Between 1967 and 1969, the letter-number combination that struck fear from Main Street to the drag strip was L88. The ultimate expression of Chevy's Big-Block power, it combined an iron cylinder block with lightweight aluminum cylinder heads and a single four-barrel carburetor.
GM Performance Parts has brought that classic Big-Block combination back to life in the ZZ427/480, rated at 480 horsepower. Like the original, it features an iron block, forged steel crankshaft and high-flow aluminum cylinder heads. The camshaft has been improved as well, from the original's mechanical flat-tappet design to a more contemporary hydraulic roller, giving this 21st-century L88 modern drivability characteristics and a greater rev range.
The ZZ427/480 comes complete with high-flow oval-port heads, a high lift camshaft (0.510-inch intake/0.540-inch exhaust), an aluminum intake manifold, 870-cfm Holley carburetor, an HEI distributor, aluminum water pump, balancer, spark plug wires and a 14-inch flexplate.
Whether you're building a '69 COPO Camaro tribute, a modified mid-year Corvette or a street-tire class winner, the ZZ427/480 delivers the performance that built the Big-Block's legendary reputation.
