Default Looking for Engine Builder

Looking for an experienced Engine Builder in Northern Utah. Considering the Brian Crower 2.71L Pro Series Stroker kit for my 07 STi. Well the Engine is out, I would be updating the Cams, Valve Springs, and Retainers as well. I need someone who would be able to answer numerous questions as far as specifics go. Also looking for an Accurate Price estimate on Machine work and labor. Thanks

For machine work I would recommend Pro Machine.

I second this. I called them when I was thinking about building the block in my 06 and they had all the answers I needed and prices were right where I thought they would be.

i would pretty much say he is going to be the cheapest in labor cost to get your built engine from a dream to reality.

Third Pro Machine. I have my block there right now for a bore and hone, and a lot of guys send their stuff to him so he knows his way around a boxer engine. Plus he's plenty cheap, only charged me $150 for the bore and hone.

If you have all the parts and just need the engine assembled I bet and would almost guarantee ( i can't speak for Ralph and his prices) but I bet he would do it for under 500 bucks if not under 400 if not cheaper and he is pretty precise with everything

I would talk to the Mad Scientist or Fuel Air Spark Technologies (F.A.S.T) Mad Scientist is amazing and F.A.S.T is the place that did Mitch Warrens head work on his 807whp STi.

I've heard of people talking of the "Mad Scientist" but how do I get ahold of him?

fyi. the mad scientest only does the port work and does not do assembly. you will still have to find someone to do that.

f.a.s.t. does assembly as well as port work and flow bench testing. the cost for fast to do a set of heads is ~80 more or less than buying a set of cosworth heads for the same amount of flow and work. its considerably more if you want a 800 whp settup like the one he did for mitch.

So Port and Polishing is going to cost $4-5,000?
