Hi Matt thanks for the info

Just to let you know that we did a 4.12 secs 0-100 kph on the week-end .
Should break the 4 sec mark with better conditions and a closer ratio box -
got Hoosier semi slicks coming -we will definitely break 4 secs with these.

Hi Matt / Bruce

The motor now has 3500 kms on the clock and is getting looser and better each week . I'm running a 3.1 BMW diff and the car was wheel spinning thru 1st and 2nd and only really hooking up in 3rd gear , so we fitted a limited slip diff. which now has the car launching with minimal spin .

The motor has performed 100 % flawlessly , This motor is angry man !!! and the car is now the quickest in my province and possibly top 5 street legal in the entire country.

We have a lot of people over here who drive cobra's and are very interested in your fabulous engines.

Hi matt, just started my 383 stroker you built for me on monday. All I can say is WOW you guys at engine factory did a GREAT JOB WHAT A MONSTER. I havn't even got on it at all and I can tell its a beast. I put it in my 55 chevy with a new tremec tko 500 and mccloud clutch and shifter and a stock 55 rear end. I guess you where right, 475 horsepower is plenty. Thanks again and call when you can, I have one or two questions

Thanks for your email, funny that you ask this to somebody who lives on the other side of the ocean.

I bought the engine last year and drove about 3000 miles with it. I can say just one thing. AWESOME. Sins I installed the engine, the smile one my face has never left. Great power and torque in that engine.

The parts that are joust are from a great quality, all Edelbrock and other good brands. The total assembly looks great, especially with a March Serpentine set in front. Matt and Bruce are really friendly guys. You can call them any time you want, and they always take the time to answer your questions.

I will put in some pictures of my engine, and see for your self. Just give them a call and find out your self.
Ps. Please send me some pictures of your Chevelle, I am ferry queries.

Hi Bruce
Trust you are well

Just to give you an update

We raced the car for the first time on the track this week-end (with street legal tires) . The engine has certainly impressed a lot people and it performed absolutely flawlessly . It out dragged most cars out the corners and up the hills. The track did not have a very long straight so we couldn't really see the top end - We got a 3rd place (out of 16) in our class - 1st and 2nd had slicks , so I am sure if we put slicks on we could have bettered our time.

Hi Chris

Well it's been a year now and I thought you would like to hear how the 351w 400hp you sent me is doing. I have put on 6,830 miles on the motor. I am happy to say the oil pressure is still around 80 psi. as it tested at your shop. At an idle it drops to about 55 to 60 psi. Over all I have been extremely happy with the motor, your staff and of course you. When I talked to you the 1st. time you helped me through the process as this was my first time ordering something this big on-line. I recommend you and the Engine Factory to anyone asks. I have attached a few pictures for you also. Oh by the way also saw the 383 stroker that was sold at Barrett Jackson this year. Was surprised when I saw the Engine Factory name displayed. Once again thank you for the great engine and service you gave me.

Happy Customer

Thanks for the great engine

I don't think I could have asked for a better engine. I have had a lot of
fun with it. The engine I bought was a 350 with 400 HP. I put it in a 69
Camaro SS. It runs and sounds great. I have enclosed some pictures I hope
you enjoy. Thanks for such a great motor.

Matt and all the engine factory folks,

Great job on the 383 stroker purchased for my 1967 Corvette. This was my first crate engine.

There are many crate engine suppliers to chose from, but after research and discussion on forums and other sources, I chose the engine factory. You and your team have been honest and build the quality and reliability engine I was looking for. There were no disappointments. The engine was delivered on time and well represented with no surprises.

I've enclosed some photos of the old engine, the new engine arriving, installed and finished in the car. The engine fired right up with very little effort, no oil or water leaks and ran strong. I'm looking forward to many miles with this engine with the quality and reliability of the work completed by the engine factory folks.

Thank you and enjoy the Christmas season

Matt and Bruce,
It has almost been a year since I purchased my 502 Pro-Flow Big Block, It was installed in a 1995 Chevrolet WT1500 Pickup with a Bowtie 700R4. At present I am using the stock rear-end. The engine performs great and I haven't had anything pass me that I did not let (Blue Light On Top). Everyone I meet wants to know what is under the hood. I tell them where I bought it but they'll just have to keep on guessing about what it is unless they visit my web page at http://www.geocities.com/ronjon49 and follow the links. Keep up the great work.

God Bless America,

Dear Matt,

Just finished my 69 RS Camaro project using your 383 /450 Hp. Stroker motor and a Bowtie Overdrive 700R4 Transmission. The 383 Fired right up and has the power and low end torque that I was looking for.

Great Job!

hey matt! i told u the pics were coming. everyone who buys an engine from the engine factory will find no disappointments. the motor in the truck looks good and performs even better. this truck started out as a weekend project and ended up as a 14 month job. nothing was over looked. everything was replaced to be a high performance truck. almost put it in the trees first time i shoved the throttle. one important thing to all customers.....watch that tape you get with your motor and no short cuts. it is worth the patience. take your time and enjoy the results!!!!

Hello, my name is Randy and I bought one of your 450hp 383 Stroker motors for my 1970 Chevelle. I got it almost a year ago and I've been very happy w/ the motor. This truly is a quality motor, and I feel it was worth every penny. You guys were also able to put me in contact w/ a tranny dealer in my state and I got a really good 700r4.

Dear Engine Factory,
We (my father and I) purchased a turn key 350 from your company a little over a year ago. The motor has been Awesome! I installed the motor into our 1972 Nova SS. The car has been reborn! It sounds mean, runs hard, and turns heads everywhere it goes! We recently entered the car in a local car show. We expected nothing more than to see some nice rides and get some show experience. However, when the awards were announced, our car took HOTTEST ENGINE! And by the way, the air cleaner still proudly wears the
"Engine Factory.com" emblem.

Thank You Engine Factory,

I just wanted to say that your 383 450 hp engine does every thing you said it would do. The quality of engine parts you use is beyond any other engine on the market. I believe the engine makes more that the 450 horsepower. This is the second engine that I have purchase from you. The first was a Pontiac 455 in 1999. that engine is still going strong. I have enclosed a few picture of the 383 in my truck.

Hey, Matt & Nelson,

Thought I would let you know, after 2 years of frame off restoration, I'm finally on the road with my 55 Chevy truck. ( 350/430 hp )

And all I can say about the engine I bought is "AWESOME"  This truck just grabs the highway and is gone!  Gotta take a picture and send to you guys.

Again thanks for the great job on the motor, it's everything you said it would be.  Did everything to the engine you suggested in the video.

Again THANKS

I would like to thank all the guys at the engine factory and especially Matt for the wonderful work they did on my engine for my 1967 Chevy II Nova SS. It looks and runs great. I would recommend the engine factory to anyone who wants a quality engine and GREAT SERVICE!!!!

I can’t say enough about the service I have received since buying my engine. There aren’t many companies or people who will always take the time to answer any questions you have as well as take care of any problems that might arise. I did some research before buying from the engine factory and I can truthfully say that not one person I spoke to had any bad dealings with you guys! Well, add me to your list of satisfied customers!

I bought the 383 CUI 450 HP for my 76 Chevy CAMARO, and I am very happy with the results.
The day that I received the engine I felt like a small child again. The engine with the March Serpentine looked great. There wasn’t even a finger print on the engine, just beautiful.

    

We installed the engine with my friend Roel from “Roels Cars and Bikes” we started it up for the first time. It runs immediately. Great sound and quick on the throttle. After a 600 Mls easy ride I could try the engine. Man… what a power in that engine, just awesome. Everybody who drives with me is totally surprised about the performance of the engine.
I would recommend everybody who is considering to by a new engine, to by it with you guy’s
Now is my car “To Fast. To Real” Thanks for the beautiful engine, great service and support.

Bruce, Here's that 79 truck. Lots of people ask why I would put an engine like this is the old beast. All I can say is the truck has sentimental value (it belonged to my grandfather). I installed it myself and did a little dress up under the hood. This truck has only failed to bring me home one time in the last 12 years and that's when I stuck it in a farm pond about 4 feet deep. I love this truck and would not take anything for it.

Thanks to all the guys at the Engine Factory for the heart transplant. This engine really brought the Black Beast back to life.

THANKS FOR A GREAT ENGINE!!!!!

383 stroker performance and opinions
Matt and Bruce I went to a local vette show and my car got the most attention along with a 1963 split window that was corectly restored. There were 65 vettes there. I ran a 11.9 in the 1/4 mile @ 126MPH and a 0-60 in 4.2 seconds. This is with a 3:08 rear end and street tires. questions here are some pics of my car and some pics of the vette show. Thank you for a great engine, I've had no problems with the engine from day one to the 1500 miles I've put on it so far other than tearing up a 2004R stage 3 transmission. I've had that repaired and have a heavy duty torque converter. Lord knows what I'd run with 3:73 gears or lower.

Hi Matt, and all the guys at the Engine Factory,     I'm so excited about my new engine. It is nice to know that you can order an engine on line and have it shipped right to your house and be ready to run. It has been in my Nova now for about two weeks and I can't believe all the power it has, and it seems to be getting better every day. You guys are the best! I plan on putting it in the car show next month here in Santa Barbara.     I'm Stoked on my Stroker.  Here are couple of pictures.  thanks Steve

My name is Adam Clark, California, and I just recently bought a 430 hp Chevy motor from  Engine factory     I did all the research and parts ordering myself as well as the installation of all the components from the engine through the drive train.  I recently received the motor from you guys and had it installed in a matter of hours.  But of course I had to make it pretty, installed a TH700r4 with a 3000 stall and replaced everything throughout the drive train to make sure it would hold up to the beast of a motor .        It took about 10  seconds to prime the fuel pump and magically the motor fired.  I was so impressed with how easy it fired I took the time to check for some type of leak.  NONE.  And after a week of driving this machine, still NONE.  I am extremely happy with your product.  Plenty of power and sound for ten of me.  I have referred you guys to many of my friends and people I just met.  I will e-mail again once I tear up Infineon Raceway Drag Strip.  Thanks again and my best regards.

Chevy Small Block 480HP for Dwight Simon, Long Beach, in.

Bruce & Matt, received the engine, accompanying literature and video tape of my engine being started up.  Everything was just perfect.  You pay particular attention to details with accurate follow up techniques.  The engine was installed in my 71' vette w/o any problems ( didn't have to even remove the plugs/wires to slip the headers on ) fired it up and it ran just fine.  All I added was gas, radiator hook up, headers and ignition.  The twin set of photos depicting the engine build up you sent - prior to my receiving the engine - made great conversation for my motor head friends.  When I began my search for a HP small block I called American Speed, Summit, Golen and MAS - received friendly short yes/no answers but no real info.  Your internet Engine Factory description answered all my questions and the one about the Hooker header fit was resolved by Matt who called Hooker .  They did fit.  Really appreciate your class operation.  Good fair price for a strong engine.  I've never been a patronizing person but I would very much recommend the Engine Factory for HP motors.  Thanks.     Dwight Simon   Long Beach

Dear Matt and Engine Factory Crew,

I've enclosed a few pictures following the installation of my Chevy 383 Stroker engine in my Cobra replica. Wow what a beast! The engine looks fantastic, and I'm getting sub 4.0 second 0-60 times when I can get the tires to grip!  In top gear, the car cruises at 70mph at 1900 rpm through a Tremec TKO and 3.31 diff.

Once again thanks for a great engine and great service, and I've recommended you to my friends across the pond here!

Just Wanted to write and tell you how happy I am with the 331 stroker that the Engine Factory assembled for me.  Your mechanics are great and I appreciate  working with my special requests.  Enclosed are a couple of pictures of the engine installed in my ERA Cobra (289 FAI).

Thanks again for the great work and feel free to use me for a reference in the future.

Dear Matt, and the rest of the crew at Engine Factory,

Just wanted to thank all of you for the “Fantastic Customer Service” to go along with the Awesome 383 Stroker V-8 you built for us.  As advertised, the motor was absolutely a complete turnkey motor.   Hook up a few wires, fuel and water hoses and fire it up.

Our actual use for this particular motor was in a Lamborghini Diablo Roadster Replica, that was built by us, for a customer in Orlando Florida.  The car itself was a tube framed car, Your Chevy –383 Stroker mid-mounted, Porche transaxle, curb weight of 3050 lbs, 335-35-17 rear tires.  Now the performance on this car was incredible, and right on parr with the actual Lamborghini. 

With this configuration, we were able to record 0-60 best time of  “3.9 seconds”.   Keep in mind, this was achieved at our Location in El Paso TX.  At 4000 feet above sea level.   This reading was recorded with a G-Tech Meter.   Due to traffic restraints when we were attempting our times, we were unable to achieve an accurate reading for the ¼ mile, but our best approximation for the ¼ mile would be around 12.5 seconds. 

All of us here at Wild Rides were sure that all 447 horses were present accounted for.  The motor itself was Absolutely perfect.  Right out of the box, the engine fired up and idled perfectly.   One of the biggest surprises about the Motor was, its willingness to just cruise around at average speeds and on 91 octane Pump gas.   This motor will drive around in bumper to bumper traffic, as well as run 0-60 in 3.9 secs.  

I would also like to thank Matt for the extra technical help and Information that he provided in helping us with our Mid-Engine configuration.  Needless to say, we hope to be able to build many more Diablos with Engine Factory Motors in them, and hope to continue a good business relationship between Wild Rides and The Engine Factory.    Thanks Again

Sincerely,

Luis A. Yanez

BRUCE AND MATT THANKS FOR THE AWESOME 383 STREET STROKER THAT WE PURCHASED FROM YOU OVER 2 YEARS AGO. WE INSTALLED IT IN A 1967 PORSCHE 911 PROJECT CAR, THE ENGINE IS EVERYTHING THAT YOU SAID IT WOULD BE !!!! IT CONSISTENTLY TURNS IN THE LOW 10’S, WE FEEL WE WILL BE IN THE 9’S ONCE WE CAN GET THE REAR TIRES TO BITE.

 

WE ARE PLANNING TO SHOW IT OFF AT THE HOT ROD MAGAZINE TOUR AT THE END OF THE MONTH, WE WILL DO THE ENTIRE SHOW FROM NASHVILLE TO DALLAS.  THANKS AGAIN L.C.    WESTCOASTVINTAGE.COM

 

HEY MATT I BOUGHT YOUR 450 HORSEPOWER STROKER FOR MY JAGUAR A COULPLE OF YEARS AGO AND IT IS RUNNING BEAUTIFULLY. I NEED YOUR EXPERTIZE ON A TRANSMISSION CHANGE, GIVE ME A CALL OR EMAIL. YOUR VERY SATISFIED CUSTOMER STEVE MONEYMAKER ALLENTOWN PA.

 January 11, 2005

Matt,
I just finished the installation of my 383 Stroker motor today.  I did a lot of customizing under the hood, hiding wires, vacuum lines, etc., and the engine compartment came out great.  I did the complete install myself (my first engine replacement) and was somewhat nervous about turning the key for the first time.  I must have checked and rechecked everything 10 times, as well as watched the video even more to make sure I wasn't missing anything.

Once I felt comfortable all was done, I turned the key.  The engine started IMMEDIATELY!  It did not even crank over a few times, but started right away.  I was floored.  It sounds great and runs even better.  To say that I am pleased is an extreme understatement.

Other than that, all I can say is thank you for what seems to be a phenomenal engine.  It runs great, looks great, and sounds great. I can't begin to express how happy I am that I went with your company instead of a GM crate motor or other engine builder.

If you have any decals for the 383, your company, or both, I would appreciate it if you could send me a few.  I am planning on showing the car this Spring and I will be more that happy to advertise who did the motor for me.  I have also forwarded your name to other guys on my department and some retired guys looking for a motor for their projects.

Thanks again, and as soon as I have pictures, I will forward them to you.

I'm writing you to say thanks for the kick ass 383 stroker. My friends and I installed it over the summer and I now use it as my daily driver. Very fast!
Your service was perfect as well as the instructional tape. Really helped me out. I've got the engine hooked up to a t400 transmission with a 411 dif. It's been fun pissing off all the little BMWs & AUDIs on the blvd. Thanks again.

An Over Due & Sincerely Well Deserved Engine Update...

Reference customer letter dated June 11th, 2000

Its been over four years and tens of thousands of miles since the day my wife & I installed the Engine Factory built turnkey Mopar HP 440ci BB in our 1973 Dodge Powerwagon. Looking back I can simply say, I have experienced "THE BEST."

This engine has muscled through it all, from every day endless stop & go commuting circles to long & unforgiving road trips. With just a touch of the key, it never failed to start and deliver drool bucket filling high performance!

This engine has screamed my 8000 lb. 4x4 mountain of metal out of waist high mud holes, chirped  35" tires in all gears leaving behind plenty of late model Mustangs sporting bruised ego's, (not too mention the GM crowd), and my personal favorite, provided hours of fun terrorizing Mazda Miatas and fine European automobiles.

This engine has received intelligent regular routine maintenance, it has logged no engine related down time, required no auto shop expenditures, holds consistent compression numbers and in closing to be fair as of late it has begun to use a small amount of oil between changes, but to date has not leaked a drop.

Thanks for years of "Built Tight, Built Right" American Made Muscle Fun! 

Regards,
Mark Jutson

Matt/ Bruce

I received the engine yesterday. It all went pretty smooth and it is now resting in my garage next to the 55. It certainly looks good and seems well put together so I really look forward to have it installed and fired up. If this baby runs as good as it looks I will definitely be pleased. It will, however, take some time since I will be redoing the engine compartment as well as rebuilding the TH350 along with other tasks at hand. This includes power steering, side engine mounts, new steering coloumn, upgrading the dash including instruments/ trim etc. +++. Anyway I am pleased with your services so far , and I will let you know the progress as I go along. Hope to be all done by end of March. This should then be a nice piece to show off to promote the services of Engine Factory.

Thanks

I took Cobra out for the first time today. I went down the street to a empty parking lot to just check the brakes and to make sure everything was screwed on tight. On the way back I started out slow in 1st. then hit 2nd. and nailed it.  OH MY GOD!!! I 'll never do that again. I came home and changed my shorts!! 400+ HP is way too much for a 2300 lb. car. She handles like she's on rails and when I get into 5th gear she quiets down and just burbles along real nice.  Exhaust is exteremely loud but engine sounds nasty ---yeah!! Thanks for your help I'll get down there this summer to show you the finished product.  Please Read his poem

Subject: 29 Model A pics
Matt,

I finally got it back together. Hope the pics are clear enough for your web site. I installed a TPI built 700R4 and 9” Ford with 370 posi. I also had to install a rear four bar setup as your engine twisted the radius rods that were there before. I wish I had gone with a 410 gear with the 32” tires, overdrive is strictly out on the highway, and then only 2,000 rpm at highway speed. The idle is exactly what I was looking for, THANKS, and the motor is plenty stout. More about the car; 29 all original steel Model A, top chopped 5”, frame modified, electric windows, AC, heat, AM-FM-CD with subwoofer and good speakers. Not really a show car but looks good going down the road, and goes down the road very well with your 465hp turnkey engine.

Thanks for all your help in making this engine happen for me.

Matt, I purchased your 383 Stroker in April of 2002 - runs perfectly, no problems ever. The Stroker went into a custom 68 Nova...soon to be shown in local and regional car shows (still needs exterior paint to match interior). I currently have about 800 - 1,000 miles on the engine. After installation, I was pleased with the power levels. At around 500 miles, I discovered that the engine started running better and faster every week I drove it. Although I have not raced it "YET," my son has many friends in local race clubs - he's ridden in their cars and the Nova blows them away! Thank you for the "EXCELLENT" job, Keith Rose 
p.s. I have referred many people to your site...I'm confident they will use you, when their projects near that stage.

Chris & the Ford team @ engine factory,

Well guys i have about 300 miles on the engine now, plus a Car Show in Chesapeake Va; where i took 2nd place in my class. You guys would not believe the the number of people crowded around that car to look at that awesome engine and ask, WHERE THE HELL DID YOU BUY THAT ENGINE!!

EVEN WITH YOU STICKER ON THE AIR CLEANER!!

I might have sold a coupe that week. how about sending me some business card when you get a chance!! I will pass them out among our club members.

I only have 1 problem, all the gear heads i meet at 7-11 or at car shows want to race me!! of course i refuse gracefully by telling them i only have a few miles on the engine.

I did take her up to 75 or 80 a few times and didn't take long to get there, seemed like a few seconds.

Chris for your info notes, if someone uses 76 to 81 Granada spindles for disc brake application tell them they have to change the inner and outer tie rods, center link, and pitman bar to Granada also.

I can not thank you guys enough for the fine job that was done on that engine, runs, sounds a performs GREAT!!!!

Talk again later only 150 more for the oil and filter chg.

Dear Bruce,

    Buying your turnkey engine was the best decision I made for my 1953 Corvette Replica Project.  Since the body must be dropped on over the engine, any engine problems would have been a major  hassle.  The engine started right up, and ran perfectly.  I especially liked that all the accessories, brackets and belts were installed.

     I would recommend anyone building a kit car, or hot rod to use one of your turnkey engines.  You simply cannot beat the power, the quality or the price.

Sincerely,
John M. Cuth, P.E.

Dear Matt and everyone else at the Engine Factory,

    I just wanted to drop you guys a letter and thank you for the great customer service that I received when I purchased a turnkey Chevy 350,420 hp for my 1966 Malibu Chevelle SS Convertible.

    I ran across your web site," to good to be true!". But I decided to call and get more information and spoke with Matt, who was very helpful and after a few phone calls back and forth, Matt answered all my concerns so I went ahead and ordered my motor.

    My engine arrived exactly on the day Matt promised me and my brother-in-law and my self had it installed and running in 2 days. I purchased and installed hedman headers, new chrome alternator, chrome pulleys for water pump, crank, power steering pump and all chrome brackets for everything. I also purchased and installed a new TCI breakaway torque converter and had my original 2-speed powerglide completely rebuilt using new racing input shaft and hub to handle the new horsepower. To top it off I added dual flow master delta series mufflers, trust me she rumbles now!!

    I now have 500 miles on my motor and I have been pretty good about "taking it easy" since its so new. But if anybody is  still thinking about whether or not to buy a motor from the Engine Factory, do it, you won't be disappointed. This motor runs so well and sounds even better. 

    I will be taking my car to many car shows this summer and you can bet I won't be the guy who is afraid to open his hood. I will be telling everybody about my great experience with The Engine Factory!!!!

    Thanks guys!
    Sincerly,

Engine Factory: I want to thank all of you and especially Christian for the help in building me a great 325-350H.P. 400M engine. I have had this Bronco since new in 78 and have done nothing but service the stock engine. I think you guys kind of broke the ice on building great 351-400M engines. I had considered a 429-460 swap, but I knew these M engines were torkey. With the compression you gave me and the Edelbrock intake and carb. this thing just gets better and better. Thanks so much and I will be happy to use your services again. Bill (Hot Rod) Whitley

Thanks Engine Factory

 

When the new engine arrived it was installed the next day and started the following day.  The engine runs great and looks even better.  It is everything I expected and then some.  I am a very picky person and I will say that Bruce and your crew did a wonderful job fulfilling my needs.

 

I have to say to you Bruce you went way beyond anything I ever expected in handling a potentially negative situation.  It makes me feel good to still know there are good honest people still in business today.  To you and your company a very special thanks.

Christian:

    I'm so pleased with the 347 stroker engine that you sold me. Relative to performance....it is awesome!!! The stroker blows my Bronco (weight over 4400 pounds) down the road without breaking a sweat and just eats up the mountain passes without hardly giving it any extra gas. I doubt if I will ever have to hit the passing gear in normal driving. I did try it out once, pushing it to the floor for a second.... when it kicked in, it just exploded!! In fact, it sort of shocked me, not being used to that kind of power! The biggest surprise (and nicest) is the increase in my gas mileage. It has almost doubled! Since I am burning the highest octane I can get at the pumps and considering the price of gas, it is really a bonus! I imagine it should have been somewhat expected since I now have an engine that can really breath and doesn't have to work nearly as hard as the 302 it replaced. (Also, there is no exhaust pollution crap left that originally came with the car... you can open the hood, find the engine and have plenty of room to work on it yourself and don't have to take it to some dealership and hook it up to their computers and pay $75.00 an hour!)

 

    Well, That is it. Just thought you might like to know how things turned out. Again I want to thank you for the manner in which you do business. I will try to steer any business I can your direction in the future. Your video was appreciated and it is a nice touch for your customers.

Christian,

 Subject: OLDS 455

    I finally had some extra time and wanted to express my gratitude for the quality product and the high level of professionalism that I received when dealing with the Engine Factory.

    Approximately a year and a half ago I was looking for a place to get a High performance 455 oldsmobile motor for my 72 cutlass.I saw a lot of companies that advertised these motors rebuilt as long blocks. However, when I called these companies, I got the run around. Then I happened across the web site for the Engine Factory. I figured I'd have to buy a long block, assemble the rest myself, and I still only have a stock performing motor. At first I found what I believed to be the Engine Factories "claims" hard to believe, especially for the price. But from my experience, no one else would even claim what these guys said they would do. Who backs up their work with a warranty on a high performance motor that has not been in production since 1976?! So I decided to give them a try. When I called time after time asking about different specs on the motor, they treated me AS A MONEY PAYING CUSTOMER SHOULD BE. WITH RESPECT AND IN A PROFESSIONAL MANNER. Not as a person who was bothering them and were too busy to deal with. It's been my experience that these are qualities that few businesses have. I was very impressed. 

    Now when they shipped the motor to me and I installed it what happened? It fired on the first try! I did not have to make one adjustment to anything. This was one of the best running engines I had ever seen. Very smooth and powerful, like a brand new engine. Now the real test. After putting about 800 miles on the engine, I found I was relocating from Louisiana to Illinois. I drove that car for 1014 miles without one problem. That was eight months ago and still haven't had to do anything except change the oil and air filter. After all that, I don't know what else to say. I'm beyond impressed and would recommend this company to anyone with no doubt they would be completely satisfied. Also I'LL be sending pictures later to show the results of the car and the beauty of this engine. 

Thanks again, you did a great job!

        The engine I received from the Engine Factory was the 440 mopar 451 HP version, and its a beauty. The motor came as promised, the color I wanted (race hemi orange), oil, filter, pump primed, ect,ect. The original motor was a 383 that I spun a rod bearing on, as a result of a poor rebuild. After my uncle and I looked at all our options we decided to give Engine Factory a shot, we looked at rebuilding the 383 but wanted more power so opted for a 440. We looked at using a PAWS (performance automotive warehouse) 440 but they offered no warranty and the motor required assembly. It was one of those you bought it now you own it deals! I was leary of the Engine Factory as I never heard of them, in fact I was surfing the net looking for a builder of  440's when I found them. I don't know about you but a place you've never seen any work from scares me, but I decided to gamble after talking to Christian. The motor arrived, and what a pleasant surprise. What I thought was neat besides the appearance was that whoever had built the motor at their facility had signed the block! To me it shows pride of workmanship. There in blue lettering by a freeze plug says Tim. Now that the engine broke in (800 miles) I'm glad I made the purchase. No leaks, no problems, nothing bad to say. The warranty looks good? I hope I never have to claim it! In comparison the warranty is as detailed as any GM crate warranty, as I bought a 350 a year ago for my truck. Although the GM is 3yrs/50K. I never thought any place would offer over 90 days on a performance motor though. I know Mopar and GM don't on their motors. The bottom line is I would strongly recommended Engine Factory!!!!!

Aloha Christian,

Well, today I received the tape!!!

Put it right into the VCR immediately.

 All I can say is: AWESOME!! I am "stoked" as we say in the Suring world. 

I've watched the whole 12 minute tape at least 4 times now. And I am incredibly amped up. I'll watch it with some friends and my installer before the "piece" arrives I'm sure. You guys aren't kidding around when you say the "Muscle Car Division". I'm assuming that was Bruce who made the tape, and he's your dad? Tell him he did a GREAT job with the video. My mechanic and I should have no trouble following his instructions. I am Totally Prepared.

 The original 36 year old row radiator was replaced only 3 months ago (approx. 1200 miles ago") with a brand new  3 row "Desert Performance Radiator". I have a new clamps too. I also have a 6 blade 17" Flex Fan. But would consider a shroud and/or an electric fan too, if necessary. The pulleys and water pump and oil pan are goanna be a perfect fit.

The thermostat instructions are very clear, and I do have a full set of gauges, (water temp, oil press, and volts). Here in Hawaii, even thought it never goes below 60 degrees, it also never goes above 90 either. I guess it was close to 90 just yesterday. in Jersey. Only 80 here. But yeah I will probably install the thermostat after 400-500 miles of break- in. my original 289 runs a clean cool 180 degrees. 

I also have all the other parts to put on my new "Mill". Some Hooker #6901 ceramic coated headers, a chromed alternator, a 2400 stall converter, and a chromed transmission oil pan. My wife says she thinks the road will really appreciate that. This is her way of joking around. I didn't laugh, much. I will be checking with the freight company on Friday about the shipment, confirming dates ect. After that I will touch base with you and wish you another good weekend.

Mahalo (thanks)

Seldom does a guy want to express his gratitude for such a quality product, 

but I feel I must in saying you guys put out a superior product. The motor 

you guys sent me is awesome to say the least. I've only got 380 miles on 

it and it continues to gain more power. I can't wait for 500 miles when I can put my foot in her!!!!!!!!!

 

    Many Thanks Ryan Lamasters- Becko101@aol.com

            Approximately 6 years ago I purchased a 302 engine and to this date it has 

286,334 miles on it and except to change the valve cover gaskets it has 

never been apart. Needless to say I'm quite pleased with the engine so 

much that I decided to purchase a 351 engine for an 84 F150 that I recently 

purchased. Keep up the good work! 

                        Thank You,

Thanks Engine Factory it has been more than a year since I installed my 390 Horsepower Chevy from your company. This engine is AWESOME! It runs perfect, it doesn't leak any fluids and gets faster each day. Your cam and head combination works perfect for my pick-up truck and to my surprise it went right through a California Emissions test. Keep up the good work.

Thank you,

I really want to thank you for putting a strong engine together for my `67 Chevy step side. It looks great and turned many heads with just me installing it. Once I fired that baby up I fell in love. Once I add the rest of my upgrades to my truck I'm sure I'll be well more than satisfied. I just needed a good starting block such as your 383 Stroker for the performance I'm looking for. It is a very strong running engine and if it lasts as long as it runs...it will be around for more fun to come.

Thank you,

        David B, 

        Santa Fe TX,

 

 Picked up motor@ trucking terminal yesterday, and fired it up last night. Everything bolted up well except the flywheel. Had to use my old one to match my starter, no big deal. Had a bit of consternation in trying to put my steering pump/A/C brackets back on there (my problem, not y'alls, which is a word down here by the way) and the headers (hookers) were worse than the motor to put in But... it is beautiful thing! Even my wife's eyes got a twinkle when it lit up the 1st time. Very cool. The only problem I see is that you misspelled my name on the BLOCK! LOL!!

        Oh. Watched the video last night afterwards... not bad cinematography either. Was that Cecille B. de Matt? Outstanding! I really just wanted to say thanks again to y'all, especially Matt for getting that motor shipped out so quick. I do have a couple people watching all this REAL interestedly, you know, I'm their guinea pig. Oddly enough, I can't find anyone else who has ever purchased an engine over the internet! Strange, huh? But I truly have nothing but praise for you guys, and if I can help steer anyone else your way I can and will do so. Y'all do pretty damn well for a bunch of Yankees! (no offense!)

    Your redneck customer,

            Allen. P.S. are there any Giants fans working up there?

 

Att: Chris/Tim

To the workers at the Engine Factory,

    I've had my 450 + horsepower 455 for almost a year now and... 

You should know that it doesn't leak any fluid, make any unwanted noises (rods lifters & so in) starts all the time and , keeps getting faster. I'm very happy with this motor and would recommend the Engine Factory to anyone. Pontiac engine builders are hard to come by & I feel I've hit a home run this time.

Thanks Again,

Matt, Chris, Bruce,   

& the whole “Engine Factory Crew”

Pictured is my newMOPAR 440 TURN KEY ENGINE(1973 dodge w200 4x4) which was delivered ON TIME & WITHIN BUDGET.  My last two experiences, with California engine builders resulted in one cracked head and the second ended with a piston melt down. This supplied by local professional engine re-manufacturing operations.

Your product, quality and service lived up to the advertising. And as they say “The third times a charm”. 

Why Listen to the so called local profesionals!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I’ll send you an update after I get tired of driving around, Its Awesome

Dear Christian,

Just wanted to pass on my sincere "THANKS" for a job well done.

 

The performance package we added to the 350 olds engine is exactly what my 72 cutlass "S" needed. The engine, now 800 miles old, has been running very well.

 

Pass on my thanks to Tim, who built my engine. Tell him he did a great job and that his name on the block will be around for a long time.

 

Believe me when I say, everyone around here has been hearing about you guys down there. Keep up the good work.
