Weapon x or Vengeance Racing ?

Looking at doing a build on my 2017 zl1. Who would you guys recommend between the two of these. Any good/bad info would be appreciated.

I'm a first time customer of Vengeance Racing this year and I can't say enough good things about them. Before, during and after my build I was extremely impressed with their customer service, knowledge and professionalism. They actually talked me out of spending money on parts and labor that wouldn't have been money well spent. They have a fantastic company they use for shipping that was also first class. My only complaint is I wish they were closer to me. You won't be disappointed!

I live local to Vengeance Racing. And even though I am just recently into a zl1 1le I have been building racing for 20 plus years. I met Ron at Vengeance as I asked him for assistance on a Nascar build years ago. He came to my house with his fabricator free of charge and we talked in depth. Over the years we have become friends. His builds are among the nicest and cleanest in the country. He is a stand up guy and so are his employees. Nothing but good things to say about them from me. That being said Weapon X also has a good reputation but can’t speak from personal experience.

Had my build done at Weapon-X.
Before I pulled the Trigger, we attended 2 dyno days/cruise-ins at Weapon-X, one was during the day, one was at night, both had hundreds upon hundreds of Badass cars. Both were amazing affairs, with people coming from all over the area!
I was able to talk with many of the customers that showed up, and everyone raved about Ben and Blake. When I was there each time, they had cars coming in from all over the Country. When I was there they had cars from Cali, Georgia, and Florida, plus neighboring States.
My build was over 2 weeks....I agreed to allow them to use my car as a test mule for data gathering...they started stock and went thru each and every package, from WX-700 to parts of the WX-900...they dynod each product and package, and gathered all the data. I was informed all the way through!
The car runs beautifully with no issues.
I also have the first production unit of their Boost Freeze Chiller...I can't say enough about that thing, there are no drawbacks to it...it allows the LT4 to shine!
Ben and Blake treat you like family...my son and I have been back 3 more times to visit. Everything that was done to my car had a reason and was done for my final goal.
My end game will be this coming Spring...my car will be going back for a Whipple and Secondary Port Fueling...Then my son and I are heading off on the 25th Anniversary Hot Rod Power Tour Proudly wearing the Weapon-X badge!

Just a few of the hundreds of memories I have, of the August Dyno Night! It was a blast to talk about other builds with customers....the cookout was good also. We were there from 4pm till almost midnight!

My 15' Z/28 had the stg 5 pkg done by VR and it was top notch. Almost 700hp NA and was very happy with the performance. I live within 10 mi of WeaponX and have visited their shop twice, with a walkthrough and an hr long talk with their builders and dyno guy. They also have a top notch shop with many Camaro and Corvette builds. Because I live in the area, I have heard nothing but good about them.

I don't think you can go wrong with either of them.

Seeing as your in Indiana, you can't go wrong with Weapon X. They go above and beyond with their customer service. They do some amazing in house fabrication, and that boost freeze chiller that Intimidator referred to is a piece of art that will keep your IATs COLD.

They have done 2 builds for me and are working on a 3rd right now for me. Looking forward to 950 WHP with my Whipple build.

Either way you're getting some of the best in the business. I chose vengeance due to their thoroughness with builds. Take a pick, you'll be grinning ear to ear afterwords either way, no doubt about it!

They're both excellent. For me it would be whoever is closer. In your case, Weapon-X.
