well il cross my fingers just bout the 525 311. hopfully a good runner. to you machine shops is it a big deal to rebuild these custom everything dart intakes merlin ported heads je pistons 60 over roller cam forged crank and advanced trannies with extra band and bullet drives.

You might want to talk with Frank from Scorpion Racing Engines in Livonia, Michigan.

Another vote for Frank at Scorpion. He's at the top of his game and builds a great engine package.

If you're looking for an engine builder with a great reputation, then Dave Wesseldyk of WESCO Racing Engines....his shop is only about about 150-175 miles from Traverse City and about 15 miles outside of Grand Rapids area. He's at least worth a phone call.....he's a straight talking no hype guy and has built 100's of RELIABLE Hi-Perf Offshore MARINE engines. 616-662-2250. I have already responded to your other thread "What to expect from a machine shop" Whatever you do, I hope all goes better for you in the future.
