I dont know if i'd be more worried about the fact that :

It's getting a PCPro

Tom said there was a problem with the fuel [or the PCPro!!]

Tom was glad the car had good brakes.

That's exactly what I want to hear when I am half a world away:

"There was a problem..."

building kits that are highly dependent on a good tank of gas, again, a sign of a good tuner.

So he drove to Tuscon and back to empty the tank on a car that has serious knock issues?

Why didn't he just jumper the fuel pump and disconnect a fuel line, then drain it into a pan?

I held my mouth for a while, but Tom's last one was too enticing to resist.

edit- BenR, you predicted my response exactly.

As I was responding, I actually thought about that. I feel kinda guilty for giving the poor guy anxiety while he's overseas, but the end justifies the means...


I'm guessing thread pruning in 3... 2...

This one was left wide open for ridicule. I must say I am pleased to see how members of this forum kept the comments constructive on how there may have been better ways to do this.

Unfortunately, some always feel the need to start an old war that adds no value.

Ya know, you can be part of a solution or part of a problem. It is clear which path you chose.

""You paid for the dyno time, you paid for the replacement gas for the car, you spent your time test driving the car to make sure there was no other issues, Tom, just what the heck were you thinking???

I'm warning you right now Tom, you pay for one more thing and that's it! I'm taking my business elsewhere!""


He might be paying for a whoooole lot more real soon....

Did Tom say he let the guy stay at his house??? Lol...
All kits now come with an all night lesson of yo-yo tricks as well!!!
