i am possibly looking to them for a couple blown 540s. they have excellent pricing and are willing to work with me on a lot of little items. i am primarily looking for opinions of people who have operating hours on their engines, but ALL testimony, good or bad is welcome.

i have been screwed to DEATH before, don't want to go thru that agin! so i'm asking for advice this time.
thanks,

dean, i know what you mean about being screwed to death. my advice: trust no one. not even your mother. especially not any engine builders on lake texoma. i hope you get some good feedback from the board to help your decision.

Spoke with him on the phone a couple times. He's done upgrades to Mach1's before and has always been helpful despite the fact I have yet to spend any money with him. He seemed like a stand up guy to me and sounded like he know's what he's doing. He said he'd come pickup my boat all the way at LOTO if I wanted him to do the work. Then we'd test it down there before I hauled it back. May yet take him up on it. Though everytime I get the cash to do something to my boat, something else comes up and wipes me dry.
