Tips to Buying Chevy Engines- Performance, Style and Value

Crate engines can extend the life and the value of your car. Some older cars and trucks, including Chevyís are made to last. What this means is that even if the engine is shot, the rest of the truck is in great shape. With Chevy crate performance engines, you can add value and life to your old Chevy truck.

Essentially, a crate engine is an engine in a crate. It is a new and completely built engine that comes in a box delivered to you. Crate engines are usually a lot cheaper than rebuilding an engine by yourself and also can save you a lot of time and frustration, especially when you are trying to revamp your old Chevy.

Below we have outlined three important tips when it comes to choosing and buying a Chevy crate engine.

What do You Want?

First of all, you need to ask yourself the basic question of what are you looking for. Most Chevy owners are looking for a more powerful engine, more towing capacity, and more torque which is often what a Chevy engines performance will bring. Look at the different models and horsepower offered and ask an expert for help choosing what the right engine for your desires are.

Buy Smart

Check online and offline vendors for the various discounts and deals. When factoring in the price, you will need to consider the cost of the crate as well as the cost of shipping. It might be cheaper to buy locally and pick it up yourself. Furthermore, see if the vendor offers trade in discount for your old engine. Most crate engines will start at around $1,500 to $2,000 but this will vary depending on the model and make you want.

Warranty Worries

Finally, make sure you pay particular attention to the make and model of your Chevy Crate Engine performance. If you goof up on the model, then the warranty will become invalid. Although in most instances the installation and the crate engine will run smoothly, itís always good to have a back up three year (or in some instances, lifetime) warranty just in case.

Other engines Chevy offers are Chevy Racing engines, Chevy Stroker engine, Chevy 350 Engine and Chevy Corvette Engine to mention a few.
