hey guys ive got a spare (blown) motor from my svt and im thinking of biulding it into a boosted beast, granted its in good enough condition to do that. Whos hands is the best to leave my engine in to be biult the right way for boost and how much do yall think i would be looking at? the engine will actually be disasembled (so i can see what caused it to blow, i know 2 plugs were completley demalished) and see what in the head is going to have to be replaced or if the head is even any good. thanks.

i think any experience engine builder can build you a good engine. Tom knows what works best on the focus cuz he's done everything with them so if i was to pay for one i would certainly to to him first.

After my last build... I'm doubting my abilities..... OK maybe the beer had something to do with it..... [hah]

My first choice would be Tom, and second would be Mike

That's not a lot at all if you think about it. for 3500 plus say about 6k for turbo and tuning. and you can really pick up and go.... try that with any v8
