514 Crate engine for sale.

This 514 is a unique design that uses 100% American made parts. The engine is designed to be a durable, low compression, low rpm torque monster. Perfect for towing, 4x4, off road, customs, and hot rods.

Compare this engine to any other 460 based crate engine available. You will not find a dyno tested and proven stroker for less. We are making more torque at a lower RPM than anything available, running on regular unleaded gasoline.

For a hotrod, the power produced by this engine will propel a 3500 pound car into the 11's, or a 2500 pound car into the 10's.

For a tow rig, this engine produces more torque than a diesel with a power band of off idle to 5000rpm. Forget about that new Powerstroke, install this engine in a classic Ford and haul your race car in style.

As you can see in the photos, this engine was dyno'd with a setup typical to what I would expect to actually see in a vehicle. 750cfm carb, 1" open spacer, Crane XRi points conversion ignition, 1-3/4" Dynomax truck headers, 3" exhaust, 3" Hooker Aerochamber mufflers, and the water pump running off of factory pulleys.

We had one pull that showed 581 lb/ft at 2900 rpm, but we didn't print it. I suspect peak torque is greater, at a lower rpm. The idle has a slight lope with more than enough vacuum to operate power brakes. We measured 12.5 inches at our elevation of 6000ft, which means vacuum should be greater than 14 inches at sea level. We probably could have also gotten more top end power from the engine if we had a carb capable of leaning out the top end, but I feel these figures demonstrate a typical setup that will be seen on the street.
