    Connecticut shops specializing in F-bodies/LS1?

    Does anyone know of any shops that specialize in our cars? Preferably with a Dyno.

    If there aren't any, can any recommend somewhere with a dyno?

    I'm in Newington, a few miles outside Hartford, so pretty much anywhere is equal distance.

    What are the names of the places? Manchester and Wallingford are only about a 20 minute drive.

    Manchester is J and M Corvettes, and the one in Wallingford is East Side Performance. I know the guys at J and M allright, almost bought a car from them, East Side I just drove by when I was a traveling insurance salesman. Had to stop and look at all the f-bods in their lot.

    I personally wouldn't have anything done to / with my car at J&M, I've hear too many horror stories involving J&M.

    I have heard good things about East Side Performance

    East side has always seemed to have a good rep. I got my car dynoed there shortly after I got it in 02. They are a sponsor on Tech also. Also you should check out CTFBA.com contact The Chef.

    Poppyn your all over this site. All my work has been done at J&M and have very good things to say about their work and will continue to get all my future mods there. They got a dynojet there and its about $100 for 3 or 4 pulls. I actually purchased my SS from them.

    Have you ever gone down there and actually talked to them about these supposed horror stories? I have talked to those guys at length about these cars, and again, I did almost buy a car they had modded there that the owner was using as a dd while trying to sell, and that was an 11 sec a4. Most times a shop would'nt stick around as long as those guys have if they did as much wrong as the supposed horror stories would suggest. I have heard stories about most shops, including the one I have my car worked on at, but there was a reason for said horror story. Sometimes you should either dig a little deeper, or go straight to the source before forming an opinion. Also, did any of these horrible things happen to friends of yours, or friends of your friends?

    Not to hijack this thread, but does anyone know of a shop a little (or a lot) further north east.

    Not really, but just do a google search for LS1 specialty shops in your area, and Im sure a few will pop up.
