Run up front with our race-winning 400-horsepower 350 with Fast Burn heads!
 
GM Performance Part's Fast Burn cylinder heads are the fast way to the winner's circle –and they're standard on the 350/400 Late Model GM racing engine from GM Performance Parts.
 
This brand-new, factory-sealed racing engine is based on the popular Fast Burn 385-horsepower street crate engine, but includes a racing-only 8-quart circle track oil pan, with dual kick-out design, along with a valve cover breather kit and special "kool nut" rocker arm design. The assembly also includes an open-plenum high-rise intake manifold and 1.5:1-ratio aluminum roller rockers.
 
Because it's based on the 350 Fast Burn engine, the 350/400 racing engine includes a bulletproof bottom end, anchored by a forged steel crankshaft and hypereutectic pistons. The 23-degree, Fast Burn aluminum heads enable tremendous power in the small-block V-8 because of a unique chamber design that quickly and completely burns all of the air/fuel mixture –giving you maximum power all the time.
 
With the 350/400 racing engine under the hood of your Late Model, you'll put a "fast burn" on the competition.

    SKU-91599282
    x
                This Northstar engine was designed originally  for transverse front-wheel drive applications. It was modified  substantially in 2004 for longitudinal rear- and all-wheel drive use in  the STS, SRX, and XLR, as well as receiving continuously variable valve  timing on both intake and exhaust sides. The RWD (LH2) Northstar  produces 320 hp (239 kW) and 315 lb•ft (427 N•m). An increased  compression ratio of 10.5:1 enables most of the increase in power from  the L37 and LD8 Northstars.
