I am not a fan of crate motors as you no longer have a number matching build after it is installed and the quality has not always been the best. After building many engines myself over 40 years I have seen many short cuts that were taken with crate motors. If you are looking for a quick fix and do not care about a number matching restore then it works for some.

If you have the money, awsome. Make sure you break it in correctly and add zink.
