    well i spoke to an hp turbo tech he said it will take up to a month to fabricate the system, he also added that the stock ls engine should be kept at 8lbs of boost which will add about 500rwhp, give them a call they will answer any question you may have

    How much for the f-body kit? They sent a 05 mustang to us (STS) to help dial in the tuning. the kit was not well engineered, but i am sure it was cheap.

    I especially like how STS will pay someone $10K to just put their names on the car....check out Mike Murillo's Mustang on their site....I met him here in Florida and I asked him about the kit....it's not one piece of STS's junk! He just got a check for $10K from them....and hey...money talks I guess.....but STS = Junk!

    Well I dont know about the $10k, but the technology is the same. We actually gave him the oil pumps and idea on how to return the oil to the motor. Did you meet him at PRI or where? As far as the money, the only thing we gave him was the Technology and a few parts. That is why he was at our booth at both SEMA and PRI. Dont hate just cause you yourself CAILEY37 could not make it work right. I am a 25 year old kid that knew nothing of turbos 2 years ago and now I enough to know what works and what doesnt. All FI kits will have there problems.

    Hey StangSlayer (cool name)

    Is that HP kit with tuning or with out? And the mustang that we got here ran good, just not perfect. The owner of that mustang actually traded it in and my buddy bought it. I am still tuning it.

    you know If im going to spend the money on FI ill would go all the way. get ones custom fabed don't penny push cause it will coem back and bit you. Or APS makes ones hell of a system. they are expensive but IMO no other pre fabed system can beat there seat-up

    First of all, I'm not the only one that couldn't make it work. Read the boards. People that have tried them have the same issues! You've only been at this for two years, I've been at it quite a long time. I know junk when I see it. Next, the oil pumps on Mike's Mustang aren't STS's! They are Weldon pumps. Did you guys start selling those? When I asked him about the STS connection he rolled his eyes and said it was just the money. But I do like how you try to make this "it's just the installer" issue. Like I said, I lost a motor to STS....that's a fact! I lost countless dollars trying to perfect your kit and finally said the hell with it and put the thing up front where it belongs and I haven't had one issue with it! I understand you work there and trying to promote the product and all but dont come on here and act like they are the perfect kit!

    +1 Chad if youre trying to sell the kit go to the "parts for sale" thread, then you can blabber all you want on how good the STS kitt is fabricated.

    for the best FI kitt that i have read about and actually theres good review out for it is the APS kitt just ask TNTramair how well his set up went.

    Im going APS myself the price means that the quailty is high and will last longer than some kitt that sits out its turbo where the muffler should be.

    Alright Alright Everyone is entitled to there own opinion!!! you have to look at it from my perspective, I have one on my car and I love my car almost more than my wife. I would not put a piece of crap on my car!! If you guys dont like STS than thats fine I am not trying to push or sell the kit cause i work there. I am defending my car. I just think eveyone should go FI and I think APS is good stuff I have never nocked there kit. I am just expressing my opinion of the way my car runs!! If you guys want to get bitter thats fine, I just came on the forum to find good ideas about my car and talk to other guys that love there cars. By the way i ran at the track on friday (first time) and i ran a 13.4 at 93 mph 60' time was 2.2 on street tires. I missed the 3 to 4 shift and went to 2. What can i do to hook up? Need idea's, tips, Etc......

    Thanks Guys I will appreicate any advice!!!
    A TYPICAL DAY AT WORK!!!!

    I've got an HP kit for my mustang. They said it'd take 6-8 weeks. It actually took about 5 months. The quality was outstanding, and it is beautiful. However, it isn't cheap, and make sure you are not in a hurry.

    My friend had an STS turbo on his Camaro but has since went with a do it yourself front mount kit. I too am interested in the HP kit and the Kentucky turbo kit (if any of you have seen it) I would like to go FI on my trans am and want to go with a front mount single.
