Default Houston Performance Shops

Anyone have the names of any good Mustang shops in the Houston area. I am looking into getting a set of heads and need a shop to install them. I would like to get some prices together so I know what kind of money I am needing.

Thanks for the help... I looked at the site. I did not see anything about engine assembly. They will install a set of heads and then maybe a tune? What kind of prices can I expect?

They are a full service facility

Machine shop
Complete in-house performance engine builds
custom turbo fab
dyno tuning
any and all mechincal or electrical repairs.

You name it they can do it in-house.
Call and ask for a rough quote
They know everything from 5.0's to Vipers and Ford GT's
Always fun to see the bad *** cars they have in the shop.

Coolest thing in their shop lately is 1967 Corvett Sting Ray with
super rare limited edition 427 motor, fully restored, probably a $300,000+ car

Not to hijack the thread, but I helped my Father do a bumper to bumper resto on a '66 Convertable Stingray vette.
427cid 425hp 4 speed.... Man that thing would melt the bias ply tires on it. It was his Mother-inlaws.

What the hell does that have to do with.... oh never mind.

Those of you who responded, thanks. I will check with those shops. I hope to do this sometime in the next few months.

Nothing really, just seeing rbarns post about the rare 427 car made me think of it. Figured I would mention it. By the way, the old vette would eat that little stang of yours for lunch all day every day.

yea it might out run his mustang but look at how much more money is in the vette than in the mustang. there are plenty of mustangs here that can smoke that vette. there are more than just a few mustangs pushin more than 425 hp, and another thing spinnin the tires dont get u newhere.

Default Ranger Power

I have a 2002 Ford Ranger with a 3.0 V6. I have 52,000 original miles on my Ranger and I already have to do a repair on the heads.

So I have decided to make a project out of it. I want to install a 5.0 Mustang engine in from a downer vehicle but I am looking for a good performance shop or mechanic that make this happen.

I live in Houston Texas and I am willing to travel in e state of Texas to get this done right. So if anyone out there has had good luck with a performance shop or mechanic in the past can you please send me some names and numbers.

Thanks,
