Yeah, I know about Monsta Torque.

Car is still in NSW, and it's being tuned at BTA Motorsports.

If I need further tuning later when the car is back in WA, I will look at either XFT or Monsta Torque.

I made 405 rwhp / 298 rwkw at 12 psi, and approx 711 nm of torque, with more in it ...but the supposedly new Siemens Deka 60lb injectors I recently bought were really hampering anything higher, apparently fluctuating up to 30% of their duty cycles, which probably explains why Tuff Car Parts were selling them off so cheap, lol.

So, injector replacement & re-tune definitely on the cards, but I can sort that when I get the car back. The tuner reckons I'll see 330-350 rwkw quite easily after that..

However, Jacob reckons the car is driving beautifully now, and lets rip VERY nicely, haha 8-)

gotta love the e series for a canvas, perfect for cruises and quite obviously, power. :twisted:
a slight tone down on the black wouldn't hurt, but at the same time, gives an agressive look, which it can back up.
what you thinkin about for interior wise?

Thanks mate.

Yeah, definitely toning down some of the airbrushing.

Interior-wise, just a nice seat retrim in Black / Grey, keeping a consistent theme ...and a stereo revamp, once again nothing mega :wink:

Hey Mark,

This is Justin from Tuff Car Parts. We stand by EVERY one of our customers, and our products so I'd like to see any issue through to a resolution.

If there is an issue, contact us - we are here to help. There is more to this story I can assure you.

The injectors you were supplied, as with everything we sell was BRAND NEW and GENUINE.

30% variation is a VERY big fluctuation, and for a claim that high it would be nice to see some flow test figures. If they are genuinely out, they will be replaced under warranty, no questions asked. As we said to you with every order you placed, "please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any problems."

Some tuners will simply blame injectors for other problems, some tuners will tell a customer any injector that the customer supplies is rubbish simply so they can supply their own product instead, and some tuners simply do not like Siemens Deka injectors - search on the XR6T forums, there is plenty of info around on these injectors, and also plenty of info around why some tuners do not like them.

Thanks,

Justin.

Sorry Justin, I obviously spouted off when I shouldn't have done ...and thanks for the offer.

The truth is, the tune didn't go off as smoothly as we hoped ...see http://www.pertheseries.com/forums/inde ... 00&st=1280
so I was a little stressed at the time, and only going by what the tuner was telling me ...and I'd be the first to admit that he probably didn't give things his due care & attention, and there is always the possibility that the injectors could have been a convenient scape-goat for a shortcoming or two..

I guess the only way to confirm his claim is to have the injectors flow-tested ...and go from there.

Apologies mate :oops:

Hi Mark,

Thanks for your time over the phone on Monday afternoon. There is no need to apologize at all, if there is an issue we want to see it resolved and you as the customer happy with the product and service that you received.

Straight up, as mentioned I was a little taken aback that you felt you couldn't contact us initially before claiming the injectors were secondhand (which of course they were not). All of your previous enquiries via email, ebay and PM were all answered promptly, politely and thoroughly, and I'm sure that you will agree that all of your orders were handled professionally with advice, progress updates and automatic delivery tracking as all part of the service that any of our customer's receive.

All of that aside, I really appreciate your time on the phone and it was good to hear some more info about the build. There are certainly a few factors at play and as advised further investigation of the issue is recommended. I would strongly recommend not to be driving the car until we resolve this potential issue.

As we discussed, if you can send the injectors back to us, we will have them independently flow tested. If the injectors are faulty or out of spec then they will be replaced no questions asked. Given the time and distance constraints involved, I do understand that this may not be possible immediately!

Siemens injectors, as with most other brands of injectors on the market have a factory flow tolerance of +/- 5% and if they are outside of that window, they will be deemed as out of spec and will of course be covered by warranty!

Anyhow, keep in touch!

Thanks,

Justin.
Tuff Car Parts.
