Default Pittsburgh noob

Hey there all.
I picked up my new project car last October and it has been keeping me busy. A 1991 that has had a lot of work done to it but needed some TLC to get it back to its former glory.
My next project is getting a new exhaust and if I can get a dyno tune done as well that will be a big bonus. But it runs well for now. Any tips on where I can get the work done would be much appreciated as well.

Heres a a pic to get started.

Welcome, where are you located in Pittsburgh? What type of work do you need done?

Near Crafton. The exhaust and tune are the major things. It also has some gauges that aren't working correctly or not at all (boost, EGT, wide band). So those are mostly what I'm concentrating on.

Welcome! I lived in the 'burgh for 29 years up until May of last year. I had Moore Performance do some exhaust work on my FXT and was very satisfied with the results.

Nice, I recently just bought a house in Baldwin. I'm originally from Oakdale. I'd check out Moore Performance as previously mentioned, also Jeff (First Try Engineering) off of Cliff Mine Rd, do a lot of the jobs I don't like/have time for. He does exhaust work. Not sure about the tune, what software?

Megasquirt. Seems like no one around here handles it.

I'll be in the same boat soon as far as tuning. Can't recommend as I've never done business with either company, but have heard good things. Here and here.
