Default Chief Engines

I'm looking for first hand feedback on Chief engines. A couple of weeks ago I dropped an exhaust valve and punched it through the head. Looks like I am gonna need a new head some rockers and a piston . I got everything apart and am now looking for a reputable builder to put it back together, dyno and tune the motor.

I have heard good things about Chief but its always second or third hand. Friend of a friend kind of thing. I want to hear straight from the horses mouth, so if you have had any experience with Chief please reply and let me know your thoughts.

Thanks,
Jim

I can tell you from working directly with Tommy and the crew and being in the same business as they are that they are the best people you can possibly be associated with. As far as the work you need to have done I do not think you can find a better shop to deal with. Good luck Sincerely Laz Mesa

Ditto, Tommy and his shop are a class act. You will not be disappointed, my motors have over 100 hours on them and no problem.
