Default Engine Shop in S. Florida

I am a recent transplant to SW Florida and plan to have my carburated Merc 454 mags rebuilt over the summer. I'm looking for recommendations of a good local engine shop that's reliable, reasonable, and won't mind working on a stock 454. In my last boat, I had two grenades. One more and my wife will probably put an end to my boating days. I'm in the Naples area, but willing to go to Ft. Myers or even Miami / Ft. Lauderdale for the right shop.

Thanks,

Dawezel

If Roger Munn is still building motors over there, he is the guy, if not, it will pay to trailer over to Mesa

I would take the time to give Las Mesa a call to see if he can help you out.

Thanks a lot for the help guys. I talked to Laz at Mesa on the phone today and he seemed like a nice professional guy.
