If you’re doing a high-performance engine build, then a torque plate is a must for getting the most out of your new powerplant. Adding this seemingly simple aluminum piece to your engine block will make a big difference in the cylinder boring and honing process. A torque plate simulates the forces an engine head applies when you’re driving, countering the distortion that can occur from bolt pressure while you’re boring. The result is perfectly straight and round cylinders. Whether you’re doing the engine rebuild yourself or taking it to an engine shop, make sure that and MAP torque plate is attached. After all, who wouldn’t want something that more than pays for itself in increased performance and reliability?
Modern Automotive Performance has developed torque plates for the cars and engines that our customers drive all the time. Order a torque plate for the Honda K20 engine, the Nissan SR20, the 2008-2015 EVO X 4B11 and many others. Some are compatible with multiple engine models, which is great for a machine shop that wants to do the best work for customers. These torque plates are CNC-machined from thick billet aluminum that will last for many rebuilds. They also come with a set of steel spacers that give you the proper block depth when boring and honing.
Any engine you work on will have a better seal, higher compression and lower oil consumption when you use a torque plate for machining the block. You’ll want to tell all your friends about your little secret — at least until they all want to hire you to rebuild their engines. All MAP aluminum torque plates are 100 percent made in the USA and have a limited lifetime warranty. They also qualify for free shipping in the lower 48 states. When you factor in our low prices, then a torque plate is a small investment now that will pay off again and again.
