Performance Shop in the RGV????

Does anyone know of any good performance shops in the RGV for a possilbe installation of headers and tuning? I already got my BORLA ATAK installed at MIDAS. Didn't know anywhere else to take it.

I don't trust our local tuners here in the RGV so I went with an SCT tuner with a Jannetty tune. Many people recommend Xcessive motorsports in Edinburg which is a Dyno tuner unlike the rest of the tuners down here. Another Dyno tuner would be Senoli in Palm View but he's usually busy with his full time job. Headers I installed mine myself but any shop should be able to get it done with no problem.

no, he just reprograms the ECM. But he does a great job!

Best bet is to go out of the valley! I did and my car is a beast ! I went to Houston and had all my work done. In the bigger city's they know what they are doing. They do more cars in a week than these little valley shops do in a year! And you don't have to worry about your car ending up in Mexico or a government entity raiding the place that's working on your car and never seeing it again!

Are you still looking for a shop to install your headers and get you a tune? If you dont mind the drive I got headers in stock and can install them for you, we can also provide you with a tune at the same time

I am from McAllen and know that there is not much down there as far as tuning and performance installation. I also make many trips down there to see family and friends and all of them tell me they can not find anyone to help them with things they need regarding performance work.

Let me know if I can help you in any way.

Thanks everybody. I'm looking to make a road trip to SA one day so maybe I'll find something out there. If not, Houston is not that far away...if the price is right. lol
