Need a new tuner in CA

I'm looking for a new tuner in CA. My current tuner will not tune for nitrous on the plugs I want to use. I want to run the NGK BR7EF while he wants me to run the iridium TR8ix. I've heard good things about Starkweather, I've talked to Josh and he is a good guy, but I don't get along with his tuner so that won't work. I've heard good things from Jim at CalSpeed, and also GP Tuning. If anybody can recommend someone else please let me know.

They're worth the drive.
I drive 6 hours round trip, 300 miles round trip, to their shop.
Wouldn't trust anyone else to touch my car.

if you can get ahold of them / get them to respond. might just be my luck, but i've tried before their move (a little over a year ago) and then just recently 'several' times over the last few months.

since they don't respond i reached out to addiction motorsports in LA.

don't consider this a review of either, i've only heard good things from both, haven't personally had work done 'yet'.

Jim from CalSpeed is a good dude. He has tons of experience and is always just a phone call away.

Eddie At addiction is also a good guy. Does great work with the Stangs. Ryne is going to be better at maro's in my opinion.

Ryne or Mike, neither ever respond to me. i've tried more than enough times to get a quote.

i got a quote back in July 2014, i set up an appt for august 20th, 8/20 came and they said they didn't have me on the books - i tried to reschedule, they never respond to me. tried a few months ago also, got a response then i asked for quote and no response again.

Ryne was my 1st pick because i hear nothing but great stuff about his tunes, but can't take my car there if they wont respond back to me.

my experience shouldn't deter anyone else from trying. i'm not trying to discourage anyone from going to CMS or anything like that.

take it from another tuner, he is good. Not taking anything away from the said company, But nascar and street cars are two vastly different things, and both require a different skill set. FWIW

sorry you had issues. Albeit you're not trying to discourage anyone from trying to be our customer, but that is exactly what you're doing. If you don't want to discourage anyone, why post at all ....

Absolutely! He has the skill set for both from what I heard. Too bad their aren't many options here in NorCal.

As for Rick u may think so and not taking anything away from him, but personally I have heard more bad then good from the members up here. I opted to take my car down to SoCal for tuning.
