GM Crate motors

Does anyone about the GM crate motors? I seem to remember the old target master motors that GM sold through the dealers were junk. GM says these are new motors, 2 shops have told me to stay away from these also becuse of poor quality in manifacturing<sp> Any ideas? Thanks, Mike

Crate Motors

I donít know about how they are made, but I do know that the people I know that run GM crate motors love them. The ones I know of are used in pick-ups and off-road vehicles in VERY harsh conditions. They stand up very well to conditions that a common vehicle will ever see. And the motors that I know of have been running for a long time with very few problems.

I had one installed in my chev. pkup 3 years ago. No problems and still running strong. They are more money compared to other solutions,but in the long run its worth it. Make sure you have a competent mechanic install it.
