350/290 Base Crate Engine

19355658 Chevrolet Motor


A Lot of Bang for the Buck from Chevrolet!

This Chevrolet Performance Small-Block is affordable, but it's no slouch. The 350/290 features four-bolt mains and provides a great alternative to rebuilding your tired engine. GM filled it with a nodular iron crankshaft, hydraulic flat tappet camshaft and durable cast-aluminum pistons. Those pistons along with the durable cast iron heads' 76cc chambers provide a pump-gas friendly 8.0:1 compression ratio making this SBC 350 is a great engine for your project.

350/290 Base Crate Engine

P/N 19355658

The 350/290 is the most popular Chevrolet Performance crate engine because no one can deliver this performance for this kind of value. The folks at Chevy believe that everyone should be able to afford a high quality, high performance Geniune GM V-8 without going broke. The 350/290 Base engine is an answer to those car crafters who demand maximum return on their money. Rated at 308 hp @ 5,100 rpm and a solid 347 lb.-ft. of torque at 3,900 rpm, this 350 is no slouch.

Chevrolet Performance loaded the 350/290 Base engine with a four-bolt main bearing block, aluminum pistons, and a hydraulic camshaft. The cast iron cylinder heads are designed to be extremely durable while still providing good airflow through the engine. A 2-year / 50,000 mile warranty gives you peace of mind to go down the road without worry.

For your convenience we also offer this engine with three levels of completion to save you time and money!

Note: Designed for pre-1976 street vehicles or any off-road vehicle. NOT intended for marine applications.

To show the potential of this engine, we took an off-the-shelf 350/290 Base and finished it up with Edelbrock intake, Holley carb., Chevrolet Performance HEI distributor, MSD wires -- everything from our K3 kit and took it to the dyno.

After a few pulls for break-in and some tuning of the carb. and timing adjustments, we were pleased to see 333 horsepower and 371 lb.-ft. of torque! With numbers like that, it's easy to see why this inexpensive Chevy crate engine is the perfect replacement, or upgrade, for just about any SBC powered ride.

Got a tired old light-duty pickup or a project car that needs a wake-up call? Ask us how we can provide you with the same results as our build! (All of the components utilized in our build are available from Karl Performance Parts.)
