Chad Barton at CBI just completed my build. It is a 427 LSX iron block with an IPS twin turbo kit. He is in St. Louis, does great work, is always willing to help, easy to talk to, and is easy on the wallet too! I had used Chad for years and I have always been impressed and happy with the results. If you would like you can PM me and you can see his work first hand.

As for tuning, none other than Dave Steck with DSX tuning. Once again I have used him for na and FI setups and he has been great. He used his own cars as guine pigs and now has a great understanding of what going on. There have been times where he tries to explain what he is Doing or what's going on but I just couldn't follow. Many of the local shops that would get larger builds or high dollar builds call him for the tune. He is that good and local!

Dave Steck - 314-322-3283
Chad Barton - 314-952-9883

Call either one and they are more than willing to help out.

I agree with this! Dave has tuned My car and it is totally different now!

It will light them up and scratch all the way thru 4th It now feels like it should have from the factory!

As far as Chad, He is scheduled to do My car if the dang parts would ever come in :( but from what I've heard and seen with My own eyes I would highly recommend this duo!

I would have to highly recomend:
Dsteck for tuning 1 314-322-3283 and
CBI for build 314-952-9883

These guys are extremely good at what they do. And have multiple Camaros over 600+ rwhp on stock botom end easily. And if you want the most out of your build CBI is the way to go with his builds and dsteck's tunes having less than 700 rwhp is an after thought. I trust these guys a ton always been great to work with and very knowledgeable. My camaro is about as mild as you can go with these guys yet its still over 600 rwhp. Even if you're uncertian which way you wanna go they can help you figure it out and reach whatever goal you have.
