Don Loughlin Engineering in Hartlebury has a good reputation. SPGti is using him to build his new engine. He made a lovely job of my Mi flywheel too,

Thats interesting as I'm having the same built for mine, though not by the above mentioned company. Not sure we will see quite as much power as yours , expectation is about 210bhp.

Yep Don at Hartlebury, been building engines since the 60's and has been involved with quite a few high power XU engine builds. The only problem is he is always very busy.
