Tyler is a stand up guy and very good motor man. I would not hesitate to use him.

Tyler has built several motors for me. He stands behind his work. He is the only one who touches my motors.

I have nothing but praise for Tyler. Very knowledgeable and does great motor work.

Remember, that is using ported stock heads and taking yours in exchange. Still a good package. I've done business with Tyler for years. I wouldn't hesitate to use his stuff and I'm sure it performs as he claims. If you have an HO now you could even recover some of the money by selling the PCM and cam to someone with a standard Mag. The only down side is you will lose any Smartcraft functions you currently have. The MEFI 4 is not as sophisticated as the PCM555(for better or worse).
