Pro-Builder® GM 2.8-to-3.1 Stroker Engine
E-mail SALES@ENGINE-PARTS.COM with questions or for ordering info

Applicable Vehicles:
  • Any GM Vehicle mid-1985 or Newer that originally came with a 2.8L Engine.
  • Includes Pontiac Fieros, Chevy or GMC S10, S15 Pickup Trucks, RWD or 4WD Blazer & Jimmy, Chevy or GM Passenger Vehicles, Jeeps that have GM's 2.8L engine.

Performance Benefits:

  • Improves torque and horsepower.
  • Requires no modification to engine bay or motor mounts because you use the 2.8L block.
  • You can use your stock 2.8 heads, fuel delivery system, etc. and Everything Works Great!
  • Cost is not much more than rebuilding a stock 2.8, so Why Not?
  • Various Performance Camshafts and other Accessories are available to give you even More Torque and Horsepower.  E-mail SALES@ENGINE-PARTS.COM for more information!

Answers to Common Questions:

  • What is the increase in horsepower and torque?  It is a noticeable increase in power over the stock 2.8L engine.  We have not dyno-tested one of these engines on the dynometer, but with the right camshaft and fuel delivery system, we have had customers get 165+ HP out of this engine (which, like mentioned above, is noticeable over the 140 HP of a stock 2.8L engine). 
  • What are my cam options?  Pro-Builder® Stock, Phase 1, Phase 2, & Phase 3 cam kits are available with this engine.
  • Can this Engine be used with N.O.S. to power my Drag Car?  This is up to you, but it ruins the warranty:)
  • Are other Performance Parts Available?  Yes, Including Cam Kits, Heads, Gaskets, Rocker Arms, etc.  We have quite a bit for these engines.  Visit our pricing page to get prices and ordering info.
  • What does this kit do to fuel mileage and driveability?  Our customers tell us that the engines run great, are reliable, and that their fuel mileage is very close, if any different at all, to their engine before installing this engine kit.
