Possible ECS SC install....

So I am very near to pulling the trigger on having Matt from FSP install an ECS SC and swap out my DOD lifters, along with some suspension mods. My only reservation with the installation right now is do I or don't I go with meth, keep in mind I've never had a SC or dealt with meth before.

Can I get some opinions please? Matt has already schooled me a bunch and I do value his opinion but I'd like to hear from actual users and non-user of meth about the pros and cons.

Once I can get this decision made it looks like my car is off to FSP!

Thanks everyone.

We need another junkie so please feel free to join us.

Its all a matter of tuning with Meth and how dependent you want the car to be on it. You are in good hands so I would not expect any issues.

You are in good hands!

Matt has been employed with us for years before going on his own in sunny FL, so few people know the kit as well as he does.

Besides being a personal friend, he is also one of our main distributors and installers of ECS products. We have worked together on tuning and besides being well experienced on his own, we have also shared our experiences while he was here.

I'm sure you will find many threads on this board with others who feel the same way.


Let us know if there is anything we can do to assist, but I do not think it will be needed if you take your car to FSP.

Meth is good. Matt is good. Matt on Meth is better.

Go meth... If you don't you'll wish you had and need a retune... Like I did...
I picked up 270hp with cam meth and new spark plugs (and new tuner!!!!!!)
Thanks to Lethal Racing

considering Matt is probably in the top 5 for LSx tuners I would do Meth if I were you.

Get the meth now. You'll save the money in the end because once you install meth, you'll need to retune. What I did, was have the meth installed at the same time as the SC kit. One tune and I was set.

BTW, watch out for that Matt character, I don't think he's all there in the head....
