    Monday, September 24, 2012Hello, my name is Howard Buehler and I just got me a Tri-Star Engines new engine for my cliassc car. I would like to just take a few lines to give you some back ground on how I got to a need for a new engine.I have a 1970 Chevy Chevelle SS396 numbers matching car with an original Build Sheet to go with it. I have owned the car for 10+ years and have made many improvements both in appearance and the engine. I have won many car show awards and am quite proud of the car.This year (2012) in April I was ready to go to the Memphis Super Chevy ( I have won 5 years in a row) and disaster struck. The stud in the carburetor broke off and got sucked into number 3 cylinder. Cracked the cylinder block but it was repairable.I got the engine repaired and back in the car in late June and drove it 15 miles before disaster number 2 struck. The rocker on number 8 jumped off the spring and the valve broke off in the cylinder. Now #8 was cracked. No problem it was repairable.At this point I was really scared to put that engine back in the car. I had come close to ruining a numbers matching engine and that would not be good. I decided it was time to get a new engine and repair and save the old engine.I spent the next two weeks searching the Internet for engine builders when I came upon Tri-Star Engines web site. Right from the first visit I was impressed. First of all the building that Tri-Star was in was very large, new and modern looking. Next, the web site was very friendly and easy to navigate. I was very impressed with the many video tours of the different build stations – Crank, Block, Heads, etc… The machinery was top of the line and the latest technology was being used. Very Impressive. I found no other builder with as impressive as Tri-Star’s.Now to select the engine. As I looked at all of the options I was most impressed with Tri-Star’s Engine sizes and the horse power that they developed. I soon learned that they knew exactly what they were advertising they could get.My first call to Tri-Star was wonderful. Not only did they understand what I was looking for but were willing to work with me on some minor modifications to the standard build to get what I wanted.For my build I wanted to make sure this engine would fit in my car with no modifications. It did. We changed from a tall valve cover to a lower profile one. I also wanted the engine to be painted Chevy Orange. No problem. I also did not want to fool around with an electronic choke so it was removed from the carb. I sent them a crazy long list of questions such as will my power steering pump, alternator, fan and stuff bolt right to the engine with no problems. Each time I sent an E-mail or called about something I have an answer that day. When the engine was in the build process I was kept in the loop as what was going on each week. I was actually encouraged to call and talk to them.Well, the engine showed up and was exactly what I ordered. I got a complete engine ready to drop in and that is how it showed up. The plumbing for the carb was really very clean and impressive. The engine fit right in and started right up. The power is off the charts. The torque is amazing.Now, one thing I have come to realize. There are Engine Builders and there are Engine Assemblers. My old engine went through a series of engine assemblies. Everything the place I took that engine was a one off assembles. They did not do much machine work such as crank turning and balancing. They send that out to a machine shop. Here is where Tri-Star separates itself from the other guys. Everything is done in house. They build a lot of these engines. They Dyno them. They know what works best (carbs, intakes, etc…) and are able to get the numbers (Horse Power and Torque) repeatedly. I view Tri-Star as a true Engine Builder.I am very pleased with the results and the value for the money was the best that I found. I saw many engines of the same size and horse power for a lot more with essentially the same components. I saw some for less but no idea what was in them and it was kind of scary like buying an engine off a drag racer. Who knows what you’re getting.Oh, by the way the Better Business Bureau rated them very high which was just one more plus for doing business with them. If you’re looking for an engine then Tri-Star is a must for consideration.In conclusion, I am very happy with Tri-Star and my new engine. Now I am going to go out and toast my tires off.
