Several valve cover options pictured below. All engine are painted black. The engine below has aluminum roller rockers. We prefer to use the stainless version, due to there exceptional durability. The Hurricane or Typhoon intake, your choice, small head stainless bolt kit included. The Typhoon is very much like the Edelbrock RPM Performer. It's slightly lower for those with low hood clearance. Both of the intakes mentioned above are most likely to tall for the C-3 Corvettes with stock hoods. Pro Products offers a near stock height intake, (Cyclone), but the performance will suffer somewhat. The Typhoon has a better low end throttle response and seems to move the torque range down a bit, but sacrifices about 10hp off the top. This intake is desirable in heavy vehicles or those willing to sacrifice a little off the top, for a better response off the line, or need more hood clearance. NOTE: THESE ENGINES REQUIRE USE OF ELECTRIC FUEL PUMP, THEY HAVE NO FUEL PUMP ROD BORE OR PROVISIONS FOR USE OF A MECHANICAL FUEL PUMP. The ribbed aluminum oil pan is included, and is not installed.

We would consider the reliability to be very high on this engine. Our testing has more than proven that this engine to be very durable under aggressive driving conditions, not to mention that the Gen Two GM short block built and assembled by GM is one of their most dependable ever built. We have sold many of these in the past, and have had zero failures. You must use an engine oil that has a high level zinc compound in it. There are many such oils on the market, namely most diesel engine oils. If you want to run your favorite engine oil, then you can purchase the zinc oil additive. All engines running flat tappet camshafts must use oils with this additive in them. Premature camshaft wear is inevitable if the oil your using does not have high levels of this additive. Cam break in procedures must also be followed during initial startup on this engine. It is very rare to ever have camshaft problems if the above information is adhered to, but it is very likely you will have problems if this is not the case. The zinc additive must be used at all times, or an oil that has high levels of this compound in it. Listed below are items NOT INCLUDED NO CARB, NO DISTRIBUTOR, NO WIRE LOOMS, NO HEADERS, NO SPARK PLUGS OR WIRES, NO PULLEYS OR WATER PUMP, NO BRACKETS, NO WATER NECK, NO AIR CLEANER, NO VALVE COVER BREATHERS We are willing to bet you will never find it, especially a completely brand new engine with nothing rebuilt or remanufactured. Durability will not be a problem, as this engine uses hydr. flat tappet cam, and only has 9.7:1 compression ratio. You can drive it from NY to LA if desired. It's very smooth on the highway. Engine temp is extremely low when cruising, around 165 at night and never exceeds 190 in the day time traffic. Any block that is at standard bore will run cooler than a 30 over and much cooler than a 40 to 60 over. Only in the coolest of climates will a bored block run as cool as a standard and winter time is just not the optimal time for most street rodders. The full roller rockers we use are the strongest on the market. The pistons are hypereutectic, with LT style pm rods, nodular crankshaft. This is the best short block we could have chosen for our Stage One 418hp 350 complete engine. The testing has been very extensive, and somewhat abusive. We are going to run a nitrous setup on the engine next week. Our main goal is to accelerate the engines life span, as well as the car. We will go up to 150hp shot on the nos, and do this repeatablely. If the engine holds up to this total hp of 568 hp, for at least 15 runs, then this is going to be sure proof of it's ability to handle the 418hp from now on. Actually the 6000 rpm range we are taking the engine up to on every run, is more demanding on the engines internals, than anything else we could do. The many hard launches at the track (we are running ET Streets on the car) is also somewhat demanding of the engines crankshaft. Skip claims that if the engine blew up today, we are pretty sure that we have ran the engine as hard as most street rodders would have in a life time, but it's still running as well as the day we first dynoed it. The engine you receive will be identical to what's in Skip’s car, and 100% brand new from top to bottom. Nothing remanufactured, rebuilt, or reconditioned. Just perfectly brand new! The heads used are the 23 degree design, Procomps newest series. Intake runner volume is 210cc, chamber volume is 58cc THESE ENGINES CAN BE ASSEMBLED USING STRAIGHT OR ANGLE PLUG HEADS, YOUR CHOICE. These heads have an extra thick deck, hardened intake and exhaust seats with manganese bronze valve guides. Give us a call at 423-722-5152 or 877-383-5152 should you have and application issue. We can most likely answer any question you have.
