When it comes to factory-engineered performance and convenience, nothing beats the industry-exclusive Connect & Cruise from Chevrolet Performance! Choose from a variety of systems featuring Small-Block, Big-Block and LS / LT engine choices with automatic and manual overdrive transmissions. With one package you get the engine, transmission, electronic controllers (where applicable) and all the necessary wiring harnesses.

All components are matched for optimal performance and durability. The specially calibrated controllers are designed for retrofitting the components into older vehicles. This allows plug-and-play installation and operation without the need for third-party tuning. (Carburetted engines and manual transmissions do not utilize electronic controllers.)

For a limited time get up to a $750 MAIL-IN REBATE from GM on Connect & Cruise!

Simply purchase a complete Connect & Cruise system from Karl Performance Parts and send in the form with proof of purchase to receive the rebate. All components must be purchased at one time, on one invoice to qualify. Rebate is issued in the form of a Visa prepaid card mailed directly to you from GM. Click here for the rebate form.

The Connect & Cruise lineup even includes emissions-compliant E-ROD LS3 and E-ROD LSA systems with automatic or manual transmissions!


The Complete Performance Package!

Our engineers did all the hard work of designing and calibrating perfectly matched powertrain systems and covered them with a 24-month/50,000-mile limited warranty (36-month/50,000-mile limited warranty on E-ROD systems) Click here for more warranty information (354 KB .pdf file)

Chevrolet Performance pioneered the performance crate engine, so when it comes to performance innovations that save time, money and guesswork, we once again lead the way! All you have to do is install, connect, and start cruising!

All engines require a front-end accessory drive system. The instructions included with each kit lists recommendations and Chevrolet Performance offers several configurations to suit different applications. Each allows the installer to easily delete the air conditioning compressor if not desired.

For LS-style engines, Chevrolet Performance recommends the LS1 Engine Installation Guide P/N 88959384, which illustrates basic procedures and offers helpful tips on installing an LS-style engine into older vehicles.

LS / LT Engine Connect & Cruise Builders Guide

Each Chevrolet Performance Connect & Cruise crate powertrain system includes:

  • Brand-new, fully assembled crate engine
  • Brand-new automatic or manual transmission
  • SuperMatic transmission control module and harness
  • Calibrated engine control module
  • Two oxygen sensors and mounting bosses (for installation in the exhaust system)
  • Mass airflow meter and mounting boss (for installation in the air intake system)
  • Throttle pedal assembly (for use with the electronically operated throttle)
  • Assembled wiring harness w/ fuse box and necessary cam and MAP sensor jumpers
  • Oil pressure sensor that is compatible with the harness
  • Instruction sheet

To facilitate a complete installation, the builder will need to source additional components to complete the engine assembly and get the vehicle running, including:

  • Fuel tank and fuel lines (re-circulating or returnless)
  • Fuel pump – 58 psi (400 kPa) for all engines except LSA, which requires 65 psi (450 kPa)
  • Air induction system that incorporates the mass airflow sensor

NOTE: All components; engine, transmission, torque converter and controllers are ordered and delivered individually.
