btw I posted because i thought the way your fuel system is being done is going to cost you extra money for no benifit. Not once did I mention about who is doing what work and done what work, I don't care who does what on your car.
I orignally had been quoted by Andy to go for a syvecs at the time i did not have the money to rebuild the engine and go for a syvecs.

Sub boy had a VIPEC v88 ecu for sale a few weeks/month later which i asked Andy before i brought it if it were ok to go ahead and buy it. Andy gave me the thumbs up and i went ahead and brought it and he told me that Pat @ Scoobyclinic would Map it.
ViPec (Higher spec version of Link G4) R32/R33 Skyline and GT-R Plug In ECU

But now whats being made of it all, Is that because i didn't go for the Syvecs he couldn't finish the fuel system.

I was also given incorrect time frames with the build i was asking in November 2014 whether my car would be ready by Xmas i got told Yes by Rich@AMT, Xmas came no sign of my car.

2015 January
My insurance had now run out on the car i get told end of the month i will have my car back (So i renew my insurance with Sky Insurance)

End of Feb same story, Its not till Early/Mid March i got so fed up with the stories i pulled the plug on the project and called Richard @ Exclusive tuning up.

What a mess! But if they can't map it they did the right thing and said so.

Bob hope you get a resolution and get the car back on the road for summer.

Too bad, Andy is a fantastic engine builder, ive seen his work, he built my engine and did the headwork too. I enjoy his attention to detail, for a one man show, I personally can understand the time limitations, guess not everyone can.

Good luck with the car, ive heard good things about Richard too. Hopefully he will meet your time constraints and give you want you want.

Still waiting for my Top Secret Engine Plaque and Coilpack cover that AMT/Richard seem to be holding onto for some unknown reason. Matty32 can confirm our transaction i also have pictures to confirm just incase Richard denies he has it.

Sounds like you're having a nightmare with these guys.

It's always the same, quick to take your money, but after sales service is some what lacking, not a professional outlet or individuals in this case it would seem.
