I contacted Bob at RCautoworks about their advertised pre-built block. He told me the price, everything that was included with it (Rods, Vitara pistons, oil pump, etc.). I agreed, sent the money, and we were off!

Their shop sourced a Z6 block for me and sent it to the machine shop for work. Bob constantly kept in contact with me with updates, and always responded to my PM's quickly. He even sent me progress pics as things were progressing on the block, way after normal work hours in some cases. Above and beyond in my opinion.

Once the block was completely finished he shipped it to me (which was already included in the original price). Yes, shipped it from the shop in Illinois to my house in central California. I received it on my door step last week, and I am very impressed with the quality of the work! The block looks top notch!

On with the pictures!!









On the stand already.


Without a doubt I am extremely satisfied to this point with the whole transaction and product. Bob and everybody at their shop have done a fantastic job. The customer service and communication was excellent!

This is the second transaction I have had with RCautoworks, the first being the no-slop shift linkage here: Shift Linkage Review

Don't hesitate to do business with them!

Will update this thread once I get the engine installed and running...

I believe that the site does explain the details on sending in a block to be done. You can't send him a trashed motor for rebuild. It has to be in good condition. Otherwise it will be rejected. I'm sure he does this to protect himself from legal issues as well as insure top quality builds. But you can't deny that the workmanship is incredible.

Known Bob and Brandon at RCAutoworks for many years now; actually just got off the phone with him to inquire about the rods/pistons they've been selling. Good shop to do business with!

Correct, the main reason we do it is we need a good solid core to start with. We do it so we don't have any issues in the long run, bent crank, out of round journal ect.... Its just better to start with a fresh block that has never seen any damage.

And thanks for all the feedback guys, we make the process simple, yes it cost some money but if you do the math and calculate parts and labor, the price isn't bad at all.
