Gen III LS1 5.7L V8

GenIII V8 Pic

The Chevrolet sourced LS1 Generation III 5.7L V8 replaces the Holden 5.0L V8 in the VT Series II. It offers significant increases in power and torque, more all-round refinement, improved fuel economy and even greater durability and reliability.

The Gen III features reduced weight due to mostly aluminium construction, reduced friction due to roller camshaft followers and rocker arms, and single plane engine sealing which provides superior sealing of oil, water and air. The new coil per cylinder ignition system features eight individual coils with each coil located next to its spark plug for a concentrated blast of high ignition energy sparked by electronic signals derived from crankshaft and camshaft position sensors.

Cylinders: V8
Capacity: 5665 cc
Bore x Stroke (mm): 99.00 x 92.00
Induction: Sequential fuel injection.
Valvetrain: Overhead valves, pushrods, 2 valves / cylinder.
Compression ratio: 10.1 : 1
Maximum power: 220 kW @ 5000 RPM
Maximum torque: 446 Nm @ 4400 RPM
Redline / Cutout: / 6,200 rpm
