I have really tough choice to make.
I have already made my decision and sent money to built engine to Doug but money was sent back by Doug's bank because of some wire transfer mistake. So some would say that is a sign...
In the meantime I got offer from Cicio to built 1300 whp racing engine. I don't know Cicio in person but found only good opinions about his company and service, so it looks like he is top GT-R specialist in USA. Doug is also reliable but some people advice that Cicio is the man to go with.
And now here is my alternative:
I used to be motorcycle racer for several years. I won some Championships in Poland and in Europe for YAMAHA ARAL Racing Team. My best racing partner from Yamaha later started racing for Porsche (won endurance races) last year has won Lamborghini Blancpain European Championship. He is also owner of best tranny service in Europe and has that special gift from God - superb mechanic skills, never met in my life anybody like him with such a great feeling of engines, suspensions, etc... His name is Teodor and he is willing to help me built the fastest GT-R in Poland. He has a friend who is great engine mechanic - builds racing engines for Porsche, BMW, Mercedes and other brands but never GT-R. Teodor is saying that he and his friend can built tranny and engine without any problem. Teodor is DODSON dealer. Tranny built by Teodor would cost me 11000$, same tranny from Sheptrans is 18000. He is assuring it will be as good as engine & tranny from USA or even better because they will do it for their friend as a kind of hobby & challenge.
I understand that Cicio and Sheptrans have years of R&D but is it worth 7000$ in case of tranny and about 7000$ in case of engine? That makes total 14000$ more expensive building engine and tranny in USA than by my friends.
I kindly ask about opinions experienced GT-R owners who are familiar with engines and tranny construction / issues / tricks. No offense to anybody but I'm wonder if GT-R engine and tranny construction is different than other moderns engine / tranny constructions in the world?
Please show me the light in tunnel because I'm stuck between USA and Poland
