    I’m looking to refresh my Ford Racing Aluminator and upping the compression. Any recommendations, I don’t mind shipping it out of state

    I wouldn’t let mpr touch a motor... l&m would be the go to for a modular motor

    are you mixing them up with mmr? I did a lot of digging on them before they built my motor and came across like maybe 3 people that had issues and 2 of them still used mpr again

    I will say this, Tim doesn't warranty anything. If it goes together and you have an issue the parts and labor will be on you.

    ModMax out of Florida. Those guys are awesome. I'm in Cali and during my build I'd hit them up for help/info/parts and they were very kind and helpful and know what they're talking about.

    ModMax? I didn’t realize they built motors too.

    Thanks for the recommendations guys, keep them coming.

    Anyone know if L&M will work with you if you already have all the parts for the motor and just need machine work and assembly?
    I know some shops only want to use their spec’d pistons, rods etc.

    Thanks

    I received a quote from them to refresh my current Aluminator motor, I’d says it a definite possibility. Give them a call
