Local Rebuilder Suggestions

Hey all,

I've been working on a GTV6 head rebuild for a while now. I had to do it twice due to a machine shop that didn't put exhaust guide seals on and I didn't catch it. I finally got everything put together and even though I thought I was as diligent as possible it wouldn't fire up. I cranked it over half a dozen times checked timing, distributor, etc and stopped. Opened the valve cover and saw a thoroughly milky mix of oil and coolant all over again. Not sure whats up at this point, but I'm out of time and need to give it to a pro.

Long story short, anybody have any good local shops or folks who could do this reasonably? Maybe a source on a known good motor for a swap or a 3.0? Any suggestions welcome. Thanks all!

There may be good people in Denver to do head work, but I've used Steve Hanford in Washington. Postage to/from wasn't too bad and he's well-regarded in the Alfa community.

Awesome, thanks for the referral. I'll look into.

I may need to go all out and have a local Denver shop do the project soup to nuts, any good local shops anybody can recommend these days?
