KATECH ZL1 upgrade

Anyone ever use or hear about these guys? They are from Metro Detroit, would be real easy to have them do a few upgrades for me.

From what I understand they're the ones that build the C6.R Corvette engines. Doesn't get much better than that when it comes to reliability.

My buddy was ther for his ZO6 on Friday and he said they seem like they know what they are doing and run a very nice operation. I beleive that Vector Motorsports who is located accross the street from them does all their tuning.

And for those in the area of T & T Performance should see TIM for your Camaro upgrades; he lives and breathes all things Camaro and done 90% of the power upgrades on Veteran1

They are one of the most respected LS engine builders in the world. They build GMs race engines.

I have used Vector for my Trailblazer SS. For anything tuning related, I give them 2 thumbs up.

To the OP, as far as Katech, never used them personally, but have only heard good things about them.

My dad works at Katech and absolutely loves working there. As a whole, Katech is very passionate about what they do. As everyone else has said they're highly respected in the Corvette community and IMHO if they're able to garner such respect from Corvette owners and GM itself then it speaks volumes for their quality of business.
