I threw an email to them ..... All I have is a receipt with pretty much no details .....
The following is why I didn't worry about details ....
"CAROLINA MACHINE ENGINES for over 28 years has hand built over 50,000 Remanufactured Automobile and Marine engines, also Street Performance Pump Gas Crate engines and World Champion Racing engines. Sold at 'Factory Direct' prices. Our 'Better Business Bureau' rating is A+ , their highest rating available."
CAROLINA MACHINE ENGINES is an expert at extracting the most horsepower and producing the most dependable High Performance Pump Gas street engines available. We are able to do this because of our long time involvement in racing and performance street rodding 'and' because of our experience as a Production Engine Remanufacturer (PER).
Although we produce "high end" Performance and Race engines with expensive parts, we also produce more economical engines that use one or more of the stock OE parts such as block, crank, rods, heads, oil pan, etc. These engines can produce amazing horsepower and give good long service when "done right". We have the ability to accomplish this because of knowledge and experience gained from decades of racing under basically "stock" type rules and regulations of the various sanctioning organizations.
Each of our engines receive all new high Quality internal components, including performance valves, forged or hypereutectic pistons(when available), moly rings, brass expansion plugs, premium rod and main bearings, cam bearings, pushrods, valve springs, rocker studs, hydraulic lifters, rocker arms, timing chain set, and a specially chosen and dyno proven performance camshaft.
We use the highest quality brand parts such as ACL, B&B, BULLET, COMP CAMS, CLEVITE, CLOYES, DURA-BOND, EAGLE, EDELBROCK, ELGIN, FEDERAL MOGUL, FEL-PRO, HASTINGS, HOLLEY, JESEL, K-LINE, LUNATI, MAHLE, MANLEY, MELLING, PERFECT CIRCLE, PIONEER, PROBE, RHS (Racing Head Service), SCAT, SEALED POWER (Speed-Pro), STEF'S, SILVOLITE, STERLING, US SEAL, US TOOL, VICTOR-REINZ & WEIAND.
Many people make their final choice based on the vacuum and idle characteristics of the engine. See the "Idle Type" column above with the engine pricing.
"CHOPPY" idle is a very noticeable performance idle and will have a somewhat lower manifold vacuum, 10 to 12 inches. We recommend quality headers and a torque converter in the 1800 to 2800 RPM range. This is basically a rougher "Muscle Car" idle. We define these engines as "Almost Daily Drivers".
