    I'd start at automobile associates in Canton, but probably not for the wheels....

    Speedsport tuning in Danbury does a lot of racing work, and they almost always have some cool 4 cam engines in the shop being rebuilt as well. Rennwerke in Elmsford NY also has a wide following. I've done work with both. And of course, Automobile Associates, which has already been recommended.

    Good luck!

    Look up Dan Jacobs. Helped us with tuning tips on the injection. Good guy. Automobile Associates was good too.

    OK, I'll put in $.02 for Automobile Associates. I'm pretty sure that they don't do wheels but certainly know where to send them. They will probably recommend some dude in Northern California.

    Regards

    Not sure where in northeast CT you're coming from, but if you want to go east I highly recommend Jerry Pellegrino at EPE in West Natick, MA.

    May be equidistant to you vs central or western CT, prob closer than NY.
