McNews Automotive A+++

I had my svt with a jrsc tuned Sunday morning and they went above and beyond the call of what I was looking for. When I got there we noticed a tear in my belt and they got on the phones and ordered me a new one and installed it in no time. As for the tuning, it went as smooth as possible. Once the belt was installed it was only about an 1 1/2 hours to tune the car. The car put down 199hp and 165ftlbs and it runs like a dream. I will bring any future car back to them for tuning. Ray was a very knowledgeable guy and has probably tuned a few hundred focuses. I love the way my car turned out and if your thinking of getting your car tuned and you live in PA I highly recommend going to McNews Automotive. Thanks guys

I had to take mine to them for tuning; loved it! I recommend them to ANYONE in MD... it's not too far of a drive to have someone get it right the first time! They also helped straighten everything out when the mt285 was swapped in. Great Focus shop they got there!

Ray must tune Focus' in his sleep...

I think my bill was 550 but mine cost more because we ran into problems and they had to run out and find a replacement 106.5 inch belt which isn't that easy to find but that was my fault and not theirs. I'd say if everything went smoothly and there was no problems I'd say 450 for a tune. You can just call Ray and ask, he's a great guy and always looking to help.

It was a good 2 hour drive for me but it was totally worth it. Ray really knows what he's talking about. I think he eats, sleeps and dreams tuning haha

They've done work on my car recently and a friend I know from the area had his Focus worked on at their shop, A++ in my book! They had what looked like a gray shop Focus in their display at Motorama in Harrisburg last month and that thing was really nice and showed their quality of work well

if they just weren't 1,473 miles from me..... do you guys know of anything of this sort of quality closer to the south side?
cause if it was just the tune i'd ask tom, but I need my engine inspected and probably retimed (even tho it's not throwing code), so I'm looking for shop with experience on Focus'es
