    A buddy of mine is saying the late model Chevy trucks are running 327's. I was dam near positive they stopped making them in '69 or so.
    Am I correct or have I been asleep for 10 years?

    I read an article in four wheeler on the new tahoe's and it had a 327 in it. So they p/u's may be running the same thing although you can upgrade to a big-block in the p/u's and subs

    if you work out the math the 5.3 liters works out to roughly 326.6 cubic inches but they are NOTHING like the old 327's, they are based on the corvettes ls1,,, but the are excellent motors.

    i quess i should also point out the the liter ratings that the auto makers use isn't exact for example 5.0 liters can be a 302ci, 305ci and i belive buick had some 307ci in the eighties that they called 5.0 liters so my numbers aren't completly exact you would have to use the bore size and rod length for the exact size

    Yup! They're 327s. The new 8100 Vortec is 496 cubic inches if I'm not mistaken.

    OK they have a "327" but not the 327. I just don't track the late models anymore. Thanks for the info guys.
