All the crate engines are built with reject parts taken from the production line floor that would not be used in a vehicle that would be sold with the new longer warranties available now.Could you amagin taking the engine back to the delaer if it was installed in a vehicle to get warranty on that after a couple years on the road.
Thats why theres a very limited warranty on crate engines and thats why under the warranty they would determine that abuse and neglect would cause that if the engine failed and the owner would get squat.
They know that the HP level is better then a production vehicle would have and thats how they get rid of reject parts by selling crate HP engines. How is the rest of the engine?? Not that it matters at this point you still need a block.
I had an iron headed crate in here last week with valves that never sealed from day one. And 10k later they needed a valve job and they did not even install the oil shields on the valve springs.
It was a 290HP TBI crate for a PU 95 truck.
