Default Coyote swap in 67 Stang

NEED HELP!
Recently had a mustang performance shop do a coyote engine swap into my 67 Mustang. Horrible experience. Two years and a ton of money later the car is not right. While driving home from the shop, the car quit and I had to have it flat bedded. The wiring harness, which I purchased new for the coyote engine, was major mis-installed. Took car to a well known shop in L.A. Who quoted an outlandish price to repair. Can anyone please steer me to a qualified shop in the L.A. Metro that can fix my wiring issue at a reasonable cost?

I had a similar experience with a 32 Ford I had built. The problem you are going to run into is that any shop you take it to will pretty much have to start from scratch because they didn't f' it up in the first place and will have to spend a lot of time to track down the problem. There is nothing harder than trying to fix someone else's hot rodding mistakes.

If you don't mind driving an hour east (2+ hours if traffic) then check out GTR High Performance in Rancho Cucamonga. Like any specialty performance shop they are not inexpensive, but they specialize in Mustangs, are honest and know what they're doing.

Any mechanic, especially a good one, is going to charge an arm and a leg to fix some one else's work. Was the engine installed with an OE harness or a control pack harness? Those are pretty simple harnesses.
