What are some of the better shops around the Phoenix area that will install an aftermarket longblock?

Goodspeed and Dynocomp will do it and both shops have been around for a while. There are other shops around town but I can't personally vouch for that level of engine work with any of them. Of course you will not have any kind of warranty from a shop with an engine they didn't build, just a heads up.

Providing the longblock yourself? Or looking to purchase + install?

Call Snail Performance AZ / RAworx. Snail @ 623-518-3462 and RAworx @ 754-800-9679

Both are SWIC OGs.

Goodspeed no longer installs supplied blocks. I'll have to call Dynocomp.

Leaning toward providing it myself. I can reach out to Snail. Is RAworx where Rich is at?

They're in the same building, Taylor offering Parts Sales + Tuning, and Installs / Maintenance through Rich in the shop.

Nobody around these parts builds a sensibly powered custom blocked DD and
safely drives it around for one hundred thousand miles to then come back here and talk about it. It's all ringland this... spun bearing that - OMG the police!


+1 Recommendation for RAworx and Snail Performance

Old body, new parts - I had a refurb'd turbo, power steering upgrade, suspension parts, exhaust, steering wheel install and then some done by Rich, afterwards was tuned by Taylor. A year plus later, everything is rock solid and performing well. Accommodating to work with, all around.
