Re: Titan Monster 4.9 300 Cubic Inch Jeep Stroker

I sourced my own parts and had a machine shop do all the machining and assembly. Total I spent about $500 less than a titan motor, the cheapest 4.6L when I priced them out a couple years ago.

We built Goatmans stroker for his KOH buggy for $1600 out the door. What does a Titan cost?

Re: Titan Monster 4.9 300 Cubic Inch Jeep Stroker

SilverXJ(?) I think thats his name at least. Over on jeepstrokers.com SilverXJ states that he had issues with Titan as well.
His case was the 3rd one I found about people having issues with Titan. Not bagging on their company, but after reading those I know I won't give them my money. Its not worth the risk in my eyes lol.

Re: Titan Monster 4.9 300 Cubic Inch Jeep Stroker

So a wildjeepchick that has a Titan 4.9l TJ Rubicon registered on an XJ site to give her one and probably only post to praise Titan(the same person gave the exact same praise about the shop and 1XXXX trouble-free miles under a different name before if you search)?

Re: Titan Monster 4.9 300 Cubic Inch Jeep Stroker

Wow, you guys are quick to jump to conclusions. Have anything better to do than rag on people you don't know? Not looking promising there. No, I work at Old Navy, thank you.
If my posts bother you or threaten your manly prowess in any way, that's too bad. Maybe one HONEST post can make a difference, instead of a bunch of he said she said & 'I made up my mind before I went there and wanted them to screw up just so I could be a lemming like all the other posters.' Everyone is entitled to his/her opinion, I get that. XJ, Rubicon, Cherokee, Comanche, or bloody Bat mobile, it shouldn't make a difference. Just sayin. . .

Do you frequently try to get dirt on companies you have already purchased from?

Titan earned the reputation they have on this and many if not all other forums. It did not come from he said she said BS.

You had a good experiance? Great. Some people think McDonalds offers the best burger available - and I am happy for them, but I desire better food.

Its all perspective. We expect more out of a company who wants our money. Quality products and more importantly good customer service.. other engine builders offer it, Titan has not.

Re: Titan Monster 4.9 300 Cubic Inch Jeep Stroker

From Jeepstrokers, also a one off:
"I have a 4.9 Titan and do not have any problems. It has about 5000 miles and I drive it everyday. I have been to the Titan facility in Fla. They have remodeled in the last couple of months, and it is very impressive."

Re: Titan Monster 4.9 300 Cubic Inch Jeep Stroker

I received this via PM on jeepstrokers.com from Wildjeepchick on 4/4/2011.
Quote:
I live thirty minutes from 'Titan' in Florida. I've talked to three different people there, and perused their stuff online. They seem well informed and very reasonable. I was told to ask you directly about your experience(s) with them. I've looked through the posts that mention them specically, and have noticed that they DO NOT have many fans here. Can you tell me why exactly I should steer clear? Do you have a particular horror story that makes them bad? My Rubicon is my baby, and I want to be sure why or why not I should buy from someone before I do anything big.
PLEASE RESPOND. I'm really interested in the knowledge you have.
THANK YOU!
but... she already had the engine for a while?
