When buying a shortblock your decision doesn’t need to be based solely on basic fundamentals such as parts used and basic design.

There are many design variables that go into a shortblock other than compression ratio selection. When you purchase a shortblock from Bennett Racing Engines we take data gathered from your combination and develop a design plan for your goals.

We address many variables such as:
• Power adder piston design
• Proper valve clearance
• Cylinder & Rod Length for proper piston skirt design
• Bearing clearances
• Piston ring gap & material
• Proper rod length for application
