance and surprising torque from a comparatively small-displacement V-8.
Today's LS327/327 crate engine delivers on the same virtues, cranking out 327 horsepower and 347 lb-ft of torque. It's a 5.3L LS power plant with the same 327-cubic inch displacement of the high-winding small blocks from the 1960s, but it is "breathed on" and updated by GMPP engineers with a hotter cam, Grafal-coated high-silicon pistons and more.
