I'm seeing that most people are choosing the PFS Stage 1 over the SRT Stage 2. Wouldn't the obvious choice be SRT? I really don't see why people are choosing the PFS, since SRT'S Stage 2 is also cheaper than the PFS stage 1. And doesn't the SRT's stage 2 have about 30-40 more rwhp than the PFS's stage 1?

PRO's/CON's?

Based on historical customer service data posted on this site...

SRT - Not so good.
PFS - A+++++++

The PFS v. SRT topic has been beaten to death, reincarnated, and beaten again. Then we dug it up one more time, just to beat it to death for yet another time. Please call SRT and PFS to discuss your needs and options with the tuners to determine what is best for you.

PFS - (703)368-7959

SRT - (301)982-4600

But, you have valid points about price and performance. However, these are issues I would bring up with the tuners themselves in evaluating which turbo kit is right for you. The Go Fast forum will not be able to help you with this- their track record speaks for itself.

I'm watching this thread- the SECOND it turns into a tuner-bashing thread, it's gone. If you feel like providing helpful info to this guy, that's one thing. I have a feeling this thread will be short-lived, however.

I think both tuners (as well as some others) have had their fare share of negative experiences with a few customers here and there, just some spread the dirt all all over the forums and some don't.

There are many pro's and con's for each of those tuners that you had questions about and like doublins said...its probably best to give each of them a call and ask as many questions as you can! Try and get a feel for the tuner! Then make a decision based on that...not necessarily on how other customer's experiences may not have gone so smoothly...remember, not everything can be perfect, especially in the tuning world. Good luck man!

I don't have a turbo because I have been considering a supercharger, but from what I heard Peter is a really cool guy and does an excellent job if he installs the turbo.

I like both SRT and PFS, they both know their stuff...but PFS did feed me hotdogs and burgers...and SRT has yet to plan a BBQ :-? , so based on that alone PFS gets one bonus point from me.

Come on Mo, you need to start buying my love. :)

Yeah you're full of ideas, but "good" isn't the word I'd use to describe them.
