New FRS owner. Looking for suggestions on local upgrade shops in southeastern VA

Sup folks. I'm a new FRS owner. Bought it back in January of this year. 2015 FRS. I love the car, but I may be looking to upgrade to a turbo charger or a super charger. Wondering if you guys could give me some input on your experiences with both and a recommended shop in the Hampton Roads area for the install? Any info would be appreciated. Thanks.

I have no experience with forced induction but here is my $0.02

First, get a good Oil cooler. Second, get a reputable kit.

Shops in the area you can't go wrong with are PTUNING in Manassas Virginia and Pure Automotive in Maryland.

I'm not a shop, per se, but I consult and do side work.

I got a Super Charger for sale and in the HR a lot.

But a great shop in the HR is Trust Automotive. Talk to Ross; he’s the man! A lot of people go to him for questions and to have work done.

I believe trust is in Chesapeake.

Also you don’t NEED a Oil cooler. In the winter your car may not get up to a good operating temp. Trust me I know first hand lol
