Oh Sweet Baby Jebus….. I love SEMA Part 3

04 Nov

This years SEMA show also showcased technology by both GM and Ford.

1955-Chevrolet-LS3-V8

GM introduced its new line of comparatively greener and more fuel efficient crate motors called ‘E-Rod’ through the use of an eye-catching 1955 Chevrolet. The fully restored Chevy features a 6.2-liter LS3 V8 E-Rod engine that cranks out 424 lb.-ft. of torque. The list price for the E-Rod LS3 package, which does not include a transmission nor some other necessary components such as the exhaust system behind the catalytic converters, is $9,375.

Ford in the other hand wedged out the old tradition of putting modern engines into old cars. Detroit Street Rods built a ’34 3-window coupe with the newly developed 3.5L EcoBoost V6 underneath the hood, making it the first rear-drive application for the twin-turbocharged engine. Packing 400 horsepower and 400 lb-ft torque, this little coupe has the potential to surprise quite a few people at stoplights.
