Texas performance shops

I'm looking for a good/creditable performance shop in TX (S.A-Dallas-Houston) area. I'm finally going to start modding. Any suggestions?!?

If you are looking for an oracle dealer for lighting might want to look up Scorpion CustomZ/Bevil Automotive. Ask for Craig. He does such things as lighting and Lambo doors. He has an account with AAC and can get any type of lighting products. Great pricing.

Bevil auto has a car show coming up at the end of the month might want to attend and check out some of his work. My car will be there.

If you want mods such as cosmetics and in San Antonio look up lupe!!

On mods and budget depends on what you want to do. I just did headers, exhaust and tune along with CAI and gearing and car sounds and drives amazing. It was a night and day difference. All this was done at ADM in one day. Cost was around the $4000 range out the door.

Cosmetics mods vary but could do a lot for 1000...one of the best dramatic things I did was get and slp splitter around $300 then the zl1 sides and then a high wing spoiler. To purchase paint and install less than 2000 and makes car look way different. Then you could do halos and side markers. Sky is the limit just depends on what you want to do.
you could do heritage front grill also

Give you an idea of what all that looks like

Ya there's lots of places to go for performance mods. I am ADM Performance biased as sell I had my work done there. There some good shops in SATX too. I've heard good things out of lethal performance in SA. as far as cosmetics I saw Lupe's work at TCR his shop is river city customs i think and man its good.

If I got a cam and a full exhuast, would that void my warranty?

probably due to the cam swap, but headers to the tips should be cool. I guess it also depends on your dealer

ADM Performance is where i take my car. LG Motorsports and Lethal is good. I have seen some great work from both of them as well. LG builds some of the meanest vetts i've ever seen.

SNL Performance in north Ft Worth has done 95% of my car, and there is not that hasn't been changed. They are also the MOnster Clutch company.

Next up is a custom fabricated twin turbo system for about 1100rwhp.

Ok. been shopping around, went to and called a few different places that were suggested to me. For a full exhaust/intake and tune at one shop is damn near 5k. Another shop for full exhaust new wires and thermostat is 3.6 k. Does this sound about right to you guys?

Stay the hell away from LoneStar Performance in Carrollton. Their installs cost me a ton of money when the problems arose. Still dealing with one of them.
