Engine builder Omaha, Kansas City, Des Moines

Looking for recommendations for an engine builder. I am located in eastern Nebraska and the builder I have used and trusted for years is no longer available. Looking at doing an original 289 or possibly a 331. Thanks

I have a 289 at CARQUEST Auto Parts in Omaha right now, 84th. & G, just south of I-80 and 84th. Mustang club member referral with good results. Jeremy is the main shop guy there, somewhat busy, he quoted me app. 3 weeks before he could started on it.

Not sure if they are still around, but earl's garage on park ave and like levenworth was a cool shop that specialized in building vintage Mustangs.

This place is just North of Ames. A friend had his race motor built by these guys a couple years ago. Haven't been there yet myself.

May want to look at Bill's Machine Shop in Omaha, NE. I had a friend with a full nitrous pro street SBF built there (twice) and it was an extremely solid motor. 9s on juice, 10s on race gas.
