    Am I getting shafted at the shop I go to ?

    I have a 2013 mustang gt . The guy i brought it to was extremely uninterested in helping me with questions, and after my bolt ons I feel like i am not getting my cars full potential .
    My mods are O/R x-pipe , flowmaster axel back , 4.10 gears, boss intake mani , jlt cf CAI , and had it dynod . My car made 417 RWHP but he said the day was hot and i probobly would be at 430 on a fair weathered day . Is my car getting about right for my mods ?

    It is texas and is always hot, so that is your car's potential.

    I hate the weather excuse in Texas,

    Sounds perfectly normal for your mods. What are you expecting?

    You're running a stock 2013 with a Intake, CAI and an offroad pipe. Did you think that would add a 100 hp?
    Yes it's hot and yes it will hurt hp numbers slightly.
    If it runs good then it should be fine the way it is.
    The cost of a retune at another shop you could actually spend on something that would net you more hp. Full exhaust, nitrous kit, converter, tons of options.
    417 RWHP is about right. You might get a few more or less depending on the dyno used, temps, too many variables.

    IMO those are good numbers and we are always looking for more.

    The bottom line is the customer service. If you're not happy with HOW you're treated then move on to a shop where you can feel supported and informed.
    There are plenty of shops around that can fit your needs.
    You're in Sugar Land and right by Auto Adrenaline Performance or a little further is Dyno Joe Performance off Hempstead highway.

    There's Dilusi Motorsports here in Katy and if you want to make the drive there's Chris Car Doc's who are sponsors on this forum.

    Good luck and let us know how it goes.

    Ok thanks guys ! Just wasnt sure if I was where I was supposed to be . The manifold has helped on the top end for sure and it feels pretty strong right now. Just ordered long tubes and a new shorty o/r x pipe and stage 3 comp cams. Hopefully I can get some mor improvement from that . Does anyone know about the stage 3 cams yet ? Im praying for 40 horses with the long tubes and the cams . Is that ridiculous ?
