i have had mine for a couple months now. It has piston slap on cold starts, but other than that it made it through a dyno session at 410 whp. so far its good. but i would recommend an axis block instead. they are 100% proven and the gruppe-s' aren't really proven that much. Mine is ok now, but who knows in one month. don't cheap out like i did, if i could go back i would buy a axis block.

i believe they dont use new blocks, they use used blocks.
i have no idea if that is bad or not but if i was building a block i would want to start with a fresh block.

I wouldn't recommend buying a block from them BUT they did sort everything out afterwards very professionally. They did 'right' a 'wrong', I will give them that & I know that no engine builder is perfect.

I have a short block from them I just bought on sale when they moved to their new building. I have not installed it yet. Is there anything you suggest I check before I install it?
