Recommendations for an engine builder in South Florida

Postby scobo » Thu Jul 09, 2009 7:26 am

Greetings, I would like any recommendations on reputable engine builders in and around the South Florida area, preferably one that can also dyno-tune the motor. I purchased an ex-Pro Stock motor (DRCE block, Pontiac heads, etc.) and am interested in a shop with experience on rebuilding this type of engine. Thanks for your help.

There is a fellow named Scotty that worked for Musi and is now doing engines in the Tampa area.Last name escapes me but I'll get a number.Maybe too far North for you but he does great work.

Progressive Racing Engines in North Miami

Postby scobo » Fri Jul 17, 2009 12:20 pm

Greetings,

I contacted Billy and he recommended I contact Progressive Racing Engines in North Miami. I will give them a call and discuss my engine needs.

I've also been in contact with Reher-Morrison in TX, I believe that they can handle the rebuild, but the cost just to get the engine out to them is $1200 (Fed EX). If you have ever shipped an engine with another carrier for a more reasonable cost please let me know.

Thanks again for your help, I really appreciate it.

How South, are we talking Miami or Ft Lauderdale?
There are very few left down here in Miami,
But a few hang on nonetheless
