Default WANTED: Good engine builder in NE Ohio

Hello fellow Subaru owners,

I have a 05 5AT LGT Wagon, 142k miles. No mods other than bigger Anti Roll bars. Ever since I got the car 3.5 years ago, it intermittently threw P0302 cylinder misfire on #2. It would go away within a few days and not come back for months just to repeat. I do smell gas on start up which goes away, so I thought it was the injector.

This year, it has been happening more frequently. I have done following,

1. New plugs. NGK iridium. Gapped at 0.028"
2. Swapped injector with # 1 cylinder
3. Swapped coil with # 4 cylinder
4. Cleaned MAF sensor
5. Checked vacuum leaks
6. Compression test (cold)
#1 125 psi
#2 115 psi
#3 125 psi
#4 122 psi

So far, all steps, the code comes back as P0302.

Compression #'s are not great but its an old car and I did the test cold. No obvious culprits other than slightly low on #2.

So its either the valve clearance or Ringland. I have ruled out ringland since I have NO oil consumption.

My ask:
  1. What engine builders exist in NE ohio ?
    If I pull the engine myself, are there any Subaru places in the Cleveland/ Pittsburgh/Youngstown/Columbus area that can rebuild heads to OEM level. I dont want to take these to NON Subaru guys.
  2. What is the cost to rebuild heads ?

Thanks for your help.

There is turn in concepts in Cinci (bought the car from a guy from there) and strictly performance in kalamazoo MI. But they are 4.5 hours away. If I can find a shop like that with a lot of experience in building these engines, that would be ideal.
