Someone recommend a machine shop for Engine honing - head work etc... (don't need it yet but...)

What would be the current expected cost for activities such as boring/honing a block ($50 a calendar)

A while back on KSOC NASIOC, a few posts were put up. I think there was one in Clinton or Clinton hwy. Maybe ask Marc at Fastech?

I don't know of any machine shops, but I'd expect $100/hour and several hours to bore and hone a used block. It won't be dirt cheap. You can also post on ETR and see who they recommend. There's a sticky in the general subforum with recommended shops.
