Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The 2300 is a 2.3 L/140 cu in (2287 cc) inline-4 automobile engine produced by the Chevrolet division of General Motors for the 1971-1977 model years. The Chevrolet Vega engine was ahead of its time with its die-cast aluminum-alloy cylinder block. The high-tech block features an alloy with 17 percent silicon. During the machining process, the cylinders were etched leaving the pure silicon particles exposed providing the piston wear surface, eliminating the need for iron cylinder liners. The block has cast iron main caps and a cast iron crankshaft. The engine's cylinder head is cast iron for lower cost, structural integrity and longer camshaft bearing life. The valvetrain features a direct-acting single overhead camshaft design.
