Mod friendly SA in NorCal?

Looking to install an ESS SC kit later this month and was wondering if anyone (preferably in SF or the Penninsula) has a service adviser that they can recommend? My last SA at Peter Pan was great, but he has moved on. Thanks in advance.

There are very few times I wished I lived in SoCal and this is one of them lol. Also, finding a quality aftermarket shop close enough to San Francisco is also a challenge.

If he is in SF as his signature says... Concord is a good 1 hour drive away so it is not close.

About an hour is right depending on traffic. But then again, so is Fremont so either one will work at this point if they're the only friendlies in the area.

I don't know any SA's in Concord but I do know a former tech that used to work here and a salesman there who has a tastefully modded 135. I'll PM you the tech's name so just request to have him work on your vehicle. He's a really cool guy and highly informed and in tuned with the modded scene.

-EDIT-

I can't PM you so PM me please.

I'll use your guy as a back up. Had a good convo with Kevin today. He will not make any note of sc or anything else. He also had the crew hand wash my car today. Car enthusiast for sure v

Mike,

I've know Kenny for over 15 years through mutual friends and he serviced my car since my 1999 BMW.

You're in good hands.
