Now that I have finally sold my home, and moved out of Houston (YEA!!), I am gearing up to start my build on the 496. It won't be till the end of the year, but I need to check out who will do a good job on the machining of my block, balancing of the assembly, etc. .
Does anyone recommend a machine shop in Central Texas (+/- 100 mile radius of Waco)?
I also am getting a new tranny from Jakeshoe within the next week or two (Thanks Jake). New MT Streets planted and took out the Jackson Racing TH400.
Wildman, Howdy neighbor!
I live between Hewitt and Lorena.
I can recommend Mike Barnard Performance, 931 Bays Road, Axtell, Tx.
Phone is 822-1526. He does nice work! His shop stays busy.
Any questions, just holler!
If you don't mind the drive from Hewitt to Irving, I can make another recommendation. He can usually turn around stuff in a couple of weeks or quicker (His motto is, if I don't turn it around, I don't get paid!) and does REAL good work. Prices aren't the cheapest, but are very fair.
