I think they still use a 350 in the Corvette, I'm not 100% on that though. I think they went to the 5.3 in about 1999. And, as my brother-in-law said then, the 5.3 had more HP than the 5.7. Less cubes for more power? Who say's there's no replacement for displacement? J/K I'd still take a 350 any day....

In a while, Chet.

I always thought the only replacement for cubic inches was rectangular dollars.

The 2006 Corvette is available with the 6 liter LS2 (366 cu. in.) or the 7 liter LS7 (427 cu. in.).

The traditional 350(5.7) that you are thinking of was laid to rest in 1998,
although it lingered on in the silverado and sierra classics(the old body style),
suburbans and 1-ton commercial trucks for a couple years.The gen III started
being sold as its replacement in 99. Remember that the gen III small block is
also available in the Corvette and new Pontiac GTO as a 350(5.7). But it is
most popular as the truck engine in 4.8, 5.3 and 6.0 sizes. If you liked the old
ones, you'll love the new ones. Its still just an engine. More powerful and more efficient on cheaper gas. After market parts are becoming extremely
easy to find too. Im not a big fan of large front wheel drive cars but, the 5.3 V8 is impressive in the new Impala.

I did a little more checking. The 6 liter is actually a little less than 6 liter. 364 cu. in. by way of a 4" bore and a 3.62 stroke. 5.96 liter.

As far as I can tell, the 350 (5.7 liter) is no more. GM is using the Gen IV engines, the LS2 & LS7. 364 and 427 respectively.

The LS7 is a small block with a 4.125 bore and a 4 stroke.

I've got a '05 Chevy 3/4 ton 4X4 2500HD LS with a 6.0 liter in it and I'm impressed with it. Nice power and torque. Haven't needed the 4X4 part yet but I think it will be the same. Even with the 4X the mileage isn't that bad with it, 14 mpg in and around town. Highway is only around 16 to 16.5 mpg, that could be better.

Personally I`m not a fan of the new engines, they look like they were run through a trash compactor first.

The new 5.7L is 346ci, not 350. But I'll forgive ya.

1997 in the Corvette, 1998 in the fbodies, and 99? in pickups/vans.

the largest of this family is the 496ci, available in the heavy duty pickups. It'd do a good job in a Chevelle with a cam better suited for the use.

Yea they look stupid, ugly coil packs on the valve cover and a cheesy plastic cover (well, Dodge Hemi has the same now) to cover the vaccum hoses and other garbage.

But they work, and do they work well... my Grandpa has an 01 Silverado Z71 with the 5.3 (325ci, think new 327) and it has some balls.

The 496 is a big block, it is not part of the Gen III engine family.
