You don't really need someone special to do that. Places like Midas should do the job just fine.

if you go there to precision tune tell them Pablo sent you. He was the Ac delco gm district manager. they jump when you mention his name. they have worked on my roush there. i forget his name but the old bald guy who is addicted to pain pills is the best tech there. i think its bob. i drive through there all the time. one of my best friends with a svt lives close to there.
