    They are here in Vegas and the word around town is STAY FAR AWAY from their motors. If you're just looking for parts, they have good prices.

    I saw on E-bay once an ad of theirs talking about a CNC machine that trues up all their blocks before assembly. Did everything but main bore hone. Did deck heights, set the deck angle, even checked the lifter bores, all included in the price at no extra charge. Kinda sounded too good to be true to me????

    Be good, Jim

    A couple guys over on www.theturboforums.com are using their engines and are making over 1,000 hp with them with no problems!! Some guys have two years on them so far. Most likly the ones who blew them up are people who run a bad tune up and blame the engine builder......just my .02.

    I am curious about this CNC machine they claim is used on EVERY block.
    Anyone actually seen it???
    The prices do look decent.

    Be good, Jim

    I have used dyno-flo for quite some time now. I do not run their engines, but have purchased quite a bit from them, and did purchase one kit machined/ready for assembly. The measurements were true and consistant. Over the years I have done lots of work with them. Scot is a stand up guy. He knows his stuff and understands what it is to race on a budget. I have never had anything but great experiences with Scot. I have heard a few little situations where the front desk guys did not know exactly the part or shipped the wrong thing, but every time I have seen that personally, it was cleared up immediately. (Those things just happen.) He did call me when he first got the machine, and said it took quite a learning curve to get the machine programs and knowledge to get it running. I have not visited him since to see the machine run in person. I will do that in about 20 days.
    And his prices are absolutely the best I have ever seen on Eagle, JE, Mahle, Dart and a few others.

    From what I have seen and been told great deals. They run a pretty big add in National Dragster now and again.

    I bought the 565 Dart short block from them. Nice piece. I went up to Henderson and picked it up & checked out the place. 14,000 sq. ft . facility. First class. I haven't fired it up yet. Maybe 2 more weeks.

    I've heard both good and bad comments about Dyna Flow, but the same can be said about almost every big name production shop.
    When I first started racing, I was using a big name shop not far from where I live. What I found out is it's much better to learn how to build your own engines than rely on a builder. Bottom line is everyone is human, but if a racing engine builder makes a mistake, it will more than likely end up your problem. If I were to use them, or anyone else, I'd buy the engine as a kit and assemble it myself.

    I have had good and bad results from top drawer builders. Race motors are run on the bleeding edge, so there are going to be problems. What matters most to me, is how the builder treats me and handles those inevitable problems.

    After reading the links that had replys from DF, I would be hesitant to get involved with them/him. Some smart ass, unprofessional remarks. Perhaps those are rare, somewhat out of context, etc. Most were years old.

    Still, those things follow a businessman around.
