Question block work

I live just north of Denver by 84th and I-25. I am rebuilding a 351W(5.8L) out of a 1991 F250 and I was wondering if anyone know of a decent priced place to have my block taken care of I may need it bored over and I need it dipped for sure any suggestions, I am am looking to stay cheap without comprimizing quality.

Heads by Paul in Englewood, or Blue Oval Performance, also in Englewood. Blue Oval is obviously a ford shop but HBP is probably a little cheaper. Both should be in the phone book.

Heads by Paul is probally cheaper, or they should be. They did a complete rebuild on one of my friends engines , disassembly, cleaning, machine work, assembly, all without notiving a big crack down the side of the block.

I would recommend blue oval, or GUNN. GUNN is south of Denver, in englewood. 2 of the guys i work with had work done there, got a great deal, and the work was great. I dont know thier phone number, but it should be in th ephone book.

Hypoid has a good reputation on FTE.Hypoid has a good reputation on FTE.

I've been happy with Havanna Machine in Aurora. Someone I know had a bad experience with them, but that story sounds fishy to me.

Another guy I know recommends the shop at Advance (?) Auto in Arvada. It's on Old Wadsworth at the north end of downtown. This guy is real picky, says "Henry knows his stuff".

Let us know how things go, Mike
