I know nothing about Hesco, apparently they are a big deal in the Jeep world but.... Looking at the specs on their engines, its nothing spectacular....basically a bone stock rebuild with a crank. Nothing out of the ordinary on the machine work either....Thats for $5k.....Its basically a $1500 stock rebuild with a 258 crank and rods. The Golen states to have been fully balanced, resized rods with good bolts, Hyperutectic pistons, bored with a torque plate, Zero decked block, 3 angle valve job and light pocket porting along with machining the head for bigger springs, a custom cam and new lifters.....All that for $3500..... I would be willing to bet the Golen engine makes considerably more power and much more bulletproof.
