Rebuilders in the east?

Can anyone recommend someone in preferable in Toronto, Ottawa, or Montreal or in between who they trust to rebuild an R380 and LT230 with all the updates that Ashcroft would put in without having to ship them across the Atlantic? I'd also love to get them properly cleaned and anodized to help slow down the effects of road salt. (other suggestions on how to do that would be great too), if there's someone who could do a 200TDI rebuild at the same time that would be even better.

Paul Safari can point you in the right direction if he does not do it himself.

I also heard good things about this guy, but never used him.

So I'm at the point of pulling the 200TDI, LT77 (which isn't going back in, and I found two rather big holes in the front of the bellhousing in the process but I have arranged an R380 already anyway) and LT230.

Does anyone have any other recommendations on rebuilders for the 200TDI? This one only has 440,000mi on it and seems to still be pulling strong but I know this won't last. I am located in Ottawa, Canada so somewhere within say a 6 hour drive would be nice. If it turns out to be too much I'll probably just order a reman long-block from Turners but as with all projects there are plenty of places to put the already limited budget.
