There's only 2 places to go for PROVEN, reliable, "crate" race engines designed to go hundreds of passes before frenshening....

Sunset Racecraft http://www.sunsetracecraft.com/

or

Reher Morrison http://www.rehermorrison.com/

That said, it appears you already purchased a SSRE 565:confused:

Hi Guys,
New to this site, but not to forums in general.

I'm part way through building my first true drag car, a VT holden commodore with half chassis, 4 link, competition cage, soon to recieve a 565 Shafiroff-built BBC, hope to have it smoking out the neighbours Xmas this year.
You have a good looking site here, look forward to speaking crap with you all.
Cheers,
Nick

Check out Mardo's matte black capri if you want to see SSRE bits in motion. Actually there are a few other SSRE combos running around here now in the Aus pro street scene, and some are stepping up to new SSRE combos.

I have one of Shafiroff's 555's. Ran it for three years, just now have to freshen it. Ran 7.50's at 178 in my dragster on alky.

everything seems to be a upgrade at top doller with shafiroff.they give you cheap cranks/rods/rockers with most combos and when you want to upgrade to good stuff they charge the full price of the part without taking the money back off for the part that the motor comes with.

There are several good ones out there. I dont have any experiance with Shafiroff, but I have a Sunset Racecraft 12 degree 582 that is simply amazing. The customer support is worth it alone. IMO Call them up and ask for Jamin or Tracy, you wont be dissapointed!

It might seem a bit backwards asking after buying, all said and done though, I was impressed by the Shafiroff Engine Package, Vinny was good to talk to about it and I guess I'll have to wait and see how it goes. Like most of you I build and race out of my own pocket, so reliability is a big concern. Time will tell.

I have heard both good and bad stories from shafiroff. Most were good. Wasnt there a posting on here a while back about some guy who destroyed one of their engines on a dyno and claimed they wouldnt make good for it? Seems alot of guys use their engines with success.

I have had Sunset motors before and I currently have one now as well and as stated before in this thread they are badass! I would not personally purchase a Shaffiroff motor but I have seen many of them go rounds.

Nice. Maybe I'll call him and spec out a bad ass nitrous motor. I hear he knows all the tricks. He is real stealth about it...
