    Unhappy Build gone wrong

    Had the last phase completed 4 weeks ago by having a TSP 418 ci LS3 installed. Low speed drivability was horrible. Self revving, hanging revs, car was shutting off w/the air on, etc. The car was very strong on the highway. Am very disappointed w/the guys in JAX. 2nd time the car was delivered w/issues. After some local work was performed, the car runs better, but still nowhere close to expectations. Having to now spend yet more $$ for a contemporary PCM (car was left w/the LS1 PCM), reluctor wheel change, & cam change to give better low to mid speed drivability. Am seriously considering taking the pistons out as well (the motor will be out of the car) & going low compression for a blower. Will update soon. Am working now with a shop in Miramar, FL called "Torq."

    Hate that for you...that was a lot of money to sink in just up to this point, only to be disappointed. I hope everything works out better with the new shop. Keep us posted.
