I was just there today talking to him about a procharger kit/install tune. Seem cool and knowledgeable. Gave me a quick tour of the inside of the shop, lots of nice stuff in there that most other shops don't have.

I think with the Axial Vector engine they can provide power to the east coast of the US. I thought Ed said they were going to install it into a white Vette to see what happens.

No kidding, I think Ed said they are at 3400HP and shooting for 3500HP, that would be scary to drive.

I am sure Ed gave you a fair quote, he has been fair to everyone I have talked to. I installed my TVS 1900 myself, not because of the money, I just wanted to do it myself. I had Ed tune it after the SC install and I have been screwing things up lately (don't ask). I will probably will need Ed to tune it again soon to fix the things I have fixed myself.

He did, it was less than the other shop I asked for a procharger install. It is a fair price. Just saving money makes me angry.
