The purpose of this catalog is to provide a list of the GM Performance Parts products which are available from General Motors dealers and authorized centers. This catalog
is not intended to replace current GM parts catalogs, but rather to provide supplemental information on components which are of interest to performance enthusiasts, engine builders, and racers.
GM Performance Parts has tried to make this catalog as comprehensive and factual as possible. However, since the time of printing, some of the information it contains may have been updated. The right is reserved to make changes at any time, without notice, in equipment, specifications, and materials, or to discontinue items.
The parts listed in this catalog are intended primarily for use in “off-highway” vehicles only. Federal law restricts the removal or modification of any part of Federally required emission control systems on a car or truck.* Further, many states have enacted laws with various penalties for tampering with, or otherwise modifying any required emission or noise control system. Vehicles which are not used on public streets or highways may be exempt from most regulations, but check your own local and state statutes to be sure.
*Section 203(a)(3) of Title II of the Clean Air Act of 1977 provides that the following acts and the causing thereof are prohibited:
“. . . for any person to remove or render inoperative any device or element of design installed on or in a motor vehicle or motor vehicle engine in compliance with regulation under this title prior to its sale and delivery to the ultimate purchaser, or for any manufacturer or dealer to knowingly remove or render inoperative any such device or element of design after such sale and delivery to the ultimate purchaser.”
“. . . for any person engaged in the business of repairing, servicing, selling, leasing or trading motor vehicles or motor vehicle engines, or who operates a fleet of motor vehicles, knowingly to remove or render inoperative any device or element of design installed on or in a motor vehicle or motor vehicle engine in compliance with regulations under this title following its sale and delivery to the ultimate purchaser.”
The Clean Air Act defines “motor vehicle” as a self-propelled vehicle designed for transporting persons or property on a street or highway.
Special Parts Notice
Many of the parts described or listed herein are merchandised for off-highway application only, and are tagged with the following “Special Parts Notice:”
Special Parts Notice
This part has been specifically designed as a GM Performance Parts component and is recommended for off highway application only. Since the installation of this part may either impair your vehicle’s
emission control performance or be uncertified under current Motor Vehicle Safety Standards, it should not be installed in a vehicle used on any street or highway. Additionally, any such application could adversely affect the warranty coverage on such an on-street or highway vehicle.
Due to the nature and intended usage of GM Performance Parts components, the parts in this catalog, except for engines and partial engines, are sold without any express or any implied warranty of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose. The entire risk as to the performance of such parts is with the buyer. Should such parts prove defective following their purchase, the buyer and not the manufacturer, distributor, or retailer, assumes the entire cost of all necessary servicing, repair, damage or loss to property and consequential damage.

General Motors Performance Parts warrants to the original retail purchaser for the time and/or mileage indicated below, that it will repair or replace, at its option, using new or remanufactured parts, any GM Performance Parts engine or partial engine, including partial engines in kits, that fail due to defect in material or workmanship.

GM Dealer Installation—The GM dealer who initially installed the GM Performance Parts engine assembly or any GM dealer may perform the repairs. You must allow a reasonable period of time for repairs following delivery of the vehicle to the GM dealer’s place of business.
Independent Repair Center Installation—The independent repair center that installed the GM Performance Parts engine assembly or any GM dealer may perform repairs. However, before any repairs can be performed under warranty by an independent repair center, a GM dealer must first inspect, and authorize needed repairs as a sublet service.
The GM dealer or independent repair center must be furnished with the purchaser’s original repair order or sales slip, and this warranty certificate (properly completed). This warranty is transferable to subsequent owners by providing the above-required documents to any purchaser of the vehicle in which the GM Performance Parts engine assembly was originally installed.
This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights, which vary from state to state. General Motors does not authorize any person to create for it any other obligations or liability in connection with these GM Performance Parts engines.
ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE APPLICABLE TO GM PERFORMANCE PARTS ENGINES OR PARTS IS LIMITED IN DURATION TO THE DURATION OF THIS WRITTEN WARRANTY. THE PERFORMANCE OF REPAIRS OR REPLACEMENT IS THE EXCLUSIVE REMEDY UNDER THIS WRITTEN WARRANTY OR ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY. GM SHALL NOT BE LIABLE FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES RESULTING FROM BREACH OF THIS WRITTEN WARRANTY OR ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY.
Some states do not allow limitation on how long an implied warranty will last or the exclusion or limitation of incidental or
consequential damages, therefore the above limitation or exclusions may not apply. These engines and partial engines are not designed or approved by General Motors for marine use. Installation of GM Performance Parts may adversely affect GM New Vehicle Warranty. Please consult your dealer for terms and conditions.
