Brent Lykins
« on: February 09, 2019, 07:53:59 AM »
Just getting around to posting about a very pleasant experience with Brent. He custom built a hopped up 390 for me over the summer. I have yet to install the beast, but can assure you he was a straight shooter, had an unbelievable attention to detail, and was always spot on with communication.

I was a little nervous at first ;shelling out considerable $ to someone I had never even seen before. But spoke with him several times and had a good feeling.

In the end it was a great deal and I ended up with what looks to be an awesome 390. It currently is sitting in the middle of my shop and almost looks TOO nice to even install in anything

Brent helped me a great deal with a recent stroker build. I asked him to pick a cam based on my other components and goals. He delivered on that plus was a great resource for answers to other questions that came up during the build. If he was local to me I would have had him build the engine.

   Brent is great to deal with . He got a custom cam for me that I couldn't get on my own. I am very grateful.

He's ok I guess.

Seriously, all of the above.
