Magnus 4G63 DSM / EVO Short Block



We have set the standard!

Our race proven crate motors are not a new thing. We have over 20 years of experience in building championship winning legendary 4G63 motors. With wins in many championships such as the NHRA our crate motors have proved themselves over and over again in action. Not only have they won they have also took world records. We focus on providing our customers with not just high horse powered motors but race winning motors. We want our customers to make history with the results they achieve.

Stage 1, Stage 2, Stage 3, Stage who?

Here at Magnus we do not believe in stages. Unlike our competitors we are against cutting corners only to offer our customer with a cheaper engine. All of our engines receive the same high quality parts and machining whether making 300hp or 1,000+hp. Quality and reliability are our paramount concerns when putting engines together. This short block ups the ante by adding a billet crankshaft! This short block is capable of accomplishing any reasonable goal you have of any 4G63 powered vehicle.

We’re not like the “other guy”

Stage who is our stage and the stage that sets the standard in the racing world. We do not believe in these stages that the other guy created. We all know that these stages are a joke. We do not cut corners on the core that we begin with. Every core we use is disassembled, cleaned and thoroughly inspected before being selected. Frost plugs are removed and replaced and squirters are   disassembled, cleaned and inspected or replaced as needed. Surface is decked and the cylinders are honed with a deck-plate in a climate controlled environment. Block is clearanced as needed. Pistons, rods and crankshaft are installed, assembled and balanced. For stroker or after market crankshaft please see the short block stroker page.
