I did see all the negative reviews and comments and made "MY" decision to go with RX based on what I personally know of them. Like they said, "it's True, I saw it on the Internet!
" Of course people seems to think it is.
If it turns out bad, no one to blame but myself, right!
As far as RX is concerned, here is a story:
Back some years ago I was doing a build for my Mustang. I was building a 4.6 .020 bored with Patriot stage 2 heads, Comp stage 2 cams, all forged internals with 9.0:1 compression for high boost. I was looking for shops in or close to NJ. I saw a review on a forum about Crazy Horse racing and it was basically a horror story. I thought the same thing you said...that it might just be internet BS, and everyone has a story, and this guy is lying, and I'll take my chances, and all that. So like an idiot I went and dropped my car off with all my parts and guess what...
Well to be short I ended up losing TWO of my 95mm MAF sensors at his shop. They just "disappeared". The car sat there for 2 months. The first couple weeks he said he was busy working on other vehicles. Another week he couldn't do the install because he didn't have tools to install the cams. So he had to ship my engine to a machine shop for the cams. That took 2 more weeks. Then he got it back and his mechanic was out. Then they finally got to work on the engine install. They had trouble getting the engine into the bay, they put the wrong timing cover on, they never bolted the exhaust up to the headers, they shredded my AC lines, they broke my heater core, my clock spring in the steering wheel was broken, they forget my throttle spring in the shop, they never put the plugs in the heads, they ripped my crankshaft position sensor, and they didn't mount the engine onto the motor mounts properly.
So THEN guess what happened. I bolted the exhaust up and fixed the crank position sensor. I had no idea about the other crap they pulled at the time, including the missing plugs on the heads. So I primed the engine and started it only to find out a couple minutes later that oil was pouring out the back of the engine...the plugs would have stopped that. By the time I shut the engine off the damage was done. The bearings were all fried. So the engine lasted about 6 weeks before the internal oil leak became severe. And since I had a blower on the car I decided not to take a chance in damaging the rest of the engine AND the Vortech. So that engine came out and is now in engine heaven.
Sorry for the long story. But it just goes to show you that you're asking for trouble when you don't take heed of warnings. And when it comes to engines, it can cost you a LOT of money and time. That engine costed me about $4,000 not including the install. ANd after the fact, EVERY shop I went to and EVERY gear head I talked to told me something bad about Crazy Horse. Nobody had anything nice to say about that guy...his name is Chris Winters BTW.
So you can take a chance. I personally hope that your car will be one of the ones with a good ending. Good luck, keep us all posted.
But I don't think you should be driving that around without a proper dyno tune. Just some advice. Are you at least keeping an eye on your AFR and timing?
