THANKS

Connecticut? From what I've been seeing on The Weather Channel you shouldn't be worried about driving your beast for another month and a half, lol. I'm originally from northeast Illinois, just off of Lake Michigan, I don't miss the winters at all, just the people. Down here, you drive your goats year round!...If it gets in the 40's down here they freak out cuz they don't have any salt trucks or plows, lol, the candy asses.

Can't make a recommendation -- but I used to live in Avon. Went to New Britian every 4th of July for the fireworks. Absolutely insane. The city put on a great show -- as did everybody in the houses and streets nearby. Ah, the memories.

Im from MA myself. Go to SLPONLINE.COM they have a list of installers, and the ones that have dyno cells. i believe theres a few in ct, ma, and ri, all about 1-2 hour drive depending on your location

GOAT06, I grew up in New Britain, many years ago. I did a lot of racing on the Berlin Turnpike back in the late 60's and early 70's. Anybody still racing there? You weren't around then, were you? Anyway, now I'm living in Norwalk. I recently got my 05 Goat dyno tuned at East Side Performance in Wallingford. Ken, Sean and Alfred are great to work with and do top notch work. My goat is an A4 with K&N CAI, SLP underdrive pully, JBA shorty headers, JBA mid-pipes with high-flow cats, a 3000-rpm converter and an Ed Curtis "smog legal" cam (224/230, 0.590/.0.580, 114 LSA). On a cold day last month the car put down 402 rwhp uncorrected. Not bad for a car that will pass an emisions sniff test. There is another excellent dyno tune shop a little farther from you. Check out Mongillo Motors in New Haven. Hope this helps. Bob

Those arent bad #'s for those mods Chemist. A set of heads would really that cam do its job, or even get the stockers ported/polished, and with out comprising your emissions.
