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
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
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.
I went by lopers tonight they are still on Indian school at 908 E. Indian School. they were closed when I went by but I got their number off of the door 602-264-5288
Open Mon. through Fri 8:00 to 6:00 sat 8:30 to 5:00 I can't personally vouch for their maintenance but also I have never heard anything bad about them.
