Lehigh valley, Pa - engine rebuilders

I've searched the site and have seen numerous conversations about rebuilding engines.
I am looking for a place to rebuild mine, that has a good reputation, that is located in the lehigh valley, Pa area.
Anyone know anyone who has had their engine rebuilt in these parts?

I have an 88 yj with an amc258.

Thanks in advance

There are quality engine rebuilders all over the country.
You could probably order a 258 long block for a little over a grand. A truck would show up at your house in a few days with a fully re manufactured 258 bolted to a special pallet.

You do the swap, call them and they pick up your used long block and refund the core charge.

Shipping charges are usually included in the price. I got a nice performance 289 for my 67 Mustang for about $1400 including shipping.



Done.

You're better off just buying a rebuilt engine from jasper or a company similar. The reason being it's the most cost efficient. When my first motor went I was comparing prices to rebuild it vs. a rebuilt unit and rebuilding mine at a local machine shop would cost much more.

x2 with Jasper. You pay for what you get. Not only that but they are national so if anything happens you can get service for it at any repair shop they have certified.
