REMANUFACTURED 8.1L ENGINES AVAILABLE FROM GM PARTS


Grand Blanc, MI – GM Parts announces the immediate availability of remanufactured 8.1L (496 cubic inches) V-8 engines for light- and medium-duty truck applications. They are delivered in long-block form, for an alternative to rebuilding.

The engines are based on the robust, L18-code "big-block" engine used on a variety of GM’s heavy-duty pickups, full-size vans and medium-duty trucks from 2001 to 2009, and featured sequential fuel injection and coil-near-plug ignition. Four versions of the engine are offered:
• Part number 19168066 (gasoline and KL5-equipped CNG/LPG-capable) is designed as a 2004-06 replacement engine. It requires the purchase of a new oil pump assembly and screen, per the vehicle application.
• Part number 19211051 (gasoline and KL5-equipped CNG/LPG-capable) is similar to 19168066 above – including the required oil pump assembly and screen – but is designed as a replacement engine for 2007-09 vehicles.
• Part number 12491673 (gasoline) includes a camshaft sprocket designed for 2001-03 applications and requires a camshaft position sensor specific to them. This assembly includes a high-volume oil pump assembly.
• Part number 88984300 (gasoline and KL5-equipped CNG/LPG-capable) is designed as a 2001-03 engine replacement. It includes a high-volume oil pump assembly.

All part numbers are emissions-certified (OBD II) for direct OEM replacement in all 50 states. They are covered for 36 months/100,000 miles by GM’s Service Replacement Powertrain Limited Warranty.

Engines 19168066, 19211051 and 88984300 carry an MSRP (Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price) of $5,772.22; and engine 12491673 has an MSRP of $5,550.

The 8.1L engines are remanufactured to meet or exceed GM’s original specifications for performance, durability, reliability and fit. And in their long-block configuration, the customer simply transfers accessories and components such as the oil pan, valve covers, balancer, etc. to the remanufactured engine.

Remanufacturing Details
The process includes remanufacturing the cylinder block, rotating assembly, cylinder heads and more, using brand-new bearings, seals and gaskets throughout to meet OEM specifications.

Highlights of the remanufacturing process for the cylinder block and rotating assembly include:
• Cylinder block inspected and verified to be free of stress cracks
• Cylinder block bores machined and honed as necessary (with a 0.040-inch maximum overbore)
• New pistons and piston rings, matched to the cylinder bore machining
• Crankshaft inspected and verified for straightness, with all journals ground undersize (0.020-inch maximum) to protect undercut fillets for maximum strength
• Crankshaft journals and seal surfaces are micro-polished
• Reconditioned forged steel connecting rods, with the bore and beam gauged (crankshaft journal and resized, if required).

Details of the cylinder head remanufacturing and other processes include:
• Cylinder head castings are inspected and verified to be free of warping and cracks
• Cylinder head deck is milled; valve guides are reamed, if necessary
• New valves are used (including oversized stems, if necessary)
• The camshaft is inspected and polished to ensure it meets original specifications

In addition to the brand-new intake and exhaust valves, as well as new bearing, seals and gasket, each remanufactured 8.1L engine is fitted with new hydraulic roller lifters, graphite-coated hypereutectic pistons, premium piston rings and timing chain. Engine 12491673 also includes a new high-volume oil pump assembly

The customer must purchase the application-specific oil pump and screen for engines 19168066 and 19211051. GM Parts retailers can assist customers in determining the correct, application-specific oil pump assembly.
