HARMAN MOTIVE has done it again.

Dan and Ian are great guys. They just finished putting in the turbo kit and guages. My first direction was the Blouch Turbo Dominator II but......it turned out to be a defect and would <b>NOT SPOOL UP!</b>. I sent it back to Mike @ Blouch, but refused to refund my $$$. Instead rebuilt it for FREE and shipped it back within 7 days. They blamed it on oil starvation, but with a little research on forums, turns out I wasn't the first customer to be given that excuse by Blouch BOOOOO! Anyways instead of having my car out of commision, Dan suggested a GT30R .82, and turned out to be a great decision. The car made close to 400whp on 91oct, and hoping for 450whp on 100oct. The Harman crew did a AWESEOME job with both installs. They were able to customize my front mount intercooler to fit perfectly with the rotated kit and my JDM foglights. The car runs like a champ and pulls like a motha fker!! I highly recommend Harman Motive for any projects or mods to be installed. and sorry to say but f**k Blouch HAHA.
Thank you guys!~ PICS:

Glad to hear it all worked out, congratulations.. Got any dyno sheets from there yet? Also do you have a stalling problem when clutching in from above 2K rpm? It only happens occasionally but in my case my car will stall occasionally..

Hey man no stalling issues, I did stall one time but it was because my intercooler pipeing popped off while I was romping on it!~ The dyno sheet will be up soon! BTW I made 392whp at 20psi. Race gas tune not done yet. and yea Harman does make sure they get to all they're customers, unlike Blouch I left them 4 messages to see if they re-shipped my turbo, *** never even called me back once. :/

OCE,

Can you let me know what your friend puts down on the DOM II? I still have no doubts that blouch turbo will make insane power.

It's unfortunate that Blouch d!icked you over even when you purchased the turbo straight from them. And its even more unfortunate that others had to experience the same situation you did. I'm surprised no one else made a stink about it yet. But on the other hand, looks like karma goes both ways. You got great results with your setup in the end!

Sweet numbers, have fun with your setup!

Looks good! What FMIC is that, and, do you have any pics of the FMIC and tubing with the front bumper cover removed? Thanks
