Howell hands down. Troy knows his stuff and great service. And yes, $$$ stays in Michigan! I seriously like the option of taking the jeep there to be tuned after. Any issues, they get handled right then.

I'm not buying that at all....it doesn't matter how much good work you do, one mistake can ruin all of it...it sounds like Jim made his here

Drove it around for a couple hours today. Have to get that exhaust leak taken care of and definitly will have Tom do the shift kit as soon as he can. I'm very happy with it, just a little fine tuning now. Temp stayed under 200 , oil pressure around 45-50. Damn did I miss driving this thing!!!


I have no other way of basing an opinion on Jim other then my own experience. He seems like a very nice guy, always tried to answer questions and phone calls. My experience with his product however was not good and the fact that when he didn't have info on something he assumed instead of calling....well, that was a poor choice on his part. I paid him $570 and he refunded $385. Better then a kick in the teeth, but I will put my money and referals on Troy at Howell.

LOL.

Funny thing is, I could've built Becky her harness and did a custom program for her I wasn't so busy trying to finish my *build*. I have to do damn-near the same shit 4 or 5 times a year when we get some new technology at work.

Just got back from Muffler Man on Dixie.......they fixed my exhaust leak for me, no charge.Both sides were leaking where they connect to the headers. Motor mount on passenger side was part of the issue. Zero clearance.Sounds so much better Great group of guys in there, I guess his son works at the Midas in Ludington.

Bad part is the oil leak that showed up on the passenger side valve cover needs replaced soon. Leaking pretty good
Oh well.....it's back, it is all together and everything works great,

Yep, back side of the passenger side valve cover. I think they quoted me for a head gasket tho, no way a valve cover gasket parts/labor is $230. Just gonna have it done at the house.
