Default Best LS1 shops in San Diego?

Posted this ages ago, figured I'd give it another shop. Basically, I'm sick of taking my car places I don't trust, so I figured I'd ask you guys in the SoCal area what shops you take your cars to in or around San Diego...looking to have my car dropped pretty soon, and maybe a mild cam..

None to trust within San Diego. I've been taking my car up to CMS in Lake Elsinore and they've been great.

The best shop closest to San Diego is definately CMS. ****...they are by far the best shop in SoCal.

I thought that was a little odd too. I mean if you're not comfortable mentioning the shop name to everyone.......

I don't mind saying it right here...

don't go to Luis Transmissions... which doesn't seem like the type of work your getting done anyways, which is why I didn't mention the name... but it's a tranny shop in San Diego that I got a clutch installed, they didn't put any sealer on my crankshaft/flywheel bolts and my new clutch was oil soaked and ruined. Then of course they denied everything... took them to the BBB and of course that was pointless.... anyways, that's my story and a shop I DON'T recommend...
