looking to upgrade the sub, small space

Spent the $ to have a shop do an install in my wife's '05 Rav4 about 5 years ago.
- Focal 130VR up front
- Kicker 8" Comp VR in 'glass stealthy enclosure
- Steg Twister F4 380 (95w x 2 + 290W)

They butchered the sub enclosure which leaked air like it was breathing heavy and after having the car for an additional 2 weeks told me they couldn't make it work and proceeded to shoehorn a 6.5" Comp VT into the same location without any 'glass. I was sick of fighting with them about it, and my wife was sick of not having her car, so that was that.
All this time later, I am finally looking to properly 'glass an 8" in there and get the bass back.
I am looking for recommendations for a shallow mount sub that will play well with the Focals.
Also, for the same reason that I didn't do the original install (I promised my wife I wouldn't "mess" with her car) I am looking for someone who wants to take on a small project.
Replies and/or PMs would be much appreciated. I am in the Newmarket area, but anywhere in the GTA is fine.
