Help on 240d sleeve job

I am trying to decide where to take my block for sleeves. I am doing a rebuild on my "80" 240d. I have taken the crank in for reconditioning and am doing the valves with the help of a MB tech friend. I took the block to a local mechanist for boring and found out it must be sleeved. The shop that did the crank has not done a MB but have done other diesels requiring sleeves and has a good reputation in general SOOO my questions would be 1) would you more experienced guys consider a shop like this and if so what would you ask them to do other than the sleeves? 2) In other words is doing a MB that different ?
