Default Recommended Engine Machine Shops in Michigan

I am preparing to rebuild a pair of Gen VI 502 marine engines and am looking for a competent machine shop to deal with in Michigan or near by. Any recommendations or warnings are appreciated.
Thanks.

Thanks for the input. Maybe I should have explained in the original post that I plan to assemble the engines myself. It appears a lot of the big name marine engine builders only want to do the entire project, not just the machining.

Here is what I have found with the input so far.
  • Wesco Racing doesn't want to do just the machining.
  • Scorpion Racing Engines doesn't appear to exist any longer.
  • I had experience with Tyler Crockett in the past and prefer to deal elsewhere.
  • I spoke with Performance Engineering and they sound like a reasonable option but are backed up.
  • I haven't been able to speak with the person at Sterling yet as they are only available 9-3.
  • I haven't had a chance to talk with Dynamic Speed and Marine.
Thanks for the input and let me know if there are other good options for machining.
