    Well some of you know I bought a Year One 355 crate engine. I would like to do a little review on them since they are very well priced ($2989).
    Well to start off this engine is a Vortec Iron headed small block on a 1 piece seal block. The engine contains a roller camshaft and a airgap style intake and is actually dynoed for you.

    I will post pics once it starts to warm up but for starters...

    Looking over the dyno sheet. This enigne produced 425hp @5800 , 440.9 ftlb torque @3900.
    Pretty strong street motor...

    I gotta stop reading these Crate threads or pretty soon I'll be yanking my engine for one of these puppies. That's a sick amount of powerband for the $$$ :screwup:
