Question Fly-in/Drop-Off Engine Overhaul Shops

Folks,

Anyone know of a good/reputable engine overhaul shop in the southeast, basically the southeastern quadrant of the country, where you can take your plane and they do all of the work on-site: removal, overhaul, reinstall?
...basically a one-stop shop, rather than pulling/crating/shipping the engine.

Thanks!

Try Gann Aviation in Lafayette Ga. They are a full service shop and have a great reputation for building engines.

You could also try Twin Aircraft Engines in Newnan, GA. I used them for something on my engine and they drove to me to repair at my airport. Good dudes.

Curious about this:

Supply chain issues being what they are: Where do they put your airplane if the overhaul takes four months?

I'm assuming they're at CCO?

That would be VERY convenient for getting back home, back for pickup. Easy Uber to/from Hartsfield.
