    Default Looking for a good machine shop for valve job

    Took a set of 4v heads to a local shop for a valve job, twice... still getting a nice amount of leakage on acouple of cylinders through both intake and exhaust ports.

    Any recommendations for a good machine shop? Donít feel like dealing with this one anymore, I donít think theyíll ever get it right.

    Thanks!

    I've used High Flow Heads in Alsip and was happy with the work.

    Where is "local"? There are a shitload of machine shops around Chicago, there's a ton of performance stuff in this city.
