Product Details

Tilton Engineering 54-40001 Severe Duty Super Starters

Tilton Engineering 54-40001 Chevy Starter Severe Duty 2.0kW

High Torque Super Starters!

Recommended for 450 and larger high-compression engines, the 3.75:1 gear reduction of the Super Starter produces 50% more torque than OE starters while being less than 2/3 the size of OE starters for more header, pan, and frame clearance. With an approximate total weight of 12 pounds, Super Starters have full ball bearing construction to prevent most adverse effects from hot or cold weather. A low 250 amp current draw allows more spark for firing the motor. These starters are 1" longer, 1 pound heavier, and produce 43% more cranking power.

  • 3 HP, 2.2kw
  • Approximate Weight: 12 lbs
  • More torque in a smaller size
  • Recommended for V8 engines with compression ratios over 11:1 or with small diameter flywheels
  • Severe Duty Super Starter
  • Chevy V8, 90 V6
  • 153 and 168-tooth Flywheel

Showed inventory..good online service

Good product and fast delivery.

first time ive order from here and my experience was great! shipping was crazy fast. and they had the best price shipped on the 2jz arp head stud set i could find. also how on their site they actually list if they have the part in stock and how many which is very helpful. ive payed for parts to find out the vender didn't even have them available. which lead to more down time. and we all hate down time :)


I ordered an Optima battery for my truck after I did a Google search for the battery. Autoplicity was the cheapest on the Web. Even cheaper then eBay. They got me hooked. Thanks Autoplicity

Best price on the internet. A lot cheaper than amazon, so I was pretty surprised.

This is the first time I've ordered from Autoplicity. I found they had the best price on the item I was looking for and decided to try them. I ordered this item yesterday(Sunday) and was just informed that it shipped. That is quick. I am pleased with their customer service and will use them as my first source.

Ordered a CTEK charger. Great price, and recieved it in 3 days. Very pleased.

I ordered a Flowmaster cat back system for my 2012 F-150. The order arrived the day they said it would and the product came at a fair price. Well done.
