Looking for trustworthy shop in Central FL for J-mod

Hi,
Wondering if anyone here knows of a good shop that I can trust to do a J-mod here in Central FL on my '95 Mark VIII? I know Dennis Rinehart is up in J-ville, but that's just too darn far...If I was looking to do some major mods, he'd be the man, but just looking for your basic J-mod, Mercon V, and tranny cooler install.

Thanks in advance,
JC

Doesn't look like there's hardly anyone there...not sure what I'd be looking at there...

Jake Lamotta said that their shop can do it if you bring them the parts. He would prefer that you have a complete valve body to swap in though.

Lamotta is good, so is Realstreet in Winter Springs. Both are good shops.

There are many local domestic racers on that site, that is the good Orlando crew.

Talked to Jay @ RealStreet; said he would do a valve body only; wasn't interested in drilling out my existing sep. plate.........same with Jake.

I'm waiting to hear back if they would do the pre-drilled sep. plate and kit from Lonnie, @ Blue Oval...that may be the most convenient way of doing it, even though it's a little more $$

I think Jake can handle that and if he needs any help tell him to call me.
