The GM LE2 was the first 2.8 litre 60° engine. It was produced in as a front wheel drive Transverse model as well as a longitudinal rear wheel drive engine in 1980. These engines were constantly updated with larger main journals for durability, but production ended in 1986. The 1981 high out-put LH7 is still in use as a 135 horsepower 2-barrel carburetor model, but it was replaced for the most part in 1984 by the MFI L44. The L44 was the first engine to use Multi-Port fuel injection.

A 3.1 L44 version appeared in 1990 with a longer stroke and longer bore. Production of the longitudinal 3.1 engine ended in 1994, and all production ended for longitudinal engines in 1996 when the next generation of 3.1 engines was introduced. The next generation, which GM called the generation III was used in the 1994-2005 Buick Century, 1989-1996 Buick Regal, the 1994-1998 Buick Skylark, the 1990-1992 Camaro, 1990-1994 Cavalier, and other models in the Pontiac, Oldsmobile, and Chevy lineup. The generation III models were the first engines to combine iron with aluminum.

The LG6 3.1 litre engine with throttle-bottle injection and iron heads kept the sales on the Chevy Lumina, Pontiac Transport, and the Isuzu Pup in the acceptable range from 1990 to 1996, and the 3.1 LHO which produced 135 horsepower and 180 ft-lbs of torque made the early 1990s Chevy models competitive, but the LG5 3.1 turbocharged with more nickel content in its block than previous engines kept two Pontiac models popular for only one selling year between 1989 and 1990.

The L82 was the 3.1 engine update that featured a structural oil pan, sequential fuel injection, and a redesigned engine block. The bore measured 3.5 inches and the stroke was 3.3 inches. The compression ratio was 9.5:1 with a displacement of 191 CID.
