Jonathan was making promises he couldn't keep and had a bad business sense. He said the clutch was done, sold one to me, a month went by with excuse after excuse as to why it hadn't shipped. I asked for a refund and was told it would be granted. Another month goes by and I am losing it. I finally contacted my bank and got my refund finally yesterday.
This is not the first forum to ban them and I don't believe it was just for rules infractions.
I'm now going to get back in touch with Spec and see how they're doing with their clutch project.

Now back to our regularly scheduled program.
WOW!! god must have been with me because at one point I was about to put a nice amount of loan on my card and go for a supercharger build from them, but I changed my mind at the last minute and decided to stay all N/A this time around.

Im glad everything worked out for ya at the end but I can just imagine what you was probably going through.

Let's just let them disappear, guys. Will sounded good, sounded enthusiastic, but in the end, couldn't fix what was wrong with Adkins from the start. Google them and you'll see Adkins Performance has been banned from different forums and it's always the same story.

there were a few people who called adkins on this from the moment he started looking for cars to do this with. those of you who refused to believe...well obviously you should have...jonathan is simply an idiot who couldnt run a lemonade stand. funny, i was just curious if i was ever proven wrong with this build so i just did a search, and this is what came up. i feel bad for you guys that got taken, including will if this is true....but you all were warned.

Good thing...

...your NA build is more impressive to me anyways than a supercharged application!

Will seemed like a decent guy. Looks like he just made a bad decision in hitching his wagon to the Adkins Business of Fail.

Who among us hasn't made a poor decision or 2 in our lifetime?

Thanks for the insight USA1. Glad you didn't get the shaft in the end.

I'm out of this and movin on.

Throwing this out there but has anyone looking into the fuel system for the Cobalt? I know alot of guys that have run 30psi over the stock system so my logic is leading me to believe that the direct injection system from a cobalt should flow enough for a LLT.

I know Cobalt's fuel pump is in tank and the rails can run up to 2800psi. So if it can push 4 cylinders to 30psi then it should be able to push 6 at 5-10psi.

Hopefully this can help solve the puzzle

Actually the Cobalts have a similar setup to ours. The in-tank low-pressure pump and a high-pressure pump connected to the cam shaft. They have exactly the same pump and had to rely on aftermarket manufacturers to build new high-pressure pumps. That's what we are working on now.

Our fuel delivery isnt cutting out though. Its the Cobalt guys with larger turbos that are upgrading the rail and sometimes adding a secondary rail. Its my understanding that you guys are only planning on pushing about 10lbs max right? Could the Cobalt injectors flow at a higher rate? If so, using them could be a cheaper solution.

From what i understand of this, its not the rails thats the problem, they spray fine, its that the high pressure pump cant work fast enough to send the amount of fuel we need. I hope im right? lol. i try to follow these turbo threads but i get lost sometimes.

Tracy thinks the pump for the V8 DI Twin Turbo BMWs will work, but hasn't been able to get hold of one.
