He's not in Oklahoma but the beauty of interstate shipping means you can pull your engine and send it to RotaryResurrection (in Tennessee) for a rebuild for a hair over what a local place would charge for just labor alone.

Other than that, bump, maybe some of the Oklahoma locals can pipe in.

Also: Your location mentions Augusta, GA. You should update it so when the locals pipe in, it's relevant to your specific location within the "OK area". It's a big area.

Cheers

Ryan

Gotta love Fort Sill. I presume that's what brings you to Lawton from Augusta, GA? If you're on post, head down to the auto skills center on Ringgold Rd past the RecPlex. You can have that engine out of the car within a few hours. It's one of the better auto skills shops in the Army.

Also, you're only about 3 hours from Dallas. I know there are board members from DFW that can point you in the right direction around there.

Should you choose RotaryResurrection, you'll be getting a rebuild to a very high standard. In my opinion, it's worth the round trip shipping to send it to him.

Good luck either way.

Brad at RIP in Moore rebuilds engines. I can't vouch for any of his work but i've been to his shop and it seems legit. He seems like more of an RX7 guy but i know he's rebuilt some renesis engines as well.

Rotary Inspired Performance moore ok
