Question Rhode Island area mechanic? (Not necessarily a tuner)

So, we all know Wicked is awesome...

but driving 100 miles for smaller stuff is killing me!

Does anyone know of a good mechanic in the RI (Providence) area, preferably one who would install provided parts?

I'm looking for things like wheel bearing replacement, PS Pump swaps, etc.

Thanks and stay warm!

Try Dynotech tuning in Seekonk Ma. Its just over the RI boarder. Its in an industrial park by the speedway. Matt from W.I. still tunes there and their work looks to be good quality.

That's two for Craig Litchfield, Tiverton, near Providence. Fantastic mechanic, he is who I call when I run into a problem and he knows the answers right off the top of his head.

Plus he has in in house machine shop/machinist, what more could you want?

Also, unbeknownced (sp?) to him, I've driven several of his cars, phenomenal. Oil pressure right on...boost set perfect (not over/under), just quality work.

If he was "if-fy" I would just say it, but I've yet to see anything leave his shop that is not done as if it was his own car.

I'm telling you, if WI is too far, and Craig is closer, you won't be disappointed.

The Subaru shop all day.

Stand up guys that know what there doing.

Craig is a long time friend and I have seen him work on the majority of his cars and customer cars. He never skimps on parts or work. Nothing leaves the shop until its complete and done the correct way.

Does Craig have Wrb wrx/sti? Sounds like a guy I skated with few years ago. Think he had a s2k before the Subaru....
