Decent Detroit area high performance shop?

Is there somewhere in the metro detroit area with competent mechanics that can work on a tuned Cobalt? I've been out to ZZP for a dyno tune etc. but it's a 2.5 hours drive, not super convenient. Right now the car seems to be running rich and is a bit laggy, no codes but something just feels off, I'd like to have someone knowledgeable take a look at it. Any recommendations?

Have you checked codes or are you just saying that because the light isnt on? Its a good idea to check for codes anyway. Idk of anyone in the detroit area that works specifically on cobalts besides myself and a couple buddies but none of us have LNF. Shane Hatfield may be able to help you out in the LNF department.

Heading to ZZP next week weds. We'll see what they find out. OTTP is closer, do they wrench on cars, or just sell parts?

Short story ZZP found nothing wrong, suggested plugs and try diff. fuel (I always buy from the same place). Did both, no diff.
As you can see from the dynos, there's a small drop in performance from last year to this year.

Now i'm dealing with a P0100/limp in, replaced MAF, verified continuity are the connector, still getting it after about 20mins of driving. Friggin pain in the ass.

Here's last years dyno:


Here's this years:
