Won't Mike's car be a little more reliable than HK's? I thought HK was having constant issues with his set-up?

Not trying to be a dick, just curious.

I am not sure if I recall correctly what you said about your brother's car in a past thread, but if he has an SN95 Cobra he will need to custom fab up some stuff for the trans crossmember if he goes with rectangular subframes. He can avoid the trans crossmember modification if he goes tubular.

Very nice #'s. I have heard nothing but good about Tim and Mr. Norms. I'm sure you will love the work. If you don't have one yet, I see solid rear end in your future if you're going to sticky tires.

Awesome Mike........yes, that's the unmistakeable sound of a Whipple. Quiet whistle at idle, nice whine but not a crazy scream at WOT like the KB has.

Tim just e-mailed me that all the driveability tuning is done now and my car is ready to be picked up too. I got a ride set up to take me there Saturday, but after seeing this I may need to find a way to get up there this afternoon and pick it up. This post is making me too impatient to wait until Saturday.

I love going to the shop. Always end up shooting the shit with him.

Both him and his wife are just super nice people.

Agree 100%. His brother Andy (mechanic) is also super nice and extremely competent with these cars.

When it comes to performance shops, they have to be one of the best when it comes to an all-around great place to deal with (especially from a customer service standpoint).

The reason they're always so busy/backed-up is that everybody just wants to spend time there BS'ing (like you said), learning, watching, etc.

They rock.

If I brought them headers would they install them, or do you have to buy the parts through them as well?
Any rough idea on how much a dyno tune on the dynamometer is and downloaded to my xcal2?

You do not need to purchase parts through them in order to use their services on an install.

I echo the words of some folks here... Tim is a great guy, does great work / knows his stuff and has the patience of a saint.

If he wasn't all those things... People wouldn't be flying him 1/2 way around the world to work / tune their cars.

They really do great work. Tim and crew installed/tuned my car with the KB six years ago. The car is still running strong and safe.
