Guys that have sent off their 3.0 to be rebuilt
 
Any recommendations on people or shops? I am in need of a rebuild on my 3.0 (broken head studs). Any advice on shops or people- looking to have it done once and want a quality end result. Thanks.

Where are you located? For LA or the surrounding areas, TLG or TRE are two popular shops that have a good reputation - no affiliation to either shops.

kc911s 02-22-2018 03:44 PM

I'm in the Midwest- we don't have that many shops locally. Considering sending it out to have the work completed.

I'm sure that one of our members will suggest something closer to you than having to ship it to CA. Best of luck!

Lyle O 02-22-2018 07:42 PM

Give us a nearby city to home in on. You gonna truck it over yourself, or do you want to ship it? There are really good shops in the mid-west, too...

I'm in Kansas City.

3.0
 
Are you going to freshen it as an updated stock engine or make changes ?

Try BHR at 29th and Holmes. I've known Aaron for years. He's a good guy that really knows his stuff.

kc911s 02-23-2018 07:33 AM

I'm not a fan of Aaron- would rather not have him touch any of my stuff.

Looking to get some more power out of it while they are in there.

have you tried rennsportkc.com?

kc911s 02-23-2018 09:01 AM

Yeah- was hoping to not have to get in line with Karl. They have a pretty good backlog.

And I'm pretty sure they try to keep the rebuilds over the winter months.

Shipping is easy and rather inexpensive, specially if you ship it to the right builder.

kc911s 02-23-2018 12:13 PM

That's what I'm hoping. Only concern would be damage to or from builder.

sixbanger 02-23-2018 03:11 PM

Might ask Kevin at K&H auto and see if he would. He by Johnson drive and Metcalf. Or if you know Jim Kundif you could ask him. I have no good things to say about Mark Journey. Where in KC are you. Feel free to PM me.

What about Bob Hindson?

That's the BHR I posted earlier. My friend Aaron bought Bob out several years ago when Bob retired.

That's a bummer, but I understand. We've been friends since '95. He had recently started at BHR and I was at Vee Village.

Ah, I missed that. I was unaware Bob retired.

Someone mentioned Bob Hindson Racing?

They smashed up someone's brand new GT3 RS last year during a joyride...
