Shifts a lot better too, but Tom and Troy decided it best to still change the valve body and put a switch in for 4lo. So that's where it is now, at Tom's waiting for him to hopefully put in the final touches. Troy says if we have any issues give him a call or bring it out and he will scan it again. Now THAT"S customer service!
Any more detail on the sensors? Did they need to change anything for the tune to work with them?

The 02 sensors I had (Bosch #15282) were the wrong sensors for that motor. I just looked at the receipt to see if they put the new part number down. Wasn't, but I called and Troy will be calling me back at some point today with that part number and I'll ask him if he had to adjust the computer. I'm guessing maybe he did because he asked another guy if he had hooked the computer back up. Will keep you posted.

Thanks. I think those are the sensors I have too, because I have a 6.0 harness, but I've got a 5.3 motor.

Didn't get ahold of me Friday, he had Coreys buggy in right after I picked mine up for last minute tuning. I'll call him Monday afternoon if I don't hear back sooner. I need the part number anyway for my list.

i was not impressed. the pipes connected to the header were not tightened and they were leaking.(i put at least 15 turns on all 4 bolts)and it looked like a 10 year old did the welds.

I will say the customer service was good. I wanted to run duals, he must have called me 3 times and I believe Kevin a couple times trying to find a way.,....in the end they did what they had to do. No duals. Yep, the bolts were loose as hell .....as far as the welds go, they may not be pretty but as long as they hold i'm good. Not like it's where it's visable or like my jeep is a show car. The guy that answers the phone tho has very limited english skills

The price was very fair.

$350. I had the flanges, so from headers back ,2 into 1, used their muffler. If I remember right the guy that did mine was Jason. Talk to him directly, much easier...

They told me $160ish before they realized they had to use their muffler and go up and around the oil pan. You should be good. Don't talk to the dude that answers the phone, ask for Jason
