Has anyone had any experience w/ ATK engines out of Calf. I spoke w/ them today and they said they had a turbo v-6 w/ stock specs, long block for $1729. THis price was me keeping my core. Exchange was $1559. I also checked w/ "Grooms Engines". They have 3 models. #1 is all stock for $1895. #2 has a larger cam, trw pistons, and a double roller timing chain for $2495. I didn't check on #3, as I'm really interested in putting mine back together w/ stock specs.
Does anyone have any feedback on either of these companies?
Thanks, Jack

Some have had good luck with ATK engines...they are a mass produced engine and odds are that it will not have the right crank or pistons in it...on the other hand, some have reported good life from them in moderate use.

If that is Groom In TN, he has an excellent reputation building engines for Buicks over the years and I am sure that you get an engine with turbo components. I would ask about the crank and what kind of pistons, etc., he is using.
