I still need to dyno with the re-tune and the new TC, so we'll see what this transmission can put to the wheels.
That's great news - so it was the TC? Did SGP take it apart to see what was wrong with it?

i got my vortech supercharger tuned there and thought mark was awesome as he was very knowledgeable with what he was doing...but since i left there the day i went (i drove from dallas there and back in one day) i had issues with my tuning (stalling, erratic idle, etc.)...i talked to mark on the phone he said to tow it down there when i had a chance and he would take care of it free of charge..this was all before ike and since the storm i haven't gotten sgp to answer one call and my car was supposed to be towed today but i called it off due to not wanting my car to be towed to somewhere i dont even know is still open..now when i call sgp is just beeps...now im left with a car i cant even really drive

I'm not sure what the problem was. The main thing is that the TC was stalling to 4000rpm at low boost and 5200rpm at high boost. Because of that, it was locking and unlocking throughout the gears. The new TC is stalling to 3000rpm, but I haven't run it at high boost yet. Today UMS told me that someone didn't put a crank sensor in, but a cam angle sensor instead. They are replacing the crank sensor to see if that cures the remaining issues.

crank sensor has a different connector from the cam/phase sensors up top. dont think that can get mixed up.

A Pre-Recon has just been completed...

Eric... I just got off the phone with one of my recon-agents . Your Tranny was seen on the floor at SGP....He did not know if the work was started on it or it was completed....all he could tell is that it was from Intense in AZ....he saw the tag.

As far as phones at SGP....they are not working. Marks cell phone is also not working.

During the Recon .... my agent spotted RobertK at SGP.

Also..if anyone is having machine work done at GNG....They only lost power for 1 1/2 weeks!!!

The last part of my Recon report.....The wind also damaged the garage door at SGP causing wind to enter the shop causing damage to a car...I know who the owner is...but i am sure he would not want me to mention his name.

Update ******

OK....I just got some more info from another Recon Agent....

GNG only lost power....they were only down for a short time...1 1/2 weeks after the hurricane....they have been back on schedule for a while now for those of you that are having work done there either direct or through SGP...

If any of you that are having work done at GNG...just pm me and I will give you the contact info....I will not post the info here.

I just spoke with UMS tuning about my car and the progress. Apparently, there was a SES code for crank sensor, which was separate from my other issues. They replaced this and that code should be resolved. The other issues are related to the Pro-EFI code. Jason is re-writing this piece of code for my car right now and it should be resolved soon.

Thumbs down

hehe,

I've emailed sales@sgp, Mark's email address, called too many times to count, and completed the online form for information. NOTHING!!!!! I'm starting to get frustrated now and if I don't hear something this week I think I'll have no choice but to call an attorney and the local police
