competent, Experienced Speed Shop in Florida

I have always been a DIY guy but with these new engines I am going to step aside and have a speed shop with experience working on these LS motors handle the mods on my ZL1. Can someone recommend a speed shop that has experience working on Z's in the Central Florida area? I will want to check references and experience working on Z's is a MUST!! I am looking to get 100hp or so more out of it so I am not looking to rebuild the car but get out of it what I know is already there.

It may be worth your time to drive down and check out Redline motorsports....you could say they are somewhat familiar with the ZL1

Brothers Performance in Sanford has great connections with many speed shops in the area. They are mostly a Ford shop, but work closely with several companies that are affilated with SCT, Hypertec and so forth.

I'm not sure if Norris Motorsports is still operating in Winter Garden or not.

The address on their site is in Indianapolis, but the phone number has a 407 area code. He was THE guy to go to in this area a while back.

None in FL that I could recommend the only two shops I would are

Vengeance Racing in Cumming, GA (just outside of Atlanta) these guys built ALL of the GMMG cars and they have done a ton of 5th gens.

The other shop is Hennessey over in Texas my buddy has had Hennessey work on both of his 5th Gens one of the a ZL1 HPE 700 pkg.

These are the only 2 shops I would ever use for my cars.

So Hennessey evidently has a dealer network they use to install their mods, One of those places is called Monster Motorsports in Davie, Fl. Has anyone heard of them or can give a recommendation for/against using them?

My understanding Hennessey is rather picky on who they allow to be an authorized dealer/installer you might want to reach out to James @ Hennessey he is on the forum under Sales@Hennessey and ask him I am sure he can give you some info.

I have been to both shops and both Redline and Torq can handle whatever your speed needs are.
