You'd be a fool to not go with Dynosty.
I did, and I'm on the central coast. Definitely worth the shipping cost.
Don't go to GTM or anyone else. Most shops will over charge because they've never worked on a vq... which in my opinion should cause them to charge less.
Buying a whole new block paying for machining twice and shipping to and from Dynosty was still less than what Lesco (race shop here in town) wanted. Lesco for example has built a 2000+hp tb48 stroked motor with O rings, regularly builds race motors, and Ferrari motors.
Go the proven route. Dynosty has a fantastic track record, and they're fully competant. Eddie (the machinist) used to build (I think, but I could be wrong) sprint cup motors... But everyone at Dynosty are 350z/g35 specialists. Not to forget, they currently hold the record for quickest 6 speed z33.
Give them a call, tell them you heard about them on the forums. Tell them your goals for the car and they will help you pick the right parts (http://www.dynosty.com
Installation should be just a matter of finding a shop with a good rep. Just make sure you get at least your block done correctly. A lot of shops run incorrect clearances in the big/small end of the rod, bad bearing clearances, bad ring gaps, and you don't find out until premature failure.
