    Looking for a (relatively) local "Speed Shop"

    Post  GIJoe2010 on Mon Apr 18, 2011 10:39 pm

    So, since most of us live somewhere's in or around the Seattle/Puget Sound area I'm wondering if anyone has a speed shop they would recommend i.e. suspension, exhaust, engine (heads/cam/etc), drivetrain, and tuning. I've got some mods in mind and need a spot for work that is "above my level."

    I'm also looking at a paint/body place. I need some touch up work on the current paint job.

    I personally haven't gone to this place but I have read some good reviews about it on 6speedonline.com.

    Speed shop - http://www.speedwaremotorsports.com/

    For a quality paint job, check out Perfect Reflections in Olympia. Here's some pics of their work.

    For tuning, I can't say enough good things about The HP Ranch in Auburn.

    Try The Mustang Shop. They bought the dyno from The HP Ranch a few months ago and moved the business from Maple Valley to Auburn. The phone number is 253-218-0323.

    Right you are. But the tuner is no longer John (or w/e his name is).

    I have been reading some troubling things about the new t00ner..

    Andy has tuned a bunch of my cars including my Mustang that makes over 740whp. I have 100% faith in him. John is a friend of mine. He was telling me that Andy has taught him a lot in regards to drivability tuning. My .02

    If you are in fact friends with John, is he still willing to do any tuning?

    One last thing . . for these shops that do dyno-tuning, do they have a particular preference in tuner software?

    I have a DiabloSport Predator and am wondering whom of this list has the software to do the tuning. Thanks
