Custom tune for 2012 Mazdaspeed3?

Looking for at least a semi-local shop (I'm in the woodbury/deptford) area to do a custom tune on my 2012 Mazdaspeed 3. Any shops with experience on this platform. There are some really famous e-tuners on the Mazdaspeed forums but I'd prefer to not have to continually do 100+mph pulls on public highways to dial the tune in. Looking for a place that not only has experience with this platform but can do custom dyno tunes using the Cobb AP/ATR.

Current mods are: intake, turbo inlet pipe, cobb downpipe, and autotech hpfp internals. Btw, I'm not hitting my boost targets with the OTS Cobb Stage 2 map (getting 17lbs instead of the targeted 18.5).
Thanks in advance!

We are a bit of a drive probably but Andy has good experience with the Cobb AP and MS3s. We are an Authorized Cobb Protuner for the MS cars.

Hey Erik, how are you? I like the fact that you are an Authorized "Mazdaspeed" ProTuner. If I call who should I ask to speak to? Btw, I visited your website- do you have the Gen2 3" Cobb Cat-Backs in-stock/on-hand? TIA

18psiWhiteMS3 had his MS3 tuned there (4xxHP), great peoples. A co workers friend just used RT Tuning and he was nothing but pleased, RT has a great reputation either way you're in great hands.

Yeah the pulls I had to do just to make sure my internals were good were license stripping speeds.

Btw, what mods are you running?

Cool yeah I have the SURE RMM, SS plate and counter-weight- really helped firm up the shifts and kept the shift knob at standard height. The SURE/StreetUnit team hired us for some video work and we spend a week down in Florida recently shooting some promos and install videos for them. Here are a few of the ones completed thus far:

Thanks. Wow, lost your license?! I won't even ask...lol. Regarding the internals I had a local mechanic do it for me- unfortunately I'm more of an Audio/Video guy rather than a gear-head. The more advanced stuff is like greek to me. Btw, I'm seeing 1800-1900psi on WOT pulls in 4th now!
