Just wanted to let you guys know I finally installed my engine, I bought it four years ago. Fogged the cylinders with WD-40 and it started on the second crank (I had the kill switch off or it would have started on the first). Great job guys, it sounds fantastic, I had neighbors coming from up and down the street when they heard it start uncapped. Everything you said in your ads and when selling the engine was true. Not a leak, not a miss, no cosmetic defects it simply runs perfect.

Hi Bruce, Matt and Brad,
Here are pics and video of the 350 400 horse engine you built for my 1971 Corvette. Everything went in fine and everything clears. Going for a ride before the snow comes!
You guys will get a lot of free advertising at the car shows this summer. There are no not a lot of sleepers like this car around here with that kind of horse power tucked under a stock hood.
Finally got my 1969 olds all done thought I would send you some photos of the awesome 383 Chevy. you all built for me the thing about projects is they some times take a lot longer then your think, but after having that motor sit for two years it did just what you all say, it fired right up.! runs great.

Bruce / Christian / Robert:
It has been awhile since we last communicated.
My kit delivered 1/31/2010. I drove it for the first time 7/4/2010.
My car went to paint and interior over the winter and was completed 2/17/2011. Just in time for the 2011 Dallas Autorama where it made its debut.
I have entered 9 shows and taken 9 1st place plaques or trophies.
I wanted to send a note to say “Thank you” for building me an amazing engine. The 418W Stroker gets tons of comments and has provided me 7500+ miles of trouble free joy. A few adjustments and a couple oil changes is all I have had to do.
As you can tell, I drive it as often as possible.
Remember the black pulleys, valve covers, and air cleaner?
The car was photographed back in March 2011 and will be making an appearance in Kit Car Builder magazine at some point.
Here are some pics of the final product.
Thank you again for a great product.

My 383 stocker was delivered to me on time and 100% as ordered in 2009, and 26000 miles later it still runs strong and my 49 Thames can lift the front wheels 2 feet in the air at will. Good people, good engine, good value.
I just wanted to express my sincere appreciation for the beautiful 383 Stroker you built for my 1974 Chevelle. I must admit I was a little apprehensive about making a purchase of that magnitude sight unseen. Matt was extremely patient and detailed with all aspects of the build from start to finish to delivery and even after service. I can’t thank you enough Matt for treating me with respect and a person not just a sale! This engine is a beast and my brother is smiling down on me and riding with me. If your looking at other places there is no comparison buy engine factory or don’t buy it!!!
First car show first place!
Thanks engine factory for building me an awesome engine and all your technical support.
Here is a photo of my car in the car show this weekend. It placed First in the class they put me in against 250 entries.

Back in 2002, I received my 302 in California – Packaging was first rate… now in Hawaii and after close to 165K miles the engine is rock solid – smooth as a baby’s bottom – I have to replace the rocker gaskets and – while at it- the intake gaskets…I was unsure of the port size for gasket selection so sent a note to the Engine Factory…. got a rapid response with part #’s and install tips/cautions.
Now that is customer-centric service – and after 14 years!
Thank you Sirs!…
Bruce, Tim and Christian,
Here is my 347 Stroker running for the first time. Absolutely awesome!
Thank you, Tim, for doing such an excellent job with the build.
Thanks to the whole Engine Factory team for putting together easy to follow instructions and providing great service. I recommend Engine Factory to all FFR Roadster builders.

Bruce I would like to add with your email here that I did check out other engine builders and you are right many of them use used or overseas parts from Japan. or China not good. Your engine not only looks good but also runs better than it looks. I am very pleased with the performance of my engine. Also pleased with the service that I got when I purchased the engine. and questions after the purchase. This is where all others fail. You were polite courteous and gave me the answers that I need it. Which incidentally was very nice of you. You made me a lifetime customer. Thanks again Les Wentz 3/30/19

Todd Hallsten, my father, bought his 350 Chevy from Bruce when I was a young buck. BOY does that 68 RS run like a raped ape. It’s a goal on mine to install one in my own classic when I find one and have the funds. The motor in my father’s Camaro has started like new every time for the past 10 years with no tinkering at all, and I mean at all. Enginefactory will be my first call when the day comes.
Thanks again Bruce.

Being a woman, and being far from a mechanic, I somewhat expected to be treated a bit differently, especially with the many questions I had, but that wasn’t the case at all with the Engine Factory family. They were very supportive and helpful in every way. I was beyond impressed with everything about them- from all my phones calls w/questions, fast email replies to even more questions, the email updates of the engine being built, detailed installation instructions, build time, delivery time…..everything. But nothing was more impressive than the engine itself. I wanted to put it in my living room for a few weeks just to stare at it! LOL Just love it! I have another classic car (Mopar) I’m thinking of getting a new engine for sometime in the future and, without a doubt, I’ll be calling the Engine Factory again. You guys are simply Top Notch. Thank you again for all that you do and all that you’ve done. Keep up the outstanding work!

Bruce & Matt along with Tim & Brad did a fantastic job building my new 383ci – 450hp Chevy stroker engine.
The Engine Factory service and professionalism is second to none. I can’t speak highly enough of the way this all went from the first time I contacted Matt about what Engine Factory could offer me through to the email updates everyday of the build with photos and video of my engine under construction and on the test bench when it was complete. This has been a very memorable experience that I’ve thoroughly enjoyed. I’d do it again without hesitation.
Thanks guys. You’re awesome!!

They built a wonderful 383 Stroker for me which went into a Moab-based 1980 Jeep CJ-7 and therefore was treated with a mild cam for low end torque. It still has plenty of hp. Matt was extremely supportive and helpful and answered all my questions. The engine is now 5 years old with almost only trail mileage and is running perfectly. Thank you guys for this super quality engine!

Dear Matt, Bruce and the Team
I have now done 500 miles with my new 383 stroker installed in my AC Cobra Replica and I am very very happy with both the sound and the performance. The customer service, delivery time, engine build time were all exceptional.
I’ve been somewhat tardy in letting you know how the 450 HP 383 Stroker motor is working. I now have 2 summers and 10,000 plus miles on it and it’s as strong as the day we first started it. It’s everything that you said it would be and still as pretty as a picture. I just completed Hot Rod Magazines Drag Week, running 1100 miles in 4 days and making 22 consistent passes at 5 tracks. I’ve hooked it to a 700R4 with a 3800 FTI stall converter. The attached photo tells the story. The next time I need an engine, I won’t even bother shopping; I’ll just call you and order what I want. Your service, delivery, and after the fact help is over and above.
Thank-you for a great experience.

Thank you very much for your time.
I really enjoyed being at the shop on Tuesday.
Excellent tips, warm reception, lots of useful information.
And most important of all, I felt welcome, like at home.
I got a new thermostat housing a s gift and, needless to say, I will recommend The Engine Factory to any person interested in building an engine.
I wanted to thank you and your team for doing such a great job building the engine for my Cobra. It was great to find such a great company so close to home when I was looking for an engine builder for my Cobra. The engine looks great, sounds great and runs great. I really enjoyed working with you and your team. I highly recommend your company for anyone considering a performance engine.

Great service and a beautiful engine. I have some time before I install it but my experience with Engine Factory has been stellar so far. You can tell the business is family-owned and they take a lot pf pride in their work.
Hi Bruce – Matt,
The engine that Engine Factory built for me is still on the shipping pallet.
I start it all the time just love the sound it is better than watching TV.
The engine starts easy and runs great.
Brad did an excellent job.
The cam in this engine is really nice.
The racy idle is exactly what I wanted.
Thank you for a quality Engine Factory product and the really good info on your website.
Dear Engine Factory Team,
My 350 Chevy engine was all that I could ask for and more. It looks great. It runs great and it sounds even better. You did a fantastic job. I can hardly wait for spring.
Once again, thanks,
Finished assembly and testing today everything turned out 100%. Please understand your engine Tests quiet because the EPA & OSHA now makes us vent the exhaust sound out 30 feet away from the engine >>> Thanks Big Government. Click on the blue link below it is a short video clip of your engine running. After you install a nice set of Headers and Flow Master Mufflers Your engine will sound Awesome!!!!!

7 years ago me and a couple of other friends bought our engines from them. My engine in particular was a 347 stroker with 425 hp that went into an FFR Roadster MK3. Car weighed barely 2,300 lbs.! It had Edelbrock carb but ran smooth like it had an EFI setup. Today the engine starts up just like I did the first time… I’m going to do a GT40 replica project soon and looks like someone’s phone will be ringing again soon..
Thanks Engine Factory for Building an Awesome LS3 / 610 horsepower Engine
