Default Mississippi

Hello all, I lurked on this site long before I even had a LS1, so helpful then and even more helpful now that I own one.

I have a 99 Trans Am with stock 3.23's which I had for about 9 months now. So far I got a magnaflow catback, slp lid, and a ported TB. When I get more free time I will be installing a LS6 intake, SSRA, LT's and an ORY, which are already in the garage. After that I'm thinking it will be awhile before I go the Cam/Heads route.

With that said After I get everything I currently have installed, does anyone know a good tuner in or around central Mississippi? I ask because I read on this site it would be a good idea to get a tune after something like LT's and what not, especially if you aren't going to be doing anything else for awhile. Kind of new to LS1's and would like to know if there are any good reputable Tuners around my way.

Thanks.

I know a guy around Smith County that did a decent job tuning my car for cash. I could see if he'd do it for you.

There's a guy named Dana Watkins that tunes Ls1 cars around Byram. He's really good. He owns watkins radiator service.

Don't know of any in central Mississippi but up here in northwest Mississippi there are plenty. Even more in Memphis. I'm blessed with plenty of credible speed shops and tuners in my area. If your ever up here, drop me a PM. We've got a little fbody club up here and theres always room for more.

I've seen his shop before, it's right off I-55 if I remember correctly. Does he do dyno tunes?

Thanks, I will do that. I'm either in Memphis or around South Haven at least once a month.
