Question Affordable Swap Shops In Phoenix

Looking for a reputable engine swap shop in the Phoenix area that wont charge me an arm and leg. I have a 95 EX civic coupe with an auto D16Z6 vtec. Im looking to get it replaced with another D16 vtec, preferably rebuilt or mildly used is fine. So I am looking for a shop that will provide the engine and do the swap.
I found a guy on craigslist that could do the swap for about 1500, with a rebuilt D16 but its craigslist so im sure I should not trust him, https://phoenix.craigslist.org/wvl/pts/5447712540.html. Reviews on this guy would be appreciated.
So if anyone can direct me to an affordable shop you or someone you know has worked with and has resulted in a good experience I would appreciate the help. The phone number of the person I should contact at the shop and websites would be great too.

Yea, I've seen that dude around craigslist a while. Knew one person that bought a motor from him. It turned out good. A bit expensive for my taste, but then again, I'm a cheap ass that does everything myself. Also, this motors are getting more expensive.

Give built by notorious and tsr a call.

On a side note, this is easy,rebuilding is a little time consuming but easy.

That's a high compression motor in that Craig list ad. I wouldn't get unless you plan on getting a tune.

Try build by notorious or tsr. Both more than willing to.help you out.

Ended up going with BBN, place looks pretty clean and the guys there seem professional. Pricing for what i was looking for is better at BBN than TSR. Although upon inspection Bryant suggested to just work on my current engine for it did not need to be replaced, he seemed to want to help me save money. Thank you guys for point in me the the right direction, hopefully the work done by BBN will turn out good.
