Hey Everyone,

Based in the W-S area and recently picked up a 18 Pearl White GTR.

Wondering if there are any shops in NC or close that know GTRs? Who do you all use?

I know Cicio is in GA and VA, but checking to see if anything may be closer.

Any GTR owners on here in/close to W-S? Dont really see any running around.

Thanks!

You are probably smack dab in the middle for Cicio shops, so either is a no brainer if you are going to do anything substantial. UG in Charlotte if you just need some bolt on work done, but not sure what their lead times look like or if they will even schedule it. Any competent shop can go fbo, but tube will be 90% of your drivability. These things can clunk and buck like you are learning how to drive a stick.

Yep. Just bought all my FBO parts from Cicio and they will be remote tuning it as well. Ill be installing everything myself outside of the downpipes. Not sure I want to tackle that monster...

Im about 4-5hrs either way to their shops. As you said major work will for sure bring it to them. Downpipes alone thats a little far.

Didnt realize UG would do anything outside of the Lambos, R8, etc..

Welcome rsteb!  Winston Salem area also!  MC is close as well.  You may see me around in a car that looks like yours, but it is up for sale at the moment.  Looking forward to your build!

Welcome. Im in Chapel Hill NC. I love NC but not much in the way of tuner shops close by. There are a few small shops, but none that specialize in GT-Rs.

I had a Nissan GT-R tech install upgraded injectors at the dealership. He let me flash car in the shop and he rode shotgun for the test drive. Basic bolt on stuff Im fine doing myself. I didnt bother with DP as I wanted car to be able to pass emissions and its fast enough without. I worked with a remote tuner and pulled logs getting on on-ramps.

If I go E85, Ill take it to phantasm in Raleigh to make sure torque is safe as they have an AWD dyno. If I go big, Id go to one of Cicios shops.

If you find a good local shop / mechanic let us know.
