The time has come for a rebuild on the 7.4L Volvo Penta in my Carolina Classic. Anyone have any recommendations on where to get it done? I can get the engine pulled and reinstalled myself but am interested in any advice, good or bad, about any shops that yall have used or have direct knowledge of for the rebuild. I am in the Winston-Salem, NC area but do not mind some travel or shipping to get it done right. I am also not particularly interested in rebuild to factory specs either, as the 7.4L is borderline for that hull power wise and Id like to gain some with the rebuild, even if it means ditching the fuel injection and going with a carb. Ive found a shop in SC, Carolina Machine Engines, that offers a couple performance minded stroker rebuilds that sound like good options and seem to be reasonably priced, anyone have any experience with those folks?
