    After lots of looking around for my 355 build i used both Neil at southside engine centre and also Pete at applied automotives. Both gave great advice and quick work.

    I was secretly hoping this would turn into a 'non-recommended engine builders in Perth' thread. From my experience, unless you're building LS motors, it seems you're gunna get bad service in the west's capital. Kal may be different.

    I went regional for my 355 short. The guys I used had efi, carbied and 6/71 blown examples in the carpark and the showroom. Don't underestimate enthusiasm in your engine builder. They also talked me into COME over Scat despite the similar prices.

    No it's Redbeard on here sometimes.I wasn't going to put the address but even in a small town like this it's supprising how many ppl don't know where we are.As for engine builders,he's going to build our 383 for our cruiser & we have a very wide choice of who to get to do the job.He's our choice.

    i have heard nothing but praise and great comments about redbeard and his work, id be more than happy to drive the 600km to get mick to build and engine that drive 10km to get some of the halfwits around here to "build" one. i know of a few performance shops that have taken blokes that dont know better for a ride. spose it really comes down to research.
