Default Best local shops

Can you guys post what you believe from experiences the best shops (besides the sponsors) to get work done (closest to San Jose preferably)? Maybe list a top five...

Type of work being: performance work like Cam installs/crankpinning/rootsblowers/fuel system/dyno tuning... NOT oil changes, brake jobs, body work, etc.

Thanks

Synergy motorsports is in Livermore but is well worth it for overall work and experience.

Borelli Motorsports does bad ass work. They're in San Jose. Or JRG Motorsports in Hayward.

"None of them", never heard of that shop. But Thanks for contributing.
I know the search button also hasn't been very productive either.

Anyway,
JRG seems to get the most votes for shops (Synergy is a little far for now).

How about machine shops close to San Jose for motor rebuilds?

Anyone have feelings about Borrelli motorsports or Vayala racing downtown SJ? The wait to get in at JRG is 2-3 months!
