Borowski Race Engines, Inc. has been building high-end street, race and marine engines since 1968. Our advanced CNC machining capabilities and the skill of our staff allow us to build incredible engines such as the one show here. The foundation for this piece of automotive artwork is a Dart SHP SBF block.
These blocks are available in any level of finish from ready for final machining to fully machined to custom crate engine. Optional fully prepped block ready for assembly includes:
- Square deck to height and CNC chamfer cylinders on our 4-Axis Rottler CNC
- Deburr entire block & main caps
- Hone cylinders w/torque plate
- Align-hone mains, hone lifter bores
- Final clean block and paint with primer
- Install Dart cam bearings & test fit cam
- Install oil galley and freeze plugs
Our 4-axis CNC boasts precision of 0.0002" and one thousandth of a degree. Check out this Instagram time-lapse video of a probe cycle. While we do love our CNCs, we use old school stone hones for a finish we believe to be superior to that typical of diamond hones.
We will also be happy to help you source parts, assemblies or complete crate engines for your build. Please call us at 815-725-2727 with any questions.
