590 HP Brand New DART SHP Crate motor - carb to pan $7,400
« on: October 30, 2017, 05:11:50 AM »
New Drag or Street Crate Motor
406 Cu in. Dart SHP 590 HP SBC
$7,400 Cdn.


Brand new, professionally built by Brazier Race and Machine, one balanced and blue printed 406 cubic inch Dart SHP SBC carb-to-pan crate engine.  590 HP on mild .609 lift camshaft by Comp Cams makes this an engine suitable for either your Sunday night hot rod or your race car.
This engine has parts all rated for 800+ HP.
Engine, block, rotating assembly, cam and entire valve train, oiling system, is all brand new, and has only been run on the SanDale dyno, printouts attached, which resulted in 590 hp and 534 ft/lbs torque  (Holley 750 carb on 110 race gas). 
Freshly ported/polished aluminum 205/215 cc runners Canfield heads by Brazier. 
This is a complete custom built crate motor with parts combination sourced through Jerry Long of SAG Performance of Angola Indiana who specializes in building high horsepower endurance (such as 12 hours of Sebring etc.) street and race engines.
Crate motors like this directly from SAG typically go for $9,400 to $10,500 US.
The  new DART SHP has 4.155 bore and reliable 3.75 stroke, 4 bolt main, splayed bolt bearing caps and priority oiling system. 
The rotating assembly is high quality, no low end/Chinese SCAT or Eagle components.
 Molnar 4340 forged 3.750 crank with Molnar 4340 H beam rods and Racetech/Autotec 11:5 to 1 forged pistons, finished off with ductile Gapless Total Seal rings.  Custom designed roller camshaft by Comp Cams with Lunati solid bar lifters and Comp Cams Ultra Pro Magnum rockers.  Cylinder heads completely reworked, including new valves etc. by Brazier.
Everything decked, balanced, and assembled by Brazier Race and Machine.
As the Comp cams roller lifter camshaft is very mild (small base 252/260 duration @ .050 LSA+2 .609/.609) this engine is entirely appropriate for street or track use.
Importantly, this DART block engine was intentionally overbuilt for the current horsepower, and for sure you can run this engine for a long time with confidence or upgrade to over 700 horsepower whenever you are ready.
The direct costs on building this motor were $12,289 CDN, which included $4,988 U.S. ($6,740 Cdn) for the short block/rotating assembly/cam/valve train and $4,873 Cdn for the machining, parts, and build by Brazier Race and Auto.  Dyno testing was $675 Cdn.  Receipts attached.
As this engine is complete a number of existing parts out of my previous race engine are included, and not part of the new build price of $12,289.
Contributed parts. Canfield Aluminum heads,  MSD crank trigger, Titanium valve retainers, Stud girdle, Harmonic balancer, Roller timing chain with 2 piece Cloyes billet cover, Holly 750 racing carb,  braided fuel log with fuel pressure gauge, Billet valve covers, Hitachi starter, Edelbrock manifold and carb spacer,  MSD crank trigger, and MSD distributor.
Add your water pump and alternator amd you are ready to go drop it into your car. 
As our decision to get out of drag racing happened just as this engine was being completed we are willing to part with it for significantly less than the $12,289 (plus at least $1,400 in parts off of our old engine so a total value of about $13,689).  Our loss is your gain.
