    Default Superior Automotive Engineering in Anaheim

    Anyone ever dealt with them? They come very highly recommended by a respected engine builder that I know, but I thought I'd ask here

    Seen them, have not used them.

    For my first build i used orange engine rebuild for the machine work, Jim is a nice guy. last i heard though his son was running the back and was slackin on customer service.

    After my last machine shop rebuild mess Contemporary Auto Machine is one of the shops i used and really liked the guys there. He even compared my summit dial bore gauges to his Sunnen gauges so that i knew they were right. he's a real nice guy, and came recommended by a experienced engine builder that has a pretty good name in the industry.

    An independent guy named Shawn used to tune Fords on Superior's dyno...I had him tune my blown Expedition a few years back. (Shawn didn't work for Superior, he just rented/used their dyno...he was tight with the owner or something)

    Was able to spend some time at the shop, shooting the shit with the owners. It looked like they did good work, based on the cars that were there at the time.

    I just dropped off the block this morning...impressive shop. It looks like a class act...incredibly clean. The owner gave me a nice tour of the shop and introduced me to everyone.... We'll see how things look when I get it back.

    All they're doing for now is square decking a block. Any idiot can do that. My main concern is their ability to follow simple directions and be observant and inform me of things I may have missed that might need attention

    In that area, Costa Mesa Machine is the only one I'd use. John wrote the book(s) on machine work. (literally, the Sunnen Books were written by John Edwards, owner of Costa Mesa Machine Amazon link)

    Wow I didnt know Edwards wrote that book, had him do some odds and ends for me over the past few years. He can be a grumpy guy but hes good at what he does.

    He wrote more than just that one...

    I like that he does what is asked, and doesn't try to sell anything else. And that it was done right, and on budget (I wasn't in a hurry)
