    SBT Engine Yea or No Way?

    Hey Guys,
    Need some input, I have a 1200 engine that needs a total rebuild-
    (crank,pistons,cylinders,heads,the works) after pricing all the parts,including
    boring cylinders, looks like i can get a rebuilt engine for almost the same price
    minus all the work of doing it myself. I have read mixed reviews on these sbt
    engines some say stay away(Junk) some are very good, so what do you think
    I should do??
    Thanks

    whats there price???

    maybe talk to Jay at Sharps he's been cutting some Great prices on his rebuilds or just have him do your crank and bore your cylinders and get the pistons and gaskets through him and see what it cost that way or have him assemble it too

    I've never had a problem with SBT. I've installed several of their motors with great success. As with anything remanufactured, there is the risk of failure. SBT DIES HAVE A BULLETPROOF warranty for one or two years depending on what you pay for. The trick is the warranty does not start over with the new motor. So if you buy a motor today, and blow it up 11 months from now, SBT will give you a new motor, but the warranty is only good for one month.

    Some people complain about "core charges". EVERYBODY charges a core charge. The core charge for SBT is steep. It's like 2k. But it's only applied if you fail to ship your old core back.

    Good luck, hope this helps!

    Depends what you want. It's been posted that SBT will reduce compression in an effort to maintain longevity of the engine.

    If you want all out performance, this is not the route to go for you.

    You can get a good look at a T bone by putting your head up a Bull's a$$, or you can take the butcher's word for it......

    Another vote for rebuilding YOUR core. SBT will get you back on the water, but, IMO, there are better ways.
