Default Tuners Bay Area

Ok so I am ready to start ordering parts and scheduling a tune. I am having a heck of a time finding any reliable shops. So Far I have tried Zcar Garage. Sounded like Rob wasn't not really interested. Also they won't put on parts if they are ordered by me. I must buy the parts from him. Emailed him what I want and have yet to hear back. DNR doesn't have the maps for Nissan's and Full Function Tech is still supposed to get back to me. Has anyone had any luck with other shops in the Bay Area? Sounds like the easiest thing to do is order everything myself and order a Osiris E-Tune?

What are you putting on? I see a lot of people in the forced induction site using Seb (not sure of the shop) for tunes. They send him logs and he sends back mods to the tune. Don't know what it costs though but I bet it would be better than an e-tune from someone not specializing in Zs. Seems to be a consensus that he does really good work.

Seb is with Specialty Z. He does great work. Very responsive even for remote tuning. OP might be drive down to LA and get tuned in person if he's willing to make the trip.

Thanks guys. Not going the boost route. Just installing a CBE, sway bar kit and want the tune to get rid of the throttle lag. Nothing major. Seems like the shops up here don't have the time for a 3k parts order and tune. I guess they have money growing from trees up here. A trip down south may be in order.
