Has anyone had any luck with them? They are priced in the six to eight hundred dollar range which doesn't seem to bad for a fully function ready to pop in engine. I'm seriously considering going this route and any info would be great and any experiences good or bad with the dsmgraveyard guys?

Thanks

There are some bad stories out there about them. If all you want is a cheap, stock, shortblock, you can get ANY local machine shop to build up for exactly the same price. Then you don't have to worry about shipping charges.

I had a local machine shop screw up a crank of mine. Best part about the local shop. I can stand in their shop and complain. Hard to ignore someone right in front of you showing you what is wrong.

Order online and you just have emails and shipped parts later you get to go buy new stuff.

EDIT: Also support local shops. Meet new people who might help you out in the future :) Possible racing buddies.
