Exclamation Any good LS1 motor shops in STL area?

I've had an oil leak on the driver's side for a while now. I know it must be dripping from above the header because the header is stained with oil. I've already replaced the valve cover gaskets. There is also a leak somewhere at the back of the engine underneath and the transmission bellhousing.

I need a shop here in St. Louis to check it out as I've been putting it off for months now. Everyone I talk to has some kind of attitude about working on LS1's.

This may be a stupid question, but can they do a dye test to see where the leak is coming from??

TIA for your help. The weather is beautiful this week and it gives me more initiative to get 'er back on the road.

go in there and post looking for help.... lots of good ls1 people in your area
Rule to live by when buying or selling:
if you get a pm from a potential buyer where it is difficult to read (spelling, grammar) then you may want to skip that person and go to the next. As you can now see it can be a reflection of the mindset of the person who has contacted you.
