"Had my M54 head resurfaced w/ a valve job. Honest and fast has been running great after install! I had a timing issue when I installed it and wondered if I bent a valve... I brought it back for a check and they didn't charge me! Hard to find a shop like this these days! Thanks again guys!"

Integrity and Quality"More projects with Clay at Joe's Engine Shop. Had the infamous valve seat drop situation on my 2001 Jeep 4.7 liter, seat ran through the engine and put a beating on it. I bought quality parts and had Clay's team rebuild the bottom end. Awesome! Ran into some funding issues and went with an online source for cylinder heads, to get the vehicle finished. HUUUGGGGE mistake! Should have waited. The difference, in hide, site was not substantial. The replacement heads (not Clay's work) dropped a valve seat at 9000 miles. Caught it before it broke loose completely, pulled heads, brought them to Clay. Turns out the heads I had purchased never should have been rebuilt in the first place. They were grossly undersized, machined way below minimum spec and had already had valve seats replaced at least once and poorly done. Clay is looking at my original mangled heads to see if they can be saved. Clay also saved my bacon on a Mini Cooper head that dropped a valve seat. A lot of folks don't like working on these, but Clay took good care of me and made it so that my friend could keep his vehicle. With a shop like Joe's Machine Shop near by, the engine rebuild jobs are starting to stack up."

After a few brief conversations, he knew exactly what I wanted out of the motor and what parts he would use to get the desired results and never once tried to upsell. His customer service is top notch! Really looking forward to seeing the finished product!"
