LaPouttre Racing Heads \ Engines
Demand for new and fresh racing engines and ported-flowed heads are starting to come in to the shop. There is currently a 4-6 week delay for full ported heads going out the door. Trackside support for the spring testing season in the Florida / Gulf Coast and California is filling up. The new 2000 product lines are getting posted daily on the web, we are strongly encouraging people to plan ahead in advance of their first national points event. A new product line of World Castings Merlin Crate Engines has now been added, featuring the best performance to cost ratio of any aftermarket based engine that we've seen. This "Crate Engine" is perfect for those who are wanting to upgrade their block and heads to the stronger aftermarket products. These fully assembled and dyno tested motors come in 509 or 540 CID and range from 545 to 585 HP right out of the Box! This is the best base to build upon for the money and has the capability to upgrade to the "top sportsman" class restrictions without re-purchasing major components. More details available at Merlin Crate Engines. The new Jeep Head modifications are presently being documented and will soon be posted up on the web with full color pictures describing the details involved. Presently, we need jeep head cores to be shipped with your order, due to the unavailability of good solid castings in our local area. We are working with a major core recycling company and are finishing the paperwork to eliminate this problem. We Thank all the Jeep owners for their patience in this matter. I guess that is all for now, hammer it hard and keep it between the lines!
