Hi all,
I have been doing a lot of research on a 2.5L engine rebuild and have come down to either Ron Checca or Turner Motorsports building the engine. Ron Checca is more expensive but you know that it will be pure quality while Turner is farely inexpensive for what you get. I want a stage 3 head, Evo II cams, and motorsport valve springs. I would like to know a couple things...
1.) It says on the turner motorsport engine page that with a stage three head and a 2.5L conversion kit, you can reach 285HP. Is that completely true and how is the quality of Turner.
2.) How would the engines compare in HP and Torque between Ron checca's engine and Turner's engine.
3.) Would I get more parts if i went with Ron?
4.) How would the prices compare.
5.) If you buy it from Turner, does it come with the stage 3 head, the crankshaft, and the cams on the engine already or do you have to pay extra for that?

I would greatly appreciate your help!!! Thanx
