In the next few weeks I am going to have some work done on my V which i think is going to be over the head of my dealer.

can anyone give me some advise of repairs shops in the Indianapois area that has done good work on V upgrades.

I am planning on the following work.
1) replace brake pads with high performance low dust pads.
2) replace clutch with non-stock unit possible LS7 clutch and flywheel or other aftermarket on similar performance.
3) flush and refill clutch and transmission fluid.
4) it is possible that i am also having syncro problems with the tranny so if they know this transmission i made need some work on it as well.

I have a 2007 LS2 V.

Thanks for any help,
james

Can't help you too much but there are a few people in Indiana who I'm sure could point you in the right direction

with that said, however, unless your local dealer is really incompetent those are all things that I have seen dealers work on (except for tranny problems, you'll likely need a specialist for that)

rlj is in the area and I know he has had some work done at a dealer and that guy is as far from stock as you can get. I remember a story on here from him getting some work done at a dealer and to shave some charged time from the work he took the tech for a ride in his machine a did some accidental dry doughnuts.

Anywho, a free bump for Monday when some Indy/Central Indiana guys to chime in.

Most my work around Indy has been by EPP in Fort Wayne, But also have had Tutwiler Cadillac on North Meridian St. (they did slave cylinder,performance brakes & rotors ect). Only one guy there that does that kinda stuff & I can't remember his name. Carl is the service manager, Just tell him you want the guy that works on Bob Johnson's V, Because thats who I recommended. Or of course you could take it to Fort Wayne (EPP).

samplejs,

rlj speaks the truth. read his sig to get an idea of what he has going on. I think that a cool dealer should be able to do an LS7 clutch swap.

Soon as you get the itch for more intense mods to scratch EPP in Columbus can hook you up with a mini monstOR rlj machine.

Pro Dyno Tech in Crawfordsville, IN will be able to take care of any of your performance needs. They are only about a half out out of Indy and if you want the pads done for free you can come up to Purdue and I can do them for ya only an hour north and great bars!

I have used Tutwiler before in the past and they have always done good work for me. They were the only dealer in Indianapolis able to solve my shutdown stumble! On the other hand I also do most of my own wrenching, if you want to cut some cost and need some help I am willing to lend you a hand on the pads and fluid changes! As for the syncro issue, I would take it by Tutwiler and speak to Jim in service and see what they say, any internal tranny issues should be a warranty issue.
