I need to have my tii engine rebuilt (blown rod bearings & oil pump) and I just don't have the tools, space or equipment to get it done. Can anyone recommend a WELL VERSED 02 mechanic/shop within 50 miles of the Bay Area?

I know there are a bunch in L.A. but I don't feel like hauling the car all the way down there.

Thanks

Enrico

Schatz and Krum in Sacramento is very good. Talk to Stu, the owner. He has raced 2002s for many years and built countless BMW and Porsche engines. Great guy, and a great shop.

from the car club. Give him a shout and see what he can do and I'll ask around at a few of the shops I have buddies at and see if they can take on a rebuild right now.

If you're pulling the motor and reinstalling it then you've got a great selection of shops, and it's cheaper.

If you're looking for a full service shop then there are fewer choices.

If I had enough $$ I'd go to Motorspeed West in Santa Clara 408.727.6631 and have them do the R&R, but I'd send the motor for rebuild to Terry Tinney at Performance Motors in Livermore 925.447.1820

Terry is reasonable, but his work is exceptional. Jeff Hecox (the Service Manger at Dinan) uses Terry exclusively for his 72 racecar. Jeff was the Vintage 2.5 Challenge Champion for 2002 with this car.

And Terry has some very cool window stickers!
