Hello everyone I'm in need of a reliable and well priced machenic near Elgin IL. Hope someone can recommend I'd greatly appreciate it. This weekend my 08 Avalanche went down. Loud lifter noise and almost no oil pressure. Looking to do GEN IV GM Truck DOD & VVT Kit w/ Texas Speed Truck Cam Kit - Choose Cam Stage 2.

I do not have a reference in your part of Illinois, but I would suggest at least talking to some of the performance shops in your area. They've undoubtedly performed more than their fair share of LS based cam/lifter swaps. A quick google search led me to this shop

Total Power INC.
1489 West Bartlett Rd
Elgin, IL 60120
1-630-377-6937

On a side note, that Texas Speed DOD delete & stage 2 cam is exactly what I want to install.. But I just can't justify it until I have lifter trouble... So I'll be excitedly following your threads! Please post back with results and who you ended up using.

Thanks for the info. I'm currently doing some research for near by shops. Will keep you updated on the progress.
