Is that Century III by chance? Just got mine there in November so haven't tried out their service dept yet, but it's nice to know what I'm in for. I do know they sold me the car with a little "dealer installed swirl" that I didn't notice until I felt it was too late to complain about it (luckily not too bad). Hoping I don't have to find somewhere else for service since CIII is so convenient. There is C Harper South on 51,but I didn't like their sales team at all... WAY too pushy. No service experience there either.

Can anybody recommend a good place to get an alignment/bushing re-timing done? I recently moved to the Robinson area and am not familiar with the local shops. I installed lowering springs and need to get these done asap.

I hate to be the newb and THAT guy, but I tried using the search function and I'm not seeing my answer.

I just relocated to Pittsburgh and I have a couple action items/questions.

1) I moved from the Southwest and we had 91 gas, so when I had my Camaro (mods in sig) tuned, it was tuned for 91. I'd like to take advantage of the 93 and squeeze a few extra ponies out. I'm reading Tom Henry is legit. Do they do dyno and street tuning in house or out source it?
2) After I installed the SC, I never had the front end aligned and the tires are worn pretty badly on the inner tread from the extra weight, so I need an alignment done too.
3) Where I lived, the state inspection was just an emmisions inspection and they plugged into the OBDII and that was it. I have headers, high flow cats and a SC, but they never looked or cared as long as there was no CEL, I passed. I'm reading here the inspections are a bit more strict/comprehensive. Am I going to have issues or have to pay out of my butt to get it to pass? Can anyone recommend a place?

Should also note that this is my toy. So the <5000mi emissions exemption might apply, right? I've owned it for 5 years and it only has 14,000mi on it.

Thanks!

Guy in homestead does vinyl wraps and vinyl installs. Professional athletes go to him, I've gone to him for Tint on my NX. Unique Auto Finishing.

I'll probably be going to him myself in a few weeks for him to wrap over a piece in the interior of my 4Runner.

Tom Henry doesn't tune anything. They have an outside guy come in and do it, and I've heard the tunes are overall junk and overly rich. Domin8 tuning up in Wexford does LS engines, also so does FJ performance south of the city.

Alignment, I'm looking for suggestions myself. I heard Fleming in Mars has a guy that does alignments for a lot of the sports cars in the area.

Your emissions depends where you live. If you're in Allegheny county, its a visual plus plugin. So you should be fine. if you're in Butler County, no emissions.

Finally, no, you're not exempt.
