    Best Import Garage

    I am having a hard time finding a garage to bring my honda to.

    I mainly do all of my own work but can't figure this one out.

    For my jeep the only guy I trust is Jim from rockspyder but i don't have a mechanic for my car, 2002 civic sir with 2002 rsx motor same size 2.0L but different intake on it.

    The problem I have is I am having p0505 idle air control valve code, replaced the IACV still have the code. Code popped after I clean the TB out, thinking it points to a large leak then. I also have a lean condition. My short term fuel trim is showing between 20% and 40 % under load. I just rehooked up to my battery deleting my history so it will take a while for my long term percent to boost up and compensate, but there is definitely a lean condition. checked fuel pressure ( only the initial pressure when i turn the key), brought my injectors to be tested, replace my intake manifold gasket, redid my valve spacing, replaced my primary O2 and checked for intake leaks with a vacuum gage unsuccesffuly. my scan tool wont let me check the voltage from my primary o2 which is frustrating since that is basically used for the air to fuel mixture ratio.

    Most shops I call don't want to deal with it,not sure if anyone knows a good import garage with experience with this type of thing or have some good advice what to check out next.

    cheers

    I know a lot of the ricers take their car's to Richmond Hill. I think on Green lane / John St. there's quite a few performance shops.

    DMT = Dynamotorsports, Tony is the man but works really weird hours like sometimes 11pm to 4am...lol
    Teknotik = One of the most well known import shops.

    I have dealt with both and they are both top notch when it comes to knowledge and service. Tony is a legend in the tuning industry well known for building and owning the highest HP street driven Supra to his 800+ whp daily driven 96 Camry...lol
