    As the title says I'm in need of a reputable engine builder and tuner. After my first deployment I put a GSR motor in my Crx. Long story short, not enough power and not enough money to boost so I stroked out to 2.16 and started to fit a nitrous kit. Then I got short notice orders to deploy to Afghanistan just after getting the engine back into the chassis. Now that im deployed and income is not an issue I want to boost and go for big numbers. Im hoping for the 700 range on q16. Any input as well as help finding a builder that I can have finish the engine while I'm gone and have my friend take it to for tuning would be greatly appreciated. I just want this car finished when I get home. Im located in Ohio, but at this point distance doesnt really matter for a good quality build and tune. Here is my current setup as well as some of the near future plans.

    I obviously have issues with making phone calls, if not for the 9.5 hour time difference from home, the horrible call quality over skype. A few builders have blown me off over this build and I want to find someone that is interested in helping me complete.

    Slowmotion Motorsports in Columbus. They are THE people to go to in Ohio. They've built quite a few record holding drag cars in their full on speed shop.

    They get pretty swamped especially during the winter when everyone wants to build for next season. If you ever get the chance I'd give them a call to make sure they get your situation and maybe get a direct email address for the future.

    I sent them another email, unfortunately with being 9.5 hours ahead of OH in Afghanistan and having poor ability to call back home email is my best chance.
