"We contacted STS yesterday, and as stated in the post they informed us they will be shipping out late this month! We are accepting pre-orders to hold your spot in line as availability will be limited! "

I'm developing a kit that cuts the Camaro's weight by 1000 lbs. It will cost about $3K. I've only been able to drop the weight by 100 lbs so far, but I'm sure I will have all the other aspects of the kit worked out by the end of the month. The good news is that I am accepting preorders! Don't miss out.

See how ridiculous that sounds?

I call on preorders when they haven't gotten something to work yet.

You can go on their site and order it right now. STS is very respectable in the FI arena.

I'm sure they are very respectable. I'm just a little skeptical since there have apparently been a lot of problems getting this thing perfected. The car shown in all the videos you linked to was a partially functional prototype. They even said then that the tune wasn't quite ready for production. I guess we will see in a few weeks.

I'll believe it when i see it. When STS posts up some factual dyno sheets, good quality videos, parts list, and guarentees.. i might consider it to be real. :P

So let me get this straight...

You guys beg for FI... A few try it. You guys Blast them for not being able to break new ground that has never been broken before.

They try again and and this time make it available for purchase.... And you still call

I'm sure when they do post videos and dyno sheets you will probably say it was photoshoped... or edited......

Ok, that's not as bad as I was thinking, so basically add 1K to the final price.

It will be a bolt-on system so installation shouldn't be terrible.

I applaud STS for taking their sweet time, rather have a polished product than a rushed to market product.

The "pre-order" is basically a $500 deposit to reserve your spot in line. Personally, if you want the system and want to be among the first then its a good option. If your unsure then I would just wait a few months.

Anyone wanting more information about specs or shipping date, give them a call!
Phone: 801-224-3477 or Email: sales@ststurbo.com but would highly recommend calling.

I am glad they waited too........I was curious too because of the alleged issues that were reported.

I don't have the funds for it right now anyway, but I might just do this next year

I will keep you guys in my contacts list for the setup.

Agreed, thats what I would recommend. It comes with detailed instructions. STS claims a 12 hour install, so I would assume if your mechanic charges $65.00 an hour it would run about $800. Best option is get your gear head friends over and buy some beer and pizza haha.

Nope, lol..just don't go in until midnight tonight, was off last two days. Normally work second shifts, right during lunch, or just before, lol.

You know us v6ers, lol. We want it all, we want it all now and we want it to work now!

In all reality, since STS hasn't updated this themselves, nor AAC, I'm sure it's more about what's happened since the roll out at C5Fest. I believe if someone strapped this on, it would make a huge difference, I wish I had the cash to do it, because it would be on my car right now, lol. Maybe we can get STS to prototype a second car? (like mine!!)

I don't see it that way at all, and I don't think anybody is bashing them for trying. I am thrilled they are trying. I am just realistic about the fact that it is not an easy thing they are doing. When a vendor says something is ready to ship this month and they start taking money, they are stating to the consumer that they can deliver this kit in the near future. The fact that STS is breaking new ground is the very reason many of us roll our eyes when "announcements" like this are made. If you do overstate the availability of your product, you know you are going to catch a little flak from it.
