Great service, workmanship and pleasure to deal with. They got me in quickly and performed the work quicker than I... expected. It was my first time dealing with them and I was very impressed. I dealt with Kevin at the counter but talked to a couple other guys and they seem to have a solid team. Work was excellent and prices were very fair, highly recommend.read more

Rob has been landing the plane over the phone for me (so to speak) for a few years now, his and his teams knowledge has... kept my mistakes to an all time low and my motors are very very grateful. I will always refer my friends to them for any machining or assembly or quality parts. I highly recommend giving them a call or a visit.-eric-read more

Rob, Kevin and Jeff are all extremely knowledgeable as well as very patient. They provided me with all my engine... machining, as well as every part I needed for my engine build. Their customer service is off the charts as they took many phone calls from me as I bombarded them with numerous questions while assembling my engine. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for any form of machining or engine work.read more

It's easy for a shop to look good when everything goes according to plan without any hiccups. What makes a shop truly... amazing is when something goes wrong and the shop goes out there way to make it right. I bought a fuel injection system from these guys and I had some problems with it. It's obvious that these guys don't manufacture the systems in their shop but I bought from them and because of this Rob went out of his way to deal with the manufacturer, avoid shipping costs, and help me get my car back on the road as soon as possible. This service is over and above what's expected in my opinion and I really appreciated it. I won't hesitate to recommend Alec's Automotive Machine Shop to anyone!read more

Most recently I dropped off heads from a 502 Ramjet crate motor. After inspection issues were found and all areas were... addressed. Additionally I had them research and install some perfomance upgrades. They were also mindful of my budget. Turnaround time was on point and they went above and beyond the initial work order without charging me additional fees. I have used them before on another build and was very satisfied. Mad respect to the entire team. Thank you for keeping the Dually running like the beast it is!read more
