We pride ourselves on our engine design and construction. We try very hard to ensure that we build each engine to suit the application and customer requirements with which we are presented. This may vary immensley and range from 3.5 litre classic rebuilds to class winning race engines of up to 5.3 litres. As this is such a wide field of choice and because it is not easy to match an engine to each requirement we try not to offer 'standard' builds at 'standard' costs. It is more sensible that we show the available options and give an idea of the component costs, if you need a quote for something modified or simply not shown on this site, please contact us.

Short Engines

Short engines comprise a cylinder block, crankshaft, connecting rods and pistons. The parts are assembled and ready to use. Short engines are available in a number of forms with options including capacity (3.5 to 5.3 and just about anything in between), materials (cast or forged components), balance (we supply very few unbalanced engines but if they are desired we can accomodate), compression ratio (normally determined by the intended usage), liner design (again, the vast majority are 'top hat' liners now), cross bolting (late type engines all com with 4 bolt main caps) and journal size (the diameter of the main and big end journal on the crank and block). Prices range from £500 to £10,000 depending on the build and will require an exchange engine of some sort in most cases, although outright purchases are considered.

Long Engines

The long engine, at least according to us, is defined as a short engine with the addition of cylinder heads, head gaskets and a camshaft kit. The engine will come assembled and ready to accept the parts required to complete the build.
