Default Looking for decent shop around Pittsburgh

I'm considering buying a 01-02 T/A or 05-06 GTO. I was hoping someone could drop a few names of reputable shops in/around Southwestern, PA. Some place that specializes in LS based engines, if and when there was some work I needed to get done. Tuning/exhaust/cam install, etc. The only place I've found is Rapid Motorsports but that's in Reading.

Thanks.

I'm sure he wants to stay local for a reason. As great as the two shops mentioned are, I'm not sure he wants to travel 3+ hours in each direction.
