Corvette LS1 Info
The 1997-2004 Corvette LS1 aluminum engine (Gen IV small block) features individual coil packs instead of a distributor cap and rotor, aluminum block and pistons, a very deep skirt design for increased durability, and many other technical and manufacturing innovations. The LS1/LS6 are the progenitor for the entire C6 & C7 engine lineup, with the LS2, LS3, LS7, LS9, being primarily increased displacement and supercharged versions of the LS1/LS6. Even the LT engines are still primarily increased displacement LS1’s/LS6’s but with modern, improved technologies of direct injection and cylinder deactivation for improved fuel economy for their larger displacement “thirstiness”. This third-generation small block V8’s complete redesign also featured a new cylinder firing order to improve idle and rev smoothness. The 1997 Corvette LS1 was rated at 345 hp (257 kW) at 5,600 rpm and 350 lbf⋅ft (470 N⋅m) at 4,400 rpm. After improvements to the intake and exhaust manifolds in 2001 the rating improved to 350 hp (260 kW) and 365 lbf⋅ft (495 N⋅m). The new engine, combined with the new body and its low 0.29 drag coefficient, was able to achieve up to 28 mpg on the highway
