Walnut Blasting in Chicagoland area?

Anyone know a reasonably priced place for walnut blasting in the Chicagoland area? I read a post a while back that someone did it themselves. Bought some tools and turned out great. How easy is this to do? I preferably would not want to DIY without some supervision.

From this post, it appears to be A-Spec or A&L.

More expensive and not as easy to use. I don't need a ridiculous amount of power. I think 350whp or so is plenty.

I borrowed a cobb for a couple weeks and it's the easiest thing ever, just plugs into the OBD II port and does its thing. Plus you can pick less aggressive maps for daily driving. Will be buying one for myself after I do suspension.

Interesting. I'm gonna start doing more research into it in the next few weeks. Gonna get the walnut blasting done first.

I love my COBB, super easy to install/uninstall is the reason I choose it over the JB4 and I picked it up used for $650 so not that much more then a JB4.
