STEP THREE:  Engine – Custom Build or Factory Originals…



The life force of your dream ride is going to come from a good powerful engine. There was a time you could go to the scrap yard and pick yourself up a used engine for very little but those days are long gone.

Even if you can get your hands on a decent used engine for your particular ride, the rebuild and work involved will bump up the price. This is why a lot of people turn to factory originals to get their cars running smoothly.

Crate engines come in many different guises. You have a ton of choice, when it comes to size, horse power and set up. It all comes down to what you require.

The best thing to do once you are at the engine buying stage is to get in touch with a supplier (Palm Beach Customs can help you here too) and discuss the plans for your car, what you will be using it for and what you want from it. The supplier will be able to advise you what would be the best fit.
