NEW to the TX chapter

Well I have only been a member on this forum for a few months and was just told about the Lonestar Chapter so here I am. I live in Victoria, so I am centrally located between Houston and Corpus and only 2 hrs or so from Austin and less to San Antonio. In the performance forum i was told of DI in Houston and another (forgot name) in San Antonio as far as reputeable diesel shops near by. Are there any other big name shops in the area and if so do you know who does the tuning? It seems like all of the "big name" tuners are all out of state, and just trying to see if there are any local ones that i can take my truck to if i was to have problems.
Thanks in advance and sorry for the long post!

Thanks.. I work for a nat gas compressor company. Yea I did not think that there were any, but i was looking at getting a TS chip or PHP but wanted it writeen by a reliable source but at the same time would actually like to go meet the people! Guess you cant have everything.
I might have to join the chapter(s). Just found it and checking it all out. Not sure how often i would be able to make events with work but it would be neat!

Hey southtxdiesel i dont know if you have a facebook to look at this page but just give it a look if you do. This place does all the tuning work and is a H&S Dealer. They do just about everything you can think of and can order anything you want or need. They are located in Victoria, TX also. Havent gotten any work done there myself yet but this is where I plan on buying my H&S Tuner and my DPF Delete at. HE has a regular website but I think they are working on it right now here is the link bro.

Start by checking out the LSP Chat thread, you can pretty much see whats going on and meet everyone. And just check the LSP thread to see whats going on as far as planning events, upcoming events, or just basic info.

You can read the bylaws and if your cool with that just find the order LSP decal thread.

Start posting, and welcome aboard!
