In addition to the E-ROD system, the builder will need to source additional components to complete the assembly and get the vehicle running. They include:
– Fuel tank
– Fuel lines (re-circulating or returnless)
– Fuel pump
– Fuel tank vent line from the tank to the evaporative emissions canister
– Purge line from the canister to the engine purge solenoid
– Air induction system that incorporates the mass airflow sensor
– Exhaust system behind the catalytic converters
Each E-ROD engine requires a front-end accessory drive system suitable to the vehicle. The instruction manual includes recommendations for the accessory drive kit, as well as the transmission, gear ratios and more. Chevrolet Performance offers two configurations of the accessory drive systems to suit different applications; and each allows the installer to easily delete air conditioning. They include part numbers 19155066 and 19155067.
Chevrolet Performance recommends the LS1 Engine Installation Guide P/N 88959384, which illustrates basic procedures and offers helpful tips on installing an LS engine into older vehicles.
E-ROD systems do not come with a transmission. Chevrolet Performance recommends the SuperMatic 4L70-E – P/N 19244043 – four-speed automatic overdrive transmission, along with
Chevrolet Performance’s SuperMatic transmission controller P/N 19257634, for LC9 and LS3 systems. The LSA, with higher torque output, should use the SuperMatic 4L85-E, P/N 19300175, along with the SuperMatic transmission controller, P/N 19302410.

Emissions-Legal Horsepower from GM
Introduced on the seventh-generation Chevy Corvette Stingray and Gen 6 Camaro SS, the LT1 6.2L V-8 opened the next chapter in the long, historic legacy of the Small-Block engine. It is architecturally similar to the LS family of Small Block engines, but with a unique block casting, cylinder head design, oiling system and more. It also combines advanced technologies including direct injection and continuously variable valve timing to support an advanced combustion system. The new E-ROD LT1 crate engine from Chevrolet Performance is offered with a wet-sump or dry-sump oiling system ? and a controller specially designed for retro-fit applications is included. This is the first LT-based E-Rod system and the most technically advanced. It is also available in a Connect & Cruise package with a matched 4L75-E automatic transmission.
