Reputable performance shop in Illinois

I was wondering if any of you knew of a performance shop in Illinois. I haven't heard of any around me other than Kurgan mortorsports.

Thanks for the help.

What are you looking to do? Get a tune or install parts?

Talk to Bob Kurgan. He tuned my car and did a really nice job. He can get you good pricing on Vortech/Paxton kits and also can recommend a place to install it.

I'm in Lake County Illinois also. I still drive to Peirceton Indiana to let Brent White dyno tune my car. My A/F stays right at 11.5-11.6 throughout the RPM range. He is a very good tuner.

Be sure to let us know where you go.

Anyone have experience with Massive Speed in Spring Grove? That place is real close to me but so far I've not done anything to my car I can't handle on my own (CAI, tune, pullies, etc...) and that I couldn't order from Brenspeed or the like. I might have to stop in there some time to check them out.

I am curious as to how much power your car put down to the tires.

I've heard nothing but good things about Brenspeed. I was thinking of taking my car there at one time.

I have been talking to Randy at Sutton. He's being very helpful

Where do you live in Lake County?

I also thought about making the commute out to Pierceton to see good ol' Brenspeed.

Maybe we should plan a road trip---in the spring. I wanted to maybe add a methanol injection kit to my normally aspirated engine and have Brent dyno tune it for me.
