Those are words of ignorance there. Top ten crate motors sold? Well, here you go, and pay close attention to the fact that 7 out of the 10 best are from America, including all of the top 6.



10.) GM 350
The classic. You can build it any way you like, but the basic model is $2,393 and gets you 290 horsepower, $5,682 gets you 330, and $6,656 gets you 350. The aftermarket is unparalleled.

9.) Spoon Sports K20A
Do you want to put way too much power into a little old economy car? Of course you do. Going for a $7K 2.2 liter with 200+ horsepower is more than a little extreme for a street car, but these engines are awesome.

8.) RB26DETT
If you don't think you want a perilously expensive ($17K - $30K) straight-six that can be worked into four-digit horsepower numbers, slap yourself. Then check out Tomei Powered's page of total engine porn.

7.) Hartley V8
God help you finding one of these things now that Hartley appears to be selling of the rights to this horribly difficult-to-engineer engine. The work will be worth it. Hartley managed to find a way to meld two Hayabusa engines together, giving the power of a V8 with the weight of a small four-cylinder. Oh yes, Ariel uses them in the batshit Atom V8.

6.) Cummins 6bt
Diesel hot rods rule. A huge 5.9/6.7 liter, 450 horsepower Cummins is the way to go.

5.) Ford 5.0 Coyote
Ford drops the Boss 302 in a box. Ford Racing just announced the Boss 302 crate engine is now available as a boxed engine. Now wrenchers can finally install the 444 horsepower… Ford's 302 ci DOHC V8 isn't perfect. It's a big engine and particularly tall compared to what comes out of GM, making it difficult to swap into low-hood sports cars like Porsche 944s. On the other hand, the 5.0 Ford motor is strong, powerful (414 hp), and pretty affordable ($6,999). If you want more performance, just pony up the $5K for the Boss version.

4.) Chevy 572
There are lighter, smaller ways to make insane horsepower numbers. None of those ways are 9.4 liter volcanoes of destruction. Big blocks are the shit.

3.) LSX454R
Anyone who knows crate engines knows that GM's LS series is the king right now. You could find yourself an LS7 or an LS9, but we kind of have a hankering for this LSX454R, GM's most powerful crate engine ever. It's $24K, but you get 750 horsepower in a naturally-aspirated motor. The 454R is also still cheaper than a LS9, too.

2.) Ford Sportsman Series
These Windsor-block Ford engines have been the backbone for drag racing for years. They're one of the cheapest "plug and play" options for a car, with 340 horsepower available from $4,000. Its aftermarket is second only to the Chevy 350 and they're bulletproof. Buy one.

1.) eROD LS3
It's a 430 horsepower, $9,375 CARB-compliant 6.2 liter V8. That means you can legally swap it into any street car in all 50 states. If you're the kind of person who sees an old car and dreams of what it'd be like with a V8 under the hood, this is your engine.

I used to have the ignorant attitude, but I got to talking to people and learned some stuff now I've cut that shit out. They're good engines and I for sure wouldn't turn an LS engine down.

LOL. You my friend are either rich, or have nothing better to spend on. My exact words were "not worth it." q_q

I did get what your saying but motor's here are cheaper and you get more bang for your buck. So they are infact worth it. The sounds they make help as well.

See, that is where you take a simple fun discussion, as the "ignorance" statement was in jest, and let it get to you. But, even your "not worth it" statement falls short of fact. The small block Chevy is bar none the cheapest way to HP out there, and the cheapest and most plentiful parts support to boot. And your "fatass GM V8" comment had nothing to do with cost now did it? So, I think we interpreted just fine. I just think that when someone responded to you playing around a bit, you didn't handle it so well. Why so serious man? Lol.

No, I stopped taking it playing around when
"I used to have the ignorant attitude, but I got to talking to people and learned some stuff now I've cut that shit out."
was said....

(And no, my "fatass GM v8" comment had nothing to do with the cost. Neither does the sky being blue, or sh*t smelling bad, or bananas hanging from trees. So what's the point of pointing that out? It's not small.)

Edit: And just saying, "probably not worth it" is an opinion. Opinions =/= facts, and this was "what's your favorite engine" thread not "state facts about parts cost to effect ratio". I'm not saying I'm mad about that, just saying it was my opinion, in an opinion-based thread.

Rich. Hahaha. You can do a LS swap in a s chassis for under 3.5k. And weigh the same. Has more torque and power and better reliability then a st/RB



I usually don't get so aggravated but with all the facts. It's stupid to say. Not worth it


I guarantee my 350tpi will make more power. And torque and be more reliable then a sr. And I'm only spending 2k on the rebuild. S chassis guys pay that for just a swap

That first statement was a little harsh, and not from me. I pointed out the "fatass" comment, because you said we misinterpreted you, that you were only saying that the American V8's weren't worth it based on cost. But to say "fatass GM V8" hints at you not liking them for other reasons. So, I logically pointed it out, made perfect sense to do so. Oh well, you are correct about shit smelling bad, there I agreed with you on something. Can we be friends now?

I see the problem. I am finding good LS's for way too much (>3.5) and RB's for way too little (<3.5).
Which makes me wonder what the heck everyone is looking at, and how I can get there too. @.@

Simple. Stop looking at ls1 pullouts and start looking at 5.3/6.0 vortecs. There less then a grand. Same power as a ls1. And stronger. They have a iron block but its only 50lbs heavier then a all aluminum.

Yeah, so sorry if I took offense to that one comment and took it out a bit on everyone else.

Anyways who even says "fatass v8" in a bad way?! xD

Yes. I was trying to edit it back, leaving a note that you edited the wrong one. Then you edited an admin message as I did, overriding it again. XD

I think I'll just leave it be. Too much work. lol

Taking into account what cougar said, I too have been looking around and reading pros and cons of an LS swap and now I see why it's really popular. Wouldn't mind a cheap LS1/2 swap in an S14a kouki to be fair...
