Lol, i can testify as well, he couldn't get a tune right since 2006 when he did my GTO, and i'm very inclined to say even before that. I've fixed a couple of his mistakes and watched many more since 2006, if you look at my very first posts in this forum, you'll find a little chat i had with him

We have done a couple in house installs, at this point it looks as if we will only offer the kit installed by VMS

Troy, the Kit would fit and work but you would have to use the turbo headers. if you have any questions on it please feel free to call me at the shop.

It has been a year since they even stepped foot in the thread the former owner made to promote it...

We have actually had some local intrest in the kit. As far as being produced as a ready to install kit, doesnt look like that will happen. Thanks for your support

Kirk has not tuned a car at VMS since 2009. I have handled all in shop tuning since 2009, and remote tuning since 2010.
