Default Crankshaft Grinding service

I've been talking/working w/ Empire Crankshafts in Elk Grove.
Mark has been configuring a new set up to be able to grind Subaru cranks.
I know there are only a small handful( maybe even fewer) of people that would need this done( me being 1 of them) .
All that is left for him to do is purchase the grinding wheel, @ a cost of about 1k,he'd be inclined to purchase it alot quicker knowing there is a need for this service. Anyone looking to have that sorta work done, please contact them & hopefully we'll be able to get this rolling .

It's a good service to provide as longs as it remains in spec. Can save people a lot of money having their crank re-ground. Ill keep this guy in mind
