Midway Chevrolet Performance Center - New Camaro5 Sponsor

Recently I was having a conversation with a local Camaro owner here at the dealership on the availability of performance parts and speed shops in the Phoenix metro area that specialized in the 5th Gen Camaros. He was under the impression that what we sold in our Performance Center was only for sale if we installed it and was limited to only the GM Performance Parts. Being a DIYer he had not even considered Midway Performance for his aftermarket parts needs.

After speaking to him, I brought up the subject up with some of the upper management here at Midway Chevrolet, that we don’t promote the Performance Center. We have been in business since 1966 and have had a Performance Center for a long time, when I inquired about how long, nobody knew for sure, even our 30+ year employees said, we’ve always had a Performance and Accessories Center. There are a lot of Camaro’s, Corvette’s, trucks and SUV’s that Midway Performance has built over the years running around the streets of Phoenix and its surrounding area. Yet very few people know about it. This is our first time on Camaro5, I am Rick Andrade, a long time Camaro owner, enthusiast and forum member. Matt Green and I currently run the Performance and Accessories Center. I have over 30 years and Matt has over 12 years of GM Performance experience. We wanted to introduce ourselves to the Camaro5 Forum and let you know if anyone is looking for something, give us a shot, we’re very competitive.

Not only do we carry a full line of GM Performance Parts but we carry many Brand name Aftermarket Performance parts as well. Here at Midway Chevrolet’s Performance Center we can build you the Camaro you have always wanted or we can sell you the parts for you to build it yourself. We offer Custom Tuning as well.

We carry a great deal of aftermarket manufactures here at Midway Performance Center and while I may not stock everything by these Manufactures I can certainly order it for you at very competitive prices. Being the Largest Chevrolet dealership on the West Coast we also offer nationwide shipping. So whether you’re here in Arizona or elsewhere in the great United States, we can get you the parts you want shipped directly to you.
Here is a list of the most popular Manufactures we are direct with:

Magnuson Superchargers

Hi Rick!! So glad to see you're on here. I'll be getting in touch with you as soon as I get my bonus. I want to get the strut tower brace for my '10 and want to do some upgrades on my '01 Z28.

Hi Rick, What is the cost for tuning 2014 1LE with a Roto Fab CAI and Kooks 1 7/8th headers?

Buy an SCT x4 from Steve at RDP and he'll send you a custom tune for your mods. Then you'll also own the handheld if you get any more mods and need to re-tune (or return to stock)

Ricks no longer with Midway and their Performance Center is pretty much just accessories now. They sublet there Performance work to J&R Performance now. The guy at Midway is clueless, he called over to J&R several times to answer my questions, I decided to go direct after that. I took my 1LE to them for a cam, supercharger and a few other things. Extremely happy with the results, they have a spotless shop, Kyle the lead tech and fabricator does really clean work and they do all there tuning in-house. My car drives like stock except with a lot more power. It took my wife a few weeks to realize I did more than just headers. First time she really got on it, I got a phone call, Oops I forget to tell you it has more power I told her, .

I would goto to CPR or contact Nic D directly for a tune. He is by FAR the best LS tuner in the state (that you can get to do your car).

I got a quote from CPR and others before I did my work, slightly better price but after doing my research I felt like J&R does better quality work. I can honestly say they exceeded my expectations. Nic D is good, but I was looking for something better. I've had a nightmare car before and this time I spent a lot of time going to shops and talking to people with modded cars and finding out who was doing the best work. The worst I heard anywhere about J&R was they're more expensive. Everyone who has had work done there had great things to say about them. Loud Pedal was the only other shop that I didn't hear any negative feedback on and they are gone.

CPR is the only shop (besides Top Gear) that I see cranking out cars that consistently perform. Go out to wild horse, go out to the 1/2 mile events, and it is dominated by CPR built cars. I haven't seen anyone else crank out 900+hp cars that are reliable time and time again.

From what I've seen and heard about J&R, you couldn't pay me to take my car there. So I guess it all depends on who you talk to.

The work they did for me is top notch, even got compliments at the dealer on how nice the install is when I took it in for warranty work. They sure do work on a lot of Camaros, I talked to at least 20 different Camaro owners before I chose, I have no regrets.
