Side Job/Part time Mechanic for my GTO (Houston)

I don't like to find out the hard way, I would rather get a reliable mechanic or even somone who does it on the side/someone who wants to earn extra cash, that is familiar with our cars.

I'm looking at spending some money on go fast goodies, such as heads/cam/intake/headers, and more, near Tomball (NW Houston)area.

I have called around and got some silly/stupid outrageous prices, I would do the work myself but I dont' have the time.

PM me if you can do the work, or know someone who is reasonable on prices and will stand behind their work.

Probably looking at starting with a Head swap.

Paul.

PM replied, and thanks for the recommendation Dan! It's times like these that having a great reputation pays off.

I'll second the recommendation for Blackest! He tackled my brakes with ease and no time at all. He diagnosed cars driving down the street by sound alone. He knows his stuff!

Bish please. Are you done drawing the shop logo yet? No? Then get back to work! We can't start a shop without a logo!

If you're going to use my spring compressor then I should get a percentage of whatever he pays you.

Hey, Black per our conversation, I'm going to see if i can find a good set 243's, but I assume you allot more connections that I would even think of.

lmk what ideals you have come up with, my goals are 400 Rear wheel horsepower that I can grow with.
