hmm...what kind of mechanic did you go to? was it just a normal mechanic that doesnt work with/tune computers? because that could be the problem. from what i understand after the physical install of the greddy kit the car wil run but not anywhere near as good as it should. bring your car to a tuner and get the emange tuned correctly. if the install part was doen correctly, this should solve your problem.

Yeah, it's called Garage Keeper's Legal Liability Coverage.. every shop that does work on a customer's car has to have it (or they run the risk of having to pay it themselves). But it basically covers a customer's car while it's in their possession for work or repairs. So, it would cover the scratched bumper.

Sorry about the botched job, that stinks! It sounds like the didn't tune it at all after the install.

I've heard good things about RPM, hopefully they can help you out.

RPM.... I stopped by the shop about a month ago and they were doing a Greddy turbo on an FG2. They have also done the Comptech supercharger with zero issues. Highly recommended
