Michigan Engine Builder - 02/27/17 02:48 PM

Well I decided while my entire car is tore apart to leave it apart until I have it all done. With that being said I am going to start looking for an engine builder in Michigan to build my "tribute" HO motor. I have block, heads, intake, and correct oil pan. I need those turned into a turnkey motor, that runs on pump gas and strikes fear and envy into the hearts of any passer bys. smile I prefer to find one in Michigan as I dont want to ship my stuff anywhere and want to see the person building it. Any recommendations would be appreciated.

"... a turnkey motor, that runs on pump gas and strikes fear and envy into the hearts of any passer bys..."

Dan Jenson is a well known Pontiac engine builder. This old thread shows him to be in Portland MI, and lists a phone number. Don't know if any of the info is still good, or even if Dan is still around & doing engine builds.

This might be him. Found the same landline number on other sites. If he no longer builds engines, he may be able to steer you to a good builder in MI.

There are some good builders in 3 states below you, who can build such a motor.
