Brought to you by the founder of Probe Industries and Coast High Performance, VPE Vigilante and Vindicator Short Blocks are built as a rock solid foundation for today's engine technologies. Based on Dart engine blocks, 4340 forged steel internally balanced crankshafts, and application specific connecting rods and piston/pin combinations. Also standard are ring sets featuring Nitrided Steel Tops with Napier Seconds and flow vent style oil rings added to high performance engine bearings. Whether you are planning a high winding naturally aspirated engine or going for a boosted monster, VPE has the combination you need to endure the load.

Stock block short blocks are also available. Please contact your VPE tech representative.

Ford Short Blocks are available for the 8.200 302/5.0L platform, the 9.200 Cleveland, and the 9.500 Block 351 Windsor, providing engines that begin at 302 and peaking at 454 cubic inches of monster small block in a variety of compression ratios for a wide range of applications.
