I need to have some engine work done. Has anyone used or have comments on VW Performance on 3865 N 38th Ave, Phoenix, AZ 85019?

I need a long-block 1600 or 1776 that is reliable and build well. Too many shady places and builders out there. It is like all the VW places dried up years ago.

My current engine 1600 got a case leak and ran it dry Sad Got a donor 1600 long-block motor for free, but it also needs head work and has a case leak.

I am looking for suggestions on who and where I can get a quality rebuild or have my engine rebuilt.

The guy Steve Hollingsworth of VW Performance appears to know his stuff and has some creds online, but would take 3 months+ to get him to rebuild my engine.

Yeah not too many places out there anymore. Have heard good and bad things about Dougs, Buggs and Bunnies in the east Valley. I build my own so I wouldn't personally know.

on VW Performance .... Well if I ever need Air cooled work done I would used VW Performance or Competition Engineering 480 649 4259..

VW Performance:
I have heard that he is kinda slow but his work is awesome.

Competition Engineering:
Awesome work but pricey. I would not take my Carburetors to anyone else!

Dougs Buggs:
Have heard good and bad things Too about them.
