Default Best place to get headers installed and car tuned in San Diego?

I recently got a quote for some work and a tune (not sure if it's too expensive or not, I've been neglecting the car scene for a while). Looking for some additional recommendations and options just in case.

Car is a c5z06
Quote to install longtube headers, x-pipe, align exhaust tips (the current crookedness irritates me) and welding the slip joints- $805
dyno tune for car with vararam, ported throttle body, bigger cam, and full exhaust- $650

Trying to stay in SD if possible
Thanks for any help guys!

RPM in Oceanside is a great exhaust shop.

I personally have had my work and tune done at Excelsior Motorsports in Escondido. Kushan did great work with both my build and tune. I only come back to him for tunes now, pricing for labor is very similar to dealership rates, but the work is top notch.

The install of parts, I have a couple personal friends who can help you out, one located in Lemon Grove and the other in National City, both are Corvette owners.

PM me for contact info of my friends.

Ditto for Excelsior Motorsports in Escondido. Great work from a pro who knows everything Corvette and will give you a quality job and tune. You will be glad you went there.
