Woody built a 408 for a friend of mine that has been nothing but awesome since day one. It's a small shop that only builds SBFs and has about a 5 month wait on anything assembled because they do good work.

I hadn't had anything built by them, I have heard that people had good builds in the past by them though.

I have a dart 363ci built by them and didn't have a great experience at all. Found a huge handful of cardboard chunks in the oil pan, lucky I watch my oil pressure gauge like a hawk always... Tore it completely down, checked everything a replaced all.bearings and re-ringed a brand new motor that was ran at his shop. Little bits of cardboard everywhere from the timing chain. Had maybe 10 miles on it before I noticed the pickup was getting blocked. I bought the motor new but it wasn't my build. Original owner got deployed when it was done which you have to get on a waiting list to have him build you one. I was in the market and the guy being deployed wanted money for his family and I was going to build the same motor compression wise and cubic inch and had heard all the good feedback on fordstrokers so it was done. I did contact Jim and made him aware that I didn't buy it from him but it was new from his shop and I have all the receipts and paperwork. He looked it up and basically said wow thats weird. End of story I went to LAM engines in Kenosha. Russ is a great guy and knows his sbf's. I will be going to LAM from now on. Motors all dialed in now waiting for spring to gets some street miles and some low 10's N/A hopefully

plus some juice later in the season

^^^Lol the Card board that was minced by the timing chain is what was ment. And still have no clue what it was from. Had pieces that were half dollar size as well as the tiny minced pieces that were stuck to every nook and cranny in the block. Didn't see the small stuff the first time in. So we tore the whole thing down and cleaned everything Mag'd everything ect...
