    I know a few have used them for drop in replacements, crank rebuilds, cylinder swaps, etc. I have not personally used them, but I haven't really seen any negative responses or evidence not to use them. Their 1 year no fault warranty offers some credibility as well.....

    Looks like they have a bad reputation. Cheap parts ? I was considering 1, because of the $. I usually build my own.

    Yep exactly, but it will cost more to build my own, but with quality parts like Wiseco.

    Polaris cylinders are sleeved with 2 exceptions. Use WSM pistons. Many have used them and they work just fine with Polaris motors. Wiseco pistons are an unnecessary expense.

    If you look at per capita with SBT, the people that had issues with there motors, you will always hear more from them then the 80%+ that have or still have there motor and no issues, just get the 2 year plan, or rebuild it your self, but you are right with the time and money spent, its your choice.
