Smile UIM repair

I have just moved to Denver CO and found out that my 01 Bonneville'* (with 230,000 miles) upper air intake manifold has failed. I don’t have a garage to do the work in, dose anyone have a recommendation as to where to get the car fixed?
Thanks Ryan

Getting the upper intake off isn't much work, as long as you have a nice day you can do it outside. What'* wrong with the intake? Cracked?

And you shouldn't get oil in the coolant. It'* filling the LIM and then cylinders.
