    The engine in my 09 4 banger is toast. Any one out there have recommendations for a shop in the San Luis Obispo area that can do a motor swap for me?

    Thanks

    Drove it through the river at Pismo. Hydrolock. Motor is siezed.


    .\EDIT
    Actually, let me re-phrase that:

    I drove it into the river. If I had drove it through the river, we would not be having this conversation. :)

    Great description of Hydrolock on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hydrolock
