Thanks guys! Yeah I had VW Paradise do my cylinder head. Wasn't really happy with them. The hot tank job was shabby, lots of dirt and grease still left on the head. Plus the guy that did the machine work gave me one price over the phone, and even higher after I brought my head in.
When I said that's not what was quoted over the phone, he fought me on it. I ended up paying $30 more dollars for everything done. Needless to say, I won't be going back to VW Paradise.
I will give those other places suggested a call. Thanks guys!
I know it's not around here (about 100 miles away ) but Graves engine machine shop in Upland CA is off the hook!!! They did all my machine work when I was doing a 4.6 stroker (which I later sold).. They do anything from Camry engines to 454's. About as stand up as it gets.. If you ever get out that way it's well worth it to have them do your work..
Great service! Kenyon Machine wins my vote. Great people, great pricing! Got my block bored, honed, tanked (with the soda wash), and cam bearings replaced for $275!
Can't beat that! Nice people to talk to as well. I love sharing a little chat with people over just being rushed out the door. Felt like not just another customer, but a person having a conversation. Great job Greg!
