Default where to take my car to get tuned in Ga

hey guys, i'm wrapping up my heads and cam swap on my ls1, i'm wondering who's the go to guy for tuning a ls1 in the state. I have a ls1 with tsp prc stage 2.5 heads, bbk ssi intake manifold, and a tsp ms3. looking to get a 90mm tb before i get it tuned too. Just figured i'd ask, i'm relatively new to the ls1 thing, and normally just do all my own work, so idk what all shops are good with tuning and what not.

thanks

I would recommend Vengeance Racing. I've had nothing but good experiences there.

Spartan/Damian, he is slightly metrosexual other than that he can tune.

Spartan/Damian. Quality guy and he does great work. No knowledge of any metrosexual tendancies. Vengeance is a good shop as well.

Spartan FTW. Vengenece is nice but I when I met those guys at the f-body gathering they really had a "our **** don't stink" attitude.

yeah, thats the type of attitude i dont like. spartan seems like the way to go... now just to finish up the car and get it to him, now i just need to find a 90-92mm cable driven throttle body. preferibly 3 bolt, but i can drill and tap my manifold to make a 4 bolt if need be.

Sorry you got that impression... We pride ourselves on excellent work/customer service and at the end of the day we will sit down with anyone and have a cold beverage and talk cars...

If you know who you met at the Gathering please PM me and Ill be happy to follow up as this is NOT the impression we ever want to give people.

FWIW to the OP, Damian is an excellent guy. I have known him for 10+ years and he is good people. If for some reason you dont make the drive to see him feel free to stop by our shop as we would be more than happy to help you as well.

Rest assured gentlemen.. Our **** stinks just like everyone elses

Brooks tuned pewter5.3's car. He was happy with the tune. His car didn't dyno high numbers but it runs good at the track.
