Year One Small-Block Chevy Crate Engine 383 Cubic Inch

Year One has started their own line of crate engines, here's one of them.

 Year one is a major supplier of reproduction and aftermarket parts for our precious GM cars and trucks. For some models, you can build a car from the ground up only using items from Year One. With this in mind, Year One has introduced a line of crate engines.

They range from 300- 500 horsepower.

The one I really like is the Tork 383. It's a 430 horsepower/ 460 ft-lb of toque 383 that sells for only $4,689. The great thing about this engine is it's nothing too fancy or finicky, but makes reliable solid power, gets decent gas mileage, and even comes with a 12-month 12,000-mile warranty.

Here are the specs:
