CPE crate engines come complete with 2 year, 24,000
mile warranty on all internal reciprocating parts. Budget Blueprint
or engines using used parts will have a 1 year 12,000 mile warranty.
Engines are required to be completely built and dyno tested by
CPE. CPE stands behind all machine work and workmanship. Any parts
failures will be warrantied by manufacturer at their discretion.
Warranties do not apply to normal engine wear and tear. All warranties
will be voided if engine is taken apart or raced in any form.
All warranty work must be performed by CPE.
As of February 1, 2011,
All Craft Performance Engines will be required to run Joe Gibbs
Hot Rod or equivalent (at least 1800ppm zinc) oil for all Warranty
work. Oil samples will be taken before any warranty work is performed.
Because of recent changes to the production of oil the amount
of Zinc vs. Detergents has changed to meet the latest EPA specs.
All car manufacturers are required to warranty catalytic converters
for 125K miles. For this reason the PPM zinc has been lowered
and the PPM detergent has been raised. Zinc is the bonding element
that adheres the oil to the metal, the lower amounts of Zinc will
cause more wear on cold starts and low RPM Driving. We have taken
extra steps to make sure your engine has been broken in and Dyno
tested with Joe Gibbs Break-In oil, please help keep your engine
Read this CAREFULLY
before starting your engine!!!
- Engines are shipped without oil
- Pre-Prime and check oil pressure. Observe proper torque specs.
- Never use synthetic oil to start an engine! We recommend Joe
Gibbs oil for your engine.

***Know how to use your timing light.*** If a dial timing light
is used, set dial on timing desired and set timing on ZERO mark
on damper. Or set light on zero and set desired timing on DAMPER.
We have heard of people setting the light on 34 degrees and timing
damper on 34 degrees giving a total of 68 degrees timing. This
WILL DAMAGE your engine. This had happened to a lot of people.
That is why we prefer a regular, non-dial timing light for these
