Default Any Good Shops In Houston?

Anyone know of any good shops in the Houston area? Im at about 84k miles and im pretty sure im due for the dreaded timing chain/tensioners. My engine is definitely making the sound for it, especially once its warmed up and idling. I just wonder how much longer I have if I let it go. I was going to get some quotes and possibly get it done this weekend. So what would be a reasonable price for parts and labor? Thanks.

Yo, there's a performance shop that I go to when I need work done to the max. It's called Asaa racing,when I had my 6thgen I got my motor replaced there and they did a pretty good job. If you have that tensioner problem take care of it Asap or you'll end up like me having to get the motor replaced. I tried to wait a lil longer and ended up bending a rod.

Wow, just got quoted by the dealership $243 for parts, and $1440 for labor for a total of just over $1750 after tax. Surely I can get a better deal at a independent shop.

Do you know of any shops other than dealers that do decent work? Or maybe a trusted mechanic?

Thanks quinn, hitting this place in houston and will give a future result on the service or cost. This would be rather helpful for those who live near here. Plus our cars not getting older.

I had meant to post this but i forgot.
I went to ASAA Racing and had my BBK installed.
One line was not installed correctly.

Click the image to open in full size.

Click the image to open in full size.

The line snapped as i pulled in to get an inspection.
Best place it could have happened.
It was fixed in under 2 hours as i had extra lines.

I have been real busy and did not even call ASAA about it so i cant say anything as to how they would deal with it.

It is a real nice atmosphere at the shop.
The guys are real cool.
The Right side was done perfectly.

I am thinking about getting the rear BBK so i will talk to them then.
