Typical Crate Engine Case Study

Recently, this bloke brought a mid 70’s Statesman and came to us looking for a whole lot of HP - we are talking a wish list to crack 1000HP at the dyno.

For this setup, we needed to create an engine from scratch with a specific combination of block, go fast bits and machining which resulted in an engine producing 1006HP . When it was done, all that needed to be done was to pick it up, bolt it into the car and drive away - admittedly, traction did become a bit of a challenge.

A mid 70‘s statesman (road registered) with 1006HP with just a normally aspirated carburetor. This is the kind of madness we can help you to create at High Performance World.

Small Block Crate Engines

The starting level of a 383 Chev small block is around the 400HP and we have produced engines up to 700HP (custom build) at this size.

Big Block Crate Engines

Moving into a big block we can produce engines with 1000HP but if you want more sauce, we can tailor your engine build to produce in excess of 1500HP - we can also recommend a good brakes guy.
