Default Looking for someone to do a 5 speed swap in DC area

HI all. I'm moving to the Virginia/DC area in 3 weeks and bringing my ALH Golf with me. It has a failing autotragic and needs to be 5 speed swapped. I was planning on doing this with a friend of mine here in WA, but now with an unexpected transfer I don't have the time. I have all the swap parts minus a clutch/flywheel I will get new and a clutch line I need to acquire. Being that VA has strict inspection and emissions testing, I know I wont pass with the CEL. So that means I need to find someone to do the swap fairly quickly once I arrive. I don't mind having to drive a few hours to drop off. Thanks for your time!

Here's a link to the Trusted TDI Mechanics MAP.

TDIClub members close to DC are Matt (car54) in Woodbridge, VA; Tom (ninedee_golf_tdi) in Stafford, VA; and Oliver (TDIRacing) in Kingsville, MD north of Baltimore. I know that Oliver has done these before, but not sure about Matt or Tom. Their contact info is on the map page.

So you're going to fix the Touareg after all?
