So my car has a litany of problems.
I don't know if I should make a thread for each issue but I'll start with the most pressing, and go from there. The car is a 2011 Mustang GT with an ON3 Performance Twin Turbo installed on it. Here are the complete list of modifications:
SR Performance V2 Coil Over Kit
BMR Front Lower Control A-Arms - Standard Ball Joint - Red
BMR Non-Adjustable Rear Upper Control Arm - Poly Bushing - Red
Ford Performance Traction - LOK Limited Slip Differential w/ Carbon Discs
Injector Dynamics EV14 High Impedance ID1000 Injectors
Kenne Bell Boost-A-Pump (BAP) 40 Amp
On 3 Performance Twin Turbo Kit
On 3 Performance Billet Steel Oil Pump Gears
Does anyone know of any shop in the NYC area that is known for doing Fantastic work with Mustangs that are known for going above and beyond to make sure that every job is done right, and in a timely manner?
It feels like every shop I go to, they just... They're lacking in some department. They don't keep in touch and update me with the information on how the work is going, or what the roadmap is for the work to be completed. Or they just don't do the work properly and I'm left with residual issues, like when I got my MT-82 rebuilt by St. Ann's Auto Repair
I honestly just want these issues resolved. If anyone here has any thoughts on the car's issues, or any shops in the local area (Google Map Of My Local Area
), please let me know. I'm at my wits end.
1) After the installation of the kit, there's a rattling feeling I can feel in the steering wheel after the car's been running for a while. It's more prominent depending on the amount of rotation in the steering wheel. So for example, if the wheel is zeroed out and I turn it... Say 15% of the way to the right, I'll feel a vibration (at idle). I was told it was the Power Steering.
2) After the installation of the kit, the tuner that I was trying to use: API Performance
said that no matter what he did, he couldn't lower the transient fuel. His words were: Tip In is rich, and it's constantly running rich and won't lower no matter what I did to the value.
3) After about 3 weeks of driving with a base tune, with the CEL coming on with codes saying (Bank1 Rich, Bank2 Rich), another flashing CEL came on. I checked again, and it said: (Cylinder 7 Misfire). I then Swapped coils from Cylinder 7 to Cylinder 8, and the CEL came back on saying Cylinder 7 Misfire, Cylinder 8 Misfire. So we did a compression test, and Cylinder 7 has no compression. We squirted some oil in it, and the compression didn't go up or change in the least, so the mechanic that did the work is telling me that he believes there's something wrong with the valves in Cylinder 7.
4) The Exhaust (leading to cats) with the On3 Kit warped within 2 weeks and now I have an exhaust leak, so I have to buy another gasket as a filler to plug the leak.
I made this post not to bash anyone. I just want advice. Knowledge. Thoughts on the issues, and a referral to a shop in the local area that you think is amazing at doing work on performance vehicles that I can bring my car to continually to achieve my dreams of making this a superb race / street car.
Thank you for reading. I apologize if I offended anyone, or... Did something wrong.
