    Anyone have a SRT/Hellcat focused performance shop in Houston they would recommend? You can PM me with name and experience as I am sure moderators don't want unpaid promotions on here. I would really appreciate any recommendations. Hard to know who to trust anymore.

    Whitehead motorsports in Tomball has been advertising an upgrade to the ECU and pulley that they say can pack on another 100 HP. I have no experience with them, however. Would love to give it a try but afraid my warranty will be voided.

    Cody @ Whitehead does some pretty decent work with the Hellcats. His Stage 1 package is fairly reasonable at $1625 installed for a lower pulley, 180 thermostat, cracked PCM and custom tune.

    I had some work completed at Whitehead Motorsports as well, very happy with the way they treated my car and the results. They are a class act.

    Wow you guys dug this up from a few months back! lol Took the car to Peitz Performance Tunes last week. Alex and the crew are done and I am picking up today. Thanks for the replies though.

    White Trash - Alex was supposed to tune that car. I get the inside scoop. It's has issues and not ready.

    So is there a list of shops with verifiable good reputations doing great work on Hellcats in Houston? I would also like PM's if no one is willing to talk publicly about Houston shops.

    I used Serious HP in Houston Great costumer serviced. They have done over 30+ hellcats, they know what they are doing. Do not go with just anyone it will get $$$ fast and your tune will suck.

    Considering shops in Houston for packages once I get my HC, it's been almost a year since you 2 guys posted about the work you had done at Whitehead and Pietz, & few months since the Serious HP was posted about.

    Curious if you guys have anything else to add about these shops and their work done now that you have some mileage and time on their installs. Any issues or problems arise since then? My buddy is considering the Stage 2 for his 2016 Challenger HC M6 and me as well once I get my 2017 Charger HC. Any other input is also appreciated.

    Haven't heard much about Fastlane issues, but have heard tons of bad stuff about Hennessy. Sorry to dig up an old post but figured it better than starting a new one. Thanks in advance.

    Hey. I have put just over 3,500 miles and 3 trips to the track. No issues from Serious HP work or tune. I took my car to them to fix 1st tuner mistakes which had issues come up from that. Like the fore fuel system steel braided hose cut a whole in A/C line and a fuel fitting leaked because it was at an angle. A/C fix was about $750. Repair. Only thing I had to add was a bwoody anti slip pulley because supercharger was slipping. I went to the track Friday car cannot put the power down with 315/35/20 drag radails. Only ran 11.0 sec but was 137.7mph. Power is strong!
    I would say they know what they are doing. 947whp 897wtq

    If you don't mind posting who's work they fixed so others can avoid them, please do, if not I understand. Thank you for posting, I'll have to look Serious up and see what all they offer.
