We nicknamed her “The Surf Rider” because she’s an easy-going 350 crate engine with just enough ponies to carve the road and have a little fun. We wanted to keep the price low and the quality high for consumers looking for something simple, reliable, and convenient. 

A quality, custom, American made engine is tough to find these days. Cheap parts from Asia,  manufacturing in Mexico, outdated machining processes, understaffed companies ready to sell you something but take 3 days to call you back when you need help…. why is this? Corporate retail distribution is very expensive so they have to build the engines for cheap and make a big profit. But you also don’t want to make the mistake by buying an engine on eBay, Craigslist, or have your “buddies friend” because who’s going to help you if things go sour? At the end of the day, wouldn’t you rather have all the “profit” go back into your engine to make it better and do business with a solid reputation that ALWAYS answers and returns phone calls? Our customers want to do it right the first time because if you do it right the first time, there’s never a second time.

Can you ship to my house?

Absolutely! We can ship right to your doorstep. The delivery driver will lower the engine from the truck with a liftgate and put it right in your garage with a pallet jack.

I’m not on the West Coast, can I still buy from you?

OF COURSE!  65% of our business is done outside of California.  We can ship our engines direct to your door or to your mechanic in all 49 states.

How long does it take to receive my engine?

To build the engine it takes 2-4 weeks.  When the engine is complete we will call you to make sure that you’re available to receive delivery and to confirm all shipping information.  Once it ships, it takes 2-10 business days!

Do you ship internationally?

We accept international sales but the shipping outside of the USA is handled by the customer.

Can I pick it up?

For insurance purposes these engines must be delivered to you. These are big 500 lbs engines and we want a professional freight company to handle it with care to protect your investment.

How do I order?

Call us at 1-888-957-5454. We are open 9-5pm PST.

Do I have to pay upfront?

We require 50% down to get an order started and collect the remaining balance when the engine is complete and ready to ship.

Do I still get the 5 year warranty if I install it myself?

Absolutely!  After you complete your installation, have a professional mechanic assist you with your warranty paperwork, double-check all your work and sign it off.  It’s always good to protect your investment!

Do I receive any instructions with my engine?

Yes!  We have an engine break-in guide that will go over subjects such as oil filter recommendations, oil recommendations, where the timing needs to be set at, and other important information to help you with installation and maintenance.

In the simplest terms, a crate engine is a full and complete engine that is delivered directly to you – on a crate.  Learn more about crate engines here!

“This engine has so much more performance and fuel economy it’s unbelieable. They were extremely helpful and the engine builder was so knowledgable. Was a great experience and I would do it 100x over! I was referred to West Coast Engines by a mechanic buddy of mine that has been in car racing for 30 years. He’s been doing business with Brady for hot rod engines for years. Anyone that’s interested in performance engines that are street friendly and run on regular gas this is your place.” Gerald Frazier

“Starting researching new motors. Went through all the big guys. Discovered Brady at West Coast Engines… was a little hesitant at first but he proved himself to be a righteous business man. Provided everything he said and service was amazing. Everything came on time. Easy to put in, friend and I did it, backed it up with a 700R4… the engine is amazing, no issues, very smooth, I’m happy, and everyone I know is amazed with it even my mechanic buddies!” Darryll Goodman
