Why The 5.3L LM7 Is A Great Choice For Project RedTide



In case you haven’t heard, Project RedTide is getting an engine swap! LT is taking out the tired 350 and swapping in a 5.3L LM7 from PowerTrain Products. And it’s actually a high-performance crate engine, not stock!

It comes in with a dyno-proven horsepower of 400 and 392 lb.-ft. of torque at the flywheel. It has upgraded valve springs, a heavy-duty timing set and an upgraded oil pump. Any factory issues these engines had from GM have already been corrected. The best part is, the whole longblock only costs $3,500 and comes with a 2-year warranty making it the perfect choice for an engine swap!
