Our 331 Liberator shortblock is aimed directly at the guys that want a 400-500hp street car that runs pump gas, can drive to the track, rip off a few 10 second passes and drive home. We have refined and developed this shortblock over the last few years in an effort to help support the middle class guy that just wants to have fun and purchase a rock solid reliable engine at a very affordable price. Please take a look at what we build our engines with and the numerous machine operations that go into our engines. Don't forget to click the Images tab below to see a dozen plus pictures of the actual engines in there various stages, were not afraid to show you exactly what you are getting upfront.

Let me take a few sentences here to go over a few things. Be very afraid of alot of the so called "race" engine shops that don't even have there own equipment, they farm out all the critical machine operations. Then if your lucky they "may" assemble it at there "shop" Fordstrokers is 100% inclusive, meaning ALL machine work is done IN-House on our machines. Quality control is critical and crucial when asking a customer to spend 1000's of dollars. Also ask yourself why these "race" engine shops don't have ANY pictures of there shop, there machinery or there finished products but want you to fork over 1000's of dollars. I think once you see what we offer with your own eyes the choice becomes real clear why there are so many Fordstrokers Liberator Engines running around......................

Got my 331 liberator short block. packaged nicely, no damage. Proceeded to build it over the weekend, come monday morning we were ready to fire it up. I called woody to ask him about break in and I was told, the rings would be seated in a few minutes. At this time I was very skeptical about the rings seating so quickly. After talking it over with my buddy, we fired the car up, ran it through 2 heat cycles.

We then wanted to do a leakdown/compression test, I have never experienced rings seating in a few minutes. Well come to find out, we had virtually 0 leakdown and the compression averaged 168-172 on all 8 cylinders. I am very pleased and certainly glad I followed woodys advice, he certainly knows what he is doing in my opinion, thanks alot again
