    over the last 12 months and re-written our software.

    These changes in our software will represent a big change in our
    software approach and will bring our software upto the same quality
    standards that our hardware is well known for.

    We will announce this release sometime in the next few months in the
    form of a press release on the internet forums and our website and how
    to obtain the update."
    This is great that they are taking this step. Honestly, about damn time and I'm glad he recognizes the software was a huge problem.

    I'm disappointed it took this long to get this done and also am left with a poor view of GIAC.

    I agree with this but hopefully this will help all their future products and also help the guys who already have the VF kits get some confidence in the tune.

    I will wait and see how this new tune goes before making judgement. I had already spoken to my tuner about doing a tune for STG 2 cars but for now i'll put that on hold.

    Also my car Ecu and SMG ECU have bee shipped to my tuner and review coming on it soon. I'll start a new thread.

    UPDATE:

    One of the last things remaining to do on the car was a valve adjustment. 7 Valves out of spec but not by much at all. Never the less we have ordered the 7 valves and they should be here in a week. The VF parts will be delivered on Sunday or Monday the latest. New filter, SC Belt and SC oil. After the VF parts have been installed and the valves adjusted I'll take the car to the dyno and InshaAllah we should see some good number. I am really looking forward to completing this car and handing it back to the owner all detailed and with a custom car cover! Click here to enlarge

    UPDATE:

    So today the rest of the parts arrived and I set about planning to install them tomorrow.

    Here is the new K&N Filter, SC Belt, Vortech SC Oil and some water wetter for the manifold

    New O2 Sensor

    New Pedal set and footrest from ECS Tuning

    New Boost Gauge
    Click here to enlarge

    New AFR Gauge and install kit

    New Gauge pods

    Spal Electric fan and controller installed perfectly! Notice how clean and well insulated the wiring is...

    Boot Handles installed with proper screws and made to sit flush

    New Filter ready to go in
    Click here to enlarge

    Old filter attached to the intake tube with MAF hosing
    Click here to enlarge

    VF MAF
    Click here to enlarge

    Comparison of old and new filter, the old one was very very clogged up!
    Click here to enlarge

    New Filter installed, housing cleaned and secured to filter and MAF cleaned with MAF Cleaner ready to be installed back into the car tomorrow
    Click here to enlarge

    Another thing we discovered when we removed the intake housing etc was that the VF MAF wiring was not right and was cut in places and the resistor damaged. We replaced all these parts and did an OEM style install of the whole thing Click here to enlarge

    Little pic of the work going on
    Click here to enlarge

    We are still waiting for the 7 valves to arrive to complete the valve adjustment. After that we will remove the bad UMNITZA AE's on the car and return the headlight system to stock with new head light lenses on both sides. Nice and clean.

    Tomorrow the Vortech SC oil will be changed and water wetter added to the VF Manifold and Belt for the SC changed. We are almost there with Mohanad's car and only the tiny things remain. Our plan is to get it all done this week and dyno the car ASAP so that Mo can come down form Kuwait this weekend and test drive his car. More updates as they happen.........

    Dyno will be done very soon. Just tryign to get the AFR gauge to work right.

    We removed the UMNITZA angeleyes and returned everything back to stock, city lights are the small bulbs located in the top corner of your high beam lights. they are only presesnt on Euro Spec cars and all the cars here are euro spec apart from the ones imported by private parties from the USA.

    Bad fitment. The Halos dont even fit the housings properly. Also the wiring was a mess with little resistor boxes and crap. So we removed everything and returned it back to stock.

    The only thing thats killing us now is the new VF Software update as the old one is horrible and is over fueling the car, misfire etc. I will wipe the DME and wait for VF to tell me to send it to them.
