This crate engine delivers reliable power all the way up to 6000 RPM. Of course, this engine has the nasty stroker sound at idle, which is sure to turn heads at every stop light.
The Eagle Specialties crank, and forged piston rods ensure this engine will stand up at the track, drag strip, or on the street. The Comp Cams hydraulic roller camshaft and roller rockers keep things running smooth, with minimal rocker adjustments needed.
