Crawford has nothing to do with Georgie's/Big Valley car any more. That relationship died several years ago.

IIRC Georgie builds the motors. Whether he has the machine shop or if he sources it thats a different story.

Lol, you think building one of Big Valley's motors would be easy?


I remember hearing TurboTrix was building their motors, but that was last year...

Anyone can build their own motor but (IMHO) that's not the way to do it... find a machine shop that knows what they're doing and has a torque plate and you'll be set.

Find a head shop that knows how to port properly, your average machine shop knows nothing about porting heads even if they say they do...

Yes. It's an engine. I'd put it together like any other engine. Just because it's in the same car that has Big Valley on the side of it doesn't make it any harder to assemble than the engine in a car without those stickers.

Find out what race teams they support and you'll quickly find out what they know and what they don't. Very few machine shops exist that don't get most of their business from multiple race teams in the area.
