Mountain High Performance is who I used for the top end rebuild of my sister's pickup.

On Ward in Arvada.

I went there on a recommendation from Robbie, and I couldn't be more pleased. They did excellent, fast work and for a decent price. I will definitely be back next time I need machining done.

Bill and Pat get my vote! Mountain High Performance has done a lot of work for me and are the only ones I will take stuff too at this point. Gunn has equally good recommendations from many. Obviously those two are your best choices and it just depends on who is more convenient for you!

I've used Gunn for several Heads and they have done good jobs on all of them.

I've used Ridge Reamer for years (56th & Harlan). Never any problems.
