SGP all the way. Mark knows what he is doing behind the tuning as well as all the work that they can do and offer.
LightSpeed is ok, I'm just going through ghetto rigging that was done. As for tuning I would go to Mark.

Seen much better work come from them then any where else.

And I must agree SpeedFetish on the prices is awesome!!

Speaking as both a previous customer and someone who works for SGP, even though the price point is higher than a lot of other shops, a lot of extra necessary work and parts go unbilled. It's not a gaurantee that you'll get free shit, it's just that Mark refuses to nickel and dime a customer.

If you want dirt cheap parts, there's always the Internet.

You might get a discount if you slap Mark in the ass and grab a handful of man-meat

I'm not sure where Speed Fetish is, but SGP is on Beltway 8 North and Veterans Memorial. Right now, we've got a couple member's cars up there ;)

And why the hell would anyone go to Silviawerks?

dam this thing really got out of hand If I would of known I wouldn't have said anything. Well I found SilviaWerks in a car show and got there card I didn't know anything about that until about a week ago but I thaught it was the other guy that used to work there. Well there are the ones who are doing the job I didn't know. But I wont judge him cause I dont know the datails of it but I just hope he does a good job on my car.

Hello. I am new to the 240 community. What is wrong with Silviawerks. I haven't been there but was planning on getting them to do my SR20 swap. What should I know about this place. Who in the Houston area does good SR20 swaps. Thanks for all of your help.

Welcome, June. Follow the links in this thread to get more information on Silviawerks, you might even find the News2Houston article.

The only place I have good experience with is SGP Racing. I've heard some good things about other shops like Speed Fetish, but input on any other shop you're gonna have to PM me, I promise to be brutally honest.

For a city the size of Houston, it lacks good and numerous sport compact performance/repair shops. Most cater to GM, Ford and Chysler. Nothing like southern California or even Florida for that matter. It is a real a shame when only one shop can do most of what a person want including tuning on a dyno. Then that one shop is very expensive to boot.

Others are trying!
