Default Maryland and Virgina people; where to get motor swapped?

I need to find a place that will work on a turbo'd car. Specifically, I'm looking for someone to swap my bottom end.

The only place I can think of is York automotive, but I don't know if they'll touch a turbo'd car.

Any others?

Thanks

I built a motor, spun a rod bearing, then replaced the bearings which seemed to work for a while. I'm starting to get some bottom end noise again, so I'm throwing in the towel on this block. I have another built bottom end on the way.

? Do you need someone to assemble the motor? Or just someone to remove the longblock and put the new one in?
