Question Northwestern speed shops

I'm looking for someone who can do a good tune on my 2010 SS/RS Automatic. Seems you have to go to the midwest, east, or California to get someone that has the equipment and the talent to do it. Can anyone help with my dilema???? Thanks in advance

From what I've found/seen, we have;

503 Motoring-5703 SW Arctic Drive, Beaverton, OR. Don't know much about them accept whats on the website. Looks overpriced or just out of my price range

Modern Classics Auto- 5717 SW Jean Rd, Lake Oswego, Oregon. this is the only shop Ive been to, Steve is a great guy, and can tune the he!! out of LS engines.

Tom's Performance Machine- 6707 NE 117th Ave, Vancouver, WA. Ive called and talked to the guys there, well known by the NHRA crowd and good rep.

Wong's Performance Engineering- 9305 NE Highway 99, Vancouver, WA

Ellis- Monroe, WA. mentioned above, but Ive never came across it.

CarbConn-13611 NE 126th Pl. Kirkland, WA First time hearing of it.

I also came across a couple of places in Tacoma, but I can't remember the names. One was a huge place on South Tacoma Way, Seemed to specialize in restoration...and they were expensive. The other was on 112th and Golden Given Rd, a really good shop from what I remember (no dyno)

You could also try Fast Specialties in Vancouver. They do HP Tuners, Diablo and SCT. In house dyno. They do a lot of open track guys as well as street guys. They are also listed as a sponsor of the show on the web site. Take care of your sponsors....

Check with Dan at Clear Image Automotive in Kent. Vince tuned my 2010 Camaro after upgrading my exhaust. He also sent me a tune for my kids LT1 96 camaro and what improvement that was too. Vince owns Trifecta tuning. I hope this helps too.

There's a sweet new shop just west of Portland. It has a 4wd dyno, lifts, fabricating, rapid prototyping machine, a show room always with a cool car or motorcycles. It is super duper clean. Going there reminds me of Fast and Furious. Very cool.
