Talking UPDATED PHOTOS....Down the Road with another engine builder....

New shortblock for my 2011 STI. Goal is 500whp on pump 92 and 800 on E85 or race gas. Daily driven can with 9 second time slips on drag radials, while being full weight with 200 extra pounds of sound deadening and stereo system.

So I sold my old S&R Performance shortblock to a member here and lost my shorts but I had no confidence in the block and the thread was pretty well known.

So I finally chose a new builder in ASF Machine out of Grand Junction, CO. - Owner Joe Hanna

I talked with Joe for about a month before pulling the trigger and going with him over numerous other builders. Many conversations via email, phone and text. My goal was a block that could hold 800whp reliably. One of the things that bothered me was not having any documentation regarding the tolerances. Now I have pics and documentation of the tolerances, which makes me feel so much better and confident. This shortblock is being paired with Joe's stage 2.5 heads and intake combo which I will have pictures of shortly.

Below is a list of what is going in the block.

Seasoned block halves
Darton Sleeves
Shuffled pinned mains
Copper O Rings
Spin Balanced Nitrided Black crank within .2 grams
Ross FSR Pistons (393 grams)
Carillo Rods (forgot the grams)
ACL Race Bearings
ARP +625 aged bolts
Forgot the name of the rings
Here are some pics below.

I would love to hear your thoughts and any questions you might have.....
Fuel system and turbo are coming soon with recommendations from Joe H.

Best of luck with the new build, I have been talking with Joe a bit over the last couple weeks about different options for my motor(it's not going to be nearly as nasty as yours) and he seems great over the phone. At the very least I plan on sending him the rotating assembly for a dynamic balance, after seeing some of the picts you posted I am pretty sure that it was the same pict of your crank that was posted on FB showing that he performs that service so I knew to ask about it.

After dealing with Joe I wouldn't hesitate to give him all my engine work from this day forward. It is wonderful knowin there are professional shops out there doing this level of work. You are correct there are many pics on facebook that are from this shortblock and actually some of the top end pics as well....

Joe and I have been working for the better part of 6 months on a fantastic build in my opinion.....His knowledge has been instrumental in my choices....

I forgot to mention in my original post that I live in Vancouver Washington and have done my dealings from afar.....It really helps to have a builder that will convey such confidence that they seem to be right next door....

I am not sure if English Racing is going to do the kill tune....What are you thoughts and opinions here....Tim Bailey is in town from Cobb Surgeline and John Reed from John Reed Racing (Underground TT Lambo's 1000-2000whp) if he would make an exception for me...

Any of the 3 are great choices.
