My Build To A 9Sec 1/4

Recommended Posts

yeah I really dont know, was promised it would be running friday almost 2 weeks ago and id have it back last monday (week and a half ago)...dropped in last thurs, they had to pull out EVERYTHING that the last shop did and chop it up into peices to save some sensors and plugs and whatnot. im guessing I got stung atleast 5k from bps, the BASTARDS...kent tells me there was NO WAY IN HELL it would ever have run with that wiring loom, there wasnt wires to the coils or starter motor for example...but its got the new standard loom back in and the autronic mostly in, but I just think they are having some trouble connecting everything back up because james from bps just 'chopped' the harness out right at the plug. its really sh*thouse, I guess its just not a fun job fixing it all up. he tells me hopefully by this weekend but I doubt it very much

the throttlebody and cable setup they have installed looks trick though ill post some pictures up in a few days ill hopefully get down friday sometime.

that's a big stuff up from bps and will take time to fix mate. if its at hi torque as long a time as at bps, then that's still a credit to them aslong as its fixed imo(it wont be though). huge mess up. they will fix it.

well I went down today, they were trying to start it and finishing off the wiring, so hopefully next week. all the cdi and ecu is in so just all the little stuff. they have been really good, dont mean to make it sound like they havent been doing anything. they are a mad shop and havent stopped since I dropped it off. it just took a while for them to find out actually how much bps f*cked the car up though I think... cant say enough bad stuff about THAT shop

and mic, hi torque have done ten times more than bps did in 7 months in 3 weeks so I dont think itll be there that long (I hope!) haha

breaking news! I have heard it will be dynoed again on monday! (not dynoed again, just told :P_) I think they are serious now though, ecu/cdi is all finished and kent has told me that they have had some issues with the program BPS had on the ecu which he had to walk through over the phone with autronic (NOT SURPRISED AS BPS FFUUUUCCCKKKKEEEEDDDDDDDD EVERYTHING ELSE ON THE CAR!!!!!). ive got nothing else but words to give for the thousands of dollars and months of time ive wasted with that amateur shop. I would not recommend this shop to ANYBODY I say again! so should have some figures hopefully early next week anyways :blink:

One thing I have to admire your patience.

They must have had James on the job for the months it was there.

Ripping out the ECU was a dumb and dumber decision. I have done ECU installs and you go one step at a time. Piggy back the bare essentials, get the car started and tuned a little then piggy back the balance.

Rip everything out, wire everything in the one hit and it doesnt start, then there is alot of head scratching even for the pros like me.

what did you put that up for? obviously he has some skill BUT he couldnt get a standalone harness going for the car, and promised me the cars air con, dash, interior command, central locking etc WOULD still work, which is why I did it! but now I know its common knowledge that you cant do standalone harnesses for these cars because of the CAN security system. ofcourse they promised a WHOLE BUCH OF sh*t, which is why I went along with it FOR 6 MONTHS!! andrew is a top bloke and mechanic and all work he did was done straight away and was good as. james is the weak link and hes the owner. hes got no idea. he doesnt know how to program them either as hitorque had to wipe it and spend a week on the phone with autronic to sort it out because it was not going to run. kent says it was breaking down under light load etc because of a crank sensor problem...

regardless hitorque pulled out and FIXED the mess. put a standard loom back in and spliced the autronic in in a few weeks. better than 6 months, and IT WORKS!!!!!!!!!!! JAMES WOULD NEVER EVER HAVE GOT THE CAR RUNNING, he had missed wiring to the coils and starter motor I was told, if the standalone harness was to even run the motor...but talk is cheap, im speaking from straight up experience, and gave him every chance to get the car going and make a car that would promote the shops work at my cost....burt hey, that's why he now has only one person working for him, and if it wasnt for andrews top work, it would go bust overnight!

enough sh*t speaking, its all good now! just hope people can take my experience as their own and give the people in the industry the business that deserve it! and not waste time with sh*t that's so easy to spit out. credit to kent and hitorque so far update next week with the results..

its fine on idle and driving around, but kent said once up to temperature and reving its very smoky, like the seal is gone. so we just have to find out if the feeds clean, and the oil isnt coming from anywhere else like the rings or valve stems...but if the turbo is broken, hopefully its just seals, ill get a new gtx turbo and fix and sell this one...wait and see but this is doing my head in. been disappointment after disappointment that's all this cars been giving me :buttrock:
