I want to build my motor, (low compression for B00st - TURBO) I want to drive the car to a shop an have them do the work, pull it out, TEAR IT DOWN, BUILD, put it back in, START it up, an i drive it out..

[:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)] This is concerning Motor build only[:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)] Turbo will come soon after

Time is no concern to me, i would want my car to be at the bottom of Whoever does its list. Maybe that would save me a lil money. But im in no hurry i just want it done Correctly. BUILT strong an ready for atleast 275-400whp. (Even though i know its tough to get that high)

The thing is there is nobody close to home i TRUST! There is one guy, the only guy i take my car to for ANYTHING! But i want *you guys opinon of him*

Hes a really well known guy with all the local stang guys @ my area.. The only reason id want one of our sponored guys to do it, is cuz this is what they work on. This is what they r used to, an ITS WHAT THEY KNOW. Know what i mean?

Im willing to spend the money in gas to drive it over to whoever from TX. I just want it built correctly.

The kits i want to go with are either a Xios, with up'd b00st, or Toms new DIY kit.

I guess the favor im askin is can you checkout this guys site.. An tell me what you think...

^^^ Thats the link... Tell me what you think, if not who else could i take it too?


THANKS! FF ROCKS [headbang]

It's really hard to tell without knowing the guy and seeing his work but if you have taken your car too him in the past and came out with good results then why not? Just have to make sure he can build an engine the way you want it, correctly.

Another option is to have Tom build you a motor and ship it to you, and have ^^^ that guy install it for you. Worth a shot, may be cheaper in the end who knows.

Click HERE for info on Tom's complete engine build. Try contacting him too to see of there are any pricing changes I don't think he updates that pretty often. Maybe he'll cut you a deal if you buy his Turbo DIY kit too [dunno]

If you really are that willing to drive somewhere. Come to SoCal. Xios is located about 35 minutes away from Focussport. Get your turbo from Xios and have Focussport put it in and tune it. BAM you are ready to go.

Granted it'll take a day or two I'm sure... maybe even more; and you'd have to drive all the way out here and all the way back.

I vote have Tom build your engine, he built mine and tuned my set up and its great. If he is willing to still do it, which it sounds like he is, go with the #1 ^^^

I shipped Tom my motor a couple months ago and it has returned. I am installing it this coming weekend.

If your in no hurry, I would def let Tom build it and tune it. It will be bullet proof!
