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.

Keith Hall 383 /450HP


Hi Matt & Bruce,

Well it is finally completed. If anyone out there is thinking of purchasing a engine look no further then the Engine Factory!! The engine was flawless as well as a heck of a looker. Working with Matt and Bruce was a pleasure, Matt walked me through the selection along with the process of putting the engine together. Bruce kept me up to date with photo’s of the engine from start to finish. This 383 Stroker with the 450 HP definitely puts the stock 190 HP to shame. Although this 1973 Corvette Stingray has a 3.08 rear-end (helps with gas mileage on weekend cruises) it will still lay down the rubber. The first time the wife drove it she took off from a stop and looked down at the speedometer and was doing 70 in nothing flat. Awesome!! Again it was a total pleasure working with both of you and yes I would do it again in a heartbeat, and will when we move on to another rod! Attached are some photos of the car.

Thanks again Matt & 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!

Todd Hallsten

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.

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.

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.

Photo attached.

Kind Regards,

I bought my 383 engine 3 years ago and it has been one of the best engines I have ever run. I had a small problem with the motor which was sent to me and I notified Matt of my concerns. Matt allowed me to keep the engine in my Nova to finish the remainder of the car shows that I was scheduled to be in, and then had the engine picked up and took care of the problem without hesitation! These guys truly stand behind their products. My next project will surely have an Engine Factory engine as well. Feel free to e-mail me if you have any questions

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!

They build beautiful outstanding engines! This is my second one. Brad built them both. The first one was in ’09. Their experience and quality is what keeps bringing me back. Matt made sure everything was exactly what I wanted…right down to my silly bolt requests. Everyone over there is great to work with as well.
Thanks again guys…Matt, Brad, and Bruce!

Hi Matt,

After receiving my 430HP 350 Chev Cobra engine from your factory to New Zealand, I would like to thank and complement you and your team for the very professional job you have done on my engine. The engine arrived without a mark on it.

I am delighted with the attention to detail on the finish of the engine and your total commitment to my order details and accommodation of my late change of belt system change.

A very hansom engine admired by all who get to see it.

Thank you & kind regards,

Hi Bruce, Chris, Rob, etc.-

I couldn’t be happier with this engine- starts and runs great, haven’t had to do a thing except adjust the idle to my liking. Along with the upgraded new suspension and steering the car drives almost like one of Cobra’s vintage Shelby racers. Well, not quite! I’ve only been able to put about 500 miles on it, the biggest problem is not being able to open it up yet! I took it to the Mustang Car Club of New England Fall show and got a first place in the 65-66 ‘stock’ class, and was helped by the great looking engine and freshly detailed engine compartment.

To the right is a picture of the engine installed!

Thanks for your service and a great engine build.

Hi Everyone,

I just wanted to write and say that even though I took delivery of my 347 stroker engine almost 6 months ago, I finally got my Factory Five ’33 Hot Rod assembled to the point that I got to start the engine for the first time
yesterday! It started right up and runs great!! We took the car on a little “go kart” ride also and the engine just purred.

Thank you so much for your help with my car. I called a couple of times to get some advice and your staff always was able to answer my questions and get me the information I needed to continue with the car build. Your
customer service is excellent.

Thanks again.

Well we finally put the engine in and it is running great. I would like to thank you and your team for doing such a great job on my sons and my 68 Camaro. The engine was far past both of our expectations. You and your team truly lived up to your reputation and I would highly recommend you to everyone. We took it to our first show in New Smyrna and it was a head turner.

Thanks again for doing such a great job and we will enjoy it for many years to come.

I hope you and everyone there at FFR & the Engine Factory are keeping well.

Just a brief note to say a big thanks to you (and the teams behind the scenes) for your help over the past 14 months… following our visit (my son & I) back in September 2015, today I received notification that my Type 65 Coupe (#F5R1000708CPB) is fully road legal here in the UK.

We first started the build on 16th March 2016 – Right Hand Drive / Complete kit / Independent rear suspension / 6.7ltr Ford 418w from The Engine Factory.

Drives & sounds amazing!!! First show booked for July ;0)

Thanks again everyone!

Gunther Maier Engine Factory Testimonial

From: Gunther Maier []

I did a long research with different crate engine companies. The Engine Factory, Matt and Bruce, is absolutely amazing.

They built the engine for my needs, I am towing my Harley once in a while. Also when you have questions, they will have an answer for you!

Get the matching March serpentine system also, it not only looks great but works even better. The engine is hot tested and runs right out of the box. Everybody who has seen it so far is just wowed. I wanted a daily driver I can depend on and that is what I got.

This was one of the best decisions I made on the truck!

Good luck, give them a call you will not regret it.
