well i aint been around in awhile my 460 fell threw unexpected bills etc but i got a 400 that had a little work done to it an its been rodded to hell fixin to get a re ring an slapped back in. i sold my 460 which sucks so im fixing to start lookin for its next evolution. the 8.8 with 3.55's is gone its got a 3.00 9" right now under it. im tryin to get the dad to let loose of his 9" 3.50 posi. i still got quite a few 302 parts left so im in debate of radical 302 with a c4 or a mild 460 with a c6. get some gears in the rear. lol right now shes a 400 with decked heads an block gasket matched ports headers an a howards 269/.514 lift cam an a 600 holley and the best yet a granny 4 spd its what was there its basically just a tire shredder

Literally every post you made was negative lol. Obviously they can build decent motors or they wouldn’t be in business.

F-250 WARHORSE has a good reputation on FTE.F-250 WARHORSE has a good reputation on FTE.
These "builders" I wonder about. How did it actually run on the street? How long did it last? How did it start and drive? How much noise was the valve train making? These "dyno tested" stuff Lets put it in a car, and put it on the street, and put it up against someone that knows how to make stuff go fast, and have fun with it, and so there. The primary issue is that a well built engine might come at a lower cost fiscally but more time rather than throwing parts together that run OK on a dyno but can't for all good reason even drive around in town.
