When i get back on the dyno I will post the sheet, the 580 is afr around 11.5 on a street tune, been really busy to get on the dyno. I was on the dyno before but now that i got a new wastegate and can get lower then 12psi i have to go back on the dyno, when on it last week to see my numbers and load up the rollers and got a good afr. so probally gonna go on the dyno after the injectors and run 7psi and final tune it.
oo and i forgot to put the wategate in the review but i got a defective wastegate from them and no one whats to do anyhting about it so I bought another one and now dont have problems no more
Yea F that company. I saw a car with there kit that was having a bunch of issues at the shop 6 months ago. I'm glad you were able to get everything to work out it just sucks you had to pay that much money and "still have to get stuff to work out".

Well guys, just my two cents worth, I have what sounds like the exact same set up from fastlane (aem tru boost controller, aem air/fuel gauge, aem meth injection, zl1 extended tip turbo kit with a phase 2 comp cam, dual fuel pumps, and no issues whatsoever, it runs like a.dream, 17,000 miles on the turbo kit and still hauling a$$. It is a kick a$$ kit with no maintenance issues. Who hasn't ordered something by mail order and have something shorted? No reason to blast the company, patience is a virtue, anytime I need guidance from those guys, they always return calls, emails, or text messages. In the end, great product and great customer service for me. BTW- play with it a bit and you will see 650 rwhp on 9 psi......& fastest 5th gen camaro at the Texas mile in October 2011,,, 178.1 mph. (With the stock clutch)

i have email and call logs with no contact back. your talkin about mail orders being short parts? i ordered a kit thats nothing like the picture. Called them on missing parts and defective parts and they dont do anything about it. I bought the kit and put another 1000 into all the missing and defective parts. If its missing parts and someone calls they should send them out no problem but they didnt. I ordered this kit with 65lbs injectors and double checked with the before it shipped out and still got 50lbs injectors and they want 550 more for the injecters i ordered till they get the WRONG ones back. I done turbonetics kits and I GOT EVERYTHING i ordered in the kit. if you get a turkey sandwich with cheese and they forgot the turkey would you be mad? sorta like this kit

Your alittle out of line with all that. He never said the car didn't run good just that he did not get what was advertised and then no contact back when he asked why.

Seems like you may have something to do with the shop or buddies with them. But what they did to this man was not right.

Thats nice...thanks for your input..we appreciate your thoughts on the company. They must hate the.OP cuz thy messed his shipment up
And send all the wrong stuff obviously he did not have such a great experience with them..they didnt just short him pieces..they want to charge him more for the.injectors first of all which i beleave he said.came with the kit..and they sent all the wrong parts. Parts which he had to modify to make this work.. So hes not bashing a company that doesnt deserve it...he bought the kit for a ton money and now that its done and paid for there not giving him the time of day...so u say he should be patient? When he had to put another 1000 into the kit when it should of came like advertised? u would of been pissed as well..he did give it ime..2 months time or something like that..so please before saying he shouldnt be doing this..understand he gave it time.amd money and they still wont provide the service that is expected.

He did ok, sucks he had to buy the waste gate but all the other stuff didn't seem like alot, even though he shouldn't have had to get anything. I think in the end if he gets the right sized injectors he will be happy.

17,000 miles....that must have been what? a year and half ago?
Maybe they were responsive to you, but it sounds like Fast-lane shorted him, slow shipped, Upcharged, and were unresponsive to REPEATED follow-up.....
Doesn't sound like the same folks, does it.

He has more patience than I would have.....I would have reversed the charge and sent back a few tubes and told my CC co...thats all I got. I learned a long time ago that it cuts both ways. I have, and every consumer should have a ZERO tolerance policy for after-market automotive fraud....because that is what it is.

So it sounds like Fast-Lane Sucks!
But I would let Bumblebee install a Turbo on my car any day.....
So BB if you want to come to CA for a vacation, I gotta air-conditioned garage, a pool, Barbque, bar with fridge and I know some chicks who will absolutely destroy you....

Hey guys, I never said anything aboutthe OP's not running good, just stating my experiences with the company,, and no, I do not have any affiliation with the shop, just your average joe trying to improve my ride,,,at a price.that I can afford...
