Need a Reliable Turbo Install Shop NYC/LI/NJ: 1st hand Experience Preferred

Round two of my turbo install...

I need a reliable shop that is reasonably priced yet attentive to details. I'm hoping someone can point me out to place that THEY have used and are satisfied with. Ive already had a NIGHTMARE experience with my first turbo install shop (see my other thread) so now i want to do this right and know exactly who is working on my car.

Petrolwerks: Ive used them in the past for some minor work in the past, but ive had a bad experience with them. They couldn't complete my alignment right and sent me off to Intrack in Queens from LI with a disconnected control arm. Plus they quoted $1500 for turbo install

MNC: I used them for clutch and some gasket work. I would love to go back to MNC. ***Edit, Martin is solid. Not the greatest at responding, but him and his guys are reliable and quick.

Autocouture Motors: I would bite the bullet and pay their higher prices for install, since their reputation is the best...but they do not allow customers to supply their own parts, so next...

Stance Shop: Ive known Keith for years now, he is best with suspension and minor install parts. He told me he is willing to do my turbos, but id be his first, lol. To save a few hundred and let him do it....?


I've checked the official install shop list on this subforum, but that thread is outdated, and most of those shops dont seem to enthused to work on my n54. Ive also called MANY "BMW Specialty shops" but most shops either dont respond or are just not really interested in isntalling aftermarket parts.





Lemme know what you got! Please list what you had done, with who, costs. ETC please.

Garage List
Just under an hour from NYC: TySpeed has experience both on and off the track. They just got done building a 900WHP M5 for a friend of mine and are competing in Pikes Peak with their M2 Race Car.

1st Hand Experience: Ty helped build and maintain my track car which sees 20+ days per season. No turbo on my M Coupe but they have done plenty of engine service for me.

Update, I ended up going back to MNC.

Martin and his techs are solid. He completed my turbo install, fluid flushes, intake valve cleaning, obd port rebuild all withing 2 days.

Sometimes they are hard to reach, but Martin is a master tech and their work is top notch. Check out their IG
