Tyler Crocket. That's where I'd go on that side of the state. Or Sterling, but that will be more $$.

Tyler Crockett without a doubt!! He stands behind everything he does. His track record speaks for itself. Builds everything for reliability.

Another Vote for Tyler, He has done a lot of work for me. Reasonably priced and takes a practical approach to his work.

Make that 4 votes for Tyler, He will be building my next motors for my phantom and did a nice set for my last Sunsation. You also have Ron at Dynamic in your back yard, I have heard both good and bad about him. I depends on what your want done with your motors. You also have Jim at Propellor Basin right in you back yard.

I forgot about "no deals" Ron .
He does good work , a little pricey but good. There are allot of his motors out on the lake.
He did some machine work on a SBF for me years ago and it was right on. That motor ended up having a ton of nitrious sprayed thru it with no problems!!

Another vote for Tyler all the way from South Carolina. He built the 502's in my buddys 32 non-stepped fountain. Both motors dyno'd at 610hp n/a. Boat runs 87+ on GPS. Curt has 2 summers on the motors with no problems. And when you go check on your motors Tyler will make you a Frozen Cocktail.

Can't beat that!
