    Need a tune in the midwest

    So a few weeks back I picked up a supercharged 04 corvette, It was tuned back in 04 and I think it could be better, I just dont know of any shops in my area. I live in Iowa and am looking for a good shop to give me a dyno tune.. I know of a couple in Illinois, speed inc. and a friend told me about finish line performance also in Illinois. Anybody done business with them or know of any other shops somewhat close to me?

    They look legit, but I would want to hear personally how they are.

    There is Dynotune in Watertown, SD and an outfit in Omaha that has a good reputation that I have to look up the name. I dont know any in Iowa though.

    It does have a tune from the previous set-up. I dont drive it other than moving it around.

    joejenkinsglass - I may have asked you this before (sorry) but that is a very familiar looking car. You don't have to answer if you don't want to, and to keep it somewhat vague, do the initials RR have any place in it's history?

    No reason at all behind my asking except for curiosity.

    My best friend (he lives and dies for cars) swears by Speed Inc. I have not had a personal experience with them though other than meeting one of their worker's at the drag strip. He was running their S/C 2010 black SS. Real nice guy.

    Yeah I'm the sucker that bought it off e-bay ( actually my wife did for me ). It now has a 408, front mount 88mm, and s-60. I would like to get better tuning software though, all I have is ls1 edit.

    There are a couple places here in Madison, WI that can tune LS1s. They are knowledgeable performance guys, but I wouldn't say they are LS1 experts. You want names or are you are you gonna use Speed Inc.?

    I'm not sure who I will use yet. One thing that I am concerned with is waiting till the winter grade gas is gone for the season. Maybe it wont make a difference, but I would rather not take any chances.
