Default Opinion on tuner in the CT area

Ok so obviously no disrespect to either shop, I am asking because I think they are both the best around. I have the choice to go to Kyle at KMC motosports or a little further and go to Lloydz. Neither place has an opening till June but I have to schedule pretty quick as bike is popping after shifts.

Would you say they are equal or anyone have any thoughts on where I should go?

Price is basically the same, I don't mind riding the extra distance to Lloydz so neither of those are factors.

Thanks for the input!

From what I understand, Kyle has taken over for Lloyd as far as dynoes/tunes. I witnessed him doing a bunch of tunes this past Sunday at MOM's in Mass. Kid knows his stuff.

You won't go wrong either way. Kyle did my tune last Sunday and its phenomenally good He's also seriously down to earth and easy to talk too.

popping isnt really a big deal, not hurting anything, but what bike do you have, what do you have done to it?

Kyle gets crazy busy when he comes home from the road so getting in may be tuff. If you can get an appointment at Lloydz, take a nice day ride up there. You will not be dissapointed with either (they are both great). I think you have a better shot at getting in at Lloydz just because Kyle is on the road a lot and there is a ton of prep for all those trips.
