NE shop for LT77->R380?

I've got a bit of an interesting rover. 1992 3.9 5-speed, w/o ABS, seems to have grown up in the middle east (engine bay placards in Arabic) and I'm looking for a reputable shop in the NE to take care of it and perform some upgrades.

It has a tired LT77, showing slop and 1-2 problems (assuming worn mainshaft/input gear on LT230), tired syncros and a transfer case lever that won't go into lock. I would like someone that knows their stuff to do an R380 upgrade and provide some LT230 TLC, but I'm a little wary as think this is slightly tricky on the rover, as the most widely available R380 is the 'short' version used on US Defenders.

Anyhow, any recommendations? Is Congleton the real deal? I'm in NYC, but willing to travel/transport in the NE.

Felix of independent land rover service in queens.
https://www.indlr.com/ ? Can you give me some more details about your experience with him?
we went to land rover school together, share ideas and troublesome vehicles, dedicated staff well versed.
btw the people you suggested are in maryland, they are not the place in NY. I would not recommend the MD people.
I couldn't find the place you reference in queens. Got a link/website/phone number?

I've heard very good things about Felix. Have not used him personally but a friend has.
Awesome, thank you both - I will report back.
