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.

It is entirely possible I have forgot something but if I think of it I will send another email.

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.
That is who I purchased my stroker kit and other parts through, unfortunately they have been reluctant to reply to any of my emails. I guess ill try again.
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.
