MS1 "friendly" dealers in the Midwest (Kentucky)

Hi all,

I am getting MS1 soon, however I want to settle some of my concerns before I do. Can anyone in or near Kentucky recommend a good "stage 1 friendly" dealer? The last thing that I want is some grief about warranty/service, or some ignorant tech that doesn't know his product...

Any input is appreciated.

If you don't mind the drive....Champion Dodge in Indianapolis IN (West 96th Street)..Owner owns a Viper and a couple of SRT vehicles...They even have a MS1 equipped CSRT for sale....It'll cost you about $95.00.

Both of those places are well within reach. Did they give you guys any grief over warranty during the install?

Thanks for the input

No grief at all, I talked directly to the mechanic, he did it at 5pm right before leaving, took about 10 minutes. I'll get you some contact info if you want.

None at all.....They've installed the MOPAR strut bar for me..They know that my car is modified,and they have no problem with honoring the warranty...They're the ones that installed the MS1 on the CSRT that they have for sale.They even handed me back my stock ECM.

The "void warranty" thing is mostly C.Y.A ruling to cover some idiot getting mods,damaging the engine and then taking the car back claming that the mod(s) that the dealer installed messed up his engine.

If you decide to take your car up there,just say that "Brian with the silver CSRT sent you".

Awesome. I'm living in Columbus, IN. during the week (on an internship), so Indi is pretty close.

Thanks again for the guidance
