The new HP blocks use only the highest quality materials for maximum strength and reliability. These blocks will be delivered with cross bolted steel billet main caps, improved lifter valley design that improves strength in this area, and many other engineered quality and strength improvements. The engine design will allow the use of the original stock performance intakes, heads, exhaust, starters, water pumps, oil pans, and standard internal oiling systems.

  For all your cars,
          we have some hot new Gearshift Knobs
  Show off your personality, interests, military branch, etc.  You can even customize your knob with an old collectable, your own design or even a family photo by having them embedded into the knob.  We can also embed tie tacks, pins, etc.  Check out our additional embedment pages for your own ideas or use ours.  The pricing on these knobs is great and you'll be getting great quality.      Gearshift Knobs webpages
