Good Performance Shop Hookup

Hey guys just wanted to share my special spot for all my tuning and performance needs. The shop is in Arvada and does all Honda Acura OEM work as well as performance work. H22 swaps, lowering, turbo work, anything... Guy goes by the name of "T". He is a good buddy of mine that I worked with at Fisher Honda. He went and opened his own shop and has been open several years now. Tell him ryan sanchez sent you. Heres the location:

Pro-Image Auto Repair
5270 Marshall St Unit C
Arvada, CO 80002
(303) 432-3105

Place is tricky to find, hit me up if you would like help finding the place. Hope you all can save some cash by going here. I have saved a ton. Quality honda tech went solo, and we gain by avoiding dealer hikes in prices. The thing I like is he uses OEM parts which you gotta love. PM if you got any questions.

he has an hourly rate posted in the lobby, but I know for sure thats not what I get charged. I'll get back to you soon, i'm heading down to his shop as soon as my springs get here! I'll talk to him and let him know I have referred some guys off here and see what he charges. He has been trying to get me to do an h22 swap forever, but i just cant ever come up with the cash,,,,,damn college. Poor guy sold his lsvtec turbo integra for a minivan a while back! NEVER will I drive a minivan! But yeah he knows his honda acura **** real well.

Well i'll add to this thread

My buddys shop has a tech that worked on the HKS race team and has build too many 1000+hp cars to list, his name is ricki, hes from japan speaks perfect english and works at my friends shop. If you have any questions about anything he can tell you, hes like a walking computer, he taught me soo much about turbo builds that i never knew. And hes the one who will be finishing work on my car. Anywho, he is in the performance bay of A&B Auto, i believe the hourly rate is around $80. They will do most everything from engine rebuild/build, suspension, turbo work, all the way to basic oil change.


A&B Import Auto inc.
1943 East Lincoln
Fort Collins, CO 80524
970-221-4700

vince is the resceptionist, and Mark is the owner, if u talk to mark tell him Reed sent you.
