The LS1 crate engine is a small block engine that can compete with the big boys. For four years, the Chevrolet Corvette depended on the LT1 engine, but the increasing level of competition sent GM back to the drawing board to come up with something smaller and more powerful. The result is the LS1 engine, used in Corvettes from 1997 to 2002 and available as an LS1 crate engine for racing aficionados. GM certainly saw the benefits of using this highly overpowered engine with 345 horsepower and 350 torque in its fastest cars, and the LS1 appears in the Camaro and Firebird as well as the Corvette. The LS1 crate engines for sale on eBay are brand new and arrive in large crates, hence the nickname. The benefit of purchasing an LS1 engine complete with all of its parts means that installation is simple with the right tools. Those who work with GM cars in particular can also find spare LS1 engine parts including headers and rods for those working on rebuilding these engines and giving them a new lease on life.
