Default 1 800 Runsnew 496 motors

Has anybody heard anything bad about these motors. I talked to them they said these motors have only been out for a little less then a year. I know that these motors are 454 bored .060 and stroked.

Are you asking when the 496 mag and HO came out or how long this company has been producing motors?

I know some people that have used their motors and had great luck. There was a guy on OSO that got their motors and had very bad luck with them and then HORIBLE warrantee issues. He took them to court and won. I think his motor is for sale in the classifieds now...

I have friend with a 38 Special. He bought two stock 502 and used his induction and exhuast on them. He has had trouble free boating this summer so far! Excelent price. Huge inventory.

I have been talking to these guys as well. They claim that their complete 460 hp actually produces up to 490. They claim that their engine will hook right up to the velvet BW drives I have in this COBALT. Their prices seem too good to be true. I could have 2 new engines and rebuilt drive around $22k?? That seems a liittle cheap..... but I'll go with it!

Craney, let me know mhow you do with these guys....I might be following your lead.

I've bought several motors from them over the years. Never a problem, fast delivery.

If it's too good to be true , it usually is.
