As the car roars and the engine's RPMs past 6000, the sheer friction of force mounting under the hood can cause some engines to damage from such high performance. That is where the Chevy 396 engine outmatches many big blocks from its era and beyond. You can find these options in 1965 Corvettes as well as in Z16 Chevelles. With a 4.095-inch bore and a 3.760-inch stroke, the 1965 Chevy 396 engine has remarkable specs, hitting 375 horsepower with 560 pounds per foot of torque. But this engine is not all about raw power. It is markedly durable, fitted with four-bolt-main bearing caps to keep the engine comfortable and thriving even past 6000 RPM. Find yours in the vast inventory on eBay – filled with refurbished models, you can find some fitted with enhanced upgrades as well. You can also find used Chevy 396 engines in case you want a more affordable option for your car project. To ensure you find your ideal engine, try searching for retrieved units from old Camaros, Novas, Chevelles, and Corvettes, as well as some Bel-Air, Impala, Biscayne, and Caprice models – notably from 1965 to 1972.
