Nothing Beats Testimonials .... read these glowing reports from Engine Factory customers....

I did a long research with different crate engine companies. The Engine Factory, Matt and Bruce, is absolutely amazing. They built  the engine for my needs, I am towing my Harley once in a while. Also when you have questions, they will have an answer for you! Get the matching March serpentine system also, it not only looks great but works even better. The engine is hot tested and runs right out of the box. Everybody who has seen it so far is just wowed. I wanted a daily driver I can depend on and that is what I got. This was one of the best decisions I made on the truck! Good luck, give them a call you will not regret it.  Gunther

     Tom Medley, creator of the "Stroker McGurk" cartoon character that appeared in Hot Rod magazine in the 1950s, once joked he would have liked to own a flamed '40 Coupe.

MSD Ignition has led the automotive world in performance ignitions for over 40 years and now we are rewriting another industry standard. Introducing Atomic EFI a throttle body kit designed to update engines using outdated carburetors with all of the modern benefits of a fuel injection system.

Atomic EFI was designed for the average car guy, like you. Installation is easy and replaces a 4-barrel carb with just basic tools. Also, instead of having countless sensors, we incorporated the TPS, MAP, IAT, and more right in the throttle body so that you don't have to worry about installing them. Atomic EFI  features a returnless fuel system, which means you can keep your existing fuel tank pickup and never have to modify the gas tank. Atomic EFI  will be available for purchase in 2012.
