Local shop. The tuner is DAMN good. I've been corresponding with him, but he rents a bay from the shop and keeps a dyno there. The shop doesn't do any tuning, just the work.

The shop wants 1400.00 to do the install, THEN I gotta go to the other guy to tune it.

ARD is looking pretty good right about now.

I got a few more weeks to figure it out. If I go to Houston it won't be til January. BUT, I'll give you heads up.

I could go to J-Ville as well.

Not sure yet. I got a safe place in J-Ville at GTAHVITs house. In Houston, I got my Bro In Law who would be happy to get it for me if needs be.

Doesn't sound like anyone is gonna beat the ARD deal. Unless I do it myself. Which I could do and have the guy here tune it. I have absolutely no doubt the tuner here is top knotch. But he's not always in town.

He's just too far. I don't want to have to leave my car anyway, but if I have to leave it, I don't want it that far away.

No worries.

I got time. Looks like it will be January if I travel to get it done.

If I do it myself, I will start it the moment the blower gets here. lol

Tony sent me the refund and I sent it back to him.

Savini insisted on sending me sensors even though I wasn't asking for them. I accepted.

Of course, Tony DID say the money was for beer. Maybe I should have kept it.........???

AND SO IT BEGINS..................

That's right. For my next trick, ladies and gentlemen, I shall atempt a death defying (ok, flesh and bone defying) install of a TVS2300 Magnacharger on a 5th Gen Camaro L99.

If you think the wheel injury was bad. You won't wanna miss this. LMMFAO..............

Go for it Buddy. Take your time and read the instructions. How hard can it be. Doing mods are half the fun of it.

Glad that you finally got your blower.

Looks small compared to the Whipple though.

Good luck with the install Randy.

This unit was previously installed on another 5th Gen, so maybe it will be easier.

It's YOUR fault. So anything that happens to me will forever be on your conscience.
