Folks,

Every once in a while an owner reaches out to me for a recommendation of a good shop for service.... unfortunately not many of us are close to CT or Callaway.

I thought that I would start a thread of recommended or at least good service experiences we have had with our Twin Turbo Corvettes out of the good hands of Callaway Cars in case that future owners are in need of local service.

Back from 2001-2003 I lived in the Miami area and my Twin Turbo was services by Malik Motors (Barry Malik - a Corvette specialist), 5869 Progress Rd, South Miami, Fl. Tel 305-668-6696

Any other recommendations around the nation, please chime in!!!

-Luigi

Ive had work done at two shops in Orlando.

Mike Norris Motorsports and Next Level Performance. I iniatally went to Norris Motorsports when then merged with Geoff Skorupa and started Next Level Performance. Both shops did work on my b2k and it was first class.

in South Florida, "Casey" at Ed Morse Chevrolet is the man. He has done a terrific job on 5 different CTTCs and 2 C-Superchargers. Highly recommended. :thumbs

In the Tidewater, Virginia area, Ed Hutchings (formerly of the Horsepower Factory) is now @ Virginia Speed

Ed worked wonders with a modified CTTC and has worked with other Callaway Corvettes as well. Super knowledgeable guy, patient, and polite.

For Wheel refinishing (including Dymag Magnesium wheels on Callaway Twin Turbo Corvettes) other COG members swear by this place:
Ye Olde Wheel Shop
6363 Washington Blvd.
Elkridge, Md 21227

tel# 800.526.8260 6363 or 410.796.8400

They don't have a website (as of 12/2009)

Luigi:

I am attaching proof of the service from Ye Olde Wheel. When you contact them, talk to John and nobody else. He is extremely knowledgable and capable. He hand sands each wheel after removing much of the finish with blasting. He hand applies stripper to the engraving of the DYMAG and CALLAWAY. He asks that you send the cover so as he strips, and then applies sealer, paint and coat he can check the clearance so it will cover the lugs and fit snug. They box and ship very securely, you will see the rim/bead cover in one picture. They conduct a run out report and send it along. I recommend them, they are not cheap but their quality is top notch and with having wheels running above $1,500 when you can find them, it is well worth it to keep them in top condition.

Hello Luigi,

Would you happen to have any information on an approved B2K mechanic in Southern California?

Hello BigJohn, I appreciate the info. I thought they didn't do servicing, but I must be mixed up with the Corona Ca. Office. I appreciate the help.
