Chevrolet Performance, a pioneer in Connect and Cruise Powertrain Systems, has expanded its 2017 lineup to include Gen I Small-Block, Big-Block and carbureted LS engines. These comprehensive packages include engines, transmissions, electronic controllers and all necessary wiring harnesses.
The 350/290 Deluxe Connect and Cruise Powertrain Package combines Chevy’s most popular crate engine with its most affordable automatic transmission. Here are the key components:
• 350/290 Deluxe Crate Engine (P/N 19244450)
• Hydra-Matic 4L65-E 4-Speed Automatic Transmission (P/N 19260380)
• Transmission Installation Kit (P/N 19332781)
• SuperMatic Torque Converter (P/N 1929980)
• SuperMatic Transmission Control System (P/N 19332775)
The 350/290 Deluxe Crate Motor is rated at 300 hp at 5,100 rpm and 335 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,200 rpm. It sports an aluminum intake manifold and chrome dress-up parts that include valve covers (with push-in breathers and T-bar style hold-downs), timing cover, and air cleaner. This powerful, durable engine is a great alternative to rebuilding with your old two-bolt block.
The heavy-duty Hydra-Matic 4L65-E 4-Speed Automatic Transmission is versatile and efficient, with a maximum torque rating of 430 lb.-ft. It’s the perfect choice for a project needing the benefits of an electronically controlled overdrive transmission with high performance capability.
The SuperMatic Transmission Control System is the most user-friendly, fully integrated system on the market. It is specially calibrated for retrofit installations in older vehicles. This system takes the guesswork out of matching and Engine and Transmission combination.
The factory-engineered 350/290 Deluxe Connect and Cruise Powertrain System provides optimal performance and durability while saving you time and guesswork. You can rely on a quicker and easier installation, without third party tuning. As with all Chevy Performance Connect and Cruise packages, the 350/290 Deluxe is made up of brand-new parts and carries a 24-month / 50,000 mile limited warranty.
