Default Engine Dyno/Tune in Midwest

My new engine is almost done. I am adding almost 100ci and 200hp over my original 454 mag. I am wondering if there is someone trustworthy nearby where i can get the new engine tuned before i put it in the boat. Mark at Precision Marine will be doing the initial calibration on the ECU, and i am sure it will be close, but i would like to have it dialed in perfectly if possible. As much as i would like to take it down to Louisiana, and have Mark do it, I just don"t think it is in the cards right now. I am sure he is busy beyond belief and it is just too far. I am in Southern Indiana near Evansville. 2 hrs W of Louisville, KY 3hrs E of St Louis and 2 hrs N of KY Lake.
If anyone has any recommendations, please let me know.

Thanks in advance

Tyler Crocket in Ruby, MI is worth the drive. He could dial it in in the boat or on the dyno...in the boat is generally best.

A buddy of mine sent his to Mark at Precision after he didn't have much luck locally. My buddy is from northern IL.

I live in Newburgh and Eddie's Shop is about 2.5 hours if you go to Bowling Green, KY and pick up I-65 South, He's good and has always treated me fairly on the work he has done.
