461ci 400Hp BBC Marine Crate Engine

Marine Crate Motors are new direct replacement units for your needs. Built for a marine or street application where long term reliable power and performance is needed. Blocks are prepared on our state of art Centroid 4-axis CNC machining center that corrects all block dimensions to blue print perfect. Each engine is dyno tested and tuned, not some guess work on power. Some engine builders just re-manufacture everything possible, we do not.
