What You Should Know Before You Buy A Crate Engine

1 comment

Not all crate engines are created equally. From the price to the components used in their assembly, the buying process can be difficult if you’re not sure what to look for.  

At BluePrint Engines, we believe that you should consider the following before you spend your time and treasure on a crate engine for your ride.

Know Your Budget

When it comes to a project, it’s important to know what you’re willing to spend. Take some time and think about your overall budget and break that down further. How much are you willing to pay for just the engine? Other parts? What about labor if you can’t do everything yourself? Have a set price in mind with a little wiggle room just in case.

Know the Warranty

Be sure to know your warranty inside and out. At BluePrint Engines, we give our engines the industry's best-in-class warranty for 30 months or 50,000 miles. Our warranty applies to individual or professional installations, is fully transferable, and is covers engines worldwide.

Know if it’s Dyno Tested

How do you know if the engine makes the horsepower and torque that was advertised? Even though there is a warranty, the stress and heartache of having a problem after the fact are the worst. Dyno testing is one more way to ensure our customers get the quality product they deserve.

Know that the experts at BluePrint Engines are happy to help you choose the right engine. Give us a call at 1-800-483-4263 and we’ll be happy to answer all of your technical questions.
