"I spent a lot of time researching VW engine builders and finally settled on calling Darryl in the spring of 2011.  We spec'd a longblock for my 1974 Super Beetle convertible, I ordered it and patiently awaited it's arrival.  It arrived as advertised and well-crated.  The only scary thing is that the transport company somewhere had put a set of fork-truck forks through the crate...fortunately nothing was damaged.

All the reused and new components fit without many problems.  I installed the new engine and it started without any problems. I called Darryl asked for his break-in instructions and followed them...once again without a problem.  I've run the engine for approximately 300 miles and have adjusted the valves, changed the oil and put it in storage for the winter.  I can't wait for spring.

The whole experience working with Darryl has been entirely enjoyable.  He was always willing to answer any questions as they came up or just chat for a while about the project. 

I have been and will continue to recommend Darryl to any VW enthusiast I meet."
