Good Ford mech. in OKC area?

Hey guys, I think Ive decided to have my 92 302 rebuilt. I haven't been a Ford owner long at all, so I dont know any good shops to take it to. Does anyone in the Oklahoma City area have any suggestions?

I'm not sure of any places, but some of the members might know.


You could call Power House Performance or HP racing and see if they recomend anyone. Other than them two people, I have no idea...

Try Sooner Auto on West Main in Norman. He has a supplier in Dallas and says he can beat anybodys price on a new long block. If you want yours rebuilt,try Wells Auto on West Lindsey in Nornan. Wells is not cheap but they do good work and you won't have to take it back when they are through.

I actually took the truck to a place called Wall's Automotive on 23rd and Anne Arbor. They came highly recommended by a family friend. On the phone, I was explaining the problems with my truck, and he was actually trying to talk me out of a rebuild, and even a valve job. You wont find too many places that will talk you out of repairs. I'll let you guys know how they do.

Well they wanted $2900 to do the rebuild, so it's going somewhere else. I do like the place though. Straight forward and easy to work with.

is that with them pulling and re-installing? if so, then that isn't that bad, really. I might suggest automotive supply company (ASC) out in mustang. I took them my motor and they gave me back 2 rebuilt heads, and an assembled short block. only set me back about $1200. this included line hone for crank and cam as well as all of the normal rebuild stuff. they used the master rebuild kit from PAW, with bigger cam, lifter springs, bigger valves, and a unlimited 1 year waranty (wich I never used) on all of their work and parts. I honestly feel I got a really good deal.

if you call them ask for Lex, he is the shop boss and owner I believe, anyways he is a great guy to deal with and he will make you happy.

if you decide to do some of the grunt work of pulling the motor yourself lemme know I would love to lend a hand.

just pull yours and take it to blumingthalls over on robinson(I believe that is where it is) I was quoted $700 for a bench build on a C-4 and it is guaranteed for 1 year.

bluemingthalls is top notch, i know a fellow that has a 4x4 of a different breed, he had the entire drivetrain rebuilt there, and he is very satisfied.
