Does anyone know any good engine builders in Melbourne, pulling my motor out in 2 weeks and know what pistons, rods and valves sizes i'm putting in but after a good respected engine builder to do the machining and balancing of the motor and crank, i'm doing 90% of the work my self, but machining and balancing i can not.
If any one knows a good engine builder in Melbourne particularly the Dandenong to Moorabin areas this would be greatly appreciated, or any where else that's ok.
Thanks in advance.
hey mate try gm motor aport in melton. alot of people from the western suburbs get there car done there other wise intech motorsport in werribee or Sass in hoppers crossing but he is a bit over priced
all should be able to look after your needs
higgins heads may also be able to aswell
Actually i dont think any actually are engine machinists (except maybe njc) theyre all tuners mechanics they have no knowledge (usually) of how to use/machine engine components. All they'll do is outsource to places like Dandy Engines then throw their bit on top
I suggest Dandy Engines My mates and i get all our machine work done there and asemble ourselves. theyve buitl plenty of fast drag cars and have a very good reputation

Foundamentaly all engine are the same work the same basic way. Just because Habib's down the road builds awesome rb30's doesnt mean he couldnt do an awesome lsx motor.
So what he requires is a specialist engine reconditioner with a proven history of doing high quality work not someone who specialises in lsx series motors

Yeh all good, dandy engines were mentioned to me, also my boss mentioned to day HSD (Eddie Wood) who has a very good reputation as well and has built race engines for my boss and plenty of machine work for him at another place he worked. As well as some other places in the area with a glowing report so will more than likely go to him.
talking to a place atm in the states about my set up and hopefully will have it sorted with in the next week or two then order parts and then of to the machine shop when parts arrive, engines out so just stripping it down to a bare block atm and the heads down ready to go.
will be going to Chev's for the tune, been happy with them when iv been down there and found them easy to talk to and deal with.
Well got my engine machine shop sorted, after pulling the motor down to a bare block and my rotating assembly will be taking it to Dandy Engines, spoken to a number of places including Dandy Engines a couple of weeks ago and they were the best priced and the only ones i spoke to open on saturdays which works well for me with work.
So now the real fun begins once i get it back.
