Katech Performance crate engine packages promise enhanced horsepower, torque and durability, with many unique configurations available to meet individual needs and budgets – including four exciting "Attack" packages in the company’s "LS7 Arsenal" for outputs from 575 to well beyond 600 horsepower.

Cylinder cases, cylinder heads and engine internal components – including crankshafts, pistons, camshafts, intake valves, valve springs, retainers, throttle bodies and adjustable belt tensioners – also are part of the Katech Performance lineup that includes valve covers, coil relocation brackets and fuel rail spacers.

"The engineering, manufacturing, assembly and testing personnel that contribute to Katech’s race-winning heritage are the same that design and build our aftermarket engines and parts."

"And we’re the best source for airflow and engine development as well as technical support services including boring, honing, fabrication, welding, dyno tuning and prototype parts."
