Default Need to find a shop in MA for tuning

Hi guys my name is daniel and I jsut bought a new 2009 pontiac G8 GT and I am trying to get some input on a couple of things. I am looking at headers and am torn between SLP and American racing headers. Also I needs to find a good shop in the eastern or central MA area. I need them for header install and tuning. Can anyone help me with this... THANKS!

never heard of it, most of us usually stick with the sponsors on the site because they give killer deals and are proven. most of the sponsors here have a following, myself personally i will stick with slowhawk as he has always been fair, reasonable, and honest. his work speaks for itself. just know if ya go somewhere and it gets hack up all you will hear is "we told ya so". but your best bet is to do a search in this forum with their name and maybe find some feed back. slowhawk isnt far from you, i would get a estimate from both and make the appropriate decision good luck

Definitely slowhawk. Don does all his own tuning. Check out his specials on headers and installs also. I would not trust anyone else to work on my stuff.

Ive met all the guys at ESP and they know what they are doing and I feel that I can trust them with my car. They did a few dyno runs for me and they got a good handle on the car. Also while I was there they just finished installing a twin turbo kit on a new GTO and did a custom engine build for a 300c with a supercharger and customer exhaust. I will check out slowhawk next week and see how there shop is.

No offence.. but why are you bothing to ask for suggestions if your going to another shop in the same day???

Slowhawk does great turning and pretty much everyone said him...

I don't know but if I'm going to bother asking advise i'd listen to it...

I'll take this as an opportunity to thank Don for tuning my car. I am finishing the build of the car in my sig and as Don says.. I'm no electrical engineer so the car went to him less than perfect. He not only tuned the car but also diagnosed and resolved about a half dozen issues with my setup over a course of about 5-6 hours.


Go to Slowhawk
