Just wanted to drop you a note. I bought this 347 from you in December and have put about 5000 miles on it so far. We just got back from the Falcon Nationals. We drove from just South of Baton Rouge to Wichita Kansas and back a total of 1665 miles. We had absolutely no trouble with the engine. It still has plenty of power and runs great. Everything is still clean and dry, no water or oil leaks anywhere.We made the trip on just under 100 gallons of gasoline which comes out to a little over 16.5 miles per gallon. This is driving 75 mph with air conditioning running the entire time. Feel free to post this on your web page or call if you have any questions. Thanks. Sherlin

Steve, My name is Mike C. Iโ€™m the mechanic that installed the LS you guys built for Robs 69 Chevelle. I would like to say you guys did an awesome job. You delivered exactly what you said you would. A turn key engine that produces gobs of torque and HP. I literally had to do nothing after the install except program the computer to turn on the fans. Great job. Iโ€™m including some pics of the completed job.

Dear Steve:

I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate the quality and precision put into building my engine. After 6 years my 461 Pontiac stroker is very strong with no leaks. I haven't even changed the spark plugs yet. I would never consider anyone but Proformance Unlimited to build my engines.

Steve,

The car is being broken in as I type. I have about 100 miles on the new engine and it is perfect.

I can`t thank you and your team enough for building this for me and assisting me through the process.

I had it installed over a weekend and then did the modification for the vacuum.

Here are a few pictures. If there are any certain pics you want let me know. My son has a video of the first start and walk around to verify everything was good.

I have had my 302 Windsor for around 5 years now,and i must say it is faultless and exceeded all expectations.
A quality build couldn't be happier, the only time i have had to put a spanner on it is for servicing.
A big thanks to the guy's at proformance unlimited.

This is the difference in who you get to build your crate engines.
We contracted Proformance Unlimited to work with us in building the 408 Injected Roller Windsor for the XY build for one reason.......experience!
There have been literally hundreds of "Crate Engine" companies starting up since they became popular ๐Ÿ™„ but nearly every one of these are simply "fitters".....they just assemble a heap of parts out of the box and bolt everything together into something that resembles an engine ๐Ÿค” Nothing is matched, inspected, measured or tested......you get it in a box bone dry and just prey it all works.....which 9 times out of 10 they don't !!!
This is where crate engines got their bad reputation, from these types of pop up builders with no experience trying to cash in on a lucrative market ๐Ÿ˜ก
We chose Proformance for their 30 odd years of experience in this industry and worked with them over many 2:30 in the morning personal phone calls to Doug and the staff the whole way through the build to plan, discuss and modify components to get exactly what WE wanted, not some catalog engine. Even through shipping and customs dramas they were there the whole process helping out from their office in New Jersey to make sure everything got sorted ๐Ÿ‘
Their customer service and backup has carried on long after they "got our money"
The 408 turned out a great engine and came with all parts receipts, build pics, dyno sheets and even a video of it's dyno runs๐Ÿ˜
Won't get that from any of these internet crate builders !!!
I highly recommend Proformance Unlimited to anyone looking to build their own crate engine ๐Ÿ‘

WOW!! Great experience dealing with Steve. He was very helpful with any question and resolving any questions.
This is the car that your 454 engine promotion video went in. It was the 2017 Second place winner in its class at World of Wheels in Pittsburgh and First Place 2017 Street Achievement Award in paint. The car and 454 engine are head turners.

Hey Steve,

Hope all's well with you and Doug in the new shop. Just emailing for some feedback on the 408Windsor you built me a couple years ago. All's running great still, the motor hasn't missed a beat apart from MSD burning out which is nothing to do with you guys. I appreciate your after sales service and always picking up the phone to answer my many questions before and after it was built, it has plenty of power and runs smooth as, exactly what you promised me. I'll be in contact soon for some upgrades/tweaks to see if we can bump her up to 550hp :-> I've attached a couple of photos of the car it went into. A 67 S Code GTA Fastback, hard to find over here in Australia

Take care

I would like to thank Steve, Doug and all the team at Proformance Unlimited for a fantastic job on my 400 HP 347 build that actually did 360 HP on the dyno. The quality of craftsmanship was much better than it needed to be for my satisfaction. The attention to detail was the best I have ever seen. I would highly recommend Proformance Unlimited to any one looking to purchase a high quality crate engine at a fair price.
Thank you Steve for an outstanding job.

Hi Steve,

I just wanted to actually follow up with you on that Olds 350 you guys built for me. You may recall that the initial installer wasnt truly prepared to bring the idea to fruition. He installed the engine, but it wasnt right. In fact, I didnt even drive it....lol....I knew all I had to do was get it in the right hands, though, which I did when I got it to Chris at Ludlow's Speedshop. Now, that motor is smokin hot and Im mighty glad that I went with your company! :-)

Cant wait to do business again, in fact!

Thanks again!

In 2014, I decided that I wanted to upgrade and rebuild a 1937 Ford Cabriolet that had been my father-in-law's for over 20 years. So....I began with the engine and transmission. I contacted Performance Unlimited at the time in NJ. Steve worked with me to design the engine of my dreams for this car. We build a 383 Stroker using a GM 350 block. This engine is a standard 400 HP/500 ft. lbs of torque. The engine dynoed at 450+ HP and 520 ft. lbs. of torque. I couldn't be more pleased with the build quality and the look of the engine. Now this engine sat on the shipping pallet for the next 2 years as I rebuilt all the mechanicals around the engine and finally dropped it in the car in 2015. On November 4, 2016 I started the engine and began the test runs needed to ensure the drive train ran correctly. I could not be more pleased with the performance of the engine. It is a "BEAST" to say the least in this car. I was very pleased with the support, discussions and direction provided by Steve along the way to ensure that the engine I wanted performed the way I wanted. That support was very much appreciated and contributed greatly to my following their direction as the installation and fine tuning progressed. The result........I have a wonderful car with an incredible engine that I am very happy with and would encourage anyone seeking to build a custom engine to contact Steve or Doug. Also, Kim Attanasio was wonderful to work with as well. She worked hard to connect me with the people in the shop that could answer my questions as they came up along the way. Thanks so much.

Thank you guys so much for building an awesome engine! This 383 stroker screams at 400 hp! The shop that installed my motor was very very inpressed! The engine was shipped already tuned and all dialed in! They had a Roush mustang and they said that my engine that was built by profornance unlimited was heads above the Roush. The roush couldn't touch it! The car drives beautiful. You guys are truly the BEST! Thank you for this awesome engine!

Steve,
Finally got the transmission issues behind me and have the C6 installed. Can't thank you enough for the awesome motor! Here is the burnout video you asked for. I will be racing at Hemmings "Musclepalloza" on Labor Day weekend and will let you know how it does.
I will be using you again if I get another project in the works. Again thanks for the fantastic motor.

Hi Steve.

A quick update on the Chrysler 360 you built for me.
1000 miles now covered and it just seems to get quicker. Even in a heavy Dodge Stepside the performance is awsome. Leaves a lot of others behind.
No leaks. No seeping and I have never had to adjust it.
Well done to you and your team for a tremendous build. I would recommend you to everybody.

Hey Steve

Just a quick update on my 360 you built for me.

I have about 300 miles on it now. No leaks what so ever. The motor is freeing itsself up and getting even more responsive each outing.

It surprises a lot of cars that pull along side lol.

Please let your team know and say thanks from me I cant fault the looks and power of this motor.

Will keep in touch and let you know how its performing.
