So guys do travel to builders like that.A trip to Pat is well worth it.I don't normally recommend engines builders.

Still looking to have good priced 454's setting in the shop as parts/back-ups.I do think I would want to build my own Patrick Budd engine build engine setting in the shop as a back-up.Depends if I can find a decent deal on a good 454's.
thats great and all, but you are building a iron headed bbc to go 12's
your talking incircles about a 565? and "our" 632..
no idea what thats about.. but you are building a basic bbc to go 12's a 468 will be more than enough. and wouldn't even be breathing heavy..
isn't scott sharoff in your neck of the woods?
I've always had good luck with his stuff.. now if I build my 489 down the road, I'll have reids Engine Rebuilding-Automotive Machine Shop-MA,NH,RI,CT,VT,ME

machine it.. the 30 over and deck, and square .
as there will be no reason to go that far for a basic machining, unless you are going that far for cheap parts.. and I don't like what thats normally about..
