I have two places(kinda) where I live. My parents, which I visit often, are in up by Erie, PA and I have a house that I rent with some old friends where I work in Pittsburgh, PA. I am getting a Z in the spring and I was wondering if there are ANY reputable shops around either of these places. I don't mean a 15 mins drive either. I will take a shop as far as like 2 hours away possibly. So pretty much somewhere in Western PA, Eastern OH, South West NY, North West MD, and North West Virgina. By shops I am looking for two specifically.

1.) A wheel shop that will NOT scratch my rims all up. I went to three different places with my rims on my eclipse to people that "promised" at they would not be damaged in any way....every single place scratched them.

2.) I need a engine/tuner/dyno shop. I will more than likely be putting either turbonetics single turbo or APS' single turbo on the Z before I am done and I want some good place I can go to for tuning and/or work. I plan on building the internals when/if I got FI so they have to be able to, more than likely, port and polish, bore the cylinders, press pistons on rods and install. I had to drive to Staten Island with my eclipse on a flatbed just to get help on a supercharger issue with my eclipse(7.5 hour trip one way). I don't want to have to do this with the Z.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. :thumbsup:

Well I had great success w/ Johnny Mocks in Turtle Creek when Lucy was wrecked, they put my new rims on for me b4 we picked her up........but they are mainly repair only I think. THere is a place on Allegheny River Blvd a block from the intersection w/ sandy crick blvd (rt 130) called B&R Speed Supply that does supercharger installations and the like, check them out, I've not used them but I would venture to guess that they know their stuff. If you want to drive to Englishtown, NJ you could look up MRC Motorsports (DaKing, Jason MRC, ZX Rage all part of the team and are here on this site) http://www.racemrc.com/

I will check that place out. Thanks. And about how long of a trip am I looking at to NJ...6 hours?

I am starting to think me and you are the only ones around here haha. Everytime there is anything related to pittsburgh, you and me seem to be the only ones talking haha.
