    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great engine for the price! Installed in my 1994’ K1500 TBI/Vortec project. Engine runs great with no issues and passed CA emissions with flying colors.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A crate engine like no other! Just put this in my 1996 Chev Tahoe. And after following your manufacture break in instructions, the engine is running great! So much more quieter than the old tired engine which had 190,000 on her.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It Runs! Bought this crate motor 3 years ago. Few things you should know, compression on mine was 8.9:1 after I checked everything. Pistons had no name and no #s to properly identify with. I still don't know who makes them. A few of the head bolt holes did not want to hold torque which leads me to believe threads weren't chased. I ended up installing a mild cam, upgrading the valve springs on the heads to beehives, installing roller rockers, changing out push rods to comp cams, and changing out head gaskets with a thinner composite one that brought compression closer to 9.5:1. Besides that after properly primming the motor, it started right up. Runs good so far with 350 miles. Still breaking it in. Time will tell how long it will really last. If you are like me and don't I install your crate immediately, fog the engine and wrap it. It's cheap and saves you trouble down the road. That's what I did.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from 99 Chevy K1500 Suburban "Motor not ready to run" Had a couple of minor issues as to why 4 stars, Jegs and ATK customer service are excellent and helped every way they could. I recommend checking compression on all cylinders, verifying top dead center on #1 cylinder and lash on valves prior to install. Mine arrived with zero compression on #1, backed off 3/4 turn and got 170. 180 degrees out on timing but by doing compression check you'll find it easy to adjust. Call ATK for their break in procedure or download from web it is a little different than Jegs. Other than that started right up and hoping for another 273k miles out of her.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great value but has its problems Have about 300 miles on its a great running motor no noises running smooth but the oil pan is leaking from the front by the timing cover and around a few bolts.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not the value I expected Price seemed right and it shipped quickly. It arrived and only 3 days with free shipping. While priming the engine it began leaking oil from the oil pan up by the timing chain cover and along the divers side. After contacting Jeggs they gave me a $50 credit (not impressed) and told me to contact ATK directly. I contacted ATK twice, they told me a technician named Eric would call me back within a few hours, I am still waiting on them to call back and it has been more than 30 days. The tins are cheaply made. The valve covers have a push in plug instead of the screw in type my truck and all the other trucks this year model have. I'm about 350 miles in and now the timing chain cover is leaking about halfway up. I had to set the valve lash on every one of the valves before installing the engine because they were not set correctly. The engine did start right up and holds Good oil pressure, but after having to buy a harmonic balancer, the correct valve covers, and the extra time and effort to pull the oil pan off, go down the parts store and get the new parts which was more than the $50 they gave me, I believe it would be cheaper to just buy a GM crate engine next time. The warranty is what sold me on this engine, but if they won't even return your call what good is the warranty. I expected more from a company backed by Jeggs.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from vortec 350 the engine runs great. so far every seal that's came with the engine has failed. with in 100 miles I've had the same mechanic replace the rear seal, the timing cover seal, the oil pan gasket. Now my front camshaft seal is leaking and the warranty company only reimburses shop labor at 50 dollars an hour. Don't get into one of these

    Can I change the cam to a performance cam

    Asked by: Kip50
    The cam on the Jegs 059-0282 engine can be changed by the end user, however, the warranty would be void at that point.
