Here are a few shots of some cars in for some mods.

The red GS Vette is getting a 416, twin turbo setup, yank converter, and some dyno tune love.

The Marron LS3 vette is equipped with a Vortech Centri kit, injectors, cam, yank 3200, and our custom tuning. 625rwhp through zr1 manifolds and cats.

The Black Z06 on the rack is getting a Forged rods/pistons, a GPI custom grind cam, already has supporting mods, custom tuning and it will have a good amount of nitrous on it.

The red 03 Z06 is getting a cam, heads, udp, injectors, fast92, ls2 tb, vararam, lts, corsa exhaust, yella terra rockers, custom tuning.

Of couse I had to throw Gretchengotgrowls TT v6 car in here, its getting some forged goodies custom made, and 10s are coming in a v6.....easily too.

The Ferrari F430.....lol its just a cool car in for repairs but I thought Id post it anyhow.

Looking at the shop makes me think that

A. You already had the shop but weren't a sponsor
B. You landed a job with said shop

I think you've definitely earned the right to have/work for one with the awesome times you've run with your car.

Do you mind explaining which it is?

Lol, good question. I have been tuning ls cars for about 9 -10 years. I was a service manager at a large volume marine dealership and worked there for over 11 years. Over the first 8 years I tuned probably 500 vehicles just as side work, but I have been the go to guy in Arkansas for a while. About 2 years ago, Aaron, the fixed operations director and myself started talking about me joining the team. After about a year of talk, we made it happen. So I started at GPI a little over a year ago.

Our dealership has a performance division in house and I basically do all the calibration work for them dyno and street. I do all the Camaro builds, and about half of the vette builds. I also tune ford and dodge product as well as full on build with them too.

But first and foremost, I am lsx to the bone.

My car is my personal daily driver, that I owned before I started there. It isn't a shop car, I buy my parts, and do all my own work and tuning obviously. So it may make sense to more people now why my car is running like it is....lol.

I also did all the calibration and some of the wrench work on Ronnie Hackelton's NMCA/LSX car last year.

I thought that shop looked familiar and then saw the Ferrari and your location. Is it bad that I can tell where it is by a picture of a corner

just to bump this...Rhino has done wrench and tuning work on my car and it's top notch. The guys at GPI are awesome.

Rhino79 07-22-2013 07:27 PM
