Racing Engines

When it comes to racing engines it is a scary ordeal to call someone you do not know, talk a little, then he wants you to pull the trigger to purchase, salesman will say exactly what you want to hear! Bill Cannon the owner is the only sales person you talk to because they make sure the engine has got the entire combination needed to do exactly what you purchased for and make the power it is supposed to. A professional engine builder should ask what the engines purpose is for, weight, transmission, gear and if a power adder will be used. Very simple questions should be asked first then engine sale may happen.


We understand this and that is why AwesomeEngines® takes a lot of time with the customer to explain in detail what your purchased engine will need to compliment it and allow it to run the “number”. Bill is a professional and the only one you will talk to when you looking to purchase and engine. With 50+ years and still wants to make sure his product keeps getting better with new technology and advancements happening every year.


AwesomeEngines® machine shop and equipment needed to do it right is as good as any and better than most in the world for building race engines. With one of the better if not best B4250 4 axis Centroid CNC machining center that provides perfect placement of every blueprint position of the block to within .0002″. Bore centers are dead on and perfectly bored on 45 degree bank angles for perfect ring seal and the deck height is always square.


We probe every block to make sure it is a good block and will machine perfectly. We have had blocks so bad we sent them back when we found bore centers of 4.840 were  as far off as .060″. We purchased five high end blocks from one company when checked the already bore  for 4.600 final bored were low on the Y axis and up to .060″ off on the X axis bore centers. This makes piston to valve a mess and also one side of the bore is thicker. When sold to a customer that has no way of  knowing is wrong. Most engine assemblers do not check bore center placement because they do not know. Bore centers and bore angles are the most important placements that are critical for endurance and ring seal. Every AwesomeEngines block probed by Bill because he know way to do it but dead on.
Before you buy your next engine, ask the seller if he has a 4 Axis CNC BED MILL block machining center? If he does not your getting 2nd rate engine because the ability they cannot. If not, is the same with a dyno, if he does not have one he can’t qualify the engine or even know it will live. There are good engine builders capable of doing good quality CNC block work, just make sure they really have one and it is really dyno tested and tuned before you buy it.
