Default How far do you drive for service, tuning, parts etc??

Interested in how far everyone drives for performance work, service, tuning etc etc. If you.can add your location and where you have to drive to for a reputable shop and what type of work you're getting done would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Well, it's hard to find a shop I can trust to do anything to my SVX, TiC is about 2 hours away from me.

Psh I got you beat. I used to go to a shop in Houston, but I'm not allowed there anymore. So now I go to a friends shop in the DFW area, like 3 and a half hours away. To tell you the truth I trust my friends shop way more, but its so damn far!

If you really want to get into this, I had to pay an svx expert in wisconsin to travel to FL to help me out when mine broke down.

EFI Logics is in Bethel, CT. I'm currently an hour and 45 minutes away, but I'd say if I could make a weekend trip out of going there, it would still be worth bringing my car there.

SAME THING! I live near philly and use to drive to PT for all my maintenance and tuning. One of the best shops in the area (if not the best). It was a good 45 minutes each way but so worth it.

I'm about 3 miles from precision tuning, they used to be literally 3 blocks away before they moved.
