“West Coast Engines takes care of me on all my engines. Highly recommend these guys.”

Darren McFadden

“Thank You for suppling me with the 383 Stroker stage 3 engine for my 1968 Chevy Camaro Z/28. This unit was installed and detailed to finish out the classic look & style of this era but with modern day power !  This car is articled in the July 2012 issue of Chevy High Performance Magazine, “In from the Cold” pages 52 – 56. I hope to use your engines in my future projects.”

Frank D’Aquanno

“I just want to let others know how well you treat your customers and go the extra mile to get things right. I ordered the new Stage 3Small Block Chevy 383 Engine and it arrived on time as promised. I also checked out West Coast Engines by calling a few shops before my purchase, and I did not hear on bad comment, in fact they were all positive. What I also liked is how I got to choose a few other parts like valve covers, oil pan and a brand new GM block, compression ratio and so on. Service after the sale so far has been also excellent, and nearly 500 horses with a nationwide warranty is hard to beat… thank you!!”

“I called around to a dozen engine builders before making a purchase at West Coast Engines. These guys were first class from start-to-finish and Brady was so easy to work with. He is the main guy for 383’s there and make sure you work with him. I get overwhelming amounts of compliments wherever I go!! Glad I was talked into the stage 5. I’m SO HAPPY WITH IT!! I’ve got 9,000 miles on it, runs like a champ, and those ricers don’t mess with me anymore haha! Thanks guys!!”
Kelly Bork


“Tom & Brady at West Coast give us a superior product that’s easy to work with. Their engines are reliable and customer service is the heart of their business. They turn a complex job into a ‘one stop shop’ and it helps our business tremendously.”

Ben Marauder Motorsports

“This engine has so much more performance and fuel economy it’s unbelieable. Brady was 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

“I cannot say enough good things about Brady and West Coast Engines! I ordered a Stage 5 383 stroker from him and they DID NOT DISAPPOINT! Throughout the entire build process I was kept up to date with phone calls and emails. Even after the delivery I received a follow up phone call to make sure everything was going smoothly. This motor is a fire breathing dragon and moves my big girl around with easy and then some! If you are looking for a 383 stroker engine, do yourself a favor and give Brady a call…you’ll thank me for it later!”
Joel Frank

“I bought my stage 5 engine from West Coast Engines and I could not be happier with my decision. It is the perfect setup for my 56 Chevy truck. After weeks of research and several conversations with Brady, I determined that he was the most informed and knowledgeable person that I spoke to in my search for the right powertrain for my truck. I recommend anyone who is building a car or truck that wants the peace of mind that goes with having a full warranty on a bad ass engine, to call the guys at West Coast Engines you will not be disappointed!”

“I would like to thank the guys at West Coast Engines. I purchased a 406 small block chevy and I am elated. Tom was excellent. His customer service skills were impeccable. The complete buying experience was a pleasure. The transaction was smooth and all my questions were answered. The motor was built and on the way back to me in no time. Brady delivered the motor on time as promised, and I have nothing but praise for the whole West Coast Engines team. Keep up the good work and if I ever need another motor, West Coast Engines is my only choice.”

Rodney Rushing

“West coast engines has an excellent reliable product. I have personally bought a couple engines from them and had great customer service. Definitely a reliable engine builder and will continue to use them for all my engine needs. Thanks guys have a great 2014.”

West Coast Engines 383 Stroker in a 1978 Corvette

Posted by Robert ‘Hop’ Hopper on Thursday, May 19, 2016

“Purchased a re-manufactured Chevy 5.3 for my 2003 Tahoe. I had never done an engine swap before and they helped me figure out exactly which engine I would need as well as walked me through the other stuff I might need for my swap. The engine was shipped out quickly and arrived looking great. Included was all the paperwork to ensure that the install went smoothly and a checklist to help easily keep track of what was needed to ensure that the warranty was going to be valid. Brady answered all my (endless) questions and helped ensure everything went smoothly and that I was able to walk away with a great engine with an awesome warranty.

Overall a great experience and if I need to buy another engine I will definitely be coming back.”

Josh Mather

“I previously purchased a motor from brady back in 2011. I thought then it was the best motor I purchased! So much that im definitely working with West Coast Engines again on a much bigger project!! I am definitely looking forward to what our future motor together will do!! 400hp here we go!!”

Steve Johnston

“Every step of the way went just as promised. I got the 450HP 383 stroker and it is one strong motor. I am impressed. Next stop the body shop for my 65′ Chevelle 4spd and then I will share pictures. Thanks Guys! Job well done.”

Mike Lanes


“These guys did a top notch job on my 66 mustang engine, it runs like a champ and the service was excellent from start to finish. They answered all questions promptly and was there when needed. Two thumbs up on my 260HP Ford Engine LOVE it!”
