Default Las Vegas Shop for daily driver

Hello Everyone,

Can anyone recommend a local Las Vegas area mechanic/repair shop for a non Corvette daily driver?

I'm looking for a reliable shop for maintenance, light repair, etc.

Thank you in advance for any recommendations.

I'm in Boulder City...small shop, very affordable and have a vast and extensive history, mostly in major modification, but since being in Boulder City have been looking for reliable side work and clients to supplement my primary business.

If Boulder city is too far try Quality star at 3420 Rancho dr. 702 685 6500. It's kinda N/W part of town near the Santa Fe hotel-casino

How about a local shop that is good at tuning?

I've heard NO good things about the tuning environment in the area from people I've met with LS swapped cars. I even spoke to a guy who works at "count customs" and says even where they send LS swapped stuff comes back a mess. I tuned EMS for almost a decade and had a chassis dyno for much of that time. I'd like to possibly position myself as an LS tuner in the LV area, but currently I'm just located too far out and need to find a partnership opportunity. I don't think the story is much different now/here than then/where I used to be though. When shops would "tune" a car in under 45 minutes comprised of 4-5 dyno pulls...well...I just had to say...whatever.

Look up Leading Edge Performance on University ave. never had a tune, just regular maintenance stuff there on a C5. They do LS high performance stuff and I sometimes see them at the race track.


​​​​​​​ Btw, this Friday 6pm I think they have 1/4 mi racing. LVMS.com
