Default Engine swap business/DC area?

Hello,
In other posts, I've mentioned that my cylinder head gasket is leaking.
I don't want to go to a Honda dealership service shop because they are expensive. I've gone to them to do the same thing to an Accord and that was mega-expensive, although the work was good.
I found JE Import Performance in Baltimore, MD but I don't know if anyone has dealt with them before. Let me know and if you have any other shops in the DC/MD/VA area that are reputable and not as expensive as a Honda dealership. Thanks.

It looks like a bit of a complex job. It's got a lot of miles so I would want to replace the water pump and timing belt. I think it's a big job for me because I've never taken off the cylinder head and I don't have nor do I know how to use a timing gun.

Honestly, its not too big of a deal replacing the gasket, and the Honda crank pully has a mark "TDC" And u just move that to the top to "Set" The timing if im correct.
