Default Tuner Shop Close to Houston?

I have a 2018 STI, and on a recent road trip started getting some WACKY numbers for AF and also some concerning presence of knock while running 91 octane fuel.

After a bit of back and forth emailing with Cobb and sending them datalogs, I'm told that there is a slight chance that I have a minor post MAF leak.

So to cut to the chase, does anybody know of an independent shop in Houston that can do a smoke test and is particularly well versed at working with our cars? I'd prefer to avoid dealership service for this just to skip all the "what mods do you have and how that would affect your warranty" questions.

Thanks!

edit:
I'm getting in touch with Kozmic to get some info, just wondering if there are any other tuner shops in Houston.

Still there!
But my fault
I have a motorized exhaust Cutout
On 23rd Oz (shop foreman) called me
I couldn’t call back bc of work volume until Friday
The cutout’s butterfly valve was leaking
Tuner was getting screwed up A/F readings
So I dropped off a cap to place on the cutout and a gasket on Tuesday
Tuner out of town rest of this week
Hell, I have been waiting for 9 months(bc of cam oil seal issues from builder that I had to solve myself) so another week isn’t going to kill me.

Actually glad they communicated the issue than trying to push the car out and give it back to me with a known issue

Def keep u posted

After car being down for 9 months
After car being worked on by myself for 4months
I have come the conclusion
That I really have missed hitting 140MPH

I couldn’t help it driving home....sorry
A 97 Volvo (Loadie) passed me(and others) on beltway8 well over 100
Probably saw my gold rims......
I kept my cool for sometime........then thought, this is what all the blood/sweat/scraped knuckles/curse words are about
Killed It with down shift to 5th
After one hump, caught up with him....didn’t ride his ass or anything
But he saw me
I backed down.....got into slow lane and cruised rest of way home.

Motor very happy
