Lingenfelter definitely does things right so you cant go wrong thereartyon:
Hey guys, in my free time over here in Iraq, I came across Lingenfelter Perfomance Engineering's website and took a gander at the 430 HP C5 package. Its a bit pricey for me, but
:agree:LPE is very reputable tuner. I used them and have no regrets. Dealing with both LPE and ECS have been a pleasurable experience. I got what I paid for. They both stand behind their products.
Some people have saved a lot of money by doing it themselves. But there are others who did it themselves or used a bargin basement tuners for mods and end up being frustrated and spending more money in the long run than if they had it done properly the first time.
:agree: That is why I am going with them the day after my boots hit the ground when I come home from Iraq. After cooresponding with John at 21st CenturyMuscle cars in Texas, via email, I was very impressed with the professionalism displayed so far. I could spend twice as much coin trying to piecemeal the same upgrades that LPE will apply all at once.Well, I have thought a lot about the 430 horse rebuild through LPE. It sounds like a great investment. One of my coupes has 145000 miles on it so I imagine that before too long that I will want to take this plunge. Way I look at it, I would rather spend $7500 with LPE than to spend a few thousand for local guys to get it right. I have never seen anything bad or even questionable from LPE. That's where my money will go... :thumbsup:

:agree:Absolutely! I personally would rather spend the money for a serious pro job from LPE than try & see if Big Jim down at the hotrod shop can get it right.
A lot of guys haven't had experience with LS1's & that scares me...I feel like LPE knows everything there is to know about them & I can sleep well at night knowing my money has been invested wisely... I can't wait to get it done! artyon:
Since I am stuck here in Baghdad for a few more months, I am sure you will have your work done before I do. I plan to post pics of my once it is finished. If you do get it done before me, please post pics and let me (and everyone else) know how it turns out.artyon:
There are some great vendors that carry good engine dress-up parts, West Coast Corvettes has a handsome looking carbon fiber kit that I have my eye on. However, I am adjusting my budget while I am over here so I can pay cash up front for the LPE job on my return. Look forward to seeing and reading about your LPE rebuild:thumbsup:Sure thing bro! I hope to do mine early fall/winter & you better believe I'll be posting up when I get it done. I am also going to inquire with LPE when the time comes about cool fuel rail covers or if it looks nice enough I may just leave them off... I am sure I'll be wanting to show off the new work so fuel rail covers might just be in the way...lol
I like the looks of the LPE's fuel rail covers.Sure thing bro! I hope to do mine early fall/winter & you better believe I'll be posting up when I get it done.

The LPE covers come with the package. 21st Century Musclecars made these for my car when I upgraded to the LPE 403.:agree:
I hope when I have my package put on that I have enough to spare to have those put on as well.
