The employees at Craft Performance Engines, have a combined 100 years of professional and personal experience in the performance engine industry with over 50 National NHRA Records set by owners and customers. Here on the outskirts of Arkadelphia, (in Hollywood, Arkansas), believe it or not, we have a state of the art machine shop. Superflow, Rottler, Sunnen, DMG & Newen machines help us build you the best possible cylinder heads, rotating assemblies, short blocks and complete engine assemblies available anywhere. Our employees pride themselves on doing a good job at a fair price and being honest with our customers. Our parts and engines are shipped worldwide. If you are located in Kuwait, Japan, South Africa, or Gadsden, Alabama… do not worry….we can get an engine to you.

A lot of our sales are based on repeat customers and word-of-mouth. Keith, Lance & Tony spend a big part of their day faithfully answering questions via emails and forums for customers and non-customers alike. Our company has worked very hard to build a good name in the performance engine industry. A lot of sweat and time has gone into staying out front in the ever changing engine market. Our staff is very knowledgeable about engine combinations and what will work best with your budget. We sell engines for show cars, race cars, Cobras, mud trucks, hot rods, restoration cars, street cars, personal cars... just about any kind of ride you can imagine.

You have probably seen some of our engines on Gearz, Speed Channel, at car shows, Cobra round ups, or passing you at the track. The detail work on our engines is very nice and worth a second look. You will not be disappointed in the look or the performance of one of our many engine combinations.

Unlike many of our competitors, when you call us you will get a live person on the phone. We ship UPS, USPS, Fedex, Fedex Freight for your convenience!
