cam install in central jersey area

hi, I looking at getting a cam installed on a 4th gen along with everything that goes with that and tuning. wondering if anybody has any suggestions. I was going to call js performance tomorrow. I called rpm rods and customs for a quote and never got a call back, so i will rule them out.

anybody use efx tuning?

I've had not great experiences from cartek in garwood.
tune time performance in toms river didnt respond to me contact

does east coast supercharging do cam installs on 4th gens?

thanks

Paul @ RPM Resto does primarily large scale vehicle restorations and custom work.

Both Dave @ EFX and Josh @ JS Performance do great work. They're cool people to boot

Thanks, not much of a drag racer, just looking for a fun street car. I wonder what the trap speed was on that run.

That is what worries me, if you don't respond to email, what happens when you stop picking up the phone if I have an issue?

Go with whoever makes you the most comfortable. Regarding Tune Time, I agree emails should be received/responded to but it does help to make a phone call. There are many tire kickers so it can be tough to respond to all of them in a timely manner.

Traps 120ish if I remember correctly. And I used TTP, Matt is a great guy and full of knowledge with LS cars, however he is more expensive then some of the other shops. He spec-ed out a cam/converter package for the SS and it runs great. let him know your plan and he will point you in the right direction.

Good evening Brandon, I believe you and Butch were talking about your needs today via email. I know he was working on a quote for you with everything you had mentioned.
