Professional tuner in metro-Atlanta?

I recently acquired a turbo'd 8 and am encountering a number of issues with occasional stalling, slightly inconsistent idle, and constant backfiring.

The car was previously tuned by someone on the boards though I don't recall who. The stalling is new but the idle and backfiring have been persistent from the get go and the previous owner didn't seem to get them fixed.

Can anyone recommend a professional tuner in the metro-Atlanta who has expertise with the rotaries, specifically with the greedy/renesis combo?

Thanks!

Do you have a venting blow off valve (not recirculating)?

It's a HKS Super SQV. VTA from what I can tell.

I have been going to MazCare for years, though they aren't a tuning shop.

we've been saying that....

Mainstream Performace is the only tuning shop I would go to. They are good guys there. Scott is an amazing tuning although he has only tuned a handful of rotaries. They have knowledge base of the Cobb AP from tuning tons of other cars. The main thing is getting the little quirks dialed in mechanically before getting your tune. Like I have mentioned before, I'm more than willing to come down and lend a hand with anything you need. Definitely recic your BOV and I will bet that solves your problems with backfiring and the car shutting off. with the SSQV you're going to have to buy aa recic kit but it's only 20-30 bucks I believe

Nope. I called the shop this morning and was told that they could probably recommend someone. He actually had been trying to steer me away from anything with a turbo on it.

I'll order a recirculating kit for the BOV this weekend.
