“I bought my Chevy 383 stroker crate engine from West Coast Engines and I could not be happier with my decision. It is the perfect setup for my 56 Chevy truck.

WHAT IS A CRATE ENGINE?
In the simplest terms, a crate engine is a full and complete engine that is delivered directly to you – on a crate. The objective of a crate engine is to make upgrading as simple as possible by providing a turnkey solution that removes the difficulty of building or rebuilding an engine.
Some aftermarket crate engines will include the block, rotating assembly and heads; while other builders will also include a camshaft, intake and carburetor to make the install even more efficient.
Buying a crate engine built by a professional with integrity can be highly beneficial. When your original engine has failed, crate engines are the quickest way to give your vehicle a new lease on life.
