    Default Best engine rebuilders brisbane

    Hi guys,
    i have a tired 351 Cleveland which Iím persisting with in a 72 mustang. Leak down tests suggest it is tired. It has 4V heads. Iím interested in a genuine rebuild to bring it to life with a bit of extra power but nothing ridiculous.

    I know now very little and I donít have bottomless pockets. Anyone recommend honest good value engine rebuilders in Brisbane.

    Thanks

    Adam

    I know a few people around Bris and GC... In Brisbane you cant go past uncle Pete at HPE, he loves the Fords if you call him make sure you say Paulie said that...

    I have another mate that now does engines from home, sort of a semi-retirement deal after 30 yrs doing engines thats Paul at MAD racing he is inbetween brisbane and the GC boonah way... Let us know your budget, what sort of power you want around 400 and 6000RPM something?

    The tremaynes are up Brisbane way now, I think they might be able to sell him an 1100@10800rpm engine... Its price on application though

    Thanks Paulzig. Is HPE "Horsepower Engineering in Secam St in Mansfield?. I couldn't find anything else with a google search of HPE. If it is, that's just around the corner from me. The car probably has 280hp at present. I'd like to do an honest, fairly stock rebuild with a bit of extra grunt (400-450?) I've had stroker rebuilds suggested. Budget would be $6k or south of that if possible but I have no idea how much these things cost. Thanks again. Adam

    Yeah he's on Secam st... 6K a lot of that is going to be eaten up by machine work and labour if you are doing a full rebuild so it will be a mild 400-450 deal keep the engine all original dont be tempted to go to the 2V heads, its a genuine 4v car keep them no matter what, but yeah go see have a chat... A stroker build will cost more..

    Ok thanks guys. Legends. I'll go have a chat and if its something I've got to save for then so be it. Most important thing for me is finding someone I can trust and you've provided good recommendations.

    Comes as a surprise, the timescale might be due to injury, things going wrong, then the work piling up or family issues but the other stuff like expensive and disappointing I cant see, or trusting his word...
