When you have the rep of Tony, Brian, and the rest who work there, a little higher price (not gouging) keeps the wannabees and brokedicks away. It is also about controlling the flow of incoming work.A little higher on most stuff than here in Tucson,AZ area but most stuff in Indy is more expensive.........
Just the cost of running a shop is the huge part.Last time I went to get a block bored and have a sleeve put in I like to have shit a brick, that was almost 10 years ago, holy shit has machine shop work gone up and yes that is about the norm today.
Awesome if they can do it in a week.As in using it as a baseline to estimate engine work before going to a shop to get the work done?thanks.
ThisMy first engine builder let me help/watch him. I have to tell you, $327 to bore, hone, tap holes, cam bearings, freeze plugs, and wash is not a lot of money for the work involved. Think about the expense of the machines, electricity, and time spent....what are they making?? My guess is it would be hard for them to get $60 an hour on that job. Glad I didn't get into that field of work.
Thing is, BES does great work. When you pick it up its RIGHT! And you have vast amount if knowledge behind there work your paying for as well.As in using it as a baseline to estimate engine work before going to a shop to get the work done?thanks.
