As many of you know I’ve had some set backs over the last couple of years and actually thought hard about getting out of the platform. Probably lucky I don’t fit in anything else these days.

So I finally decided to bite the bullet, eat some humble pie and ship the car to Cicio at TSM.

TSM is in the final stages of building a new 4.1 stroker and will top it off with a set of Elite Primes.

The GTX3582R Gen IIs kick ass but figured why not add a little bit more power since it is in for an overhaul anyways.

Looking forward to turn the page and get a reliable car in the process.

I'll post some pictures in here when the engine is finished as we assemble!  

 

Dave you are going to be blown away with the drivability and spool difference... not to mention you will make probably 200 more HP than you did before LOL

 

 

Thank you so much for entrusting us to get the car running right with one of our engines and turbo systems.  You have been a joy to work with.

 

 

Can't wait until you are enjoying it!

Droptopp, with all the drama that has been your life for so long, I don't know if you will be able to handle having a car that runs correctly and is a pleasure to drive again.  But I'm sure you will get used to it. :)

 

This whole AMS debacle just amazes and saddens me.  It is so sad to see how that company has changed from it's heydays.

I've had the pleasure of being around a fair number of Elite Plus cars and a few Elite Prime cars,  the one thing that always sticks out is the back to back to back passes the cars make and the owners getting out of the cars with smiles on their faces.   Hope your expectations are met and you get a trouble free car.

Non-class primes should be a blast on the street.

Last prime dyno I saw the hp curve was flat enough to eat off and that spool.....

Congrats Dave!  I'm excited for ya bro!  Can't wait to see the Dragy times you post with your TSM setup!  Since you got the 4.1, I'm guessing you went with the biggest Prime setup?

What’s going on with AMS? Can you elaborate? I haven’t been into the tuner scene as much past couple years but I thought they were still leading the pack with ETS.

Just read this thread and the thread droptop made in the Vendor Reviews section,  no need to bring up the drama in here again.   Bullet points....

 

-Does AMS have an issue currently with their engine program or do they not?

-Does Droptops former installer and tuner know what they are doing?

-3 engines and still couldnt get the car to work correctly, turned into a finger pointing game.

-Droptop just wants to enjoy his car at this point.

The engine that recently was sent back to AMS by "droptopp" had suffered damage from a broken spark plug which was confirmed with a microscope to see the embedded porcelain in the piston. Coincidentally when we received it back it didn't have spark plugs in it.

 

I would be interested to find out who pulled that spark plug out and didn't say anything..
