    i live on East coast and Never heard of him..but i bet many people on the West Coast has heard of Gene Fulton and Par racing engines located on the East Coast...if this tell you anything..
    not saying he ( Sherman) is not a great engine builder....i would definatley check his local references meaning people who have had engines built by him..i would speak with a minimum of 5 references,if you can't find them..then RUN !..a motor is the quickest way to get burned in this business...trust me on this one..

    Joe Sherman

    I found an article about an engine he built, attached it here: It was published in Hot Rod Magazine.

    http://www.hotrod.com/techarticles/e...sor/index.html

    He also has a website. Seems to be very well known. Joe Sherman Racing won the inaugural 2002 Popular Hot Rodding Engine Masters Challenge I'd say he is the real deal.

    Sorry I didn't word that very well. He is on Speedtalk all the time. Ed Wilson on here can probably give you some good references on him.
