Any recommended Modern Hemi Shops in AZ?

I'm way down in Sierra Vista, but wanted to see if anyone has recommendations for places in Tucson or Phoenix that are good at tuning, bolt-on's, etc for Challengers. I found a place called Plum Floored Creations up in Phoenix, but haven't seen any real reviews of it. Any help would be appreciated!

PSI in Tucson is supposed to be good for tuning. They have a mustang dyno and have mostly done WRX's, GTR's, and have recently starting doing domestics. I have heard good things about them but havent been able to check them out yet. I spoke with a guy from plum floored creations and he sounded like he definitely knew what he was talking about but he also told me that business is something done on the side. PSI has a facebook page with videos/photos if you wanted to check that out. Unfortunately the dealerships out here in Tucson aren't really knowledgeable when it comes to aftermarket mods even if you're dealing with Mopar stuff. I wish we had a dealership like Steve White in Arizona.

I'll have to check PSI out. Plum Floored does look good but I'd hate to have to drop my car all the way up in Phoenix for everything I need. There does seem to be a lack of shops around here that deal with our cars. And since I'm not confident enough to do more than simple bolt-on's, I'm on the hunt for a good shop.

I'm looking to add shorty's and catless mids, and then possibly a Zex system this summer. I'm pretty sure I could do those mods myself, but would much rather have a shop that's experienced do the work. A cam and SC down the road, and those are way out of my comfort zone.

Very nice...I think PSI would be a good start. I looked at their FB page and they fabricate a lot of their stuff too so I would imagine installing headers and mid pipes wouldn't be too difficult for them. If you end up there please let me know how it works out, I was thinking about putting mine on their dyno to get a baseline since I do want to SC once the kits become available for the 15's. I helped a buddy install headers on a V6 model and I would not want to do that again...couldn't imagine doing it on the hemi with even less room to work with. I live about 10 minutes from that shop maybe I'll swing by on one of my days home from work to see what they say, or we could even meet there maybe if your up for it.

Yeah, I've heard horror stories about header installs on these things. I might try coming up there next weekend and checking the shop out. If I do, I'll give you a heads up first and see if you want to meet there.

I'm staying away from PSI. Yesterday I was quoted $1048.00 to install JBA shorty headers. Couple of shops in PHX quoted 500 & 550.
