independent shop for engine work on 2005 MCS/R53 ?

Hi All-

Getting some terrible tapping/clicking from the engine on my 2005 MCS/R53 -- still trying to diagnose a bit more, but there's a good change this is a fairly serious issue.

At minimum will probably require pulling the intercooler/supercharger/waterpump to check them out. At max, pulling the head off to take a look at what's going on with possible engine rebuild/replace. Looking for someone comfortable and competent with this kind of work. Overall, it's probably a little more work/time than what I'm comfortable doing myself, so looking for a trusted garage.

Will probably flatbed to the garage regardless, but would prefer someone as close as possible to downtown / east end Pittsburgh.

I've seen previous mentions of Shade's and McB. Any other recommendations, or competent garages closer to Pgh?

Thanks!
-Stephan
