The block will be made custom to you, not some SB that was assembled a year ago that was just sitting there waiting to be sold. Everyone there are grown adults without that "Bro" mentality, very professional. They are also one of the best shops for gear boxes. Thats what they were known for in the Rally world.
thanks thats all i needed to hear alot of people was telling me to go iag but luckily i did listen and buy right away and kept looking thats when i saw rallispec just wanted more info

IAG is a good shop too but since they started pushing out their blocks as a assembly line product i have seen more and more of their blocks being sold in the classifieds by members, so don't know whats going on. Also people posting having some small issues with them. Yes they offer a warranty but read the fine print. Sometimes that warranty is not worth the headache.

I think there are 2 reasons for this. Alot of it is people figuring out that their build are too much and they way a big turbo delivers the power is very different than what they thought it would be. and alot of people end up going forged cause they think its a cool thing to do but realize its not all its cracked up to be. kinda like having a really not GF and finding out the maintaince that goes into it is super expensive.

Warranties are good but the sending kinda sucks.

Rallispec does good work, and builds a nice block.
IAG does good work, and builds a nice block.
TiC (I'll toot my own horn) does good work, and builds a nice block.

GCH does not do good work, and does not build a nice block.

That should cover the sources discussed so far, and add a little more to the discussion.
