Engine Machining - Who's the best? - Brisbane

Who's the best when it comes to engine machine work in the Brisbane locality now? I need some work done and I want the best working on my block and crank.

I'm looking for a phone number for Phil Jack Performance, but can't seem to locate them anywhere, they used to be excellent, so did Bill Mann, he used to be really good value! Does anyone know if he's still in the engine machining business? If so phone contact details would be good please.

Any other recommendations would be awesome.

Thanks guys.

Re: Engine Machining - Who's the best? - Brisbane

Looking to get the block hot tanked, line bored and the lifter bores looked at as I have had an issue with a cam losing a couple of lobes and 2 lifters scored the lifter bore, damaged the bores a little. So the bores will need to be sleeved. Want to make sure this doesn't happen again, or if it's something to do with the valley being a little out of alignment.

Just wanted someone good who know's their Clevelands and who has a good rep with the HP community. That's why I was after the number for Phil Jack, but have since found they trade as Jack Bros now. These guys are as good as you'll get anywhere in the world, these guys can machine an engine to exacting specs and have an Awesome reputation for thier know how and thier engines.

Is that the one you promised me nick?
I have found either John White Racing Engines, or Engine Engineering to be both brilliant, and top quality work.
I would not use anyone else in Brisbane now, seeing Woody has left Bryants, who are actually at archerfield, not slack creek

1998 EL XR8
1998 NL FBT number 007.
1997 EL GT number 051.
1998 Fairlane Concorde
2006 F250 Crew Cab
