Need a good tuning shop in Arizona

Hey, I have a 1976 Ford F-150 with a 360 CID engine.

The engine is a freshly rebuilt longblock I bought and installed. I also installed a Mallory Hyfire 6A ignition, MSD 8mm plug wires, Mallory Promaster 29440 coil, new alternator and battery, new plugs, pretty much everything new. The carb is fairly new too, just rebuilt.

I pretty much just need a good place to tune it up for best possible performance with these parts. I want:

Timing tuned to optimal setting
Distributor re-curved
Possibly vacuum timing advance adjusted with an adjustable vacuum canister if necessary
Caburetor adjusted and re-jetted if necessary for best mixture
Idle speed and mixture adjusted

Does anyone know a really GOOD shop that can do all this and do it right? I have been burned in the past, had a shop try to tune my truck and it ended up worse than before! I want a shop that knows what they are doing, maybe one that will use a dyno to tune it, if necessary.

Any ideas? I'm in Mesa, Arizona but I can take it in the surrounding Phoenix / metro area, if the shop is good enough to be worth the drive

That's interesting I didn't know they did mechanical work or tuning, is this the Mesa location or a different one? I have only seen a storefront in Mesa.

I have only been to the store on Indian school, several years ago, back then they had a shop, but I just looked in the yellow pages and didn't see an add for the phoenix store. I will try to drive by in the next few days and see if they are still there.
