    That is a good idea Cailey, I will have the guys put new pics of a lowered TA on the web site. As far as the oil pump goes. We have a new better pump that has helical cut gears and a high volume out put. Also there is a switch that goes off before the oil enters the charge pipes.
    A TYPICAL DAY AT WORK!!!!

    It's too bad that you have previous customers out there with blown motors from the oil problem. What about them? Will STS take care of them? Unless it's a weldon pump I would say this "new improved" pump isn't going to make much of a difference. Got pics of it? I'd be curious to see who makes it....

    The PCV system has GOT to be addresses as well, that is part of the problem.

    The STS system actually uses a pressure switch to STOP PCV at WOT??!?!?? Why on earth was that done? The PCV *MUST* be drawn from the air inlet all the way at the back of the car at the turbo's inlet. Stopping crankcase evacuation AT WOT on a boosted car is nuts, why would STS think that was ok?

    I'm not knocking your company, I'm just sick of getting STS cars to tune and having their owner's argue about their own setups that they don't even understand, because "that's not what STS told me". Rediclulous things like the "charge pipe is long and there fore it cools the air and I don't need an intercooler". Have you ever LOOKED at the IATs of a car at 5psi at the top of 4th gear after a WOT pull from a standstill? Or the PCV system, that I make them fix (as mentioned) but "STS says it's not neccessary".... not neccessary?

    Have you guys ditched the crappy couplers yet with the new kit?

    Cailey I got your back on this, awhile back i gave them a call to see how much it would cost. ( I actually conidered buying) they somehow managed to get all my contact info, Kept calling every single day for three weeks strait forcing my to buy. A good Kitt company lets the Custumers come to them not them comming to you. so i immediately said... Nope this isnt for me.
