For installing tires and alignment I would go to "hawaiian tire and auto center". I only trust them to install tires on my wheels. Been to other shop and fucked up my wheels.

For exhaust mod, or installing supercharge I will go" rad motorsports " ask for Wil. They just made a custom x pipe for exhaust, the exhaust did a bad ass welding job.

For body shop, "JL Auto Body Works". My car just got keyed ( lots of hater here) they repainted my rear quarter panel and it was 100% paint matched. Cost some $$$$ but really know what they are doing?

For auto detailing " Shea's Luxury Detail ", hear they are very good.

Hope this link will answer some of your questions about recon.
The only reason I got it done because they won't pass me for safety inspection if I don't have recon. ( I have suspension mod)

I'd go with the 535 ... You really don't need the extra HP for Oahu and no need of the extra cooling if you're not gonna track the car.

535 install is cake ... ESS did a great job on the design and I would do it on my own if I was you.

What's up everyone. I own 808E90's old car. It has an ESS 535 with upgraded pulley and a few other goodies . Perfect daily driver. I love how composed it is during normal driving and how smooth the power delivery is. Looking to do a dyno day. Anyone in? Evan, I know you are down your car sounds insane! Hit me up if you have any questions.
