^^ that's funny ...

IF you want you can go visit the guys at Alamo Autosports ... they use to have and work on foci ... a good shop (Not the greatest customer service) but good mechanics.

If you want work with no price limit ... you can also look into Jotech ... though a Import Shop (Hondas / Acuras / Mitsubishi) I was sent my car to them for a part or 2 ... good guys.

Or of course ask our fellow members like VenomRogue here for some help.

the owner of alamo gets on my nerves sometimes.
he treats u like a pos when u go in there and ask how much stuff would be like work or parts.
then he always questions you like making you not think about what u want to do anymore.

yes they do good work but personally i will never use them.

i know of a guy at work who is going to do all my work if i cant do it. and i drive svt.

he has plenty of experience mostly Mitsubishi evos and Subarus but yeah.

If it's still Brice ... then yeah he can be quite a douche ...

His old partner use to be real cool ... but they split because of Brice.

Well ... good luck Turboteg90 in finding a shop or person to help you out.

umm that would be me in the pics, and i did the work. The only real problem i had was the ECU.

If you are really willing to do this, and if you can. You can bring it to my base in OKC where i have a full shop and air tools. the only thing is that you need to have everything for this sway(EVERYTHING) and pay the fee to keep it there. i think it like $40 a month to keep it there.
