What our engine features that the others can't touch:

There is no competition for this built motor.
These engines are built with very high quality components, such as forged chromoly rods from Pauter and K1, along with forged 2618 aluminum Traum or Arias pistons.
8.5:1 compression pistons are used in this motor by default due to their resistance to detonation for turbo applications. If you would like a custom compression ratio for your motor, please allow an extra 6-8 weeks for delivery. Extra fees may apply.
Pauter rods are extremely high quality rods with extremely tight tolerances. These rods are responsible for holding together the motors of many Protege owners for many years.Be sure to check out our available clutches, engine mounts, manifolds, and turbo kits!
