Looking for a Mechanic in Colorado or Maryland

Im looking for a mechanic in the Colorado area or Maryland area to work on my 1991 Jeep YJ on swapping in a 4.0L. I have a 2.5L right now and was wondering the price that it might cost to upgrade. I can get all the parts for about $2,400 it that a fair price?

Wow, thats a heck of a commute!

I think that is too high of a price. I think you can find a better deal. For that kind of money you can almost swap in a 350. Of course I say that after putting $2500 in my 258! If I had to do it over again I'd put in a small block.

Re: Looking for a Mechanic in Colorado or Maryland

Well im in college right now in Colorado and home during the winter in Maryland [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

The total budget is under 5k with parts and install fee
Any other choices I have with this budget other than putting in a 4.0L? I don't know much about working on cars (I did just install a new rad 3 layer core myself)
The reason I need a new engine is because it blows out a quart of oil every 150 miles.
