Engine rebuild in metro Detroit area?

Hey y'all, looking to get my Marauder back on the road, but unfortunately, I need an engine rebuild. I know there's gotta be a preferred spot in the Detroit area to get work done, so I figured I'd ask here. Thanks in advance!

Contact Lidio at Alternative Auto in Chesterfield. He knows more about Marauders than almost anyone else in the area.

Yes, that is west of Detroit, just as Lidio is east of Detroit, chesterfield Twp is not “in”
Detroit. It is however, 10 minutes from Jerry’s house, which is also not in Detroit .

Chris is only a 2 hour drive from where the op is, plus chris is capable of answering the telephone when you call.

Georgia has nothing to do with it, where I sent my car for work is irrelevant to the OP question, My comment was to say Grand Rapids is not ON the west side of Detroit city limits, It is 157 miles west OF Detroit.
I wasn't the one asking where to rebuild a motor, OP asked Detroit location. That is all., nothing implied, inferred, coerced

The OP asked about the Detroit area, not a location in the city.

I just mentioned Chris Curless because two hours it really isn't jack squat to drive to get your car worked on.

For those of you that live up there is there any other shops in the Detroit area that know what they are doing?
