Default Quality 914 Machine Shop Referral Needed!

I live in Carlsbad, CA and am in the middle of a '76 914 2.0 resto project. I need a trusted, high quality machine shop with 914 experience with reasonable rates. Anywhere in so-cal would work... any ideas? Thanks

I would suggest Frank & Kits in San Bernardino. The owner and lead mechanic there are both Porsche guys (the lead mechanic is a big 914 guy). They've worked on my Boxster, 951 and 914 over the years.

Actually, my 914 will be heading back there this week for them to finish the resto I am doing. I am beyond thrilled with the work they have done rebuilding the motor and initial re-assembly.

They have another shop that they work closely with for most of the machining. From the minor machining that my motor required, their work appears to be top-notch. I know the shop owner, Frank, is having his 911 motor rebuilt and has sent it to the same machining shop, if that is any indication of the quality.
