There may be a post about this already, but I can not find it. Do you have a favorite machine shop? I am in need of a shop here in Arizona that does good work with decent prices and good customer service. I need to take a block in to get checked over for cracks and any damage, and possibly bored out if it needs it. I will also need to get the cylinder heads rebuilt at a later time as well. I am between Phoenix and Tucson, so I can go in either direction for a good machine shop. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Maybe we can get a list going for every state?

Don't waste your time rebuilding old heads, unless your are hell bent on keeping your originals you can do better with new one's with no heart ache down the line (cracked heads). You don't have to spring for some race head on a street motor. What motor?

Machine Works on Stone in Tucson. Best head guy in town. Nothing wrong with rebuilding LA heads. The later 5.2 and 5.9 motors are the ones with head cracking issues.
