Default Any SC Merc Owners Around Austin TX?

I've got a "new-to-me" Formula 353 Fastech with modified 525SCs and I'm looking for other owners of SC Mercs near Austin who have wrenching-level knowledge of these engines. I'm not looking for someone to work on them, I'm looking for someone with mechanical experience to bounce questions off of and maybe drink a beer or two.

Thanks.

Well I guess I am the Lone Ranger with 525SCs around Austin. Anyone else out there with these ANYWHERE that are wrenching and maintaining them yourselves? I'd like to have a call and ask a few questions.

Thanks.
