GM’s small block V-8 changed history with the introduction of the 265 Turbo-Fire in 1955. It has been the dominant domestic engine in terms of sheer numbers and in terms of longevity. Enthusiasts have embraced it and an entire performance aftermarket sprang up around it. From its humble 162 HP beginning to today’s LT5 supercharged 755 HP engine used in Corvette ZR1. GM’s small block V-8 remains America’s most iconic engine.
