Re: crate engine ???

Are you talking about getting a long or short block?

Re: crate engine ???

what kind of crate motor? a super six 4.2L? a 281? 351? 302? it all depends on what kinds of motor you chose.. if u chose a v8 then u might need to change a lot of things.. wiring harness--> rear end 8.8. k member etc etc...
