Default What do you know about TRE racing engines?

I see they are running a sale and would like some feedback since I'm a Mopar guy thinking of looking at some GM stuff. Does anybody know if they're reputable?

All I know is there are a few of there cars that come up to our neck of the woods and race OTT5. The the guys running the TRE engines are no joke 4.90's-5.10's ~ 29.5/10.5 (no W's), 3400lbs, single kit and big block. Power is never there issue its driver error or chassis...other than that they are always in the hunt.









Thanks........

The reason I ask where he was at was to let a customer know who has used him in the past. We freshened up one of his big blocks in the past. All the machine work was spot on and it had good parts.
