I was going to bring my car to tapp auto but these guys think im just some punk kid who doesn't know anything about my car. I call in and the guy is trying to explain to me that they cant just throw the headgasket on and out the door, there is machining involed etc. I tell them what i want and they give me a quote for 2100 fucking dollars.. like what the fuck. I told them I wanted my head pulled off, inspect block and head, if block is ok machine head, cometic headgasket, arp studs, any new seals that can be replaced, oil change and cooling flush. she tells me that price of 2100.. like HOLY shit.

Anyone know of a good shop in ottawa area that treats the little guys just as good as the big guys?

That isn't too far of actually. There is a lot more to it than yanking the head and sticking it back on. If the block deck and head have impressions from the fire ring of the HG, they BOTH need machining.
