    I do not know of any specific shop in your area but this engine is usually very reliable and is very straight forward to work on. You have several options, you can rebuild your engine if the internal engine damage has not rendered the components not rebuildable . Downside it will take a little longer as the engine will have to be removed disassembled, machine work carried out ,reassembled and installed. Or you can replace the engine with a re manufactured engine which would mean less down time with out your truck. Look for a repair shop that specialize in Toyota or Asian car repair, ask friends or workmates for there recommendations of repair shops they have had good experiences with and can trust.
    The "cheapest" re manufactured engine will not necessarily be the best quality, ask if the shop have fitted engines from this manufacturer in the past, have they had any problems and what warentee is offered on the engine and labor. Labor alone will be 15 to 20 hours.
