PM JCPerf from OSO he can do the job and has a good reputation. His pricing is also very fair. His shop is on Long Island.

Thought you were looking at a cig?
If you know what you want to do and are looking for assembly talk to Johnny V. His brother has an engine shop that is first class. If I were keeping the AT he would be my new engine guy with out question. The problem is he is just getting into the Marine stuff and if you are looking for someone to design a package, he might not be your guy, but he would tell you that.

Cristoball,,, No Cig for me,, not with gas on the water going to be around 3.00 - 3.50.... not to mention needing a new tow vehicle,, I just cant afford to run twins right now, filling up one 110 gallon tank is bad enough for 275.00 never mind TWO... Going to stick w/ the single for now,, but when the time comes we'll be looking for an 02 or newer cig T.G T.S.

P.S I will give Johnny's bro a call,, Paulie reccomended him to me yesterday,, just asking around, would like to find somebody thats willing to do it on the side for some extra cash and won't rape me for 100.00 bucks an hour.. Thanks chris

Frankie Damico from Albany can do this for you. He really knows his stuff but only does it on the side. Give me a call if your interested and Ill pass on his number. He does alot of work for the locals around here and some on this board can vouch for him and his work

I would call Tyler crocket before you waist your money.A very reputable engine biulder is testing those heads right now ,so far they didnt come close to 50 hp over stock.Im so glad I didnt waste my money. stay tuned when tests are done ill ask him if I can post his shops name.Do you really think 100 hp would give you 14 mile per hr ? YOU dont have to agree with me .Do some more homework .
