350 ENGINE 440 HP



You think we would name an engine after that crazy city in Los Angeles??  We are much cooler than that my friend.  We named the this engine after the pilot from the movie “Top Gun” played by Whip Hubley.  We nicknamed it “Hollywood” because it’s showy and has all the good stuff like aluminum heads, roller rockers, steel crankshaft… it’s for those who like their cake and want to eat it too, you know?

Let’s talk about the engine!  We have aluminum heads which are a great upgrade from the cast iron Vortec heads because they are lighter, run cooler, and flow better.  A killer lopey sounding Trick-Flow cam that is a hydraulic roller and is part number 31403001. Elgin Industries supplies our self-adjusting steel roller rockers with ARP studs and a COMP Cams valve train.

The bottom-end has a Scat 9000 steel crankshaft rated up to 500 HP, GM forged rods, ARP rod bolts, and a Keith Black pistons with a Hastings rings.

On top of the engine is an Performer RPM Edelbrock intake with a 670 Street Avenger Holley carburetor on top.  Get your fuel injection upgrade with a Holley Sniper EFI system! MSD Street-Fire HEI Distributor with MSD wires with some BOSCH spark plugs.

Every engine is machined, balanced, and blueprinted at our factory to ensure it meets our high standards.  With a Drop-it-in-and-Go package we will hot run or dyno your engine for up to 1 hour with all your equipment installed so we can break-in your engine AND ensure all parts are working up to standard with no leaks or defects.

What are cast irons heads?  Cast iron heads were used for vehicles in the 90’s and older.  They’re outdated and no longer used in vehicles because they’re heavy and they retain heat.  Regardless if you buy your engine from GM or any other builder, cast iron heads run into the same problem with valvetrain reliability.

How do they work?  Heads are like the lungs of your engine, it’s the part that breathes.  Cast iron cylinder heads sit on top of pistons and flow air into the engine.  Aluminum heads are able to do this more efficiently.

Why aluminum heads?  Cast irons heads are weaker under heat causing them to potentially crack over time.  Not only that, but they valvetrain is at risk because cast iron flaws compromise the valvetrain.  Aluminum heads are lighter and allow the engine to run cooler.  They have a stronger design that allows better precision for proper valvetrain alignment.  Essentially, they’re more reliable, more efficient and improve engine performance.

Many people don’t understand the real reason why aluminum heads are a better deal.  Most assume it’s solely for more horsepower, but really what you’re doing is protecting your investment.  In the long run, the cost is a couple hundred bucks higher, but you’ll save money in the end and have piece of mind that you’re engine is performing at its optimal ability.

“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!”
