    Coyote and Transmission

    Kit is complete ready to ship, just waiting on Stewart Transport to pick it up in a couple three weeks and bring it to me.
    I am wanting to go ahead and order the motor and trans. Curious to get feedback from the group on Forte vs BluePrint.

    I got mine from Forte. Couldn’t have been more satisfied. He helped me through a few things I didn’t understand. Gave me his cell in case I had problems after hours. Great vendor.

    Well, if you're planning on a coyote, that sort of makes your decision for you as Blue Print doesn't sell coyotes (that I'm aware of).

    Got mine from Forte. He installed the clutch and bellhousing and the moroso oil pan. Very happy with his service. Got the transmission from him as well.

    +1 for Forte. Bought my coyote, TKO600, clutch etc etc all from him. Called him many times and he's always there for help.

    Not sure, but it sounds like Forte is the way to go. Haha
    I gave him a call earlier. Super nice guy and pretty sure I’ll be placing my order in a couple of days with him.

    Just to drive the point home. Forte.... After ordering from him, I have had questions and have called him up. He has had the right answer everytime.

    Order his hydraulic clutch kit while you’re at it.
    I didn’t buy an engine from Mike but lots of other parts and he’s a great guy!

    I 'think' Forte is a distributor for Blue Print, so can't go wrong either way.

    Another recommendation for Forte!
    Even if he doesn’t know the answer off the top of his head; he will find out.
    Great service.

    Another vote for Forte's here - However being the "skinflint make a penny cry" guy that I am, you may consider your build timeline... and order about a month before actual need.

    It really kinda hurt having a $10k+ lump of aluminum sitting in the corner of the garage collecting dust, instead of $10k+ sitting in a bank account making interest.
