Mod friendly shops in Seattle area?

Like the title states where are some shops that will work on our car and that can install mods. I always get hassled and lectured when they see anything aftermarket on my car.

What mods are you looking to do? I've said this once in the past, it's more likely that you'd get names of shops to avoid.

Intake and exhaust section 1 and 2. I think I was also suppose to go with Minh to see you to scan my code for my smg. Tired to install the intake myself and could not get the heat shield to fit right and do not want to brake anything

I'd like to know as well, only places I know are broadstroke in Snohomish and horsepower freaks in Portland if there's some more local please enlighten me.

You might look into Group 2 Motorsports (near Fishermen's Terminal in Seattle, between Magnolia and Ballard)... I also saw another race-oriented German shop in that area.

I probably would not have strayed from BroadStroke, but they are just too remote for me in Seattle.

Ok cool ill check them out thanks. I usually do my shopping at ecs tuning mod bargains or other online shops, so that's good to know there's some local places to go.

There are a lot of good Indy shops like strickley, eastside Bavarian, aurburn foreign cars, and Rolf auto. I use to take my old e36 to Rolf and liked it but always got crap for modding my car
