    Crate engine purchase help please.

    Looking to purchase a big block Chevy crate engine for my 66 Nova drag car with powerglide and four link. This is a big $ investment for me and do not want to pick the wrong engine builder. Your opinions please. Thanks, Mike

    Nyes is good. Also check out the ads Murray has posted for kits and completely assembly. I know the guy that does the complete motors and it is excellent work ( or he would not be building mine). If you want to spend more, then Sunset out of Texas or Nesbitt out of N. Carolina are good builders to turn to.
