X-Treme Horsepower review
 
Not affiliated with the Vendor X-treme Horsepower.
This experience is from a customer (me) perspective.


I wanted to give my Camaro a little extra oomph with out going too aggressive.
Just wanted a few mods and a safe tune
So in need a few minor performance upgrades to be done X-Treme Horsepower was willing and ready to oblige, Taking time to listen to my concerns and questions.
Then provided a professional straight forward answer to all my questions and concerns offering up solutions and options to what I was looking for in a performance upgrade.

The shop:
Nothing short of state-of-the art!
It houses today’s modern high-tech equipment including to a fully computerized dyno for that special custom tune just for you and your automobiles specific application.
The store front:
On site extensive selection of top-of-the line automotive performance parts.
Don’t see it on the shelf, don’t fret! because if they don’t have it there they can get it at a competitive cost to you and usually within a day or so from your order.

Appearance:
The facility is neat and clean

Your cars safety:
Strict no car left out overnight policy!

The technicians:
Fully staffed with mechanics that are knowledgeable and experienced with today's hot rods

The experience:
was pleasant and happy to say I will be a repeat customer.

First
was to install a MTI Racing Short throw shifter http://www.mtiracing.com/purchase/20...10-camaro.html

which I purchased and brought in.
When installed and the job completed, I knew immediately I would be back.

Second
Returning with high expectations a few months later for a performance upgrade
Which included but not limited to…
Airaid CAI http://www.airaid.com/images/Product...250-243-LG.jpg

Kooks Long Tube stainless Headers http://www.kookscustomheaders.com/index.php
http://i44.photobucket.com/albums/f4...d/7fefdb87.jpg


Kooks High Flow Cats
Custom Dyno Tune
Installed everything and tuned the car to its peak performance.
My Camaro now feels runs and sounds like a very different car just As soon As I drove it I remember thinking it as it should have preformed from the factory.

So if you need short throw shifter, Headers, N20, Cat back to a full-blown high performance custom built long block X-Treme Horsepower can fit the bill.
They offer several package deals to choose from just for the

:sm1: forum members.

Wow I couldn't have said it any better. I too have had an awesome experience with these guys. Any issue you run into, they get right on top of it and work any kinks out. They tore my block apart and gave me an extra 110rwhp to have fun with! They have a customer for life here. :thumbsup:

I have the Automatic and would love to get some extra performance out of the car...I have the K&N installed and SLP loudmouth II so far....Would a tune make a great difference in the performance of the car?? Would that also void my warrenty...I am having eric from NMC do some installs on lights for me tom. I live in NRH over by Iron Horse Golf Course

How do you like that MTI Shifter? That is the whole assembly (housing) replacement right? Why did you go that way over Hurst? Is the throw as short as Hurst?


ALSO--- Xtreme for the win, cannot wait to get to write my review!

Love the shifter very solid feel and quiet smooth shifts.

I like the build quality and one piece design of the MTI shaft as opposed to the 2 piece design.
and the cost is a little less but not the quality.
Look at the bushing on the Hurst need to see link

then look at the MTI
also MTI provides a bushing upgrade to the housing Hurst does not

MTI utilizes the factory housing as does the Hurst.
But MTI provides the Delrin a stiffer bushing set to replace the factory rubber ones Hurst does not.
x-treme installed mine in about an hour and 1/2.

I am too a Very Satisfied Customer of X-Treme Horsepower. They installed my Kooks L/T Headers, High Flow Cats and tuned my car. I have ordered a MGW Shifter that I will have them install. Cam will be next on my list for them to install, then saving my pennies for a Blower. Here is my dyno sheet on the Final Run..
