What could be better than horsepower in a box? That's essentially what you get when you buy a crate motor - factory-built horsepower that's ready to bolt in to your project vehicle. In the last 10 years, the crate motor market has boomed - stock and high-performance V-8 motors are available from Chevrolet, Ford, and Chrysler, and from many aftermarket companies as well. Most feature factory warranties, a multitude of options, and to-your-door delivery. John Baechtel is an expert on performance engines. In this book, he'll show you what crate motors are available from the major manufacturers; he also covers the accessories you'll need, how to prep and install a crate motor, and how to get it started and properly broken in. It's the ultimate guide to buying a crate motor and getting the most out of it.
