Default Recommended shop or "independent mechanic" for oil leaks...

I have a 97 Outback 2.5 automatic.
It is leaking oil from what appears to be the valve covers, oil pan and oil separator plate.

I realize this is an engine-out procedure and am looking for any recommended shops or "good guys" near Ontario, CA to do this work for me.

I normally do all my own mechanical work on all my cars going on 12 years now, but just don't feel like doing this one.

Dealer wanted $3k - local craigslist Subaru guy wanted $800+.

About $500 is my go/no-go line for just doing it myself.
Anybody know where to go?

FYI that doesn't require the motor to be removed.

On a 97 Outback. Itd make the jobs alot easier. Take way less work pulling that motor vs fighting with it in.

Ralli Candi in Rancho Cucamonga, one of the best Subaru performance shops in the nation.

The only way to know for sure is to contact them for a quote. I can confirm that Cornerspeed Tuning is very responsive if you leave them a message.

None of those shops will touch it for that price. Your best bet is to contact Danny here on SCIC, formerly of Apollo. I will look for his UN.

Danny has been my go to man for a while. He was working out of his personal garage for a while but he is working at Snap-on now (last I heard from him), and I don't think he's been active here anymore. It doesn't hurt to try and message him though. He goes by WRB Kid here.
