Default Good garage for Ford BOSS engines in Frisco area?

I have an MMR 2013 BOSS based engine that has never been started that I need tuned. I live in Frisco. Can anyone suggest a good garage? The car will be towed there so I would like a place within 20 miles or so that does good work at a fair price.

If sell it on Craigslist and buy an engine from someone else. If you must run the mmr piece of shit have a local shop take the engine apart check the specs and rebuild it.

They have a pretty darn good track record and an A+ rating with the BBB.

Opinions such as yours aren't exactly helpful and was not answering the question I asked.

Keeping a good rating with the BBB is as simple as paying the dues for it and is not a good reflection of how trustworthy a business is. The BBB are themselves a bunch of corrupt money grubbing politicians with ZERO morals.

Actually, it's not that simple. You are dinged for unanswered customer complaints. They do verify them too and I know that first hand.

Anyway, this is WAY off topic. The original responder gave me some good info and I have reached out to both companies.

As a person who has owned several businesses I have been on the reciving end of a BBB shakedown more times than I can count. As long as you pay for it you will always have a good rating with them. They are not trustworthy at all. Peer reviews are a better way to judge things.

The peers here have all said that HPP has a good reputation over the many years I have been here.

This. A buyer for that thing is going to check thoroughly anyway before spending that kind of money.

Thanks. I emailed them and HPP. True Street is a lot closer and it looks like they are very Ford friendly so I'll probably go with them assuming the price is comparable.

Appreciate you folks getting back to me BTW. Sorry someone had an issue with MMR, and another with the BBB, but I just need a tuner.

Stick around you'll get tons of terrible advice, we're known for it.
