Most serious tuners from across canada and the states have something to do with G5....

If i had another honda, i would definately build it AGAIN with them....

edot: Also the guys that work there are really friendly + willing to give any help you need.
I agree with everything in this post
Every experience I had with the guys at Garage 5 was positive

Pretty sure that Dinamix guy was joking.. I think anyone here will know that honda and parts are not exactly rare- unless your going for some uber rare jdm fanboy parts.

Question to the OP: What are you going to use to tune? G5 does not work with Chrome- which I prefer. That may be a very important deciding factor for you; you always need a good tune and not some lego build.

Holy shit, everyone calm down about the Honda comment. It was blatant sarcasm.

On topic:
I've heard a lot of good things about Garage Five as well and I'll be taking my FG2 there once the K-Pro equivalent is released.

It really depends on what you're looking for.

A&J is well known for building very quick track cars.

Everybody??? You're asking if anybody specializes in the most common car type in Vancouver. Be more specific. Do you need turbos or just engine fixing because I guarantee you every every garage in Vancouver has seen their share of hondas and knows them inside and out.

no, there has got to be a shop that has seen more hondas than others and takes more pride in them. But yeah, if you start talking Forced Induction and stuff I know that it could change around.

I think majority of this thread has voted for Garage 5 in richmond
Give them a call and see what they can do for you (I dont believe you stated exactly what you need done)

You've got nothing to lose but 5 mins of your time
