Can anyone know of a good tune shop around No. VA area (I can't be without my V as it is my daily driver - sending the PCM is not feasible) - I have been working with Tony's corvette for a couple of years and am looking now for someone else who would know a V. I have had bucking issues, too much, too little fuel, bad exhaust type smell, fumes that Lindsay folks have been very helpful in every aspect of trouble shooting these things and all lead to tune from them.

Much appreciated for the feedback -

I haven't had personal experience, but I just read a great review about this guy that just tuned someone's Maggied GTO and they were extremely pleased with the increased driveablility. Probably be worth a shot if they're close by.

LMK if you need another tuner. There is a guy a little more south (Richmond) that only tunes LS motors. Havn't used him personally, but everyone says he is very good.

Is Damian doing his own tunes now, or is he still using Brett at FBC?

I've had Tony's Corvette's, Brett @ FBC, and Jeff @ PSI all tune my car.

I wasn't very impressed with Tony's.

Brett did a great job, however I had to bring the car back a few times to get it tweaked just right. It was easy for the tweaks though, just show up in the evening, and he'd spend 20 minutes with me. Keep in mind though that FBC is in South Baltimore, so it would be a hump for Mick.

Jeff @ PSI seems very talented, and did a great job on my cam install, however getting anything scheduled with him is a PITA. You ahve to call his grandma's cellphone, and leave a message (no shi!t). Additionally Jeff is in Glen Burnie, which would also be a trek.

I was going to have Damian do my cam install this spring, however he was just moving into his shop, and the logistics just didn't work out. I've had work done by him before, and have been very happy with the results.

My $0.02,

Chris
