well after alot of research and checking with the bbb i found out blueprint engines aka marshall engines has some very very bad reviews..so i decided to but a 331 liberator stroker motor from fordstrokers.com... after talking with them and alot of research and checking up they really seem like they know what there doing.. only time will tell though.. only downfall is the turnaround time ( about 3-5 months) but that has to be a good sign... right?

3-5 months sounds a little long, but then what are they doing and are they backed up with other work? Maybe post their address and ask a member in the local area to go check them out. I know if someone needed me to check out a shop locally, I'd do it. Save time, money and possible grief for them. :tup:

My machine shop is very backed up. I've had a set of heads in there for about 4 weeks now. Manager said they had a couple guys retire and have decided to not replace them for now. That's a lot of knowledge to loose and just not having a couple senior guys like that in the shop can slow things down. They are still cranking out very good work though.
