Carolina Machine Engines

Post by irocblu »

www.cmengines.com
has anyone ever used or heard of these guys before? checked around locally, no luck. hard to find engine builders. looking on the net found CME, price was great. found one post on another club forum, ok review. did search for problems with them, came across BBB listed 2 faults one was resovled and none in the last 12 mons. sales rep give me a price of $1096, $1621 shipping with a different cam, for more torque, choose of exchange core or build mine same price. I'm going with mine.
