Default Engine builders

Does it matter to you if you were having your engine[s] rebuilt, and the shop you brought them to doesnt have a machine shop?Even if you were buying new,does that sway your decision if an engine builder doesnt have much equipment?

i personally wouldn't go somewhere where i didn't know them or take the time to know them..... i didn't see JC's post that said you didn't know the builder, just if they had a machine shop or not....

I like for one shop to be responsible for everything. If you know that one person is a perfectionist then the machine work, balancing, assembly etc will all be at the same standard. You dont have to worry about trusting someone your guy trusts. Hope that makes since.

Well JC...after you have had a few motors built...and then you go for some big power..cubes..and start pushing all the limits and you are needing all the latest info..you really do need to have a in house machine shop...there are too many problems..questions and a general minor lack of knowledge when pushing the limits with big horse power.
