murnanmodified.com
abmods.com
rbmods.net

I would go for either of these, they are the best but I don't really know much on RB Mods. Murnan and AB have the most up-to-date skills and their work is second to none. Sure you could go for someone else, but do you know how good their work really is?
I mean I modify engines myself, but I would never say Im better than the above. I can get an engine work faster, better and maybe more efficient depending on what I do, and I charge a lot less, but I can't back it up like they can.

Dj very valid point. But after speaking to a few mod guys. I went with maxy cause someone who used him and another said maxy was better. Also maxy balances the crank which alot of these guys do np add. Plus alot of these mod guys get the engines for alot cheaper then we would stock so maybe that's y price is lower.

But u can't lose either way. Your local track has to have a modified engine. Speak to the guy with it

Well actually, my 'home' track actually pretty much only requires an engine that runs well! No need for high end power or efficiency, as long as it moves the car and lasts 6 mins it is good enough to win as long as the car is setup right.
I had a modified JLR Red Dot, and that thing was ballistic!! ...well, when it was working Even the stock JLR was powerful as hell! Kept up with Nova's and caught up to them in the straight - meaning A LOT faster speed at the end!
Now I have an unmodified RB T10 (as it says in my sig) and that runs extremely well, and now that my car is very close to an optimal setup, I know it can be the fastest at my track, I just have to work the corners better and get a little more rear grip.
All engine modders are good, and it can depend on how much you are willing to spend and how long you want to wait. If it's local, go for it, but be certain he knows what he is doing.
