Who just won the extreme modified class in GA? That should help you. Look no further. Nuff said.

destroyer-since we already tuned it, give me a call at the shop and I can price it out. YEs we won the race down south but we have MAny motors running out there that are going fast and being reliable. Not to ,mention 30 years of racing experience in racing between kenny and richie. We will build it then take it to the track with you and get the car dialed right in. As you have seen, if we can build 6 sec cars and get them down the track, then getting your ls1 running flawlessly will not be an issue.

This is one of the best part about ESP, they have racing experiance, and not just motor stuff, they can tune suspention like mad, and help out all the time.
great people and great work :cheers:

TTP did a forged setup for a customer and when it was started up the first time, the car didn't smoke a bit.. not a puff of blue smoke.. idled great and performed excellent on the dyno- great power.

If you're in Orange County- TTP would be the closest as well, and if you get quotes from other shops (like those mentioned in the above posts) you will see that TTP will offer excellent prices.

Sorry to hear of the demise of your motor Shawn... must be pretty bad if you saw the copper visually in the oil. Anything in particular you think may have done it? I like the guys at TTP.

Dean Dean, how have ya been? Yeah there was a ton of copper, but i'm not sure what did it. I was so pumped to get my car tuned at ESP after putting on my true duals only to find the metal in my oil a day before the dyno. But the ol but meter say's it was running good. Did you have any work done at TTP? Later Shawn

I did a redyno there after switching my cats and catback. Just enjoying my vert since the weather has broken! I am really happy with the balance of performance in my car. Drop me a line if you are in Bergen County and drop in.

You wont find anyone more experienced at building what you need then Richie and Ken. Shop around and see what youi think, just look at who has built many 8,9 and 10 sec cars that are reliable. There are only a few out there that I know of.

To hell with the rest of these guys, I should build it!

actually, I'd say shop around but the guys at ESP will take good care of you just as good (if not better) than any other shop and they have a ton of experience :thumb:

If you are looking for someone that builds alot of 10,9,8,7 second motors then Bob at CE Racing is your guy. He is primarily a mustang guy but he has been doing more LS1's lately. This guy builds a bullit proof motor. He did my brothers old 306 and has made over 500hp for over 4 seasons now with out a problem :eek2: Cartek, TTP and ESP are all killer shops, but no matter who builds it SLOWHAWK has to tune it!!!!!!!!

CR racing messed up 3 motors in my buddies stang, and the sad part is, they wernt even "race motors"
however they also built a procharged motor in another budies car that has run mint for about a year now.
whoever builds it should tune it IMO :)
