Mike Williams posted to the urq group asking for any local recommendations
for machine shops for headwork on the MC engine he has in his urquattro.  I
didn't see any responses there, so I tought I'd forward it here.  

I haven't had any work done lately, so I'm not of much use ... but I did
take my WX head to "Head Master" years ago, and was not at all satisfied
with the service I got.  My brother in law worked at an auto parts store at
the time and he had the head sent to a shop up in Oakland that worked on
Chevy alloy heads that were apparently prone to similar cracking to the
Audis.  They ground out an area around the cracks and built it back up ...
the head worked beautifully in the car for years ... I just removed it last
year because I had a bad exhaust valve and found the head itself was in
excellent shape.  If noone else has any suggestions I can call Todd to see
if he remembers the name of the shop he sent it to.
