Default TX Mode Parfume stage 3...

I'm going to use this thread to update a few things on the car. A lot of the OG's have seen the build that JPI did. Without getting into too many details (yet), I yanked everything out that JPI touched and redid a lot of it myself. The old saying, "If you want it done right..."

Now the car is at Boost Logic getting a Haltech Platinum 2k standalone setup. Its up and running. I saw the car on the Dyno yesterday...I'll post up video's next week. I'm hoping for a little over 400whp compared to JPI's #'s. I don't feel that JPI actually "tuned" the car...he had no fuel management to "tune"...just an FMU (more on my issues later)

Added:
440 RC Injectors
Built Boost Logic Tranny
Haltech Platinum 2000 standalone w/ custom Boost Logic Harness

I've also got new custom built SSR's on the way..oh...and these bad boys..8 piston front, 6 piston rear bbk, custom anodized...

not assembled yet...

I was wondering what happened to JPI since it seemed like they were one of the few that did a SC xUZ.

keep us updated (with the build, we all know now to just stay away from JPI )!

Jason from JPI is a good guy. He's never dogged me on trying to undo the problems, I just think it was best for me to redo them after witnessing what he called "professional" Install. Here's a couple examples:

This picture, notice the"plasma" cutout by the intercooler pipes? A professional should have cleaned up the cuts afterwards...JPI did not. I get the car like that. It was rubbing a hole in my intercooler pipes. His fix for the rub? I piece of foam tape which didn't last very long. I have since cleaned it up, stopped the rubbing and painted the plasma cut parts so they dont rust.

This is my Methynol Injection controller...I got it unmounted, just sitting on top like this...moving around. The Split Second ESC was the same way, just sitting there moving around. No kind of mounting, no kind of brackets...nothing

Look at the "professonal" mounting plate, cut out with a plasma cutter. I remounted the pump in the bumper. For those that dont know, these pumps are very expensive and dirt, rain, etc..tears it up and it goes bad faster

This one here kills me...just kills me. I supplied a cogged pulley setup. On my JPI build thread he mentioned the old belt didn't last long and I quote.."as you can see"...Now for those that know what a cogged pulley looks like...does that look like a cogged belt? NOPE its a gatorback belt designed for ribbed pulley!!! Of course that belt won't last long on the cogged pulley setup!! its for RIBBED PULLEY!!

I have since changed back to the cogged pulley and purchased some Gates cogged pulley belts. We have run the car on the dyno about 4 pulls...no slipping. We actually saw up to 11psi on that setup too....more to come....

When I got the car back, everything leaked... I had transmission leak, leaking oil in my spark plugs, GAS LEAKING IN MY GARAGE, power steering fluid leak. When I gave the car to him, nothing leaked. I told him this needed to be a reliable setup for my wife.

So here JPI did a "custom" return fuel setup. Look at the quality of the install and tell me...
