Thanks 1Fast. The prices look pretty good. 3 engines appeal to me at first glace. I have got tons of questions below, so if anyone has any useful information that you think I should know about these, I would appreciate a post back.
The Ram Jet 350; Cost is about 4,600. I like the Ram Jet because it seems that it is all ready to bolt on. They claim that "once installed in the vehicle, a user needs only to supply 12V power and fuel...", I assume this means the starter and pulleys and all odds and ends are included - who knows? If so, it looks like not to many extra costs involved. Although the fuel injection should be great, I am not sure if the power level will be enough. It also may not have the muscle car rumble. Plus, will need to ad a fuel pump/filter which will cost a few more hundred.
The Fast Burn 385 cost is about $4,000 and is closer to the HP level I am looking for, but not enough of a jump to swith from the cost effective Ram Jet Fuel Injection. But, It seems that you can add a hot cam and 1.6 rockers to get this up to 425hp! Now that sounds good, only issue is that I am not sure if the engine can be ordered with the upgrade, of if I have to install it myself. I would prefer if it could be ordered that way becasue the whole idea of buying the crate is so that I dont have to do the assembling myself... Also, note sure if the 385 version comes fully assembled (ie Distributor, etc). After adding the Carb, Starter, Hot Cam, 1.6 rockers, etc, you are probably looking at onther $1,000 at least bringing the total to over $5,000. Ouch!
The ZZ4 is advertised at 355hp and cost about 3,500. Not bad cost but short on the HP. But, it looks like you can customize this one also with the Hot CAM and 1.6 Rockers. Not sure what this will do to the HP (maybe 390?). Like the one above, need to add another $1000 to bring it up to $4,500. I am not sure if this can be ordered with the upgrade or needs to be assebled with by the customer.
Any thoughts on this? Thanks!
