Reliable engine builder near Georgia

Anyone know of a good Suzuki engine builder in or near Atlanta, GA?
I want to have a good solid rebuild with 1600 exhaust valves, decked, milled, low/mid range cam with everything new top to bottom inside the motor. I already have a Weber, thorley header with 2" exhaust and high flow cat. It has just been sitting for about 1 year and a half in my mom's basement. I just dropped the transmission and ordered my new clutch. I also have the transfer case down to beef up and replace the mounts. I just replaced every u-joint and am trying to think of whatever else needs my attention to make it a very reliable daily driver again.

This thing is going to be a daily driver around town and I just got a set of 15x7 ar767 w/ 30 9.5 15 bfg muds I am not going to off road it anymore than some logging roads or the occasional dirt trail to the lake. I was thinking of using the calmini s/r that I have sitting here from a previous trade w/a friend. and a 1" body lift. I also found a spring shop through my dad who will rearch my springs for $250. How will this be for mostly street driving? Keep in mind I'm not crawling rocks with it. I want it to be as comfortable as possible for Atlanta traffic. I just started my a/c install also.

Re: Reliable engine builder near Georgia

rethink your cam. the lowend cams will make your engine drop off on power around 4500 rpm. I have one in mine, it's great off road which is what I built it for but I like the stock
cams better for the road.
