    So, to make a very long story short.....i told you guys back June how i got my Corvette supercharged and i was totaly dissapointed with the results and i dumped allot of money into the car.....Well i was on the corvette forums and somebody from Carrol Superchargering,-Blowerworks, had posted a sort of how to/care guide for superchargers and to email him your you wanted a copy sent to you....So i emailed him and said to him,

    "I would love a copy...Hopefully it will explain why the hell my ATI Procharger on my 1994 Auto is making some weak ass power after $7600 from J & M Motorsports in CT..."

    And he wrote back to me asking about the Dyno chart and A/F ratio, spark curve ect....

    i emailed him the Dyno Chart, he said something is definitly wrong....Then he emailed me the following on Saturday..

    "SCOTT,

    I'D LIKE TO FIX YOUR VETTE AS PART OF A MAGAZINE ARTICLE. WOULD NEED YOUR CAR FOR A WEEK OR TWO.

    ONLY COSTS TO YOU WOULD BE DYNO TIME (I HAVE NO DYNO) AND A WATER KIT ($395.00). MY PROMISE TO YOU WOULD BE A MINIMUM 400 RWHP. DYNO TIME WILL NOT EXCEED $400 - IF IT DID I'D TAKE CARE OF.

    SINCERELY
    GREG"

    I thought that was pretty cool....and i can't wait to get the process started

    youd you send your car off to seomwone for two weeks who wrote you a letter in all caps?

    i know i wouldn't.

    my pessimisn my be appaling, but at least my shit isn't on the verge of being stolen, parted out and burned.
    it takes an average theif 20 hours to strip an entire car.
    in 2 weeks time- my god.

    and if it REALLY takes them 2 weeks to dyno your car, i wouldn't trust them as tuners either.

    and how do you know hes from carrol?

    i'd still be cautious.

    what if they blow it up on the dyno? are they going to pay for that?

    He said if anything happens it will be covered, the only thing that he said they won;t be resposible for is the tranny down the road, because he is saying that in time all the horsepower is gonna wear it down, which is a no brainer...but 400rwhp he said is going to be achived

    i know allot of forum people who had work done here and they are all happy with the results they got from CarrolSupercharing-Blowerwoks...they are making big numbers on their C4's....

    I'm an optimistic person so i guess we just have to see..

    he said 1 -2 to weeks, he has to make some custom pieces to bypass the intercooler plus...

    hey congrats man- hope everything works out

    and not to be a pessimist myself, but just make sure you get everything in writing- Reputable shop or not, you could always get screwed

    but good luck and can't wait to see vids when it's finished :)
