Default New to Area, Supercharged 01 Mustang GT

I'm looking to do a full returnless to return conversion and to get an alkycontrol meth system installed. Performance Autosports can do it, but they are quoting me at ~18 hours @ 95/hr, which seems rediculously high. Does anyone know of any shops that can do the install? I have an SCT tuner.

think of it this way; Do you want it done correctly or cheaply?
If PA does the work it'll get done right the first time.

18 hours including tuning for the meth? Sounds fair.

The return system I can see taking 8 hours b/c you have to drop the tank and all, but they quoted me 8 hours on the meth setup and 2-3 for dyno time. 8 hours to run a couple of lines (we're using the windshield washer tank to house the meth), drill a hole into the tubing and a setup few switches in the dash?

Yea, I guess, that's why I was reaching out to you guys to get your 2 cents.




The thing that bothers me is that PA is the only shop that's actually responsive. I talked to Mike Roush at midatlantic and he said he could do it for under 1k, but he just stopped responding. I'm hesitent about working with anyone who can't take the 2 minutes to get back to me. Those are the only two with a dyno that I could find (using google map search) in the 804 area.

Performance Autosports has a very good reputation in this town for a reason, I'd go down and talk them in person and I'm sure they'd walk you through why it should take 18 hours.

PA does amazing work, they run the shop right and sometimes that level of professionalism will cost you a little more, they have to make a living too..

I agree with this. Even though I personally havn't dealt with them, I've heard great things.

Ok great, thanks for everyone's feedback. I had my car tuned by EB3 motorsports up in Manassas, VA and it has been headache after headache. I had PTV contact last summer, and had them rebuild it with forged internals. I just got my car back after 9 months and have had issues ever since. The tune has my car running pig rich (around 10) at 4k, then it leans out back to 12.5 by 6k. I dyno'd at 381hp, which seems low for all the work I've got done to it.

I've got heads ported (large port), stage 2 comp cams, 5.0 stroker assembly and am running 10-12lbs of boost though a Procharger P1SC w/3" pulley.

Just went to look at the pulley the other day and it ate a rib off. I think my idler isn't aligned right.

Here's another pic
