I am interested to see which engine builders you have used recently and your perspectives. If you could post how many seasons, application, hp and mileage. My AMS experience has been horrendous and absolutely miserable way to spend $65,000+ with them. AMS 3.8 long block - Alpha 9 Turbos - 3,500 miles bearing failure - AMS actually says with 820hp I flexed the block !!!! AMS 4.1 stroker with billet crank - oil consumption issue - 500 miles or less - AMS emails me after tear down one pull away from fried bearings and everything was within tolerance. On phone call on 04/19/19 Martin lets it slip bearings were fried. AMS 4.0 big bore, new sleeved block, billet crank - oil consumption issue - 200 miles went through 2 quarts. On break in, no boost and not even WOT. 4.0 and 4.1 did not have a single 1/4 mile run Three seasons missed.
Sorry I didn't see this till now. So sorry to hear brother.

Shops don't understand the frustration and time lost but not just time missed on use of the car but all the time involved trying to resolve this stuff. And not to mention the roller coaster of emotions.

If you send them the car, it should be on them. Actually hopefully they step up and cover everything.

Thanks man, yeah it sucks, but I've moved on and hopefully so have the issues.
Some people won't understand that just moving on and cutting your losses is a bigger relief than going through the same roller coaster over again.
