Local Area FF Tuner Shops ????????

Does anyone know of local Tuner shops, garages, or people who service focuses in the Philly / Eastern PA area?

PLEASE HELP!!!!!

All the places I find are for foreign and non domestic cars. And I don't trust them to do it right.
I know I am not experienced enough nor do I have a Home Garage in which do work in so this is what it has come to. Mods such as exhaust, udp, or other labor intensive projects are just out of my reach until I can find somewhere to have them done or do them with some help. When you live in a row home and have only a city street to work on your car with, options and opportunity just are not there.

Thanks for any help in advance.

i feel you on the "city street" thing. i used to live in baltimore city. used the back alley to do my car work. lol. exhaust and UDP are things that i would DEFINITELY save the money on, and do myself, though. just get a good set of jack stands, and you'll be good to go. if you can find an alleyway that is dipped in the middle for drainage, it'll allow for some extra room under the middle of your car to do your exhaust.

Can't use the back alley. Because I don't even have a back yard. It's more of a "crawl space", meaning there is only enough space to put my trash there throughout the week for pickup. Can't block the back alley because it is 1 1/2 Car widths wide. And for some reason people drive through it often. Finding some place other my street to work on my car in south philly is difficult because I live between Tasker and Wilson projects which means I only have one eye for the car and the other for the street. (IE.) on coming traffic and other ruthless s.h.i.t.
