Rebuild heads

Could the group recommend a quality place that will rebuild heads?

Thanks in advance,
Dave

Dave, it would be helpful to us give you a good recommendation and save you a ton of time if you were to us more about what you wanted in "quality place". There are some really good ones for Porsche air cooled engines, many are members of this forum group but like everything else, each shop has its strengths. The names that you have been given so far is a great place to start, I used Bob Hirsch at Anchor Atlantic in NJ and I was very pleased with my experience with him.

+1 for Bob at Atlantic. He did my 3.6 RS spec heads. Really need to know where you live as to whether you have to ship or can drive and drop.

AnchorAtlantic Enterprises......

My last three (3) engine rebuilds that needed cylinder heads machining were done by AAE owned and operated by Bob Hirst (856-371-6061). I was completely satisfied with my other machine shop but was wondering why so many people were recommending Anchor Atlantic. So out of curiosity, I tried AAE's cylinder head rebuilding services and was totally amazed on the quality and craftmanship of the work. A 4th set is going to AAE this winter. If you are shipping your cylinder heads to your chosen machine shop, you can't go wrong choosing Anchor Atlantic. One less problem for your engine rebuilding project.

I am sure that cgarr does fine work. But there are many great options out there so don't do a "case closed" post like there is only one......

If you're totally stupid with money, go ahead.

If you can't spend your money fast enough, other shops are your friend.

No more ridiculous than telling someone what they can or cannot post on a forum in which you have no moderative control.

Workboat(dave),
Look for the closest shop to you that works on air-cooled Porsche heads. Why won't you share your location? Shipping these heads with insurance is pretty costly. The money you save on shipping to and from your location can be spent on other "while you're in there" issues.

I drove down to Kelly-Moss Motorsports in Madison, WI and was very favorably impressed with their facility. Prices were very competitive. Work topnotch.
