Default LS shops in SF Bay Area

Hello all,

I been lurking for some time now and this is my first post. I have a 69 camaro, G bar rear coilover setup, G street front coilover setup, t56 magnum, built 10 bolt, stock 350 engine looking to swap to an LS platform within the next month. Can someone please point me in the right direction of a knowledgeable shop in the SF bay area that can perform the swap and tune?

Thanks again guys

Meanstreets Performance Fabrication in Gilroy is excellent and is a Lateral G sponsor.

Sounds like good ol' Steve from West Coast Muffler . He did a single 3" exhaust on my Buick GN turbo V6 powered Mazda FC RX-7 in 1997 haha. My commuter car that ran mid 11's with a stock GN turbo.

Advanced Auto Electric (AAE) does LS swaps, Coyote swaps, etc as part of their main gig including T56 magnum swaps, supercharger/turbo setups, gear/axle/LSD swaps, complete wiring, a/c, engine builds etc. Their shop is next door to mine in San Ramon, CA! Ask for Daniel.... they get sh*t done!

Yup, Steve and his main tech Jerry are awesome. To save some money and so I could get my hands dirty (some time away from working at a computer all day) he let me help him install the ride tech coil-over swap on my Camaro.
