Looking for recommendations for an engine installer in the Philly area. I have a '12 which needs an engine replacement (CBFA). Looking to source the engine myself and just need a good mechanic.

Thanks in advance!

I ended up finding a 60k mile engine with warranty through www.car-part.com. I had a dealer (Fred Beans VW) install it for me for about $2500. They came recommended to me and surprisingly were cheaper than most independent shops. I ended up having some other work done like DSG service and carbon cleaning. All in it was about $6k. They did a great job and no issues so far with more than 10k miles added since.

Oh man, thats a great ending to this story! thanks for the follow up.

Great idea to get carbon and stuff done while the car was half apart. It sucks to eat the increased labor/parts cost when already doing so much other work but its so worth having the car in tip top shape. Those "while you're there" upgrades can run up a tab.
