Any good tuners in the Chicago land area?

I'm in NW Indiana..really close to Chicago. I need a good tuner and someone that has experience with working on 370s because I also need my new exhaust installed.

What kind of tuning? If it's UpRev then there are only two places I know about. From UpRev's website:

Check out ProjectX. New shop in Schaumburg I believe. They are good dudes and can do both the tune and exhaust install.

Agree with above... Call Project X Customs, ask for Eli (224)653-8851.
They installed my supercharger and tune, did a great job.

Hello to all. It's been years since I've been on here. Does anyone in the Chicago area know if Project X Customs is still in business? I tried calling there and wasn't able to leave a message. If they are closed, does anyone know of a shop in the Chicago region that regularly works on 370z's? I appreciate any help.
