Side note, where at in RI are you? I'm from Newport (born and raised) but now live in MD... I'll actually be heading up for a week around memorial day holiday (the big .gov approved my leave for that holiday!)

On their website. Just the short block is $5,000. Kind of pricy.

Back in the '80's we used to race late models (asphalt circle track). I had a couple $12k 358 sbc's that didn't make the power that this does.

If the 326 is too much dollar-wise, Brenspeed also sells the internals for a forged 302 - all the good stuff, Kellogg crank, CP Pistons (made by Carillo - ever heard of Carillo rods? Some of the best made), Manley rods. But then you are looking at a lot of machine work and assembly cost.

Pretty much anyway you cut it, a forged short block isn't cheap, no matter where you get it.

I have been looking around and gathering info on them along with reputation of the source. Not putting down Brenspeed in any way. However JDM Eng and MMR performance sell forged short blocks with all top of the line stuff. JDM is about $4200 and MMR is $3300. All im saying is $5000 for a short block is pricy compaired to others out there that have just as good a track record.

MMR does not have a good reputation, sorry. JDM has had their problems in the past as well. DSS racing is another builder and they aren't without engine failures either.

Every engine builder has had problems. Its all in the perception and how a few people post crap about them. MMR from whatvi have found has made good stuff. JDM IMHO is the best on the east coast. I have beat the snot out of my setup which they built. NO ISSUES. People should not state negitive crap unless they have facts not what they read on the internet. I go by people who had personal experance with a builder or tuner. Not he said she said.

What experance bad or good have you had with MMR , JDM or Brenspeed for that matter?

My point with my post was not putting down Brenspeed just that they are pricy and other alternatives are out there that are just as reliable / durable.

Compare apples to apples when talking price. The JDM & MMR prices cited are not for326cid strokers built with new Boss 5.0 blocks. MMR has the option for that but it costs $1200 extra. Also, to have the same quality internal parts as the B326 it costs extra.

Once you compare like to like, the prices are pretty much the same.

I've never bought from jdm, but I've read plenty of posts by them and I don't like their attitude towards customers with problems.

MMR, what can I say, they have so many negative stories that it's staggering. I'm surprised they are still in business. Are all the failures their fault? It really doesn't matter to me, because i'd never buy an engine from them to save a few grand.

I did not mean to start a big debate about which engine builder is best. Just sharing my experience, which was great. Like I said, there may be other short blocks out there that may be just as good and/or cheaper. I have nothing against JDM, they build some good stuff and I have dealt with them before (and they are alot closer to me) - but there is no replacement for displacement, which is why I went with a 326.

I am totally satisfied with the B326 build, just as I have always been with everything I have gotten from Brenspeed. This was the first time I ever had them install anything, as I usually do it myself. But when it came down to installing basically a whole brand new engine, I just don't have the facilities anymore to do it (plus this is my daily driver and I can't have it down too long). Great customer service is rare these days, and Brenspeed has always delivered for me.
