    Yeah, I was digging through my email bucket and found an old email from Year One telling me about their new crate engine:

    This is an awsome deal! :bow: The offer expired but the engine is still that same price of $2990 acording to the Year One website. I think this engine spanks all the GMPP small blocks in bang for the buck. If or when I get a crate engine I will definately keep this one in mind.

    Not bad. Those numbers are more in the realm of a mildly built 383 or 400.

    Man look at the torque! I bet that it doesn't even go below 400!

    Do You Need Some Serious New Power For Your Favorite Muscle Car?

    [​IMG]


    The YearOne Power Crate 350 has the power you need for the car you love.
    The four-bolt main seasoned 350 block has been bored 0.030 over. It uses a nodular iron crankshaft with hypereutectic pistons connected with powdered metal connecting rods.
    A dual plane aluminum intake allows good idle quality and excellent street driveability while providing plenty of low-end torque. Ported Vortec cylinder heads, 1.6:1 ratio rocker arms and a hydraulic roller camshaft round out this excellent engine.
    The fully balanced and blueprinted PowerCrate 350 has been dyno tested to produce 400-plus horsepower* and 400-plus ft./lbs. of torque* with a pump-gas friendly 9.5:1 compression ratio. The engine comes with a 12-month/12,000 mile warranty.


    $2990.00
    NO CORE EXCHANGE







    Part# CT350PC1

    Check the graph...it starts at 3000 rpm. I want to see what it does at 2000 rpm. For a truck 2000-3500 rpm is the range that is important IMO. The amount of time spent above 3500 rpm is almost negligible.

    Still appears to be a decent engine at a reasonable price though.

    I like the "seasoned" block approach . Used blocks rock after the whole heating and cooling process that happens day in and day out .

    "Seasoned" = used
    "Patina"= rust
    "Classic"= dated and overpriced





























    It's the automotive version of "Real Estate speak"

    Nothing wrong with used , as long as they checked for excessive core shift , etc .

    We used to prefer used blocks , from high mileage wrecks . We at least knew it went xxxx amount of miles , and had been heated and cooled . and would probably hold up after a freshening .

    X2, Looks like a great engine, the only thing I'd change is the cam. 218/228 @ 050 is a little too much overlap for low rpm wheeling, IMO.

    Swap in some 5.38 gears and you find that powerband acceptable.
