Clockwork Mods does All my motor's......i cant think of when the last time was i ran a stock motor.....Overall if your serious about racing it might be something to look into...but if your just playing around a modded motor isn't exactly Needed.......but if you want to blow the doors of a buddy's car a modded motor is a quick ticket to that.

I am an engine modifier. I specialize in all engine brands and can custom tailer your engine to improve performance on various levels whether you are looking for improved fuel milage, lower running temps, increased powerall aroundor all of the above. I can increase throttle response or smooth an engine out if you need it tobe smoothlike an electric motor. There are many reasons why someone would want to have their engine modified as everyone has a different need and it is up to the customer to decide exactly what he would like that particular engine to do. You will hear alot of opinions but it always comes down to what you want the engine to do for you!! Just because the engine is "modified" doesn't always mean it is an overpowered beast that isn't needed in most situations. It simply means it is altered from stock to perform to a specific application thatis desired by the customer.In the end, you are ultimately the decider on how your particular modded engine will perform for your desired application. Do your homework and talk with various modders and go with whoever you feel will give you your desired outcome.

I'd be curious to know how many pros run "modded" motors. My only reason to run a modified motor would be for runtime. I keep hearing that modified motors get better runtime.

To be honest the way the engine is maintained has more of an effect of engine life then anything. A modified engine when done properly will run more efficiently and have just as long of a life span if taken care of and not over reved and abused.
