I took my Rover in to these guys to replace the head gasket. It took them about 4 days (about what I would expect). After I go the Rover back I noticed a burning smell. It was the breather lines. They did not put them back where they go and they where left next to the exhaust manifold. 2 weeks later I was in VA and the Rover shutdown. The dealer in Richmond told me that the had broken the inertia cut off and had taped it back to fire wall. They also found that the throttle cable had been put back on wrong (making it pinch and kink), The spark plugs where the wrong size and gaped incorrectly, The secondary air pump was not tightened and leaking, the coil pack was just sitting loose on the back of the intake (missing the bolts), the right side exhaust manifold has 2 stripped bolts, and the right side down-pipe was loose from the manifold causing it to warp and crack.
All and all it cost me $1600 at the dealer to fix what they did wrong. Also the safety factor or the cut switch and the throttle cable.
Yea the head job was done well but they did not put everything back the way it should be and so it cost me 2 times.

I'm the owner of Quinn's Automotive and we have never done a Land Rover Head Gasket. I think you are listing under the wrong business. There are a few Quinn's Automotive across the country.
