It depends on how far you want to drive.

Adger Smith Performance in Texarkana Texas is one of the best I've seen. He does a lot of Big Boy race car engines.

call RK Machine in ripley, if you want someone to build you a motor that knows fords then he is the man. He has more rare ford race cars than anyone in oklahoma for shure. The last time I talked with rick he said don't be in a hurry to get a motor back, if you want it quick give him a call and see how far he is out.

John Friend in Terrelton has a much better Ford collection than Rick Kirk (RK). My dad was good friends with Rick for years. The work I have had him do has been good, but he is a little pricey and he's nearly impossible to get ahold of if you have a question.

Folks Machine shop in Norman does great work. I know several people that used them. They are next to the Walmart on the east side.

There's alway Bluechip, and Buddy Rice, the latter of the two, in my opinion, is better, but I have only seen the results of his work in 768 HP turbo nissan 2.4 liter motors!!! I guess he knows what he's doing.

I had Automotive Supply Company in Mustang build my 360 almost 9 years ago, and I have never had a single problem with the work, or parts they used. Lex is a real good guy, and he stands by his work. If you want to check them out, just look up engine rebuilding in mustang at yellowbook.com. Something may show up. If that doesn't work, PM me and I'll get the #
