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.
