Talking JDM Swap experienced shops in Pac Northwest

I will be moving to the area soon, bringing a JDM STi engine with me. I am not familiar with the area as far as good garages, so I'm looking for advice on a place to get the swap done into a GC8 chassis. Location can be anywhere in the Pac Northwest, including Washington Oregon and Idaho, but I would prefer northern Oregon. Some place with experience in swapping engines, specifically subarus, JDM experience a plus also.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Derek

I would highly recommend Asian Auto Specialties in Bend, Oregon. He is a 20+ year ASE certified tech that specializes in Subarus and JDM swaps. The website is www.asianauto1320.com , ph#541-318-6359.

Talking Thanks!

Thanks for the suggestions guys, I'll look into both of those when I get back stateside.


D.A.R.E - Yeah I'm based out of Fuji, I know another guy at Zama, he goes by wrx_sti_ver4 here on the forums. You know him? You driving a WRX or B4 out here? I would have if I was staying longer, but not worth it if I am only around for a year.

SSLegacyGT, I'm one of the mechanics over at rallitek and a big fan of the GC8's. Both sean and my brother own 2.5's and they are so much better and funner to work on then wrx's (less things to cut yourself on). What mods have you done to your car? With the engine are you getting a clip with the harness and tranny or just the longblock? I'm here to help out more than sell our products but I'm sure you have some questions about the swap no matter who you go with. At the very least give sean a ring he's very helpful and know a lot about subarus. 503-309-8645

As for shipping, on the MR2 forums I've seen a thread about good shipping companies to go with for shipping engines. I've not personally shipped a engine before so I cant vouch for the shipping company but it might be worth looking into if you need a place to ship it. the forums are at www.board.mr2faq.com and under the parts forums, look in the 90-99 section of the for sale forums. If I can get the site to work I'll post you a link to the thread.
