Engine builders

I have a 1972 GTO. Restoration is underway. I have a 1974 455 with 4 bolt mains for the car. Looking for people that have bought or had a builder build them an engine for their car. I,m looking for a street car with balls 500+HP and still idles well. Any help finding a builder will be appreciated. Thanks Mike

Stay away from Central Virginia Machine Service, it was excellent back in the day but that day has passed.

Southwest Machine in San Bernardino re rebuilt my 400 CVMS screwed up and did an excellent job.
I wouldn't recommend shipping your engine to anyone instead find someone reputable within driving distance in case things go wrong.

For sure you don't want to take it there.
