Welcome Pat. I'm afraid I have no idea about those shops but hopefully someone can help out. I will copy your post into the engine section as well.

Pat
At the $3500 price does that include building the engine?

The other two sounds like they are just doing machine work and you build it.

Re: New guy and a rebuild question

kdtrucker, your answering to older posts. While your input is highly valuable on the older engines, I don't think the $3500 quote is any good after 2 years, but feel free to apply your wisdom to the other tech questions as users do look back for answers.

Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?

Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?
