they did my machine work on the block, (boring) i bought my pistons, rods, rings, bearing from them and the checks and skimmed my heads for me.. i know the guy pretty well b/c my grandparents do business with them and the know each other so he hooked me up pretty fat on priceing..


Gary is the owner... Vinner works there know a lot about every kind of car and there is a older man that works there that can pretty much tell you what brand car your part came out of my just glancing at it..


i brought my crank in there to get checked and he was sitting across the room and says to me, " thats from a ford right" lol

They may be able to tune the carb for you. I know they would do a great job. They know what they are talking about even tho they are Chevy guys :roflol:

Another great place that does installs...
Industrial Electric
contact person: Neal Jimenez
last install: Clay's blower, Steven's Swap

haha just playing around my shop doesn't do installs but Neal does for a resonable price

Automotive Performance Machine/Barnard Racing Engines

931 Bays Rd
Axtell, TX 76624
254-822-1526

Haven't heard of it? It's because they don't advertise. They don't need to. They do amazing work. When you drive up it doesn't look like much but their work is top notch. They build motors for pro mod/alcohol cars, dirt track, drag, and street. They also Dyno test and tune your motor. Be sure to check out Mike's Austin Healey with a 427 small block!

As a matter of fact I saw a small box there yesterday with Nitro Dave written on it! Did they do any head work for you?

I used Mike as well, i have heard nothing negative about his work ever. He does take a while but its worth it, i wouldn't use anyone else either

The only thing he did on my heads is a valve job and installed new springs....but they used to do all the machine work for the speed shop when we were downtown
