Who should do my Mods?

Im looking to let one of these shops have at my ZL1. My mods will be billet 10% od pulley-ati damper -CAI-2.55 supercharger pulley w\solid isolator coupling-160 tstat-injectors-oil catch can-high capacity intercooler coolant reservoir -And the obvious would be a custom shop Tune.
Just wondering what you guys thoughts are?
The perspective shops right now are Livernois, Nickey-Chicago, and Modern Muscle
Also was wondering opinions on the Nickey serialized car premium value. Is it worth the $ Is there a good possibility on return value.

Thanks guys.

Livernois is a great choice they do quality work. For my money I would call Finish Line Performance in Naperville IL and insist that Dan Bills tune your car.

" return value" is how you perceive it, if you sell the car, then no, but for permagrin, yes...

Thank you for your recommendation! We definitely have everything at our disposal to make your ZL1 build something you are happy with. We have everything from the most basic, to most elaborate builds available for these cars, which has made us the #1 center for these cars in the region. At any given time in our shop there are almost as many ZL1's as regular camaro's, and if you have visited our shop, or seen pictures, you know that means there are numerous, not just 1 or 2. We increase the performance on more zl1's in a 2 week period than most dealerships sell in an entire year

I had a great experience with my car at Nickey. Stefano and Beth were great to work with and went above and beyond. Cory is an excellent tuner and will get you power along with reliability which was very important to me. There is nothing like the sound of a Nickey ZL1 screaming down the road!!!
