Baby KO aka Jeevey aka ETL garage from the mr2 boards has a pretty good reputation for a new guy. You may have to wait a few weeks before he can get you in.

Integrity Auto in pasadena specializes in mr2's, but their mechanical work seems to be hit or miss. Personally, I wouldn't chance it.

Honestly, I've come to the conslusion that if you really want good work, you just have to be willing to pay through the nose at a boutique shop. Like $75-$150 an hour. Something like XS Engineering, SP engineering, Twins Turbo, RB Motoring etc. Good luck getting an appointment.

I almost forgot, you could try Berk, They are mr2 specialists. Really Berk is the only reputable mr2 specialist in socal that I know of. But that isn't saying much since there are so few mr2 specialists.

Honestly, I hate mechanics. The cheap ones will f*** up your car, and then blame the car, or you. The expensive ones will look down on you unless you throw gobs of cash at them. And even then, unless you are an important name in "the scene" may try to screw you.

I'm not sure "reputable garage" isn't an oxymoron.

Try Jeevey.

Depends on what you want to get done. Be more specific and then someone may be able to send you in the right direction.

^put Berk Technology into a search engine. Go to mr2oc and do a search for ETL garage or Jeevey.

Not hard.

I have a shop in Riverside that is able to do really good maintenance work on my AllTrac. As for tuning, what exactly are you looking for? Let me know as they can do some tuning but it depends on what your looking for.

They are called:
Riverside Carburetor & Electric Incorporated
4600 Palm Ave, Riverside, CA (951) 684-5155
