I agree that you generally get what you pay for. My brother had DickSpeed out of Chicago build his motor andI think it is one of the fastest 1216 GSXRs in the country. It is a rocket and reliable to boot. 9.00@ 152, street tire, no bar, no N20.
One thing I like about Dick when you send your motor to him no minimum wage flunky will get his hands on it. Dick works alone and does top notch work. I have been to his shop and his attention to detail is remarkable. He fabbed his own jig for milling heads because he found that heads he got from other shops weren't milled flat.
