Shop to do CDV swap

Hey guys.. anyone have a shop recommendation for doing a CDV swap? I'm looking for someplace that can do it in 1/2 hour.

Thanks!

They can pull it in half hour. Good luck bleeding the fluid in that half hour.

Shop then adds "we might have to do a brake flush" for $118. Geez.

Dave knows best.

It takes half hour just to get the car on a lift, pull all the covers, remove CDV. Then if you are lucky enough to have a second person pumping. You'll need at least another half hour to bleed the fluid.

Took me almost 2 hours. But I didn't replace the valve. I made slack w lines and clamped them back without the valve. The pumping was a pita.
