I do not sell engines, I build engines, mostly street strip combinations, both lower cost "budget" motors and for maximum monster power makers.
WHAT DOES A ENGINE COST?
Cost of parts plus 5% plus labor.
If you have looked at other performance V8 engine websites, you have some idea what engines cost.
My price is lower than Proformance Unlimited and the Engine Factory, but about the same as Shaffiroff.
If you are shopping price then ebay is where to "low price leaders" are found.
I don't build "cheap parts" motors, too risky.
I am a small operation specializing powerful street V8 engines to meet specific needs, either massive low speed torque or upper RPM horsepower.
I don't try to sell you what I like, but rather you and I figure out what you really need for power and price.
You can contact me directly by calling my cell 760-508-4562 8am to 8pm California. If I don't answer it is because I didn't hear the phone ring, try again.
Or you can write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I only build V8 engines Chevrolet Chrysler Ford Pontiac.
Resent combinations include:-
Chevrolet 540 660 Torque @ 3000rpm 710 @ 5000rpm & 711Hp @ 5500rpm
Blown 525 Dodge 825 Tq @ 4500rpm & 850Hp
Ford 552 705 Tq @ 4400 & 675 @ 5500rpm
I do build LS Chevrolet motors but don't advertise combinations any more.
I started out in this field as an apprentice automotive machinist in New Zealand in 1977. I graduated first in my class 1980 and moved to the USA in 1982.
I worked in various machine shops for many years until 2001 when I decided to start building custom high performance engines for those who where looking for something more than the GM crate engine combination, or the Edelbrock heads type motors that were widely sold.
I'm not saying anything against these engines, only that for about the same price I can provide more power because I don't need to add on as much profit to cover my overhead.
I do not keep motors "on the shelf" waiting for an owner. There are too many possible combinations, and I'm yet to build 2 motors exactly the same, except for the line of industrial natural gas and propane V8 truck bus and pump motors I developed.
I'm not a parts store. If you live overseas I can match usually match or beat Summit and Jegs prices, but I'm of most help to you in arranging importation.
If you are in the US I can get you better pricing on cranks and rods and pistons and AFR heads and balanced crank kits, but if you need a carburetor or plug wires my price is about the same as Summit Racing.
The engines I build usually cost a little less than many larger other online companies, but if you are looking for the very lowest price, try ebay.
I like helping people and talking high performance engines. If you write or call I will answer your questions as best I can, but keep in mind I am busy building motors.
Please don't ask me to solve problems with a motor your purchase from another engine builder, that's just not right.
I do promote the use of AFR heads as being the best choice, but I do use many brands like CHI Yates and Kasse. I like Procharger as a great wat to hide a supercharger and Whipple to destroy tires, but also use Vortech and Hampton for GMC Roots style blowers.
I mostly build small and big block Chevys and the newer LS sytle engines.
383s are still the most popular but I can build small block Chevys 427 and 434 when using the Dart SHP block.
Using a Dart block the 590 combination works very well, but it can be pushed up to 660cid if you have the need.I sold the last 772cid monster.
In Ford I do the 302 block as 331 or 347, like everyone else.
With a Windsor the 408 and 418 work very well.
If you want more torque this block will go 427 and 434. If we step up and use a Dart block 467 is about the limit. I made 711Hp at 6400rpm with a Yates Wedge cut head on a 463 Clevor.
The AFR just brought out a 385cc BBC head if you want to build something massive.
The 460 block works well as a 545 and with the Kaase P51 heads makes an effortless 600hp.
I do Chrysler 440 based motors up to 550cid but recommend 520cid as more re3liable, and I do some Pontiac engines
I build motors with blowers, GMC roots, Screw Compressors and Prochargers.
