    Does anyone have any experience with them? Looking at having some work done to my car and want to know what good or bad things people have to say about them. Thanks.

    I'm interested in hearing reviews as well.

    I know this is a VERY late reply, but oh well. They did a fair bit of work for me on my Cobra. Although i think they did a good job, i did feel like i could have got better attention to detail on some areas. The shop is clean and the staff is mostly very nice and knowledgeable. They have a higher turnaround on staff from what I've seen. Again, i would not say it was a bad experience but I will be trying somewhere else next time. Just to see if my expectations are unrealistic.

    Carolina Dyno in Wilmington is a more Ford oriented shop, but I've never dealt with them.

    It's more of a drive, but I prefer Pro-Dyno.

    Carolina Dyno is where Randy Haywood tunes/works. As I'm sure you're aware, he was quite a mod-motor guru 15 years ago. Anyway, I have never been to Carolina dyno, but I did get work done (engine) when he was at True Blue Performance. Later in life, he took the time to walk me through the SCT PRP software when I was learning and taught me a ton. There might be better tuners out there, but Randy is no slouch.

    Agreed. I worked with Randy when he was at National Speed. He went from there to Carolina Dyno. No complaints with him. But also no experience with Carolina Dyno.

    I’m only 56 miles from Wilmington, but I go to Fastlane Motorsports in Benson, NC. They are farther 105 miles but only specialize in Fords. Have went there twice and they do flawless work.
