**as of October 2019 the lead time for a rebuilt engine is 32 weeks**

Stage 1 rebuilt long block assembly

Our Stage 1 engine is what we consider a "stock" replacement.

It is built with the same quality parts and the same precision machine work as any of our other engine builds. We don't cut any corners. 

You'll get better than stock performance and reliability. 

We get to build your engine with tighter than factory tolerances, so reliability is never a concern. With proper maintenance, it will outlast your original engine.
