+1 on RRT motor sports, Raif is great to deal with!!

Yeah Raif tuned my car and built my trans/TC. He's great to do business with.

I've worked with Buschur and CBRD - Buschur does excellent works and stands behind their modifications/tune. CBRD does great tuning, but make sure you know who's actually turning the wrenches on any modifications - results can vary, and its sometime hard to get someone live if needed.

STM in Rochester, NY. Been taking my Evo's there for 7 years now. They've done some great work on my Evo's and friends Evo and Emery's tunes are solid. Might be a bit of a hike for ya but I've never had a bad experience with them.

Haha I would for my IX not for the X. X ill probably be doing Etunes with them...or ill end up driving there anyway for the dyno day. I used to live in Albany NY took at least two trips out there a year. Parts, tunes and builds all through them. Had a few bad experiences with other shops (will not name) so I'm sticking to what I know and trust. But everyone has their own preference!

Just curious with those shops you had a bad experience with. Shoot me a PM if you feel like it, I'd love to compare which shops they were.
