A good place to get a Cam or magnacharger installed.

Hello,
I'm thinking of getting a cam or a magnacharger, where would be a good place to get it installed and the car tuned in northern Colorado. Any suggestions are welcome.
It would either be a vms 1.5 cam or a magnacharger tvs1900, still haven't decided.

Thanks for the help.

Wish I could be of assistance but not much to offer on a good shop in your area.

But really, seriously....are you having trouble choosing the Maggie over that wanna be cam package? Thats a no brainer!

I'm sure the monetary difference is causing the dilemma

You can choose to be anything you want on the internet...why choose to be so stupid!

Its the money factor between the cam and the blower that's making it hard to choose.

my cam pulls 450hp, is a little "lumpy" but is a great dd. I do have a yank 3200 ss verter though. Together I have about 3500 into this setup.
