Engine Kits - What's The Difference?
Hello Enginetech friends, in this blog we are going to discuss Enginetech engine kits. Enginetech engine kits are broken down into three categories: Remain Kits, Rebuild Kits, and Master Kits.
These three categories all have two potential subcategories, premium and economy. The premium engine kits have premium piston rings, meaning that the top rings are Stainless, Molybdenum or chrome where the economy kits come with regular cast rings. Some engines will have both options, and some will only have one or the other depending on the needs of your application.
Remain kits, also known as re-ring kits, come with a full set of gaskets, piston rings, and rod and main bearings. To help you visualize, we have provided pictures of each type of engine kit that we offer. The kits that are pictured are for a 2005-06 Ford 5.4L 24V.
