Default Needing a good mod person for nitro any ideas?

I'm looking for a good person that can mod my V-spec VZ. I live in Illinois I like to find someone close but its not that big of a deal if I don't. The motor needs a pinch and wanting some mod work done on it. If you guys know of a good person that can be trusted please let me know. Thanks RT

Very nice guy and would give you the shirt off his back...
Does amazing work but I must add he is strictly a Novarossi guy
That's all I run anymore and have found there the best mill for the $$$ and most reliable
His website is in my signature

I have three modded motors from Rick at RB Mods and he seems to do a great job. I am going send my next mill whenever that may be to Brian at Pro Twister Mods in Tn just cause I have heard alot of good things about his work.

His drivers running his motors win alot of races. My boy runs his stuff and 1 engine has 11 + gallons on it and still keeps going.

Adam @ ABmods. He is one of the few w/ a dyno to back up his work. He's also a hell of a nice guy and is happy to answer any questions you may have! Love my Stage-2 JPX .21!

I use RBMods, no issues with anything he has done, better fuel economy, smoother and more power, and the guy is very knowledgeable.

I am not sure how many modders pinch motors. I pinch motors and do modifying and epoxy ramp cranks. #1 the crank would have to be in good condition before I mod it. Seems like about 8 out of 10 v-specs I get for a pinch the crank is worn pretty bad.
