good clutch installer in Austin?

Hello fellow Texans,
I am looking for a shop to install a flywheel and sport clutch in my 2002 S. I am in the Austin area and aside from the dealer I cant find a shop to do the work.
As a side note, what should this cost?

Thanks!!
James

Dealer here is $1800. Good Indy german car shop is $1200. Includes parts but not the flywheel which both say is around $900.

How many miles did you get out of your clutch? I'm at 74k and I think I will need one in the next 5-10k miles. Dealer said most only go 40k. That seems low.

I am at 45K. I dont really notice the clutch slip unless i really punch it and shift hard, then it will slip and when I stop at a light I can smell it.
I bet if I would drive like a normal person, I could get another 20K out of it.
I am taking advantage of the worn clutch to install a light flywheel and a sprung clutch.
