Edelbrock 347 Small-Block Ford Crate Engines Unveiled at SEMA Show

TORRANCE, CA - A new line of Ford crate engines made their debut at the 2008 SEMA show. Edelbrock's RPM 347s deliver up to 440 horsepower and 425 ft./lbs. of torque (dual-quad) and 437 hp and 415 ft./lbs. of torque (single-carb). These 347 cubic-inch feature a 4.030" bore x 3.400" stroke combo and are built from 8.2" deck height Dart Iron Eagle block, SCAT cast crankshaft, forged steel connecting rods and KB pistons. The heart of the performance is Edelbrock's Total Power Package combination of roller camshaft, Performer RPM or RPM Xtreme cylinder heads, RPM intake manifold and carburetor or Pro-Flo XT fuel injection. Like all Edelbrock crate engines, these Ford packages deliver a street-friendly balance of broad torque and high-end horsepower on pump gas.

Additional qualities include Edelbrock 1.6:1 roller rockers, MSD distributor and a Milodon oil pan. Edelbrock offers its customers optional finish (as-cast, polished or EnduraShine), water-pump and oil pan style (front or rear sump). All Edelbrock crate engines are hand assembled by dedicated Edelbrock technicians. Custom build requests are always considered by Edelbrock - contact Edelbrock direct with requests.
