Hi-Tech 400 H.P. 351W Crate Engines Now Available From Year One


BRASELTON, Ga., March 18 -- Working in conjunction with Hi-Tech Engine Components, Year One, Inc. has developed a new 400 horsepower 351W crate engine for Ford applications.

These engines feature new high performance aluminum heads with 2.02 and 1.60 stainless steel valves, dual plane aluminum intake manifolds and new high quality, dual bolt pattern harmonic balancers. Designed to run on pump gas, each engine includes a high lift, short duration hydraulic roller cam and lifters for a combination of crisp low speed throttle response and incredibly strong higher RPM horsepower.

Two things really set these engines apart from the other small block Ford crate engines on the market. First is the fact that these engines produce over 12 inches of vacuum at 800 RPM. This makes them ideal for customers that are utilizing power brakes and other power accessories. No other small block Ford crate engine that we know of produces so much low speed vacuum, along with so much horsepower!

The second thing that sets them apart is the price. "With a retail price of just $4,290.00, these engines offer a tremendous value. Comparable horsepower small block Ford crate engines often sell for thousands of dollars more."

Each of these engines is individually hot dyno tested and the dyno sheets are included inside of each shipping container. Since these are crate engines, no core charge is required. Each engine is also balanced and blueprinted and they come with a 12 month/12,000 mile warranty.
