Comments: It was a tuner kit off ebay, and it sat in the garage for a year before I got around to installing it. I had to download the latest install instructions from the website, and there are absolutely NO TORQUE SETTINGS! This is not good, How the hell tight is too tight?? Customer Service from Vortech sucked, they are jacka$$, and no help. I was missing parts and spent many trips to hardware store, and a couple months finding the correct belt. The kit layout is lame, I had to little work arounds here and there to get it to install correctly. Yes, the battery is in the bumper. This is not cool if you try to pass inspection at the track. Luckily, Joe at Tricktuners is helping me get it dialed in.

Stay the 'ell away from Vortech!
