Default need an engine builder in south florida

so as the title states, i need a good engine builder in south florida. I'm in Miami and i'll be building my engine very soon, but I am searching for a good shop to do the machining for me. i don't want to spend a ton on the work, but i need good work all the same.

here's what i need done:
hot tank head and block. magnaflux crank. line bore and hone block for new pistons. replace all freeze plugs in block.

anyone know of a good shop i can contact for this work?

please let me know. i had wanted to go with Sebastian, as per good recommendations for his work, but apparently he isn't doing this stuff anymore.

any suggestions?

No need for magnaflux, just invest in a ball peen hammer. Tap one side of the crank and listen to the other end, if anything breaks up the note, there's an imperfection in the crank.
