New Indianapolis Area LSx Shop??

I have heard through a few folks that there may be a new LSx based performance shop opening up in the Indianapolis area and was wondering if there are any shops in Indy to start with. I travel up that way from time to time and do not recall something near the actual city.
It is supposed to be an established shop from out of state either opening a second location or totally relocating. It is supposed to be a full dyno, tuning and install facility.
Of course there is LPE and LMS and a couple others, but they are pretty much up in the northern areas of the state.
So I guess the question would be is there a need in the Indy area for an LSx shop? From what I have looked into it could be a good thing for folks.

Wow, no input at all on this. Not sure if this means there are plenty of shops and none needed or if there are just no 5th Gens in the Indy area. I see a lot of threads with Indy locals so I would think there is some kind of opinion or input here.

Hey All,

Not sure where you got the info or if it was pertaining to myself, but I will be moving my shop from Central Florida to Indianapolis (most likely on the NE side) at the end of the year and most likely just after the first of the year.

I plan on making an announcement here in this section shortly and here is the post related to me leaving FL. Hopefully I can help a few folks out up that way.

If what you heard is related to Mike Norris (who posted above) then it is ALL GOOD. Mike is a great guy and know his $#!t when it comes to LSx's. He comes highly recommended. You guys will be very happy.

speedster, thanks for the kind words to say the least. I will be back in the area from time to time for tuning, so if you need anything just let me know

Hey Ed, sounds good. Whether it is St Elmos and the Claddagh, or if you mean Babes and Brads, it all sounds good

hrpiii, thanks and maybe I will catch you up there the week of Thanksgiving.

Thanks wer2foxs,

I will have to check and see who is still around from when I was there before. One of the guys I used to work with at Blossom Chevrolet was doing most of the paint work for Steve Schmidt's Pro Stock cars.

Thanks to you DirtTrackFan,

Been there before and pretty much ready for January and February up there. Just need to get rid of the two wheel drive Avalanche and look for an AWD.

Seeing your avatar reminds me of another great reason to head to Indy. Looking forward to getting back into a bunch of dirt track and sprint car racing again.

Thanks for the advice Mike. I have had some motor done by them before. I didn't think about the paint work. Hope we can all get something going in Indy and meet when you get settled in! Keep in touch with us.

There is a shop in Castleton called Modifed Auto Design that I personally saw a C5 there and they've put on a new performance exhaust, and other things to it. They have all the latest performance parts for domestic and imports. They're located just behind the Arby's by the Midas Shop and Tire Barn. They're all about performance upgrades and they do have a Dyno on site. They lowered the Honda Element I had with Teins prior to my getting a C5. Their number is 313 202-1860 and the address is 8155 Castleway Ct.W http://www.modifiedautodesigns.com

Hope this helps. Also I'm in the Indy are myself, northeast side and looking for guy/gals who have the C5 interested getting together hanging out when the weather breaks. Maybe mods etc... just throwing it out there. Peace!

keep checking back and follow up on a few threads in this section. We have a good group and I believe we will have a few get togethers when the weather improves.

When Mike gets his shop in full swing, we are talking about getting together over there as a big 'welcome to Indy'.

thanks for the input on Modified Designs. I had found them on the web, but haven't found anyone that had any work done there.

Meet Location in Cincinnati, OH: 3:45 PM
Meeting at the rest area on I-75 southbound in Walton, KY, mile marker 177. It is 15 miles south of Cincinnati on I-75.
Route of Travel: I-75 south. Departing rest area about 4:00 pm Thursday, April 15, stopping in Knoxville, TN for the night.

Come on!! we have taken Thurs off work, cause I believe I will have to be on the road by 12:30- 1p the latest. I may get there a little early, but I DON'T want to be late.

Yes, there are lots of hotels in that area, as stated in one of the C5F post. I do hope you get the details worked out to join, it's going to be a grand event. How can you NOT come.

But we need to get together for lunch one Sat. afternoon... once this weather breaks and it gets back normal temps. My wife just needs more excuses to drive the car.

I guess I will have to go by MAD and see what they are about. I am co-oping with a couple other shops and maybe they would like to do something also.

Definitely up for a get together at the shop when you guys are ready The shop is operational right now with quite a bit of work scheduled in so far. Just a lot of organizing to do which will happen as time moves along.

I am working on my C5F trip and will know more soon.

Just name a date Mike and lets see who can show up when you want us over. We could spread the word on here and a list I have of locals on the C5 site. Looking forward to meeting you and your Co ops. Maybe do a convoy to C5 Fest?

From one shop owner to another, you guy's now have one of the best around...and he understands the inner works of engines unlike to many others. Put your trust in him, you won't be disapointed.
