Don't forget the team of machinists they have in the back of the shop - Norman Racing.
I have had Dan Marvin and Mike port 2 heads and several other custom jobs. Dennis Etcheverry (sp?) is the resident welder. He has done some jobs for me too. No task is too small for them. I too live in the area and stopping by to chat about the job is always a very receptive experience. And you get to see some very interesting engines on the bench if you do. They build countless classic and antique engines for racing, so the few months up to the Monterey Historics can get busy.
A priceless resource for the Bay Area.
