There is no way to say which modder is better, Some modders make a lot of big flashy cuts and some modders make a lot of mods that you may not be able to see. I know EB mods does a very good job and he stays away from the big flashy cuts but does a lot to the engine you can not see (timing changes) The Idea of polishing engines has proven to not really boost performance but some modders still polish to highlight their work and the parts don't stay polished in the engine anyways.

Until there are industry wide agreed upon standards for RC engine performance standards for HP, torque and fuel economy there will be no way of accurately judging the effectiveness of any modders work.

I've noticed two strong engine modifiers in my area. Murnan and CEO. EB used to be big in my area. Now, the bulk of mod motors around here have been Murnan and CEO. They work well. I have a few Hot Mod motors and they work great!

I ran a freshly broken in TNT Mods OS .18TZ at the 2005 USMTC race at JCG's in Euless, Tx in my highly modified Revo and it simply ripped. I actually locked the tranny and ran an 1/8th clutch with a 17 tooth bell. Not even Slayden had anything on me on the track. (just wish I drove as well as him back then...)

Anyhow, TNT Mods is a very respectable company

IMO untill another engine builder can match the data, black and white numbers that Ed Bridges (EB Mods) dyno kicks out there is no competition. You show me another modder with a working, repeatable inertia dyno and I'll consider them a candidate.

ebmods.com

Pics of the dyno, mills, EGT (exhaust gas temperature) and cylinder temp probes, weather station, and honeywell crank balancer are all there to see....he's a mad scientist that alot of manufacturers use to test theyre engines long before releasing them. He's been in the business for along time.

Also if you see one modded engine out run another, it doesnt mean a pinch of poop...modding an engine is like buying a new car..there's so many options to consider, the biggest being mileage. If you have a fast ass motor and cant run for 5 mins, it wont do you much good on the track.

Seeing one motor or mod motor out run another means nothing. Their are so many variable it is not funny. Everything from tune to drivetrain friction have a huge effect on speed.

IMO most people do not need a mod motor. In fact, many people I have seen have posted slower lap times with mod motors. Many people like to have too much power and get slower with more power. But, if you can handle the extra power, more power to you (literally).
