Good Porsche mechanics in central CT?

I'm about 20 mins. south of Hartford, any thoughts?

I'm thinking I need to have my timing belt re-tensioned, and perhaps an alignment check on balance shafts. Any idea how much this would cost me?

Yes, several. Musante Motorsports in Windsor and Auto Associates of Canton both have impeccable reputations, and I believe they are both Porsche-only shops. Bristol Motor Works has always been very good to me, but the shop changed ownership recently; as far as I know, all the mechanics stayed except for the previous owner (who is now the 911 engine building specialist at Auto Associates).

Auto Associates of Canton is a very good shop and well known, it will cost you though.

There's a European car "specialist" on main st in Glastonbury that typically has a few Porsches outside - any one heard anything about them? Not sure on the name... Bristol and Windsor aren't too bad, but Canton is a bit of a drive.

I have always gotten the creeps from that place on main street, I don't have any real proof about them though. I use Import Auto in Manchester. It is near the mall. My parents have known the owner/mechanic for many years. He is a Porsche trained mechanic and does good work. He worked on my fathers 944 and a few jobs on my 944. (860-649-6094) I would take a look here, and its the only shop I can recommend from personal use.

P.S.- You a fellow Glastonbury resident?

Right next-door in Marlborough. I'll give that shop a check, thanks.
