Need a Boston mechanic

I need a reliable Boston area mechanic. This car is seriously starting to get me frustrated and I'm having a hard time finding a mechanic that knows rx7's that'll pick up the phone/return a message.

I know a guy in Stamford, CT who might be willing, he used to be the tuner/fabricator and mechanic at Speed1. He's not cheap though and has a small waiting list... What do you need done?

Well, like I said-need someone that'll pick up the phone/return a message.

Did you get ahold of Brian? (keep in mind, DGRR just happened, so you may have a lag time from shops/people getting stuff buttoned up in prep for the event).

Not yet. I'm weighing my options considering the tow down to Stamford will cost a good amount of $$$'s.

Gotcha... Yeah, are you renting a trailer and pulling it yourself, or hiring a tow company?

Well, renting a trailer and truck w/b cheaper but still at least $300-$400, so I'm trying to at least get it running up here first. If no go, then I'll have to take the hit.

What stinks is that I know it's something simple-a tuning issue, I just haven't been able to dial it in yet.

Lui owns that shop, but it's not his fulltime job - hence not answering the phone. He is, however, super helpful. His day job is at Kaizen.

Granite State Dyno has lots of tuning experience as well as rotaries.
