Moving to Columbia soon, I was wondering about performance shops/dyno tune shops around the area. Along with Race Gas dealers.

The shop I went to doesn't really do much work anymore (CPR Performance), but there's a guy on here that used a shop on Bush River Rd (I think) and he really liked them, so maybe he will chime in. Not sure about race gas, but I know there was a gas station in the Lexington area that had 100 or 110 at the pump.
BTW, you're moving to a city where the car scene is dead unless you drive a Nissan.

Nice, Nissans are fun to kill :)

So, I guess I would have to go to GA or NC for Dyno Tunes and VP 109 Unleaded?

I dono about the 109, but I doubt you'd have to leave the state for it. CPR still does dyno tunes and some of the shops around here use their dyno to do their tuning too. Also, Carolina Chassis Dyno has a mustang dyno but Ive heard the tunes they do on LS motors is disappointing.
Whatchu got in your Camaro?

When I get to SC, I'll hit you up, and we'll meet, so you can see for yourself what I've got.

Sounds like a plan to me. But just know that if you build up anticipation like that and show up with a bolt on LS1, I will be highly disappointed haha. When you movin here?

Well it's not a bolt on LS1, and I'll be there in August.

Eastcoast Performance in Greenville said they'd be able to take care of all my needs, do you have any experience with them?

Nah, never heard anything about them. I sent you a PM about a place in Lexington, but if you're gonna drive all the way to Greenville, I'd go to Hawks Third Gen as I've only ever heard good things about them.

Only issues I have ever had with Hawks is theyve seemed a little high to me. Chris Tuten has a shop on Huger st in down town columbia and have had nothing but amazing sucess with him when it comes to tunning. Its not really that dead around here just who you know. May have to travel some around the state but theres a decent amount of money to be made but be careful theres some cars flying around here!!!
