Dear All,

I need your help finding a reputable Dyno Tech in the Chicagoland area who has had experience tuning a Saleen supercharger...

Yes, I know that in California these guys are located on almost every block, but here in the Midwest, we have a true shortage of good techs...

I value your comments...

Thanks for your input...

Dave

Not sure on thier saleen experience, but they are reputable.

Street Stuff in Addison is reputable.

There is a shop in Schaumburg that has a 1020 rwhp '95 twin turbo cobra that was just featured in a mag. Do a search in Schaumburg, if I remember the name I will post it. They are big into f-bodies, but are well versed on the stang as well.

Great idea, I plan on taking mine to Route 66. They have a Tuesday track times to help you dial in your setup. I plan on installing a KB setup next year, I want to put some miles on her before I say goodbye to the warranty. This year I plan on doing the exhaust and having the gears done for me.

Dear DaWarrior,

I don't know any shop that does everything under one roof...

I took my car to a great paint/body shop for painting of the mirrors and front spoiler...

And a muffler shop for the exhaust and sping/adjustable panhard setup...

You may have to split your job between two or three shops because each has their own expertise in a special area of mechanics...

Good Luck, Dave

Hey Jim (botlefedpony),

I stopped in the shop and talked to one of your coworkers about painting the hood and spoiler. He took a few pics.. i felt bad the car was dirty but too cold lately to wash lol Had it cleaned up shortly after.

He said you were in a meeting so left him my cell number and the pics I printed (of poco's mustang) with what I wanted done.

*note I actually stopped in the Schererville location, not alsip but I doubt there are 2 Jims with nice Mustangs

Thanks
