    I live in Austin Texas and I'm looking for a Machine shop I can trust with my Riv's 430. I'm hoping to save the engine ... it has a knock. If it isn't salvageable I'll put a 455 in it, but I'll still need a machine shop. Any help is appreciated, even if its out of state ... although I'm really hoping to avoid those monster shipping costs.

    I use a shop in Lubbock that does everything to my specs. I am near San Antonio now and dont know of any places around here. Hopefully other Texas folks can find you something closer.

    GSXing has recommended G&G Performance Engines in Tomball, TX. Still a bit of a drive, but he said several guys around the Houston area had used them.

    G&G do Most of the BBB in the Houston area. Joe & Chris have been around for Years, are Knowledgeable, & actually Like the Buicks.
    It would be worth the drive.

    Check out Kim Barr Racing Engines in Garland, TX. He has done machine work for me on 3 engines now. 30+ years experience in high performance engine building.
