I just went through a really poor experience with a local machine shop so I'm in a bind and need a short block for my project. I'm considering a mail order short block as an option. I'm just looking to do a hci 302/306 with an Anderson n41 cam, TFS 170's and an RPM 2 intake in front of my T5 with 4:10's. I heard to stay far away from DSS and saw that overall CHP seemed to have a positive reputation? I did some digging and it looks like they moved or have new management? Has anyone dealt with them recently since then whether good or bad? Any other places to look into? My other option is to try and find a decent Explorer engine in a junkyard and re-ring and bearing it.
