Best Automotive Performance Starters & Parts in 2020



ACCEL Starter Solenoid (ACC 40111) Review:


This product fit just like a harley oem unit and looks better even though you cant really see it because it is hidden under a chrome cover. As far as performance it has been on the bike for a few months no more problems with starting. I am a happy customer. I would recomend this part and i would use it on a customers bike.



Powermaster 9612 Mastertorque Starter Review:


I replaced everything but my starter to try to get past a SLOW Cranking issue when my 350 was warmed up or at operating temp. Nothing worked. I decided to go with the Powermaster and i'm so glad i did. I no longer have a slow start. This starter doesnt flinch.. turns motor over easily.. cold or warm or hot... no issues. I would highly recommend it... the positioning options was key with my application since i run headers that are tight to my block.



ACDelco 336-1148 Professional Starter, Remanufactured Review:


I installed this starter on my 1996 Impala SS as an upgrade to the stock B-body starter. This starter should physically bolt to ANY LT1, however exhaust/plumbing/electrical modifications may be necessary.

I found that for my application that zero modifications were required. I even used the stock hardware from the original starter.

This Corvette starter works flawlessly, appears to be of a high quality, has a slightly different sound to it (more of a gear whine), is slightly more compact, and even costs slightly less than the 'appropriate' replacement.



Spectre Performance 4370 Stainless Steel Starter Heat Shield Review:


it barely fits....but none the less it does fit. you can install while the starter is still connected to the engine....however, it would be easier while the starter is out of the vehicle. I have a 82 k5 with headers...and it fits barely. I had some serious heat soak on my starter. this resolved my issues.



Proform 66256 Black Powdercoated High-Torque Starter Review:


Used it on my '74 c10 350 sbc. It fit wonderfully with only a few shims. It works like a charm.



Tru-Tech SS588T Starter Solenoid Review:


This is a bargain-priced Ford style solenoid. I used it on a Chevy engined hot rod project because my headers ran close to the starter and would heat the built-in solenoid to the point that the car would have to cool off for a considerable period on a warm day before it would restart. Bypassing the Chevy solenoid in favor of this one on the firewall, far away from the heat, did the trick. Plan to buy another one for my vintage Willys Jeep project. If you are concerned about quality and have plenty of money then by all means purchase the genuine Ford part at your local dealership. I have had no trouble with this one after several months of use.



Powermaster 9300 Starter Review:


I have a supercharged 440 small block (Mopar R3 race block bored and stroked) that has challenged previous starters. My last starter all of 1-year old with less than 500-miles snapped in two places where the casting inserts in the trans housing. I have never seen a failure in this area. The cast aluminum housing snapped and failed. My last mini-starter was $70 and made by a company that goes by two letters. The lesson is: Pay for the better product like Powermaster because it's cheaper in the long-run and cheaper than a failure! Plus, I called Powermaster after hours about this application, left a voicemail and they called back early the next morning with an intelligent answer. I was impressed. This application seems to be rough on starters so I will update later.
