well i dont get the first guys problem. i have had bob work on a few different engines for me and with the exception of a minor leak (that he fixed) i feel he does great work. as far as pricing he is quite reasonable. i love the fact that he can dyno test what he builds not to many other engine shops can do that. between higher end shops that start at 10000.00 an engine and the lower that i wouldnt get a lawnmower engine from i think racing research is just fine.
