Any decent engine shop should be able to handle the block, I'd be cautious with the head though. Might be worth shipping it off to Franko6.

I made the mistake of trying an import engine place down in Minneapolis (looks like they are closed now) to rebuild an ALH head. It lasted about 40 miles before the camshaft snapped into 2 pieces. He claimed I torqued down the head wrong and didn't stand behind his work. Well my head from Frank is still going strong over 100k later.
