Creature Feature GM creates 8.0L industrial crate engine

| December 9, 2016

Scientists say the burly, powerful group of cave dwellers known as the Neanderthals died out over 30,000 years ago.

That’s too bad since GM just produced a big block, big displacement 8.0L Industrial Crate Engine that these muscular wild men, along with anyone needing serious workplace torque, could truly appreciate.

The 8.0L (Part # 19303371) features a tall deck (10.2 in.) block design based on legendary Mark V/VI architecture. Need an ultra-durable, beefy V-8 replacement engine for any job on a work site? Look no further.

The 8.0L was engineered for toughness with a host of double-strong components, including:

  • Forged steel crankshaft and timing rods
  • Double roller timing chain
  • Thicker main bearing webs with four bolt main caps
  • Long life anodized pistons featuring full floating wrist pins with Compressed Natural Gas(CNG)\Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) capabilities, and
  • Full length water jackets (non-siamesed cylinders) to provide much-needed superior cooling.

Endless Possibilities

Since the 8.0L has so many replacement possibilities, the installer determines and adds the induction system. No worries here because the 8.0L was designed to meet 2010 (and beyond)
emissions and OBDII requirements. It arrives with the following in place: 58x and 4x crankshaft positioning sensor, and flat response knock sensor capabilities. Also included are a coil-near-plug
configuration and long-life spark plugs.

The assembly itself co
mes stocked with a complete and fully adjustable valve train, fastburn cylinder heads, front cover, harmonic balancer, 8-quart oil pan, valve covers and intake manifold.

Get the 8.0L rea
dy for work and it tests out at 148.9 HP and 434 lb. ft. of torque at 1800 RPMs, with a 111 KW rating. Throw in a little imagination, and you’d be hard-pressed to run out of uses for this industrial dynamo.

With so many purposes and a rock-solid build, the 8.0L is set to be around for a long while. For this cunning brute, extinction isn’t an option.
