My Bro has 1 guy at his Marina that has Sterling, and no issues. And there are 2 NJPPC members have had their motors done by Gellner, and no issues. Both are pretty darn good at what they do.
Dee, wasn't trying to single out anyone. Just stating my experience during my engine building days and wanted to let people know of a new company (new in name, old in experience) so the options are out there. We've all got our favorites...

See ya in NY.

The differences are small but few people realize how big Gellner Engineering really is. They have set records, built custom engines for NHRA pro stock cars and have worked with Outerlimits for custom marine packages. They also were recognized by Powerboat magazine back in December 2006 with an full article about them.

Panther no worries, it was a crack at the reference to engine building I'm sure.

And nice to see the Gellner camp piping in...when there's competition we all win as everyone's product gets better.

I know Darlin', I just didn't appreciate the Sterling vs Gellner thing , and the insinuation thrown. You know me by now, I'd blast ya Darlin' if I had an issue. Looking forward to seeing you in Long Island. And yeah, we will have fun!!

All of them are fine engine builders just like John Beck also who got thrown almost nails at by showing up in "dirty jeans" and unshaved in the Engine masters in Popular Hot Rodding a few years back. http://www.kitcarmag.com/techarticle.../photo_01.html
But Beck builds like did Lennart at Autoshop one of the Best underdogs that will clean the smile of any reputable builders face in a split second !
Thereīs a lot of fine engine builders and all of them can build a good engine even in a dirty room/parking lot if had to.
The warranty thing is then just business ethics.

Me myself Iīve trying to figure out which will be the best floor for an engine shop and guess what..it still is a wooden floor, if it gets oily you never slip on it plus itīs so more better for yer feet..just look at machinists what they stand on.
Although (oily) wood is a fire risk etc itīs not a healt risk and it can always be replaced so...ok it looks "awful" in someones eyes but on those who know better just right....and the smell of machine shop..old oil and machined metal...
*old school is still the best.
