    Good Edmonton Machine Shop

    Question for the Edmonton fellas,

    Can anyone recommend a good machine shop?

    My 2zz-ge has developed a knock.

    Thanks!!

    Hey Harjeet, ive heard good and bad stories about every damn shop here in Edmonton.
    I think your best option is to go and try one out, I ended up going to Prostock to get some work done. Heard about as much good as bad from people and in the end they were quite easy to deal with.
    Sadly with the internet, most reviews are bad these days and documented on line, usually people with good reviews dont take the time to let others know that they had a great experience. I'm just as bad for this, I'm much more likely to give a bad review than post a good one. I need to be better about this for sure.

    i asked a friend who used to run a shop, and he didn't have any recommendations... but i think like projectae86 said, if you develop a friendship / respect with a shop you can have a better idea

    Also, I've been using Trac Engine Services for the last month. Had them do some work on my block and I just dropped off a head for them this week. Pretty fast turn around times, and so far great work!

    how did this end up? any recommendations?
    i thought the 2zz wasn't really serviceable, the cylinder bores are not able to do more than honing. same issue with the 1zz, so if you have a place thats cool
