Best Dealership in Texas for an Engine Replacement?

I have a S2 that is about to run out of engine core warranty and was wondering who has had an exceptional experience getting an engine swapped and where?

Previously on my S1, Jeff Haas Mazda in Houston, TX did an OK job on my last engine swap but my car came back with some issues it didn't have before (chipped paint on inner front fenders, loose belts that squeaked at high RPMs, intermittent power steering issues, damaged firewall insulation and broken plastic brackets).

I would not trust Jeff Haas to park my RX8, much less fix it. They screwed up the front suspension on my 6, charged me for dent removal (but couldnt get the dents out!) and could never deliver a car on time.

Well out of warranty yeah, my car has not been touched by any non SARX member since my last reman was installed. I won't even let them do the recalls that are outstanding.
