Looking at getting my motor rebuilt on my 2015 XM 163 T3 with an Impulse turbo. Wondering if any of you guys have experience with certain shops or recommendations on which internals to run.  Looking to build a reliable turbo specific block. Im leaning heavily towards SHR for the build. Thanks!

I don't think you could go wrong with BJ.  I am freshing up my top end in my 12 Turbo Etec with some dual ring ProX piston from him this week.  I have 2300 miles on mine, crank runout is dang near perfect and the grease in the bearings looks surprising well so I just doing the topend right now.
