southern Minnesota machine shops? with dyno?

I'm looking for any opinions for high quality machinists in the southern minnesota area. I am seriously considering a shop that could also provide dyno break in and tune. I've been told some dyno shops will give a motor 20 min. or so to break in and then give it hell, while other shops will break'em real easy up to 3 hours before giving it hell. More than anything you can imagine I need a motor thats rock solid dependable and last at least 100,000 miles.
I have posted another thread "my 406 has failed me twice" about my extremely bad experiences I've had to date. What I didn't mention there was that I was fighting back problems when I pulled the 355, installed the 406, pulled the 406, installed the 406, and this last pull of the 406 I had to supervise my father and brother because I just got out of back surgery 10 days before.
I don't want a sympathy trip. I want a quality motor that I can count on that performs to my expectations. Neither mentally or physically can I continue to pop motors in and out like a bad fuse. This is my daily driver and my only one.

Mapquest says a 6 hour drive. I will consider it but hoping for something closer.

I don't try to come on here and try to sell anything, but since you're asking....
We're in East Central MN, Mora to be exact. I have some customers coming from southern MN to get their work done here because they've heard of our work and have been pleased with our service and power. I'm not sure where you're at, but a guy from Clara City just made the drive up to drop stuff off and it was about 4 hours for him.
If you're interested or have any questions, you can email me at travis@moramotorworks.com
