List of shops in the Detroit area

Hi all, I just bought my car 2 weeks ago 2010 2SS/RS so I'm still on the "honeymoon" haha. The car already has an AEM CAI and the GM performance parts axle back exhaust and tips. I have a Hurst short throw shifter on the way which I'll install myself. My question here is can any of you folks from the Detroit area (I'm west of Detroit) recommend a shop or shops that could install headers, high flow cats and do a tune. I would like to have all 3 items done by the same shop if possible in the spring. This will give me all winter to research tunes and exhaust systems. Thanks in advance folks.

Yes in my research so far everything is pointing to Livernois Motorsports. Also thanks for the invite to join the club I may just do that.

Thanks for all of the recommendations folks, and it looks like Livernois is the place for me. Next spring can't come soon enough!! Now on to getting that short throw shifter installed next Saturday.

Welcome and come check out the club, we are having a Meeting this Friday you could come check out other member's cars, and maybe get some ideas for further winter / spring mods you could do yourself or at a shop.

I can help you with advise. I put my own headers and high flow cats and corsa exhaust. I also have the hurst short throw shifter. And a Ted Jannetty tune for a 100.00$. You can purchase a hand held tuner such as a SCT and do it yourself. You can get the hand held tuner used on camaro5. all the DIY are on this site pretty much. I install heads up displays if interested. This would be a good winter project if you don't drive your car year round.

http://www.livernoismotorsports.com/...e-Package.html

and we install it with new gaskets, spark plugs, roto-fab cai, kooks headers, and catted pipes for the mail order parts/tune price you listed. Oh, and we dyno tune it afterwards as well

I would highly recommend Livernois. They did a bunch of work on my car. Before I took it to them I talked to just about every performance shop in the area (and there are several good ones). I chose Livernois and couldn't be happier with the decision. They are very knowledgeable and honest. Dan, Rick, Andy and the whole crew over there are good folks.

+1 for Livernois. They do great work.

You might also want to look at Walsh Motorsports in Wixom. My friend has his twin turbo kit installed and tuned by them and was very happy with the results. They are a bit more west than Livernois too.

Thanks again everybody for the info and thanks for the response Rick. I have another question and if it isn't appropriate for this thread I'm sure a moderator will move it to where it needs to be. I need some help in I.D.ing the CAI that was on my car when I bought it (see pics) I have over exposed the second pic just to show where the filter connects. The coupling is by Vibrant Performance, the filter is an AEM 9" Brute Force dryflow. I'm thinking the CAI is AEM but I cant see where any of their CAI have the coupling in the middle like mine has, theirs seem to be all one piece, so if anybody can I.D. this part please let me know. Thanks!

Dan

i have dealt with vector and livernois.

vector- smaller shop, faster, cheaper. but they don't answer there phones half the time, and only do GM cars and mainly focuses on engine work. which worries me, because in this economy you have to do more than just GM cars.
but in the end i was very happen with headers and the tune.

livernois- BEST shop i have seen, they do more cars, have more people on staff to answer calls, and work. better customer service as you can tell how they are the only ones really on this forum who post and help people out. and that really means something to me. they do ford, GM, dodge. they can pretty much make anything possible. body work, paint, suspension, built engines, they have 3 dynos i believe one is a engine dyno. i feel better investing my car at livernois, because i feel they are here to stay and by the amount of work they do they must be doing something right !
