Default Looking for a HEMI mechanic/shop in Central FL

First, let me state that I am no mechanic and just have the basics when it comes to tools. When I start to look into doing mods, I will need a reputable RAM/HEMI shop to do the work as I don't want to use any dealer shops plus I don't think they would install anything not factory - especially when the truck is new and still under warrenty.

Anyone know of a shop here in the Orlando/Central FL region that they can reccommend?

I would love to put in a RIPP SC system as I sold my 03 Corvette that had a ProCharger in it and just loved the performance.

Thanks for any help

Whoever did the vette' should have no problem with your truck and the Ripp S/C. Working on a vette is much harder than a Ram.

Well, I haven't asked them yet as they are a Corvette shop, aptly named "Corvette Masters" that only work on Vette's and GM muscle cars. I have never seen any other make there and doubt they would take this on.

Can't hurt to ask. If they like making money and keeping return customers happy, they should do it. Installing the Ripp system does not look hard at all, the intercooler is probably the most labor intesive part. If you can follow instructions and turn a wrench, you should be able to knock it out. The hard part is the tuning and I do believe they offer a good base tune with it. Good luck with it, let us know how it turns out. I used to live down in Sarasota, I know there is a lot of high end cars running around. But I have seen some nasty street trucks, usually diesels. Try hooking up with some of those guys. Maybe they can point you to a good shop.

Honestly boss all you really need are metric sockets if I am not mistaken. What i normally do when it comes to doing stuff that I am not the most familiar with is go on youtube and usually there is a video for anything. For example intalling a K&N - there is a video for that so go watch the vid and then do it yourself. Def helps to have it for reference. Goodluck!

^^X2, I'd do the Ripp system myself, one weekend and plenty of beer on hand!

Appreciate the replys but I'm no mechanic and wouldn't even think of attempting this. I have both a limited set of tools and patience

When/if I do decide to spend $$ for a supercharger (either a RIPP sys or a Procharger), I may have to go back to my Corvette shop to see if they would take this on. In the mean time, still looking for a reputable HEMI shop in the Orlando/Daytona Beach area that can do minor mods for me.

Post a "Help wanted" ad in our BST forum. I'm sure somebody close to you might take it on if the vette shop let's you down.
