Best tuning shop near Austin?

Need a tune after installing LG Long Tubes, Full Exhaust, X pipe, high flow cats, and CAI. Any good recommended shops near Austin?

Damn, that is sad that Austin really has nothing in the muscle car performance industry. I need to go open one

Not a bad idea, though I'll still go to Corey, he has managed my entire project...
Wont go anywhere else except for BlackJack, they do my alignment stuff for high speed runs...

You are actually quite lucky to have something reasonably close.

Corey is good and I usually would recommend you go to Hensersons but if you are looking to stay in Austin there's a new shop called Aikmans Performance Tuning and Repair.

I think Robert meant he used Blackjack for other stuff like alignments. When I talked to Glenn the other day, I swear he told he sends people to Corey for tunes but I could be wrong.

True... and Blackjack has some very high end alignment equipment.

Been over at Reckart / Aikman the last few days getting my car tuned...
Brian seems to be a good guy, Jerry and Stacey are also real cool... seem to be easy going good people
Brian tuned my car today...

Here are few images from the past few days...









Final numbers
422HP
419TQ

The graph below shows the "stock", then pre-tune "headers/exhaust", then post tune headers/exhaust.
I requested a "safe tune"... this is my daily driver

You might starve if you do that. Austin is VERY VW, subaru, Fiat and hybrid heavy.
