Hi-Tech Engine Components recently supplied a 500+ horsepower crate engine for the television show Overhaulin’. Hi-Tech’s crate engine was featured on The Learning Channel show which aired Sept. 26, 2006.
Hi-Tech has supplied five performance crate engines for the program so far this year. Crate engines are more complete than ordinary replacement engines and usually include valve covers, oil pans, timing covers and intake manifolds.
According to Rex Falkenrath, Hi-Tech CEO, “The automakers including GM, Ford and Daimler/Chrysler have enjoyed great success with their crate engine offerings. Our aftermarket customers wanted to participate in the category and the recently introduced Hi-Tech Crate Engine program has really taken off. The engines are used in street rods, muscle cars, restoration projects, marine applications and trucks. What makes them so wildly popular is the fact that the customer simply adds ignition and fuel delivery to complete their engine install. For the consumer, these dyno proven combinations take out all of the guess work in matching up the right engine parts.”
The television show Overhaulin’ fakes a theft of a vehicle, greatly improves (overhauls) the vehicle and then returns the car to its owner in a week. Hi-Tech’s engine builders are participating in several episodes this year.
