I have been dealing with Blaines for ten years. They have always had what I need for a price lower than anyplace in Arizona. yes thats right I live in arizona and only buy my engine parts from Blaines in texas. they can get me quality parts at prices the local stores here wish they could get. I don't know how they do it but I will continue to shop with blaines for my parts
You might consider Blains motor supply for your next engine build. You dont have to be a mechanic or a shop to get good patient service there. I looked at a few machine shops, and it seemed that they were competitively priced, and specialized in what they did. But more than often it turned out, that there prices didn??t include the details. In the end the price doubled, because the same price didn??t include the same package of services that are included in Blains pricing. Likewise the price of many things, were twice the price, because they were not telling me that they sent those procedures out to other shops, like Blains, that have the equipment and experience to handle it. I am sure you can have a good and bad experience anywhere. But Sean and especially Alan have been beyond patient with me, and my pile of miss matched parts, in an effort to build me a good engine for my restoration project. I found out that they are a family owned and watched over, and that the whole staff has many many years of experience between them. As to my engine I will let you know in a hundred thousand miles I hope?

Watchout for the ole Bait & Switch here. They quote one price then raise it $500 once they have your engine, stating its not rebuildable. They know you can't prove this over the phone and your just at they're mercy. I bet if you wanted to go down there to see it, they would show you a motor that truely is, non-rebuildable, how would you know? The point is, They will quote you the lowest price, then jack it up once your at they're mercy. They should stick with they're price that they quote, no matter what. Crooks !
Blaine's Motor Supply is the place to go for all your engine parts and service. Shawn is the best there. He is very knowledgeable of all aspect of motor building. He especially helps out racing. We started in sprint cars and now in drag cars...he helps us alot. The price is comparable with the industry.
