Default dyno shop in Texas?

Does anybody know of a reputable dyno shop in Texas that is familiar w/ megasquirt, and preferably miatas?

Edit: Dallas is best... but something around San Antonio or Houston would be ok.

Texas is kind of a big state. you may need to narrow that down some more.

Hustler? Is that a person or a dyno? I need a dyno. Thanks though

Dallas is ideal, but shops in San Antonio or Houston would be ok too.

Hustler is a **** that tunes shizzle; look him up under that screen name, or alternatively, 'the pimp that shall not be named'.

LOL your on miata turbo and you don't know who hustler is... wow you must no read much. he can tune Street tune and dyno tune your MS. you said you wanted a shop so i figured you need someone to tune it for you. getting dyno time is easy, knowing what to do with the dyno and ECU is the hard part.

I figured you were talking about the guy Hustler, but I didn't know he works at a dyno shop. Do ya know what the name of the shop is or got a phone #? I guess I can just PM him on here....

"Hustler" does not work at a dyno. He is in the FBI.

Just PM him, he doesn't work at a shop, he just knows MS. you can buy dyno time.
step 1: pay for dyno time
step 2: pay for hustlers time
step 3: ????
step 4: car is tuned.

p.s. you need a eddy dyno to tune a car.

I'm sitting in the "sunport" in Albuquerque. I can tune MS but don't have access to a dyno. Import Car Center will rent the dyno for $100 per hour and "powercurve" in Austin is looking for a new location. We could also try Exatorq in Garland; the guy is cool and will let us do our thing. I don't really tune cars professionally, but I've done a few and they've always worked-out fine. I'm really tired right now so I don't really want to tune cars all weekend since I already promised Jeff some road-tuning action.

If you want, I'll teach you how to tune it on the dyno, check your road tune, and give you free advice if you come by my house. You will not find an "MS-friendly" dyno in town. I looked all over then detarmined that I have to learn it myself because no one who owns a dyno can seem to resist demanding that you buy MoTec. Let me know what you want to do.

Thanks to one of the DFW locals, I should be turbo charged by the end of the month, and might need some additional tuning advice if your in town. So is Piraat really that special, it looks like you might have to order the stuff? And nope I don't drink so I have no clue what it is.

they have Piraat at "Mr. G's in Plano and they have 750's of it at Central Market. Yes, it is that good. The only substitute is Delerium Tremens.
