Default Leaving Front sway bar off

Had a shop fab up my intercooler kit and they removed the sway bar to do so. Now their saying they cant get it back on unless we have them turn it around and fab it up backwards, but they want to charge us 200 to do so. Question becomes, do i just leave it off?

That's ghetto as ****. Its not your fault they can't fabricate piping. They need to get a ******* clue and or give you money back. "Hey dude, I screwed something up on your car because I'm a ******* dip-**** retard and now I need you to give me more money to fix what I already fucked up."

No, you must have a front sway bar or you're proper fucked.

We fabbed up the intercooler and now the engine doesn't fit. It'll be another $5000 for us to custom mount the engine.

You wouldn't possibly accept that. Why accept the other. It's the same principle, just a matter of degrees.

Also, how the **** are going to remount the sway bar?
I could see how you could drop it down a little but besides that...

They say that to redo the intercooler system to fit the sway bar they have to drop it another 1-2 inches which will put it below my bumper and likely to get taken out :/

Dude, there are like a thousand guys who have ghetto fabbed their intercooler setups, at home DIY'ers with nothing more than some random bends, straights, couplers, clamps and a saw... on this forum.

For a shop to say they "can't" get it to fit is stupid. What size intercooler? Is this some crazy unheard of setup?

I'm betting they can't get it to fit between the radiator and the swaybar to come up and meet the intake. They should've known better. Take a turn at medium speed w/o a front bar and you'll swear you were on ice. It's dangerous.

Don't stand for it OP!

they seemed great at first, and i was all gun ho, then things started to slow down and things started to be "forgotten" and then i had to babysit them for 4 hours before the tuner showed up just to find out that i have no front sway bar, the wide band wasnt hooked up properly, i have no fuel, and the aem is not reading my MAP sensor or my TPS.

Small claims court and tow the car elsewhere before they thrash it any further.

Fix it or give your money back, that is their choices as far as I can think. Next time you see civics and neons with front mount intakes and whitsle tips with street glow stickers on top of the un painted body kits, don't take your car there.
