When we swapped the vac line that ran from the turbo to the W/G the headers quit turning orange(the turbo installer ran a 3/16 hard plastic line from the turbo to the W/G)
True on the w/g line, it was too small. But for some reason the headders
still turn orange. hum maybe that wasn't the whole fix.
Yes in 2 days I had to help install a steering rack(1 that I let you borrow to get the car to BG for the NMRA), Prime turbo system,Fire a fresh motor( which had approx 6 fuel leaks( poor workmanship on installer)
Help install a rack I remember you letting me borrow a few wrenches. Fuel leaks on the fuel rails that took so much of the
time. The professional products fuel rails and the spider intake suck and that's that. Even with the exhaust straps on the top
of the rails 2 injectors are still leaking. So still not fixed
,Adjust valves, how about telling the whole truth.. adj 1 valve and check the rest.
Replace spark plugs had a N/A plug( installer didn't tell the supplier the motor was turbo) He assumed that there were all
the same. WRONG whatever makes you feel better the were wrong but it still didn't fix the problem
2nd fuel pump in car wasn't working, so i hard wired it to the battery MSD wasn't working , New Accel coil was BAD ( gave you a stock TFI coil to get the car
to run) And that appreciated for the coil what can you do about brand new electronics not working not a whole lot.
Installed 3in exhaust system, is okay hangs a bit low for my taste
Adjusted pinion angle, sooo you adjusted the pinion angle by checking it and then saying its OK? I am not an idiot to adjust someting means to go and get some wrenches when all you did was check it?? i am a tech also and that would nevver fly at our shop.
Adjusted toe end. on the rack that you let me borrow , and that took a lot of time 2 or3 min it wasn't an alignment or any thing
Worked from 10AM - 10:30PM Monday night. Let you borrow a shop truck to go to a motel(couldn't back a trailer).
Hey it was offered so i took you up on it. What is it any ones business if the 3rd time I drive my truck I can back up a car trailer I am 24 years old and If anyone has an issue with that then they can go somewhere really crappy of you to bring that up in a turbocharges forumn but whatever makes you feel better.
Worked from 9AM -3:30PM Tue. yep me too i was there working
End result Torque Convetor was wayyy to loose stalled to 4700RPM on the dyno. Spark was blowing out with stock TFI coil @
approx 4900 RPM's
End result... I was asking questions on here never said who it was because i was asking for information NOT opinions!! I
wanted to have everything fixed and returned to you before I said you didn't know what you were doing, All of the
hospitality was appreciated and I think that you are a nice person, but you getting offended by me asking questions or
doubting you makes you look like an #######! I guess that's why your twin turbo dart based cougar went 13's all day in
bowling green ? What a great tuner you are ? Oh yea I really didn't appreciate you instant messaging your friend while my
car was on your dyno it was really crappy of you to plan your weekend while i was paying you to dyno tune my car on the
dyno,. I guess we will figure out if it was crappy head gaskets with the other car in your shop if a bad tune next time it will come in with a torched piston or 2.
Your friend and he said that you can "ship it" so you tuned it with a vaccum leak and did just that SHIPPED IT!
About not being very happy. You forgot to mention the $500 plus dollars I knocked off your bill.
I remember you charging for hour to hour then changing it to me renting the dyno for a day so so you can talk to all of your Buddy's on instant messaging i am sure some of it was for help but mostly not! There were tons of other distractions so please don't think that you worked on the car
all day long.
Learn to read the data log before you go quoting timing. At no time is the timing @ 37 degrees @ 4700 RPM
You are correct i jumped the gun on that one the data logs, very screwy , they are so short because the car kept turning the headders orange, even on the last pull never got a clean pass even after the spark plugs and the w/g line replaced still a bit too much orange for me
Fix all the problems with your car and swap the TC in the trans and I will show you some #'s And I will prob take it some where else
I have tuned many turbo fox cars as several on this board. I know that that's one of the reasons i went to you
P.S. If you have a problem with me Next time stand up like a man and call me or email me. Anyone can hide behind a keyboard.
I didn't have a problem with you. And Still don't i just want everything 2x checked! I don't like orange headders. You are the one who wanted to vent on the Internet not me if and when i get everything fixed and i find that the tune is jacked then you better be live that you will be hearing from me. I wasn't going to bother you until i knew for a fact that there was issues other then the headders turning orange.
If I had something to hide I surely wouldn't have given you the tune on a flash card along with the data logs.
I never said you had something to hide all i said was the the 100 rpms sheets were not any help and they looked fake because
they were only for a 100 rpms why not 1000 or 2500 rpms. 100 is too short for any information
So good luck with your car but don't blame your hurried work and poor performance on my tuning ability.
Again I Never blamed you, yet I wish you better luck on your car also and we will be in touch when all of the issues are worked out new converter from percsion will be here shortly.
