Thanks for the kind praises guys, - we have done over a dozen CTS-V's with various combinations. We just finished a ZL1 before X-mas and have another coming next week for our full stage 5.

I also purchased a brand new ZL1 a week ago and plan on doing more R-D on our various stage packages, and trying out a couple different Camshafts.

In the end, I will not compomise reliability and drivability for a few extra ponies, the trade off is not worth it.

Steve

I checked a few shops around Edmonton where I live because I didn't want to take my car to far. But after talking to quite a few car guys and checking out their website and talking to Steve at Davenport I decided it was the only way to go. My car has an appointment on April 22 for a ZL1 730HP package. I can't wait!!!!

Thanks. I've got a few other mods they are going to install at the same time.
LS7 throttle body
Lingenfelter intercooler reservoir
Cooler logic heat exchanger
I also bought a set of nitto nt05r drag radials ( 315/35R20). I was trying to get 2 factory rear black rims but gm has them on constraint. If I can't get them by May I'll have to take off my street tires. Shouldn't be to many mustangs getting by me at castrol this year!!

I only do my own work. Only thing I might get done is a clutch somewhere as I won't have any tools to do it soon. But I'm still weary if letting a shop do that:(

I could do all my own work to. I'm a heavy duty mechanic by trade. When I get time off the last thing I want to do is look at any tools!! I doubt a dentist goes in on Sunday to do his own root canal. Besides I'm having the camshaft and valve springs changed and require special tooling. It's not just any shop, check out their website. I'm very particular and from what I've heard and seen i trust them completely. I want all the mods done at the same time so it only has to be tuned once.

That's interesting because I'm a het as well, and love wrenching on my car on days off. Or even on work days before night shifts. I even just finished a cam install and springs haha! now a supercharger! Plus davenports a fair bit f a drive for me to go to, as I think they would be the only ones I'd want to do the clutch if I don't do it myself. If you do decide to do it yourself I have a very slick valve spring compressor for the ls3 to do with heads on.

Notice I said not to many mustangs and didn't say no mustangs. I was thinking about your car when I said that. LOL. Should be a lot of fun. I took your advise and just went with the cat deletes.

Like I say to each their own I guess, after 24 days straight of work that's the last thing I want to do for my four days off. I've got the cash I'll just let them do it and enjoy my days off. Are you close to Edmonton? Do you take your car to the track? BTW I have a set of valve spring compressors, but they're for a CAT 3500 series engine LOL

LOL The only track we have around here is Franklin Avenue during rush hour. Lots of swerving then.
