I've met Mark, but have not personally done business with him. However, a few people I know have, and they have been very pleased. One guy I know will not use anyone else other than them. He will pull his boat 5-6 hours to have them do the work rather than 15-20 minutes to have someone else do it.

I too had heard good things about Mark mostly from Doc Holiday and Dustin Whipple. So I loaded my Whipplecharged 525efi in the back of my truck and drove 14hrs to his place. BIG MISTAKE!! Can you say back yard mechanic and to compare Mark to Eddie Young, ARE you serious??
I am not saying he can't do good work but I was the 1 in 10 customers that got the sh*t job.
I do have pics of all the things that had to be fixed including blown head gasket first time boat was in water and both oil pans leaking, oh yeah it goes on & on. Said he would fine tune engines with boat in water at LOTO, stood me up twice. 1st time did return my call & the second would not even answer my calls.
As I said earlier Mark isn't even a pimple on Eddie Youngs ass in the marine world.

While I really appreciate the vote of confidence, ya'll please don't turn this thread into a comparison to Mark and I. I've already stated that the original poster would be in good hands if he sent his stuff to Mark to dyno and tune. If I didn't have respect for Mark and what he does, I wouldn't have made a post at all. There are only a few shops that I would recommend for work, and he is one of them.

We all have our followers, good and bad. Let's keep this about what the OP asked. I'm sure that everyone on hear that owns a business has at least one or more customers that aren't happy.
Thanks,
Eddie

I brought my motors to Mark in April 2009 and picked them up August 2009. Ran boat once in (I think) October 2009, blew head gasket, put boat on trailer, winterized it & it sat until April 2010.

Eddie , your post says "original poster would be in good hands if he sent his stuff to Mark to dyno and tune". I agree with you, he can run a dyno & I believe it is honest HP #'s but he did a crap job on my rebuilds. The OP asked if anyone has had a motor rebuilt & dynoed not tuned & dynoed as you give him credit for.
As far as unhappy customers goes I said in my post " I was probably the 1 in 10 customers that got the crap job.
Baja27 was asking if anyone here has had there engines rebuilt & dynoed and wanted feed back. I stated my experience with Precision marine as asked by Baja27 & my opinion will never change.
If anybody thinks I am making all this up just PM me, I have a ton of pics.
