Default Good shop in the Greenville SC area?

I am looking for a good shop to work on my LML. I need to have HG installed. Prices in Phx, Az are too expensive -$7500 - $8500.

Wow!!! Around here shops charge 4000-7500. With 7500 being the places that are ripping people off....

Holy crap! I got a hair under $4500 into mine when I replaced them last year. It is a lly not a lml but I don't think that makes a huge difference. Here's what was done

1. Complete hg kit with arp studs from cotnp

2. S&B cai

3. MA tig welded water pump

4. Bosch fpr

5. Lml drivers side manifold

6. Profab egr delete tube (just welded my uppipe shut)

7. Magna flow down pipe

8. Replaced various coolant and fuel lines that are normally hard to get too

9. That $4500 was out the door, labor, shop charges for going thru the heads, new oil & coolant, and all the parts mentioned above.

So that gives you a rough idea.....sounds like those shops are really trying to bend you over!

They don't like working on GM. All of the shops that I have talked to prefer Fords. Easier to work on once they pull the body off.

I might have to run up to Mn if I can't find anything below the I-40.

Just dropped off my load here in Tappahannock, Va. Sitting in a hotel room and heading out tomorrow preferably south and west from here.
Talked to a guy today and he said that I would be better off with a whole engine swap instead of a HG repair. He is not a fan of tuners or high mileage diesel motor owners. I don't see the need to give up on my stock motor and shell out even more money for motor swap.
