Meets that thread for what needs to be done.

OXFORD, ALABAMA

Brother's machine shop.


Ask for Benny, he built mine, and he did a fantastic job! All clearances to TSRM specs, uses Clevite77's or bearings of YOUR choice. Will use any parts you bring him, and is up front with all charges, and will notify you if there are any additional costs. Only downside, if you need to turn your crank/cam repolish/refinish needs to be taken across the border to Georgia, but in my area, this is the best shop. (Note, Benny is no longer working here :( )

One negative, is that they do not use a torque plate when they hone cylinders, ALWAYS ask for this no matter where you go! I've used HKS and Cometic metal headgaskets with no issues at all from their resurfacing.

He did do a fantastic job on my 7MGTE.

We need to know who can rebuild our motors to spec, and has a good reputation.

I'll provide a number when I get back to the states on 7 Aug 06.

For rehoning, resurfacing, rebuilding the bottom end, installing ARP hardware and cutting the rods, cleaning, putting together the ENTIRE shortblock, total came to $744.

Cylinder Head Exchange in Montgomery, AL

Good for the basic stuff, not so sure about performance-oriented machining. The honed, decked, and some detailed cleanup on my 6M-GE. Not happy about the headwork (oil leaks), but it's taken 350 whp / 395 wtq for the last year or so. Prices are good

D&A machine shop, Canton, Georgia.
They decked my cylinder head, bored/honed my block for forged pistons, resized my rods, and polished my crank. Haven't finished the engine yet, so dunno exactly how good the work was, but it looks pretty nice. Their prices are reasonable for sure.

No the crank was stroked .010/.010 when I got it. My friend at H&M Customs helped me put the motor together. Morgan did all the machine work on the block and head.

Does anyone know of a reputable (toyota) engine builder in Asheville NC or Charlotte NC? I'm living in asheville but have access to shop space in Charlotte as well. There's got to be someone in Charlotte, but Asheville would be more convenient.

I can probably use Golden Shamrock Enterprises in Winston-Salem, but I'm curious about other places as well.

3 years ago, I had my head redone by Bryan Maloof Racing. He is now located in Clarksville, Georgia (about 115 miles from Ashville). I was very impressed with his expertise, equipment, careful attention to detail and accomplishments (extreme Mark 4 drag car and others). At that time he was very busy and not cheap but well worth the price if you want top quality. PM me if you want the phone number.

Thought I would post this. I had my 7m machined in Winterville GA (near Athens) at Gabriels machine shop. Did an awesome job. They have nice up to date machines. Made my block surface appear shiny as a mirror. Something to remember :) If you are machining a 7m remember to replace the oil pump driveshaft bearings....have them ordered. Bring your oil pump driveshaft and the bearings with you and have them install them when you get your work done.

Linch, good to hear. I just dropped my block and head off at Gabriel's yesterday.
