    Karn's automotive in Groton CT. They do all of the submariners cars, who are car fanatics. A dirty little shop, but that's because they have very slim operating margins. The guys really know their stuff and they're honest to a fault.

    Failing that, pay me (or a CTS-V owner nearer to you) to install them.

    I have heard good things about Corvette Doctor in Long Island. I take may car only to one Cadillac Dealer if I need anything and that is Sarant Cadillac. The guy there recommended Corvette Doctor when I asked about doing performance mods. He said that the owner actually used to work at this dealership for some time before he started his business. On top of that, if you youtube around, these guys built the fastest CTS-V. I have never been there but thats where I will go if I need anything done. Im sure they know the vehicle in and out. Hope this helps and let me know if you wind up going there and your experience. Good luck.

    When I had a '07 V, I used 'East Coast Supercharging' in Cream Ridge, NJ

    Excellent work and even my wife commented that the car "felt & ran smoother"
    I was speechless, because she seldom recognizes "almost nothing"

    I have also heard good thing about 'The Vette Doctors' in Long Island, NY.

    corvette docs... HA wanted 3500 to do a cam install... Im not gonna say where I went because I don't recommend him. (for reasons besides the install/tune, which went fine, I was sold bad tires that blew up and he refuses to help me)

    I have spoken with several tuners on the phone when I was gonna do the cam install and my favorite guy was Matt from TTP

    +1 on Tune Time Performance In south Nj, hear nothing but good things and they constantly have V2s on their Fb page

    or

    Broadway Performance in Passaic Nj.. has done some work for me before. great place to go and hang out as well, John always has exotics in the shop. Broadway had a contract with Gotham Dream Car club to do all their service work.

    +1 more on Tune Time. I just got my tune done there in Sept. Headers, no cats, cutouts. Mustang Dyno. I didn't have the headers installed by them though. Just the tune.

    Without a doubt Tunetime, Matt did my motor( stock bottom, worked ls3 heads, stock tb and l76 intake, custom grind mild cam) and put 465 rwhp and drives with stock like manners.... Even my wife drives it. He also tuned my car stock with exhaust.... Even that was night and day difference

    372/361 on a stingy mustang dyno. Rather it be stingy then generous though. I don't want to see 390+whp on just a K&N. I'd like numbers I can believe. You can take the numbers you get at TuneTime with a smile because you know they are LEGIT numbers. Not inflated.

    I have only exhaust work and the FFV tubing on stock airbox. Headers, cat delete, stock exhaust plumbing with resonator and mufflers with cutouts before mufflers. Not too shabby for 130,200 miles at the time.
