you do not need a better crate, most speed is lost or found in the corners on short tracks,maybe creative suspension parts would give you a better bang for your buck. also how old are your valve springs,replacing them,which is allowed, on a older engine will net you 8 to 12 hp.

ok guys, save me some time & effort.  What are the phone numbers, names, places, web sites, etc where I can get some crate engine bolts?

I hope you have a fishing license.

In the SS/Thunder class you can make the car faster by cheating or true tuning with the chassis, almost as easy as cheating with the engine. I found 2 tenths with a simple adjustment in my SS.

Another addition to penalizing the driver/owner, would be to go after the builders. In other words, if you rebuild or freshen crates, you are also liable for them to be legit. ei. If Joe's performance gets caught cheating with crates, his services can be banned. If the track sealed the engine after the race with a home track type seal, it would help stop engines being touched between races, too.

Sealed engine tampering needs to be recognized as a major NO,NO and dealt with sternly IMO.

The fact that a lot of the original posters may not be around anymore
The fact that no one is going to read back 4 pages of stuff that is 4 years old
The fact that a new thread about this has recently been started
We don't need 3 threads going about the same thing like usually happens on here (ex, Racing from Sunset Sept xx, 2011)

Bit hard to do when that builder is an approved engine source in the rule book, and also is (was) a sponsor of a series you run.

OUCH!!!!
