Any reputable dyno tuners in the St. Louis area?

    My Cobra is getting a TVS, 60lb injectors, MAF upgrade, etc, in the next month or two. I live in the southern Illinois area and St. Louis is the closest major metropolitan area. I'm not really interested in doing a mail-order tune (data logging, loading new tunes, etc) and would prefer to make a once-and-done project of it, so I am hoping there's a reputable shop you guys can recommend that'll be able to provide a dyno tune within a couple hours of southern Illinois.

    I figure I'll either need to trailer the car to the shop or have the shop install the TVS and supporting mods, as I can't imagine the car will be driveable with the existing tune (stock injectors and MAF, 2.76-pullied Eaton).

    Any recommendations?

    Have you looked into stl mustangs? It's kind of a drive but I've heard they are good at tuning. They didn't tune my car but they did rebuild my t56 and installed my clutch. From my experience I would use them again.

    I do my own building and tuning so no personal experience with any of the shops but I hear Bob Monks at STL Mustangs is pretty reputable.

    You'll have to buy a handheld programmer anyway unless you go with a chip so whoever you go with would be able to build a base tune for you to load and be able to drive to the shop safely as long as you stay out of boost.

    I hear nothing but positive things about Bob Monks (STL Mustangs). I had mine tuned by Matt Cruise (Mustang Muscle).

    Stlmustangs is great. They're only 8 miles away from me . Everyone down this way uses them. I plan on it when my mods are done.

    sent from somewhere,while in my cobra.
