Quality forged rod motor

Who would you go to if you wanted a OEM quality forged rod rebuilt motor? Something as leak free and as reliable as they were from the factory?

Stay local so if there are any problems they can be taken care of. Probably Carson Stauffer from the mid atlantic.

Thankfully my motor is doing great. I always ponder this question if the day ever came that it needed to be replaced though. Are the ford remans as good of quality as the OEM motor was?
