I have a 2009 R56 Non-Turbo car that recently sucked a valve seat and did some damage.  I am looking into rebuilding the engine since it is very difficult to find a well taken care of low mileage engine to swap out.  - (unless you have one for sale and you are reasonably close.)

I am in Northern California, about an hour between Sacramento and Stockton.  Looking for suggestions on a machine shop familiar with these engines.

Has anyone done this to one of these cars?  What did it cost you?  It's been almost 30 years since the last engine I rebuilt and it was a Hi-Perf Small Block Chevy.  Back when we could afford gasoline...
