I don't even know where to start with this one. O.k... I blew my engine in May, had the engine rebuilt stock by the dealership, when it was finished I decided before it goes back into the car I wanted to stroke, upgrade the internals and turbo it. The only problem is I can't get any of that done. The dealership says they can't get the parts, the machine shop says they can get the internals but won't touch it, I haven't even tried to get a Haas turbo yet, so tempted to put the engine back in and a for sale sign in the window, I wanted this thing running by January so I can move on to putting the APR kit on thats been in my garage since April, if anybody knows of a shop that can handle the work and doesn't mind making a few bucks PLEASE let me know. This is past the point of frustration...

I've been thinking that way myself, I thought I had the Trial stage 2 kit ordered but when I went to go see how it was coming about three weeks later the guys at SILVERWOOD Toyota in Lloydminster said that they can't even get ahold of Trial, which I think is B.S. so I told them to go through monkey wrench racing, 2 weeks later samething, and I know Mat is really good at getting back to his customers, so then I said f@ck the stroker and just do the internals know their telling me that they can't get their hands on Darton sleeves, Crower rods or Wisco pistons, correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't this stuff pretty common?? I mean I've spent how many thousands there in the last 2 years and now the customer service has gone out the window!!! Its proof you can not build a fast car in Canada or Alberta anyway.
get a hold of WAR! He might know a good shop!!
