Corvette Z06 performance straight out of the crate!
The LS1 was a milestone in efficiency, performance, and power. Then, the GM engineers outdid themselves by taking the
LS1 to the next level with a bigger cam, intake, and more compression. We call this amazing
350 cubic inch small block the LS6, and you’ll see the LS6 as standard equipment in the amazing C5 Corvette Z06 and Cadillac CTS-V. Together with the sophisticated engineering from GM, these two cars utilize the LS6 small block to dominate their class.
The 5.7L LS6 builds on the inherent strengths of the LS1 engine, but benefits from a higher-lift camshaft and highercompression pistons to raise horsepower from 350 to 405, and torque from 340 lb.-ft. to 400 lb.- ft. Such tremendous power
is produced through the use of hollow-stem valves, a more aggressive camshaft, an improved intake, and higherrate valve springs.
GM Performance Parts delivers the LS6 as an all-inclusive assembly, complete with CTS-V aluminum oil pan, larger-volume composite intake manifold with single-bore throttle body, and high-performance log-style exhaust manifolds.
The LS6 has helped to take the C5 Z06 Corvette and the Cadillac CTS-V to new levels of performance. Let the same General Motors engineering, testing, and horsepower take you to a higher level of performance.
