I'll second that; they are not the cheapest but they stand by their work and will not give you your car until the work is done right.Tony is one of the best shops anywhere. Give him a call, get a tour. And they can do ANYTHING to your car you want. And his work is 1st rate. He always works really hard to make sure you're 100% happy.
On a Friday night, the guy even waited 2 hours after closing to 8 pm for me, becuase I was stuck in traffic. Then spent another full 1/2 hour going over my car with me to make sure I was happy.
Top service, top work. Can't say enought...
Thanks..Ed said he could do the install for $900.00 plus $500.00 for the tuning which is not bad. The supercharger installed will cost around $8000.00. He seemed to have some other ideas to boost performance. I asked him to give me some more ideas for boosting from 400 HP to 500 HP and see if I can hit in between the $3,000.00 to $5,000.00 range in cost. That would be a better sell to the wife!artyon:
Thanks for that feedback Martin - After my visit to the dealership and them wanting to give me $35K on trade in, I believe I will keep this car quite some time. You do have to consider resale value when you tune a car. I realize in the long run I will lose, but it will be worth it to have that much power! I can mod a bunch cheaper than investing in a Z06 to get 505 hP. I read a good article on the L92 Heads and the L76 Intake at gmhightechperformance.com. I believe the link is:You say, 100 HP - Head and Cam Package, headers and exhaust, and CAI Tune - $6000 parts and labor.
Sounds about right. I would just say be careful about package selection. Study up. Also know, and maybe you do, you're likely to get a very small % of mod money back when you sell the car. And it will make your car much harder to sell. So many of us on these boards mod, but that's not what most who own a Vette do. So when people buy used, they look for stock, or very close to it. Stock with a few simple bolt-ons. So, if you plan on keeping your car for a LONG time and "driving" those mods (heads/cam), great, that's another story.
This is a L92/L76 swap we did. We swapped the cam for a milder one, installed CNC L92s in place of unported ones, dropped the compression, improved the driveability greatly, AND PICKED UP 25 HP AT THE WHEELS. Do a search on CF or LS1tech on this car. We got rave reviews.Re: the L92 Heads and the L76 Intake, folks seem to be having problems making this combo work and getting power across the full band. So far the best results I’ve seen with this setup and power across the band are by Dynotech. BUT they will not sell the package without doing the install. If you want specifics on this package, PM me, I’ll send them to you. You can also check them out at:
This is ALL very true, and I remember the very car, even when it started! Great numbers. I keep doing the "added expense" thing. Hope you'll let Kevin drive some cars. :thumbsup:This is a L92/L76 swap we did.

We've also built several LS2 403s, along with other LS1s, stock displacement, strokers, 6 litres, etc. We prefer to use ETP 11 degree heads. But they are expensive.
The issues people are having with the L92 heads are nothing more than over camming issues. They seem to want an earlier intake valve closing point.
They are hands down the best performance head FOR THE MONEY. Most aftermarkets will out flow/out perform, but at added expense.
Ironically enough, the owner of that white vert's name is Kevin.This is ALL very true, and I remember the very car, even when it started! Great numbers. I keep doing the "added expense" thing. Hope you'll let Kevin drive some cars. :thumbsup:
