i am trying to purchess a car on here for sale ( it has a turbo 5.3l lm7) but he is currently running 91 octain and since i can easily pick up 93 oct around here i figured ide just use 93 and then get the tune dialed in and possably get a second tune for e85( like a switch to swap tunes). i live in columbus and i was hoping i could get a few names of people who are around the columbus area who i can trust tuning the car and doing it right( lm7 hate spark knock) and i dont want a blown motor due to a crappy tune. so if anyone on here has any advice who to goto or who to stay away from i would much appriciate it. i rilly dont want this turning into a "this shops great" < nah they suck they blew my motor thread but if something did happen tell me so i can stay away from that shop... rilly i know a couple tuners around here and all seem to have people who like them and people who say they are the worst out there so please i need some help lol.

Thanks alot Nick

Btw i dont have the car yet but if all pans out i will be geting withen the next 2weeks or so.

Not sure how far you are from KY but Anthony at FastrackPerformance in Louisville is a great tuner. He specializes in custom turbo fabrication for Fbody, Vettes, Mustangs, Vipers, etc. He almost had the 5.3l stock shortblock record. Almost 30lbs of boost on a stock block! If he wasn't good at tuning, I don't think he could have done that, lol. My car runs and drives great on E85. Shoot me a PM and I'll give you his number.
