The big powerful V8 of a truck not only provides the power you need to propel such a large vehicle and haul large loads, the distinct addition to your driving experience takes performance to the next level. During the early 2000s, the standard small block V8 used in General Motors' truck applications was the Vortec 6000, also known as the LQ4 engine. Deriving from the powerful 6.0-liter V8, different models of the LQ4 engine arrived between 1999 and 2007 for several GM vehicles. In fact, during its production years, the LQ4 appeared in models as diverse as the Chevy Express and Silverado, as well as the Hummer H2 and GMC Yukon. As such, different LQ4s offer anywhere from 300 to 325 horsepower, but all LQ4s are easy to recognize for their cast-iron heads and dished pistons. Today, finding complete LQ4 engines as well as the parts you need to repair and restore your current engine is easy when shopping amid the large inventory of car and truck parts on eBay. The power of a V8 is almost universal. However, the performance it offers has to do with more than its number of cylinders. Choose an engine made for big trucks and impressive vehicles, and take your rig into the fast lane.
