Looking for recommendations for a Cylinder head shop North central Indy

I'm doing a bullet proof on my 6.0 in a couple of weeks and I'm looking for recommendations on where to take my cylinder heads to have them checked and decked if needed. I'm new to Indiana and I live near Lafayette right now but somewhere between here and Indianapolis would work. Any suggestions would be helpful .

Thanks

I've heard questionable things about them as well. The only one i've found online that looks halfway decent is "Richards Cylinder Head repair" in Indianapolis. It's amazing how few advertised cylinder shops are around especially with the speedway in town.

I worked at a Construction equipment dealership out of Indy and we used to send all of our Cummins, Iveco, and Isuzu heads to Richards. Ive also used them for a built sbc. Just make sure you tell them exactly what you want to be done/checked. Do some research on what to tell them to check. Good Luck. I am in the same boat. I need to do my gaskets and install studs, but dont have an extra vechicle at the moment.
