Recommended Shops in Phoenix/Scottsdale for 3.0 turbo

I've just purchased my first 911 and it's a sort of sleeper/resto-mod. It's a 1976 911S, with well done SC flares, some brake and suspension upgrades, and most importantly a total drivetrain swap from a 1977 Turbo Carrera. It is, as you can imagine tons of fun!

However, it needs some refreshing and tlc. The vacuum advance on the distributor, the wastegate needs to be rebuilt, CIS vacuum leak etc.

I know of Patrick Motorsports and Beck's European by word of mouth as experienced Porsche shops, but would appreciate any feedback or suggestions the community might have to offer.

Thanks!

Welcome, and congratulations!

TurboKraft. Chris is a regular poster on this forum, damn good chap as regularly attested by other Pelicanites. They're in Mesa, I think you may quite like some of the toys they work on

Second to Chris Carroll @ TurboKraft. If you want it done right, that's the place to go.

Have done business with TurboKraft even from a Wisconsin. I would not hesitate to recommend him. Wish I lived closer for my Porsche's needs.

You'd be proud of me. I actually drove my car today in the RAIN. Yep. I cringed, but I did it.

Heat even worked!

Too funny! You are such the dreamer...
Your life was so much more simple when you only wished for a big turbo...

The video, HotStuff - check it out (you'll probably request more once you do, however - just like Jeff did! )!
