Good FE Machine Shop?

I am ready fornthe machine shop on my 390 build. I am looking for a good trustworthy machine shop in the Tampa, FL area. I typically use NAPA and have built a good relationship with the shop foreman and he has done great work, but the FEs are a whole diff animal. I have also been talking to a gentlemen out of Pinellas Park that has a whole lotnof FE knowledge and parts, but I have no experience with him or his shop. His name is Jim and he is from up north somewhere due to his accent. Im hesitant to just hand my stuff over to someone I know nothing about. Anyone ever worked with this guy? If not, can you refer any good machine shoos that knownthere FEs well and all of the dirty little tricks needed to make these run without issues.

DeepRoots is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
There is a company in Orlando called "Powered by Ford"
I'd call them and ask if I lived there.

good luck!
