RE: Solstice HHR Stage Kit 19212670

  Thanks Tom.

  Got it installed today... OMG.


Thanks for your follow-up and positive comments. As I mentioned, I had ordered
  this from another vendor and could not get them to even give me any idea of
  when it would come... You made the extra effort to help me understand when it
  would be here...


Great Job.. I'm sending other folks your way as I can...









  We bought the 19212670HK (Stage 1 kit with harness for Cobalt SS Turbo) from
  Crate Engine Depot in early afternoon and it was shipped the same day! Two days
  later, a 2 hour quoted job took barely an hour thanks to the harness kit. The
  GM technician at East Syracuse Chevrolet loved it and even talked to us after
  the install and said he was very impressed and asked where we bought it. They
  had done many Stage 1 installs before but never with the kit. He was surprised
  to hear about the low cost as well. Needless to say we're very happy campers.
  Loving it!

My car is a 1968 Camaro, equipped with a 406ci small block Chevy, and Turbo
  400 trans. The car was brought to its current condition about 7 years ago using
  only original GM Parts. It currently runs in the mid 11 second bracket with
  the nitrous still unused at the track.


Thanks to all the guys at who helped me get the factory
  and performance parts I needed to build the car the way I wanted it.

  Thanks for your help. Bob O.











"Old Chevy's never die. They just get Bigger and Better" or so Matt
  of McHenry, Illinois says about his 1989 full size Silverado Blazer.


Under the hood lies a Chevy crate 330 HP engine from of
  Arlington Heights, Illinois. There are a number of upgrades that Matt has installed
  on this engine from a upgraded TBI spacer, high output coil, 8mm Taylor wires,
  160 amp alternator, dual Optima batteries, Flow Tech shorty headers flowing
  into a 2 1/2 inch pipe to two Hight Flo catalytic converters then out through
  Flowmaster two chamber mufflers.

  In order to fit 36x14.5x15 Mickey Thompson Baha's on 15x14 Bart beadlock wheels,
  the suspension was custom made using 12" front and rear leaf springs from
  AB springs, Grand Rapids, Mi. On each corner there is a Sky Jacker shock and
  dual steering stabilizer. To accommodate the correct pinion angle, the Chevy
  10, front axle was cut and trued. Inside the 411 Yukon spool. The rear axle
  is also a Chevy 10 bolt, cut and trued with Detroit Truetrac from Randy Ring
  and Pinion, CA. For additional support, trusses were added to each axle from
  Go Rhino.


Of course every trucker has to have an awesome stereo system and Matt has installed
  a 1,000 watt Kenwood sound system with 10 speakers. You can definitely hear
  this Chevy coming. The only other interior changes are an Autometer tach, 3'
  tube roll bar and trail ready gear.


The custom paint job was done by Crash One of Crystal Lake, Illinois. Exterior
  accessories include a steel cowl hood, front pre-runner bar and two 8"
  and 5" trail lights from Pro Comp, a Trailblazer 17 light bar on top and
  a Lund visor. For the summer months, Matt takes the fiberglass top off and goes
  topless or when the weather goes foul, he uses a custom made soft top courtesy
  of Richmond Canvas, Richmond Illinois.


Notice the license plates, "PIGGY BK". That says it all. Matt has
  certainly broken his piggy bank customizing this Chevy.

  Special thanks goes to friend, Bret, for all his help and patience.










"2001 Corvette C5 Viper Hunter"


No Supercharger, no turbocharger, no nitrous, just stock tires, and an old
  driver still turned 11.71 and 116.65 MPH at Spring Grove.


New heads, camshaft, air intake, and CORSA Performance exhaust system. 13 front
  rotors, 12 rear rotors, and a Z06 clutch. All engineered and installed by the
  Performance Experts of


Zero service incidents of any kind since rebuild. Not one drop of oil on the
  engine or on the ground. The new brakes saved me from a collision 2 weeks after
  their installation. While I was only going 35MPH another vehicle turned left
  in front of me from the right hand lane and I was 15 feet from the car and still
  stopped in time to avoid the collision. Braking in the car can only be described
  as unbelievable.

  I recommend the Performance Experts of CrateEngineDepot to anyone wanting the
  highest quality workmanship and results when seeking added performance in their
  vehicle. If you want good old fashioned service and quality the Performance
  Experts of CrateEngineDepot will exceed you expectations.

1967 Camaro 350/290 HP with a 5 speed


I am a previous Auto Technician with over 15 years experience (back in the
  70s/ 80s). I planned to replace my new 350 engine myself which I had purchased
  from CrateEngineDepot. It involved installing a new 5 speed Tremic Transmission
  kit. This was interesting because it was going into my 1967 camaro super sport


However, after meeting your technicians and service writing staff it was clear
  to me I didn't have to do it myself, these guys are car nuts too. I couldn't
  do a better job myself, I am very happy with the decision to save my winter
  in the garage. Please tell Frank my technician Mike the service writer and can't
  forget Joe in parts for his magic THANK YOU! This is an incredible team you
