Hey Guys, got the fusion key today, and "It Works" I was able to program it and all the remote functions work just have to get the key cut tomorrow.

The Halloween thing is fantastic, especially when you're there with some girls. When we went they had people going around with chainsaws (sans blade) cranking them up behind people and scaring the absolute $h!t outta people. It was great.

Cool deal. I wonder if you might accidentally hit the alarm or something on accident.

Cool! Man I wish this worked on the '05-'06 models... *sigh*

Yes! One of my friends ended up punching one of the chainsaw guys cause he popped out of the bush and it was like a reflex for my friend... Oops... But it was a ton of fun! I want to go back, hopefully in the next year or two! Last time I went, they had 'the Director' as the main guy for the Event...

Thanks LEO. Canton tanks will most likely be ordered tomorrow.

While everything is apart and drained, it' an opportune time for this upgrade.

Tom2- I do like the air/air cooler you had, just wanted to keep within budget. May be a possible upgrade in the future, but I dont see doing it right now.

Brian- Wheels and tires will come. No reason why I can't have those little extras plus new rubber. Really hope to see the Shelby wheels in 18's over at Knotts. If they're not to my liking, either it'll be 20's or another wheel style.

George- Good deal on the Fusion key! I'll have to check it out later.

Oh well, at least mine will be lubed up with Mobil 1!

I'm not sweating it. When i first started to read your post my heart dropped thinking something really good was released. If I wanted self-lubricated I would have gone with Paxton.

$500... intercooler/aftercooler mod money.

(Per Fluidyne Tech Support)
The original radiator has a single row core, with approximately 3/4 inch tubes. So, the FLUIDYNE radiator has approximately twice the surface area for much more efficient heat transfer.

Among the advantages in using a FLUIDYNE radiator are the fact that it is a 2-row radiator with 1 inch tubes, so it has substantialy more surface area than a stock radiator. It is all aluminum with a furnace brazed core. It is a true Direct-Fit replacment, and will allow you to re-use all of the stock components, such as fan, etc.

Like Leo said already. Sales pitch. It does look nice but at what cost? It sure does look nice though. I've looked into them myself for just bragging reasons.

Man I want one. My keys in bad shape. I wouldn't mind a new sleek key...

I know man. Hopefully something surfaces where 05-06's get something.

I never thought I'd say this. Bill you've been hanging around Luis too much. Your spending faster then he is now! haha You talk of some budget? What budget, lol.

I think the 18's in chrome will look killer. Even the 20's wont be bad. Least you got them D-specs to help. Hopefully I can get some for the summer or sooner. Who knows.

Pretty nifty. But like Tom said. I'm proud to be a Floridian! No tacky plates!



UPDATE on S/C... (VENT)

There is none. The shop owner/tech/sales rep(one man band) is very very VERY slow at getting back with me. Called his yesterday after a week of not hearing form him to talk about getting a formal qoute on some gauges. He said he'd get back with me today. Nothing. Called him about 45mins before the shop closes left a message in a not-so-good mood and no call back. Dissapointed in the customer service I've recieved post payment. Its been 3 weeks today since initial order. I know it took Bill 2 weeks to get his and you all live in the state it's shipped from and I'm on the other coast. I can understand that. But this lack or communication isn't earning him my future bussiness if this keeps up. I'll give him an hour after shop opens before I call. If he doesn't answer I'll be knocking at his door. I shouldn't have to do this.

He just moved shops during the month of Feburary, so I know he's backed up for being closed down so long. He runs the entire shop alone and is working on 2-3 cars right now. With that said.... Am I wrong in being annoyed for the lack of communication? Or is this just life and he's a busy man and I should be more understanding?

(/VENT)

Thanks.

For something as expesive as this is, you're totally right in trying to get him on the phone. I'd be going crazy.

Hey! So now I'm a bad guy for spending... you guys started it. Besides, Bill is a whole different ball game.

George - my fusion key also came in the mail today. I think I'm going to run outside and do it soon. For some reason I cannot find the spare key Glad I bought when I did.

Bill - Congrats on the mods. Leo knows just what to say to get them out of you.

Leo - Can you get the key? i.e. is it an 07? If it is... it doesn't cost much compared to what you usually spend.

Jon - I would be going nuts a week ago. Hopefully it gets better soon. Either way, before you know it, you'll be complaining about traction issues

Jon: I'd go down to the shop and talk to your guy directly and clearly explain your expectations from him on keeping you in the know. You'll just frustrate yourself even further if you don't. Also, establish some sort of timeline for the work on your car.

You're not scheduling an oil change, you dropped some major coin for a S/C install, so get the customer satisfaction treatment you deserve.

I'm deff going to his shop today. I've played cool long enough. I have plans for a total engine rebuild and if he expects to get that kinda bussiness I need to see good service now. Anyways...

What Luis said... I think its a compliment. haha

Man I plans to wash my car today then head off to the beach but its raining over here and a slight cold front came through. boo hoo Now I have to find some other plans now, indoors

Keep us updated on the S/C.

Don't stay on TMS longer than you have to, it'll just make you spend more money.

I'm already ruined.. will be buying more stuff later today.

Nope I got an 06. Trust me if I had an 07 I would've ordered when George posted the link.
