Trustworthy Engine Builder 2015 ???

Hey guys, I am looking for a Trustworthy shop to have a high HP 2j built here in Houston. Anyone know of one? If so can you tell me what your experience was like with them, etc. Thanks in advance.

3 of the 1000hp supras live and breath in Houston. Also this month's super street says which shop built the bottom end of the gs300 's 2jz but it was in Dallas

Scroggins goes great work. They are certainly not the quickest nor cheapest shop, but you can't argue with the quality of their work. I had them build the bottom end and heads on my LS1. They called me in before making any decisions or performing any additional services that were not agreed to up front. The only issue I had is that I was charged for head bolts for the torque plate honing process because they did not use my head studs, but we were able to work it out by adding additional scope to split the difference. All in all, a great experience!

Thanks for the advice guys! I'll look into it. Time isn't really an issue. I'm just working full time and going to college full time so I don't have time to really invest in building it. Also you get what you pay for so if they're trustworthy and get the job done well its good for me.

Hmmm, I may have to drop by the store and pick that issue up. Thanks!
