You can try local. We are here if it doesn't work out for you.

If you notice alot of the people posting here are local to the shops you listed.

Finally got a tune from Slowhawk 1.5 years ago after wasting my time at "other closer shops" and it was well worth the 1.5 hr trip. So worth it that I had them do a heads and cam job on my camaro a few days ago. Well worth it man having peice of mind that your car will be handled by a professional.

Pruven in Milford??? That's an evo shop they don't do ls1s or anything American for that matter.

The only place I can think of around here that ik has some ls experience is mongillio motors in new haven.

I've dealt with Jannetty on a number of occasions, nice guy, friendly but he is all business and he tuned my LT1 car a number of years ago, paid out the *** and that is what you get.

His main clientel are guys with money who drop a car off and leave a blank check, and when it comes to guys who do not have unlimited funds, he still charges good $$$.

There are other shops in CT and if your looking for 3 pulls, wait for a dyno day or something, cheap, and they may throw in some A/F to give you an idea.

Slowhawk did right by me last year with a bothersome DTC error and I would recommend you see him.

Agreed, whatever you do, avoid J&M in manchester like the plague. I wouldnt even let them change the oil on my Jeep.
