MECHANIC / Los Angeles AREA NEEDED FOR performance engine work

i'm going to need my head gasket and valves re-done, and i wanted to know if anyone knows of a reputible los angeles mechanic that will get the heads polished and ported, as well as fix the gasket leak, and not kill me on the fees....

I HAVE A GREAT MECHANIC, BUT HE'S VERY TRADITIONAL AND BY THE BOOK...AND i'd like to try and squeeze out a little more performance, which i'm told i will get if i get the heads polished and ported....
help

yeah he's the one of the best, only problem is i don't think he'd be interested in doing the work and getting the heads performance ported/polished....
he's a traditionalist, which i greatly respect, but i'd like a little more umph in my car...
