"Venom" 385 HP
(Stage 3)

CAD $12,495

This Ford 331 is one of our best selling Ford performance packages. Stroker engines are known for great bottom end power, and the Venom is no exception! 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.

Have you always wanted to have big power in a small package? The Venom might just be the crate engine for you.
