Red face Tuning Shop Recommendations in CT or MA

I've done my first round of bolt-on minor upgrades for this year, and she's not running well and I badly need to get her in an expert tuners hands for the final tweaking. Can I get some recommendations for the best shops in CT/RI or MA? I've head about Dez, EFI (although it looks like they've stopped working on older fox bodies) and Janetti Racing in Waterbury, CT. Thanks for your input!

You should not need any tuning to get a bolt on fox body running right. Something else is wrong, not the computer's tune.

Could be, but I'm at my limits of knowledge so I'm not going to mess with it any further. It ran fine before I added the cold air intake, 75mm throttle body and spacer, MSD racing distributor, Accel HP Coil, and the chip. And I also can't get the throttle cable response right, it's a little sluggish, esp on release, so if I have to pay to get it right at this point I would rather do that. It could be something very easy and I know that, but it's in such good snap that I don't want to make a regrettable mistake trying something myself. Nothing wrong with that right?

What chip? A chip on a stock motor is pretty much useless. If it's one of those ebay chips, pull it out and throw it in the trash.

Did you properly stab the distributor and time the motor?

75mm TB is too big for a stock setup and you're going to lose bottom end, might explain the sluggishness.

Scott, with all due respect, if you're going to simply continue to post negative remarks about what I'm not doing right that's really of no help to me and I would appreciate it if you would just leave my thread alone. I didn't buy an ebay chip, I bought a real SCT chip that was BAMA tuned for the slight mods I've made to the car.

Bama SCT 4-Bank Mustang Eliminator Chip w/ 3 Free Custom Tunes 6600 (87-93 5.0L) - Free Shipping 38000||38023||6600

Perhaps the 75mm body is too big, and if so I can go down to the 70mm, and a good mechanic is going to tell me that once he sees what I have and I can take it from there, but it would be nice if we were all being helpful on this sight instead of bashing one another don't you think?

There is nothing there bashing at all just advice and troubleshooting. Fact is that the car ran fine before you did all that stuff so SOMETHING you did is amiss. But instead of going back over everything just yell at the guy trying to help. Next time I won't bother.

Sounds like he's just trying to help. Scotty seems to have more knowledge about these cars than most of the users on here. But yeah a tune shouldn't be needed for bolt ons unless you consider boosting a bolt on which technically it is but no one considers it one. And you should boost imo with the larger size throttle body you have then tune. Wish I could help more, Sorry.
