Southern California Engine Rebuilders -- anyone to recommend?

Hi guys,

It's a veritable sea of questionable engine rebuilders down here -- has anyone had any experience with a rebuilder in the socal area? I live in Santa Monica, but I can tow in a 100 mile radius if there's a great shop somewhere that people trust. I've contacted Eddings, but they were being shifty with the price. Alot of the other places I've checked out on yelp have horrible reviews and customer experiences.

If anyone has had a good experience down here let me know. Definitely want to get a warranty.

Re: Southern California Engine Rebuilders -- anyone to recommend?

What all do u want done? Engine block work? Engine rebuild? Engine rebuild and R&R?
In all honesty engine rebuild shops are hit and miss. A great shop last year could be a disaster for quality this year. Just one machinist or supervisor/owner can make the difference.
Look localy and go out to see the shop - meet the crew.

I'm interested too here. Let us hear what u find in this area.
Give :The Los Angeles Performance Division / a try,
'94 Z28 mostly stock, new engine at 130kmi, now has 250kmi total. Edelbrock headers with 3" through a SpinTech. 1" lower with Voltland springs and Kontico shocks. BTO level 3 A4 with 2400 stall.
