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.

Theres a place in Stony Plain called the Iron Garage. The have new and old school cars in there and sound like they know there stuff. I told them I just want to slowly mod my Zl1 year to year and they suggested KOOK headers and high flow cats to start. Said they would add 40 rwhp and torque and wont need tune. Has anyone heard of them or looked into pipe only mods ?

I spoke to Namala a few times regarding my '12 ZL1 and have complete faith that they will be the shop to install a stage 5 kit on my car in the near future

The stage 5 is listed at 770 HP. Not sure if its rear wheel or flywheel. I'm getting the stage 4 put on my car there in less than a month. It's identical except it doesn't include the ported cylinder heads. I've also got a few other things I'm adding. The stage 4 is listed at 730 HP. I'll let you know what the RWHP is after they are done. It goes in on April 22, Steve said I should have it back by the end of that week. I just hope the weather cooperates, I don't want to have to haul it down there. Steve told me even if I bring it a little early, weather permitting, he would store it inside for me.

My guess is that those numbers are calculated at the crank. So about, 655RWHP for stage 5 and 620RWHP for the stage 4. Those are gonna be awesome upgrades!

I've heard good things about Nitto DR's. Lets face it, anything in a DR is better at the track than the stock street tires.

I'm running M/T ET Streets (DOT tires) on 15inch rims to get more sidewall and therefore more traction. My best 60 on them is a 1.74. In my mind, I should be low 1.6x at the worst. I need more seat time to determine if it's my setup or my skills holding me back...lol.

I think it probably flywheel also. I had my car dyno'd last August, it had only 700KM and it was 27*C outside. It still pulled 475RWHP, 470RWTQ bone stock. I figured my mods should add 150HP to 175HP.
