Socal head reconditioning

Looking for a good recommendation for a head reconditioning. Would like to have everything such as valve guides replaced and lifters checked.

Much appreciated.

I'm in the OC if that helps with recommendations.

Starting tomorrow if I find a shop. No point starting if it will sit in the garage for 1-2 weeks while I wait for the shop to take it/open up after christmas.

Even if they were 190 miles away (not 90) it would STILL be worth the drive.

Do yourself a favor and have them do the work! You will NOT be disappointed, and the work will be done by people that are truly EXPERTS in MBZ engine work.

Ask for Mike...
