custom shop in Tampa area

Greetings, was wondering if anyone can recommend a good shop in the Tampa/Clearwater/St Pete area that does exhaust, engine/tuning etc work. I'm new to the area and new to owning a Bimmer so not really sure what's available around here and is reputable.

I've done some Googling but would like to hear some ideas from some of our resident gurus. A couple that I've found that seem ok are "Cars and Concepts" and "Tuning Dynamics" and they have good reviews.

Thanks in advance!

I use Tuning Dynamics in the Tampa area when I need a garage to lean on. Always had good experiences with them.

Proven Power has always been good to me, and they have a dyno.

Thank you both. I'll check them out. The latter shop Proven Power having a dyno is definitely a plus lol. I just have a 430i so I'm not going to be pushing crazy power but seeing your real progress will be nice.

My car is still under factory warranty for another 1.5 years but in a year I'm going to flash BM3 93 Stage 1 and hopefully get low 300's at the wheels and will be happy. This is just a daily driver but would like some pep and some burbles and better sound overall but not looking for anything crazy and definitely don't want to blow up my engine! Will have to get a new car eventually for any real power to be had (B58, S55, etc)
