Our Street/Strip engines are almost exact duplicates of our Race engines except the compression ratio is lower and the camshaft is somewhat streetable. There are other changes also, such as ring tension and different valve seals, etc. Our Racing engines are the product of over 40 years of intense racing participation and experience. See the "About Us" page for more on CME Racing.

These engines are designed for racing with occasional street use. They are designed to make maximum horsepower above 4000 RPM, therefore horsepower and torque at 2000 to 4000 RPM will usually be less than our Performance Street engines of the same cubic inches. For maximum efficiency, they definitely need a performance torque converter with a stall of 3500 to 4500 RPM.

Our more economical engines start with seasoned choice core pieces including a block that is thoroughly inspected including sonic testing the thickness of the cylinder walls. Our high end engines are all new including the block, crankshaft and heads. Engines with a mixture of OE and new core pieces are produced also.

Regardless of which engine you choose, each one receives all new Quality internal components including brand name parts such as Federal Mogul, Clevite, Felpro, Victor, Dana, Melling, Perfect Circle, Comp Cams, Cloyes, Pioneer, Edelbrock, Manley, Lunati, Moroso, Mr. Gasket, Speed Pro, TRW and ATI.

Engines receive stainless steel valves, hypereutectic or forged pistons, moly rings, Clevite or Federal Mogul bearings, performance pushrods, lifters, valve springs, rocker studs, roller rocker arms, roller timing set, and our special grind solid lifter camshaft with well over .500" lift. Hydraulic camshaft and lifters are an option but is not recommended, because hydraulic lifters can leak down or pump up at higher RPM and cause damage.

Every engine is expertly machined, balanced, blueprinted, plate honed, line honed, decked, and sonic tested. They are then assembled by a highly capable technician. Longblocks are spin tested to check oil pressure, compression, and oil circulation.

Our Complete engines include the oil pump, oil pump screen, oil pump shaft, oil pan, oil filter, oil filter adapter, dipstick, timing cover, balancer, valve covers, intake manifold, and spark plugs. Completes are also dynamometer tested using comprehensive "break-in" procedures. The actual dyno printout sheet for that particular engine showing the horsepower and torque at various RPM points is provided with the engine.

Our horsepower figures are as honest as possible. Dynamometers can be calibrated incorrectly either accidentally or purposely. We guarantee the Quality, Dependability, and Accuracy of our engines with a written warranty which we religiously stand behind.

Almost no engine builder warrants a racing engine because no one can predict parts failure for high stress use. Therefore we feel that our 90 day Street/Strip racing engine warranty shows our dedication to our customers. CME will repair the engine at no charge for our labor and the purchaser pays only for the parts used in the repair. This warranty applies to complete and dyno tested engines only. These engines are not legal for sale or use on pollution controlled vehicles.

Note that current SUPPLY CHAIN issues can cause unexpected delays. Also due to basically having to bid for certain parts such as aftermarket cylinder heads, a surcharge may be required for such parts.

Please use EMAIL rather than phone calls when concerning engine status, unresolved issues, complaints, warranty questions, etc. You can be sure our management  will read and respond. We cannot be responsible for "Word of Mouth" claims. Prices listed are subject to change /correction without notice. It is best that you have all quotes and other information in print (emails) as we do not accept verbal claims. Emails can take 1 to 5 working days to answer and sometimes longer.

For CORE REFUNDS to apply, returned cores should be the exact same engine as the engine purchased. Also assembled, complete, and rebuildable. Other cores of equal or higher value may be considered. No rusty or "junkyard" cores.

BUILD/REBUILD time for normal stock replacement, undamaged, non performance longblock and shortblock engines typically takes 10 to 20 working days. Other engines take longer which includes complete engines,  "High Torque",  Power Upgrades, and special stock replacement engines. Upgrades , changes, and additions to orders can  add considerable time. Antique, special, and  Performance engines can take three to twelve months or more depending on the engine. Any ETA, when quoted, is an estimate only and is not a promise or guarantee. We do not rush our engines. Please make your plans accordingly. Please do not call for updates, it takes time to look up a job to find the exact status. We prefer emails asking for updates or status which can take 1 to 5 working days to answer. We do not have the personnel to make routine calls or emails for updates, etc.

CANCELLATIONS after we have time and money invested into the job for stock OEM replacement engines require a 10% to 15%  cancellation fee of the quoted engine price. For Performance, antique, and special engine jobs, cancellations can be 25% or more of the quoted job price. A full refund can be made only after the order is completed and  the engine is sold elsewhere. This decision is solely at our discretion.  

HORSEPOWER figures advertised may vary somewhat and also require that the user install the recommended performance parts and accessories such as carburetor, ignition system, and exhaust system for those figures to be accurate.

PEFORMANCE engines will be NOISER than OEM stock engines especially when cold. That is part of a Hot Rod's charisma. This is due to centered pin pistons, extra clearances, and faster ramp lift camshafts! This cannot be avoided. These are NOT warranty issues.

Engines sent to us for rebuild or machining should be STRIPPED PROPERLY. We absolutely DO NOT take any responsibility for lost parts when left on an engine such as brackets, tags, bolts, motor mounts, etc that are not needed for the rebuild of the engine. Also we require specific instructions in writting concerning the preservation of originality such as stampings, decals, tags, etc. We will make every effort to maintain the engine's originality when given written detailed requests but NO guarantees will be given.

We make no GUARANTEES expressed or implied of merchantability, fitness for special purpose, or exact original replication or specifications. Correct or matching casting numbers are NOT guaranteed or promised. WE DO NOT DO DATE CODES.

SLEEVING of cylinders and other  repairs can be part of any engine recon. Requests for no such repairs including minimum overbores and undersizes are extra charge and can add considerable time to the job. Also must be made in writing (email).

REQUESTS FOR PICTURES or videos during the building process cannot be guaranteed even when requested! Also not guaranteed available are spec sheets, build sheets, etc. This information is time consuming to produce and some information is proprietary and not available at all. When available, such special requests can be at extra cost.

IMPORTANT: Please READ the detailed WARRANTY supplied with your engine or request a copy at time of order. Note that field labor is not available for performance and some other engines. Purchasers are required to agree to NOT make chargebacks or deposits and payments for engines must be cash, check, or wire. Deposits and payments are considered acceptance of our policies and warranty.
