Need a western Canadian Tuner

I live in Saskatoon Sasketchewan Canada. I have a 07 GT/CS that is going to be getting a supercharger after I take off my STS Turbo. My problem is finding someone to tune my car once I put the supercharger on, I think I am putting on a E-Force with a 3.5" pulley. I am not letting the dude who tuned my car for the last 2yrs near my new set up. I don't trust his tuning "skills" anymore, he has been involved in too many cars that end up needing an engine shortly after installation of Power Adders, mostly STS Turbo cars mine being 1 of them and my car had 13000km (8000miles), the turbo was on for less than 5000km (8psi) before it went up in smoke at the drag strip last fall. I need to find someone in Saskatchewan or Alberta that is competent enough to tune my car. My car now has a 301ci forged stroker, 42lb inj, 2 gt40 fuel pumps, stock top end. I also have a Snow Performance stage3 water/meth kit installed but my installer/tuner plumbed it into my washer tank without asking me now it won't pass tech at our Drag Strip so I may have it removed. My 2-step is also unhooked, my cats somehow melted when they set it up because I fired the car up this spring after all the work was done by him (forged stroker, clutch/al.f/w, meth kit, fuel system, 2 step) and ran it once in my garage when it filled the turbo with cat material ruining my turbine wheel and housing. I have smaller used turbo on it now but he spent most of the summer trying to get the car running properly, cold start issues, light throttle response that got better when I insisted he take out his recommended 80lb injectors and put my 42lb ones back in. It runs okay now but smokes and has been using oil since the used turbo install. Sorry for such a long write up but I really need some help finding someone I can trust after all this crap I have been through this summer. We have 3-4 Performance shops in our city and only 1 has dyno.


07 GT/CS, needs some work

In Calgary there is the Mustang Shop and Tecmotion. I don't have personal experience with them as I just have a custom tune, but have heard of guys who had dyno tunes done.

I talked to Matt at the Mustang Shop in Calgary yesterday. He was very helpful and answered all my questions. Made me feel confident in his abilities as well. Seems to know these cars and I think I will have to make a road trip to get my car tuned after I get my supercharger installed.

Let us know how it works out for you after you get it tuned. I'm thinking of getting a dyno tune. although with my mods I don't really need one.
