Machine shop recommendations

I'm planning on rebuilding my 460 this summer, and looking for a machine shop in central mn. Anyone have suggestions? I'd like to find someone with experience in efi 460s to maybe do some head work.

I used R&R Performance in Spring Lake Park when I built my 460 about 10 years ago. They are the only ones I know of that know what they are doing with the Ford stuff.

Is spring lake park by Orono? Did you build your engine back to stock or do anything extra?

I had it bored .030, balanced, ported heads, raised the compression, solid lifter cam, etc, etc.

Here is their contact info if you want to call them.
