OnStar links to emergency services. The engine has a torque rating between 434 N·m 44.
Unfortunately, the raised deck design complicated the use of the block in racing applications, as standard intake manifolds required spacers for proper fit. These engines were popular for their sufficient power for large vehicles with some small towing requirements, while providing improved fuel economy in comparison with its larger V8 small block counterparts.

Output is 120 hp 89 kW and 140 ft·lb 190 N·m. See for details and limitations.
The spark plugs were inserted vertically into the quench area, which helped to produce a rapidly moving flame front for more complete combustion. It produced 350 to 360 hp 261 to 268 kW. It produces 175 hp 130 kW and 185 ft·lb 251 N·m of torque. Overall, customers are generally happy with the performance and durability of this engine.
