Who makes good 455 crate motors?

A Google search finds me a half dozen or so builders, like the ones listed below. Anyone know who's good and who isn't, either in the list below or just one that you know of? I'm in Colorado, so that'd be ideal, or even a neighboring state. Anyway, here's who I've found so far:

www.maundmotorworks.com
www.proformanceunlimited.com
www.eddiesvalvegrinding.com
www.precisionengine.com
www.bestautojobs.com
www.gmplace.com
www.customcrateengines.com
www.gardenofspeedin.com/

- and so on -

Paul, I just viewed this but would not have responded because I don't know these guys, hence, I can't make a good recommendation. Probably what the others have reasoned. We try hard not to talk out of our you-know-what's here. I used a local machine shop for my work but wouldn't say he is great. If you want his name and number I can give it to you but he isn't an Olds specialist per-se. I will recommend this though. Over at Realoldspower.com you would probably get quite a few comments and recommendations, lots of engine builders and lots of members (in the thousands).

That's very helpful Dan, thanks. I have the same deal here locally, in that I know some decent shops/engine builders, but no one who does Olds motors. I go poke around at Realoldspower. Thanks!

One that does come to mind know that I think more about it is Terry at FCR Performance. He is over at R.O.P. I bought a camshaft from him once. He has a pretty good reputation business wise over there and seems to be knowledgeable too.
