MO Rotary shops in KCMO area?

Hello! Next month I'm moving from ND down to liberty MO, excited! I'm just wondering, are any rotary shops in the area that can do tuning or rebuilding? Or what would be the closest?

I'm researching and trying to decide if I want to go FI and I'm trying to figure out how far I'm going to need to go in order to get a tune. If it's too far away I'm not even going to bother and will probably enjoy my NA for as long as it lives. Thanks!

Welcome to the area.
No rotary shops that I know of.
There's a place in south KC called London Motorworks that might know some rotary guys.
He was recommended to me once, but I never talked to him.
I've done all my own work so far.

I have a message out to my homie in KC, Grits and Gravy, to see if he knows anyone reliable....... ;-)
He once rolled 77 7s in a row during a game of craps...... LOL

I'll take a look and see what they know, thanks!

I'm hoping to do most of the work myself as well, but I will have to get help with the ECU and tuning which is why I want to get this figured out before I start.

I heard that the rotary expert from a local Mazda dealer has left the dealership . I wonder if he is on this forum and is interested in doing the work on his time. For a proper fee of course.

Or perhaps he just moved to a different dealership. No idea what his name is.

I'm in the area, been on here for almost 5 years and never heard any tech locally on the forum.
Best I can do is post #2, London Motorworks by word of mouth.

What kind of work do you need?

I was thinking of doing a turbo build soon, have been looking into it for a while, but I think I'm going to pass on it now. Planning on keeping the car alive and in good shape for as long as possible and when the engine goes out make a decision at that time.

Might be a good idea.
There are a lot of turbo threads, I'm sure It's fun to have, but I'm not willing to risk the money for it.

There's a shop in Neosho, and if you ever come across a rotary shop locally, please update us.
