V8 Engine rebuild Atlanta

I have a defender 90 1994 NAS with 97000 miles and need to see who might be a good resource for engine rebuild. My engine may have a damaged head or gasket from overheating and has developed engine knock.
I have a mechanic who will install rebuilt engine but looking for someone local who might rebuild my engine.
Depending on ultimate cost may be needing to sell as is, so if anyone out there is in the market for a great buy this vehicle might be it.

The Shop is the local preferred independent LR shop. I would talk with them.

But in truth, but the time you get a full rebuilt done, a cannibal V8 is getting competitive in price.

Cannibal V8 Engines

Its been my experience that anything related to vehicle repair here in ATL is never cheap and way too many shops out there will do a half-proper job.

Just had a ACR 4.8l HiTorque installed in my 110. I highly recommend them.
