Default thinkin of getting an engine modded

i have a worn out ninja mr21 that i love. i was thinkin have sending it out to have it modded but i have a few questions. first off who does good reliable work? i'm lookin for someone i can talk to on the phone tell them what i run and what i'm lookin for. then they can tell me what would b the best mod for me. second when they do the mod does it resize the sleeve as if it was new again? also does the mod include changing of the engine bearings? thank u for any info that anyone may give.

Alot of modders wont do used motors, I will mod one if it measures out fine, my experience with the Mr Ninja is the cranks usually last a long time but most will need a rod. I can also resize the sleeve so it will be like it was after a gallon on it and change out to Tko ceramics.

You can call me at (507) 824-2011 after 4pm central

That would be something to ask Mark at Powerhouse as he has extensive knowlege of the GRP engines. I have a mill from both of the mentioned modders and cant say anything bad about either. Powerhouse may be alittle easier to get ahold of though, but I could be wrong. 9 times out 0f 10 your gonna want to get a PSR set and have it modded and the other day at the track i was talking to mark and he was talking about your exact dilemma, with some of the deals out there right now you are probably better off just getting a new mill and getting it done up. Online shops with the cupons and what not ect.

+1000 on Mark at powerhouse. Give him a call and tell him exactly what you are looking for and what pipe you are running and he will dial it in perfectly. I have had several modded engines from Mark and the work was always perfect. The engine came to me just pike I had ordered it. Every time I called Mark he spent more time with me on the phone than I would expect and he is very concerned that the customer is happy. I highly reccomend Mark at powerhousercperfoemance.com
