Junkyard Finds

6 months ago Showcase

The 392 Crate HEMI® engine is an impressive specimen that can cost you a pretty penny. Lucky for those DIYers trying to pull off a restoration on a tight budget, a growing number of 392 6.4-liter HEMI engines are entering the aftermarket and the third generation is starting to show up in junkyards or abandoned vehicles. IMM Engines in Indio, California, got their hands on a BGE 392 for only $400 (the same model typically sells for up to $1,500) after it was rejected by several buyers for being non-running. IMM got to work taking it apart piece by piece to assess the internal damage, planning to do a full build-up and dyno-test series if they liked what they found. Well, the results are in. Let them walk you through the full dissection and tell us in the comments if the outcome was what you expected!
