    Turnkey engines

    Hi all ,

    I am looking for good turnkey engine providers (maybe some off you have done business with).
    Offcourse, ford engine , more torque and hp then normal engines from back then.

    Reason why i want a turnkey is because i am not an engine builder and want an engine which does what the company says...
    Had a rebuild done before by a company(my country),spend allot of money, engine was ****!
    So that is the reason why i am asking your opinion, don't want to lose money again on an engine full of promises...

    Doing most things myself but engine building is probably for another time,another project....

    Thanks!

    I don't know how much shipping to Belgium would be but I would check out Summit Racing, JEGS, or any one of the parts selling companies for a budget conscious crate engine.

    I got a 302 long block engine from ATK last year for my great nephew's 1967 Cougar. Very happy with the results.

    I know this thread is older but, I've heard good things about blueprint engines. I believe Hot Rod is sponsored by them and Roadkill Garage runs a lot of their engines with good results.

    Re: Turnkey engines

    I purchased a 347 from them about 2 1/2 yrs. ago for my 67 XR7. I had read some older posts which commented on questionable service but most of the new posts had been positive. I had an issue with some sound coming from the engine about 1000 miles after install. They were very accommodating on the phone, sent out replacement parts, talked with my mechanic, and paid for the shipping of the engine to there facility. They determined that the #1 piston had some scuffing starting (which we could see after removing the engine and pan) and rebuilt the entire engine. They offered to replace it with brand new as well. Then they paid to ship it back. The only hiccup in the transaction was them only wanting to pay for a portion of the labor to remove and replace. They did pay for the whole diagnostic labor and parts purchased on my end. We came to an agreement about the portion paid for the other work that was satisfactory.

    Hi guys,

    Late response from me.
    I chose Prestigemotorsports for my Engine.
    Costs a bit more then most companies but their service is amazing,always there to help you by phone or mail.
    They just finished and dyno tested my engine so pretty soon they will ship it.

    Don't know if any off you worked with them but so far i can highly recommend them.

    Thanks for the tips!
