Hey everyone, I recently purchased a 2004 e. blue SRT-4 and live in San Antonio. Being that this is my first turbo car and have limited access to garage/tools (live in Lackland dorms). I was wondering where you guys in the S.A. area get all your auto work done (i.e tuning, mods, etc) and if you can point me in the right direction when I begin to start modding my car. Thanks.

yeah with my tools here I can't do much, probably an intake, tailights, and other things that don't take a lot of time. Don't know what I plan to do first as far as upgrades, probably just do some visual upgrades (tailights, tint, etc) until i get the engine broken in.

i live up on security hill and don't go to main base that much, but it's electric blue, i go to the hobby shop to do oil changes and stuff, but i'm not to educated on turboed cars and i don't want to go and mess something up (1st turbo car) last vehicle was a 95 dodge dakota. basic mods i can handle like intake, STS, etc. but when it comes to BOV, WGA, FMIC, etc i have no experience. i could probably learn over time, but would rather have someone who knows what they're doing to help out
