Re: machine shops in FL

You can skip Mesa Balancing in miami. You can skip South florida crank. Specialties machine down by me is decent. Nelson Competition engines in St Pete does alot of good work (Lambo Gallardo engines, assembled and fit some billet block engines for a buddy of mine).

Set of heads to sent to mesa from a 6L. Came back destroyed. Their porting was a sand roller. And the valves never closed again when they were put back on the truck. And stuff that comes back from south florida crank isn't always 100%.
