Well, now at least I have a valid UPS tracking #. We'll see how it works when I get it. Adam apologised for not getting back to me and simply stated that he had been busy and could not get the boost control feature to work for me. It is still NO excuse for not replying sooner.

That being said, he did also refund some $ b/c he could not get the boost control to work as promised. I'm not sure, but I also think that my MS may be in the stock ecu box, but it really doesn't matter to me all that much.

So as soon as I get it, my 550cc injectors are off to be cleaned and hopefully the car will be running again and I can report back.

Regardless, I do think that not hearing from someone for over a month is not cool, especially since "I've been busy" is not really a good reason as it takes less than one minute to fire off a quick e-mail. Kind of reminds me of j-i-m-b. Furthermore, if that's what I can expect for support, makes me think that I should have just done it on my own. Especially since, when he was promoting his kit, I expressly asked him about support/help and he assured me that he would be available by PM/e-mail/phone, but obviously that's not true.

On the plus side, at least Adam is not a scammer who just takes your money and runs. Like I said, I think he just bit off more than he could chew at the time. It doesn't make him a bad guy, just a bad businessman and everyone can make mistakes. At least, I'm finally going to get what I paid for....over two months later... On the seriously negative side, the lack of communication and support would make me never order anything from him in the future. YMMV.

Are you serious? What happens if you get the thing and it doesn't work, are you willing to wait MONTHS to get it up and running?

I wouldn't.

Fine for the same price i dont care one thing i promised my self when i started with the turbo thing is i wouldnt rush being done. If I take the car down it stays there as long as i need it to be and gets done right. This Is a mantra to save me abunch of money. I wont be doing MS for a litle while anyway still got abit more leeway in the stock ecu to be messing with a timming controller, just yet. Much less a standalone fuel controller.
