What did John say about sending the motor out and it not running correctly? I would expect a motor that needed absolutely nothing since you ordered it turn key from him

I was wondering the same thing.
"There can be no divided allegiance here.  Any man who says he is an American,
but something else also, isn't an American at all.  We have room for but one
flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is
the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a
loyalty to the American people."
Theodore Roosevelt 1907

 I feel the same way guys. but I live in kanas and john is in California. so my thought is. I need to have my ducks in a row before I call him. my first step is make sure I can communicate with the ecu unit. that way if needed he can remote  into  my laptop and make corrections or direct me in the right direction to make the corrections. He told me right off. I have first run on a new injector he is using and it my need tuning . it runs great other then the dead spot off idle. and ya that sucks. I have the software download to attach to the ecu. i just have not had the time to try it. it looks very similar to my two other injection system software. if it was easy woman and children would be doing it!!!!   LMAO All jokes aside. I'm sure john will make it work/right one way or another.

he sounds like a stand up guy and i am sure he will work with you too. you are correct you need to get that lap top communicating before calling and maybe even datalog the event logging all parameters then email then call. you know what to do and i'm sure he'll get it sorted out.  no matter what it's drivable and more fun than the 2.0!  ;D

I got my motor tuned in the car at his shop. He definitely likes to upsell but knows his stuff for sure. Took my 2.5 from 300hp to 400hp with some parts and a tune

I made 300hp with the motor how I bought it on 91 octane. I changed the turbo from a Garrett t3 to a Turbonetics t3/t4 and bigger header and tuned to 400hp on 110 octane.

I do agree with you on the up sell. I had to keep shutting him down on that.

I will need to look when I get home. I know they called Turbonetics when I was there and they said it was sized for 400-415hp

the worst part of turbonetics is they dont mark or label the turbo build.
