Who Knows a Great Fuel Injection Mechanic Around Longview?

Hey fellas: Does anybody know a really good fuel injection mechanic in our area that can look at my Vortec 350? I've had a long history of running rich on one bank of cylinders that keeps on wiping out the associated catalytic converter and wasting gas.

I'm no mechanic but its possible it may have something to do with the whipple. Apparently the fuel system controller that comes with it isn't the best, but thats really a guess more than anything

I think any shop with a good scanner (like a Tech2) would have a good chance of telling you what is wrong.

Thanks Whifflebat, but that's the reason I want an experienced fuel injection tech. Most of us know enough to be dangerous, but really don't know crap

The Whipple package on the '96 Vortec 5.7L does not have a computer interface like the late model Vortec engines. This problem is either a MAF/O2 input problem, a mechanical problem or a computer problem.
