ADS is located at 6835 W Chandler Blvd, Chandler, AZ 85226, right off the I-10 on the south-side of W Chandler Blvd. Our shop hours are Mon-Fri, 7:30AM to 5:30PM.
The best way to pull in more air than the atmospheric pressure will allow is with forced induction. The best 2 ways you can add forced induction to your vehicle is with turbochargers and superchargers.
The main differences between the 2 are that; a supercharger is driven by the engine’s crankshaft (uses engine power to run) and a turbocharger works by using an exhaust gas turbine (uses wasted engine energy to run).
ADS can help with turbocharger installation, supercharger installation and turbo rebuilds.
Installing a turbocharger will increase your vehicle’s performance. It will also give you higher speeds and faster acceleration times as well. At ADS, we have year of experience with turbocharger installation. Not only can we install your turbo but we also offer custom tuning services to ensure your turbo is calibrated to your engine correctly.
Looking for to upgrade your vehicle’s performance by installing a supercharger? A blower/supercharger uses forced air to increase your torque and horsepower! It mounts to the top of the motor and will force cold air into the motor to increase performance.
Our supercharger specialists will install your supercharger professional while ensuring every nut and bolt is factory tight. We will even provide custom tuning to ensure your motor is calibrated perfectly with your new supercharger.

Turbocharger or Supercharger – What’s the difference?
Superchargers and turbochargers force additional air into the engine to increase performance. The differences between turbochargers and superchargers lie within the method they use to do the job.
A turbocharger is driven by exhaust gas pressure as the engine runs, whereas a supercharger is driven by the engines internal rotating assembly via a belt. It is well-known throughout the performance community that any load added to the engines rotating assembly (ie: alternator, power steering pump, etc.) will reduce horsepower. This means that the supercharger will have to overcome a loss in performance before any gains are realized. A turbocharger does not add any load to the engine, which means all performance increases will be realized 100%.
Superchargers may reduce some of the horsepower but add so much more on top of it that all you will know is a monument of horsepower under your hood. One of the major advantages to superchargers over turbos is that they do not have turbo lag. Turbo lag is caused by the time a turbocharger needs to spool up correctly from the exhaust pushing the turbine. This can me a lag off the line.
NOS Systems Installation
A Nitrous Oxide System (NOS) is an affordable way to add on-demand horsepower at the push of a button. Imagine flipping the switch to deliver an extra 150-horsepower to your motor! The professionals at ADS can instruct you on the benefits of each system, so you can make the best choice for your high-performance application. Professional installation of NOS systems is absolutely critical to the performance of the system, and the safety of your vehicle. Improper installation can lead to leaks and backwash into the intake system. This can mean a simple spark can ignite the nitrous oxide. ADS does professional and safe installation of NOS so you never have to worry about these problems. Trust the experts and don’t let your buddy convince you that he is either fast or furious.
Reviews & Testimonials
I had a broken steel muffler hanger, after going to 3 different shops that turned me away because they were too busy, even though most had empty racks. Called this shop and they were nice, bring it in we will take a look. Well Cody crawled under the truck, hot pavement and all and told me yeah we can fix this better than the original, great I thought, was waiting for the but not till…to my surprise they took it in repaired and adjust tips in, about 40 minutes. Price was very reasonable. Great work, I will be back in the future, exceptionally clean and orderly shop.
Excellent service, honest staff, and technicians were able to quickly figure out my truck’s issues. Highly recommended for complex repairs. The hourly rate is $124, a bit high compared to some shops, but it will save you money in the long run finding and fixing the actual issue. The service writer Tim did not try to sell me anything I didn’t need, and he was knowledgeable about the repair when I asked what needed to get done.
I had an outstanding experience with ADS. Went to the shop for them to service my air conditioner on a 2014 Chrysler 300. After taking the car back in the shop, they realize that the air conditioning unit was a new type of air conditioning unit in newer cars and they weren’t equipped to service it. They share with me, their plans were to purchase that type of servicing equipment in 2018 for that summer. So they initially sent me to the dealership, saying that they wouldn’t be able to service the car…
I have been taking my vehicles to ADS for years and I absolutely LOVE their work and customer service. I know I can fully trust their word & the work they do. I’m not the most car savvy; so it is such a relief to have found people who I completely trust with my vehicle who I know also have my best interest as a returning customer. I have always highly recommended them to family & friends, I’m just now finally getting around to writing the review they have deserved for years!!!!
Fantastic experience. Tim Thompson was the service advisor and his help was incredible. I brought my truck in with what I thought was a power steering pump problem. Turns out it was fine. Another shop was going to charge me $550.00 to replace the “bad” pump. ADS actually spent time troubleshooting. I finally found a mechanic that I can trust. A great place to have your vehicle repaired.
Steering rack replaced on my 2000 Odyssey. I always work on my own vehicles but when I run into a job that requires more tools and equipment than I have, I am pretty picky about who I choose. I didn’t go with the lowest bid with this job. The value ADS provides comes from the confidence of knowing they will do the job right, and that was worth a little extra. Sure, I’ll continue to work on my own cars, but it’s nice to know there’s an honest and capable shop to back me up.
Excellent shop, very professional staff and atmosphere. Amazingly, more reasonable than much lesser shops I’ve experienced. I travelled out of my way to have a pre-purchase inspection of a used vehicle done because I trust their quality. They exceeded my expectations with an actual computer generated report that included pictures of the issues and their recommendations. All delivered electronically with the ability for me to print copies. Couldn’t have been happier. Thanks ADS!
Just wanted to take a minute to express my sincere appreciation for such an outstanding team at ADS! The professionalism and courtesy they have given to me through all of the automotive problems that I have laid on them is why I’m a repeat customer for nearly 20 years! Whatever my car problems have been, ADS has always come through giving me the satisfaction knowing that the job was done right. Thanks goes to the entire team at ADS!!
Tim was a great help to me. He supported me from the first initial call. He explained everything to me that needs to be done to my vehicle in specific details. When I walked in it was very welcoming and the staff all said hello and made me feel welcomed. I felt safe there, being that I am a female. I plan to return to get the the other services done for my vehicle. I am glad to be a new customer.
Very impressed with Ryan and the techs at ADS. They were very knowledgeable about my Prius, gave me cost effective options, they replaced the hybrid power pack and got my car back to me in 24 hours. Thank you for outstanding service gentlemen!
