I hope I don't wind up sounding to much like a "grumpy old man" doing a bunch of griping about "kids these days".
However, I do have a bad back and there are a lot of things I hire people to do that I would have done myself were it not for
an injury some years back.

I am looking to do some high performance mods both to my 1988 Fiero GT and my 2005 Grand Prix GXP.
Specifically, what I am looking for is if anyone knows of a good automotive shop that is not afraid to try a few things outside of the factory manual...
The auto shop I currently use can do up to identical engines, but would not open up an engine to replace 1 rocker arm.

The transmission shop here that is supposed to have the highest technical prowess was afraid of swapping out a 4t65e-hd with a high performance one from Triple Edge.

A muffler shop was afraid of installing headers on my GXP...


I am hoping maybe a forum member here knows of a shop in OKC with an actual "mechanic" employed there.... otherwise I have a lot more phone searching to do.

PM sent... You probably won't see it until tomorrow though, as it is pretty late tonight.

For some reason the system will not let me communicate further with predmeister. I felt like the info he gave me was leading to a good person to do the work I want done. I still need contact info, or a shops name for that to work.
There was not any bad communication there, so I have no idea what the deal is...…….

Ok, I had Carter Engine Repalcement rebuild my 3800SC and they had no problems making suggestions and putting in power adders. His name is Bert Carter. I took my short block to Carter and he did a fine job. I did NOT have him replace the engine.

Goody

The beauty of a solution lies in its simplicity

Great info! That gives me one option I can check into!

I appreciate the effort to help, but there is not enough information there for me to contact them or to find the meetings.... I definitely want to check into both.

I was late today calling Carters Engine Replacement, but that looks like a solid lead judging from their website!

There is a variety of work I am going to need that might be outside the norm for an Engine Replacement Shop though so mow that I am aware that "Brew and Nick" is also the name of the shop I can check into that.
