Not north of Boston, but worth the trip to http://www.jannettyracing.com/ in CT.

Can't go wrong with Jannetty or Slowhawk. Slowhawk is closer for Eastern MA folks, about a half hour south of Boston.

kind of a big stab at someone there... if you have a personal grudge keep it personal or if you have another shop you support please let us know but its kinda low to personally attack someone like that but thats just my opinion....

I would agree with you. As you can tell myself and Keiver do not get along.Throwing out 1 line jabs is not the best thing.

Slowhawk is Well respected among the tuning community, I have had the Pleasure of discussing tuning Strategy and Proceedures with him, So I know he knows what he is doing.

A post like this can really hurt someones Lively hood, even if it is just posted over a disagreement between you 2.

What ever your differences are they should be handled between the 2 of you Privately, this is not the Place to Vent Your Differences.

Sincerely, Ted

Iv talked to slowhawk a few times at the many shows and meets we go to. He is always respectful to others needs. Not for nothing but he's also one of are nec5 budys. I think you just need to talk to him about you problem.

if it wasnt for jannetty or slow...half of the modded camaros weve grown to know and love would be mod-less....

those 2 companies are legends in our group...and even outside new england as said by our Tampa friend....

sure everyone has preference...but i agree...personal vendettas should be left off the forum...where people go to be excellent to each other...and gain information and knowledge...

wanna fight?...call big tyme wrestling...im sure theyd die to have your silly ass in with the other silly asses....but dont do it here dude...not cool

Kaisen Tuning... Not just for GT-Rs!!

Contact Scott at Kaisen Tuning in Acton,ma... They are a GT-R and tuner car specialist but they have an HP Tuners expert, Mike, that owns a 2010 Camaro himself.
They tuned my ZL575 on the Dyno and we gained about 25hp over the already SLP tuned ECU!!
Good bunch of guys!

Thank you for the kind words Steve, I'm glad I got to tune your car...the way it ran on the dyno on the first pull before we tuned it actually kinda scared me, so I was happy to see we were able to not only make more power, but also make it just run better.

How has it been driving since we tuned it? As you know I just put a set of Kooks on my car...I need to get it back on the rollers ASAP...hopefully I can beat 400 to the wheels in my daily driver!!!...of course I already want a new cam lol.

See you wendesday or thursday for the G8, whichever works best for you.

That's really uncalled for. I've never actually met Don, but he's answered questions I've had on a few different forums over the years, and I've never heard anybody who has met him have anything negative to say about him at all.
