I just got my 2110cc installed in my 63. Man, this thing is awesome! Still going through the break in, but quick shifting at 3500 this thing barks 2nd!!!! Chico is a man of his word and it was an absolute pleasure dealing with him on the whole engine build. When he sounded busy or said he would call back, he took the time to do so. Try finding that with some other builders out there. Chico delivered every thing and more (quality, time, etc.) with this engine. - subhuman
Chico built us the 1776 turnkey and it's awesome! Aside from the quality and craftsmanship, the motor was delivered early and his customer service is outstanding. Anytime you put a brand new motor into a 37 yr old car, there are going to be some quirks. Chico answered every single one of my calls and gave me precise and accurate answers without fail. Nowadays customer service calls for major companies get answered in India. Chico is good ole fashioned USA honesty and integrity. Bottom line is if you want the best, call my friend Chico!! - Virago Dude
