Need to find a good reasonable shop with the racks to pull apart my 06 TDI Touareg (PNW)

I'm in Spokane and my mechanic has determined the turbo on the passenger side is frozen and preventing the wastegate from closing. I need to find a shop that has the racks in place to pull the body off and get both turbos replaced with modern Garretts. I'll probably source the turbos myself to save a little money. Anyone reading these posts know of a competent shop who won't rob me blind to do this? Also needs a new axle on the drivers front.

Talk to Aaron Kammeyer (sp?) At cascade german. He has several of the v10 tregs and likely knows someone who does his work.

That was a nice thought and I appreciate your response. Still searching... The trick, for me, is I don't want to re-install stock turbos. I want to stuff larger Garret canisters into the housings for a little better volume, and, of course, it'll need to be tuned. I'm pretty much willing to take it anywhere west of the Mississippi...
