Machine shops in the San Jose, CA area

I just bought a used short block and I need to find a reputable shop to inspect it. Any recommendations? Thanks.

I'm in the valley...I'm familiar with CA, so this may not help you at all(if your super far away). But there is a shop in Tulare,CA called "RPM Machine" which is very reputable. I haven't had work done there myself, but I have toured their shop. They run a real nice establishment there. And one of my buddys had a short block built there. It runs strong so...yeah...I figure it was good work, but I'm no expert. Their rates are about average. $70/hr or so. Like I said; I have no clue where your located, but they might be worth the trip if they're not real close...I've only heard good stuff

If you look at strummin67 location in his user title bar, it says "Sunnyvale".

I know of a shop down here in Gilroy that is a keeper, (we talked about Gilroy automotive machine one day last year) but I know you wanted to keep it local.

There is a company called Victory machine, that has a pretty good reputation, and I know of folks who are happy with their work, but we all know how things can change in a short time.

I talk regularly with a couple of guys who live and get work done in that area, I ask them as I see them about who it is that they use.

Later, mikey

Thanks for the responses, guys. I spoke with Vic at Victory. Nice guy. I also heard of another shop by NUMMI in Fremont through a friend of a friend who races. Engine shops seem to be hard to find and the good ones harder.
