    Who should build my low compression S65 stroker motor?

    Deleted this as it just was not worded properly.

    I am going to speak with Alex in person next week and we will find out where we are at and how to proceed.

    My motor was built by VAC. They are pricey. But they can definitely do it right. However they did not do such a good job at first and had to redo some stuff for me. And they can take their sweet time.

    Honestly, VAC isn't too pricey. At least not for the N54 anyway.
    Sticky, hate to bring this up but, Gintani got bad rep and now you're trying to get your engine finished elsewhere? sounds a bit fishy, since they did bill you for stuff, as you say.
    All shops can move slow, but VAC is pretty familiar with that platform.

    I like this suggestion.

    Fall-line is no joke. Their shop is second to none.

    My first choice would be the guy that is doing HPF's motor builds, second choice would be VAC, third choice would be Evosport (even though I don't like their biz practices, they know what they are doing)

    DO not send it to VAC. If you want just the motor to be built, and you are supplying the parts for the build. Shoot me a pm.

    Bad rep? Huh? They never started the engine build and that is the problem, I need this done. Plus, I haven't seen the results of their engine builds.

    My primary concern is documenting this all for you guys and Gintani needs to improve on this front. Regardless, I think it is smart to look at multiple shops, don't you?

    Evosport is probably my first choice, but holy hell are they expensive.

    Definitely a consideration, Bavarian Solutions work impresses the hell out of me.

    I spoke with Evosport, turns out their source has worked on the motor builds from Gintani.

    I just don't have any hands on experience with them and have not seen any S65 results.

    I think they are coming but this brings up the documentation aspect that I find critical. Two built motors and no details.
