Reliable Indy shops in calgary?

So I got a boost leak on my car and I need to get it fixed. Anyone know a good indy shop in Calgary that I should go too?

Do you know where it is? Have you installed anything lately that could have caused it?
Dunno any shops in Calgary though  :-\

Oh this is Mandeep. Those codes point to a Vacuum leak (not boost) or possible bad MAP sensor. Good luck with repair  :)

It's possible that its related to your oil filler cap.  Remove it, and replace it and see what happens.
sometimes when you put it back on, it doesn't go on properly and only half of it is secured.  It should be very easy to twist on.  If its not, then chances are it went in at an angle and isn't sealing properly. (causing a vac. leak)

Hey guys, so I took my car to Motorwerks and they found a Radiator leak, gasket leak, AND  a vacuum leak. Lol

Got them to fix the gasket leak and vac leak but they were asking too much for the radiator leak so im just going to buy a new radiator and install it myself.  Anyone know a reliable website to buy the parts from?
Oh and Fernando thank you for your offer. Was def going to take you up on your offer but I was in lethbridge and as soon as I got back from Calgary I had an appt with my mechanic.
