Screws, bolts, same idea. I was frustrated when writing that and made a simple mistake, you don't have to act clueless.

looks like they did some work on your clutch and shifter and shif tboot n such.. exhaust work, added thermostat, electric water pump, problems with the belt because you switched to an electric water pump with a KB so it's an unusual size they had to figure it out..

I must have hit some keys wrong because I came up with a total of 7226.67 - 1570 equals you owed them 5656.67

installing all of the wiring for all of those gauges isn't cheap.. the GT500 fuel pumps + fuel injectors set you back a good amount. they did rape you on the cost of the mid pipe though.. 339? those should be aorund $100 (for off-road).. it probably has cats though since most shops can't install a catless midpipe.. so.. just a waste of money anyway, but priced correctly.


i dunno looks legit to me.. engine bay is alright for a shop job.. you want some custom hidden wire job or what? have some before pics of what it looked like right before you gave it to them?


Looks like the only problem that Might be real is the tune.. which happens frequently.. especially if they were tuning it for a bit of N2o.. plus 11psi plus your headers and new injectors.. can be rough.. could try to get it tuned somewhere else and ask them to take the tuning charges off (550)

I agree with modular depot's assessment that your fuel system was incomplete for what you were wanting to do.. the fuel pumpers and bigger injectors were what you needed.


oh guess it what happened one time.. i went to drive my car after having someone switch out my drag radials and i stopped and checked the lugs and 1 on both wheels had been missed, could be hand removed.. omg.. i was freaking out.. omg. not really.. it happens. big whoop.. get pissed when they forget to put the lugs on or tighten any of them down.

and the radiator cover was causing your heat issues, they were doing you a favor.

oh looks like they also did suspension + an alignment..
Geez, are you the Modular Depot groupie to be sticking up for them so much?

Yes, they had to figure out the belt size, that is their job, to install everything.

The balance due on their system was wrong, and yes, you must have hit some keys wrong cause that is the wrong total.

And yes, it is a catless mid pipe, don't make assumptions without knowing the facts. It is a Bassani off road x-pipe to go with their long tube headers.

And when they do work like this:

Click the image to open in full size.

and charge me that much, then yes, I expect a clean looking engine bay. Why do I get singled out?

And the tune they had did not even use the nitrous, the nitrous system was not even completely hooked up! They were working on tuning the car for about a month, they had plenty of time to figure out what was wrong. I got lots of run arounds and first needed the mafia because the car was 'tuned out', then I needed the thermostat because it was getting hot. Notice how those items are towards the end of the invoice? That's because those were added while trying to get it tuned right. In the end, they got it as close as they could to pass it off as a decent tune.

And bigger fuel injectors were already in the picture. Lethals fuel system was basically a GT500 system on steroids, so I don't know why you think their 'assessment' was accurate.

Yet, you say I must not know what I'm doing and need to trust the professionals, yet you are the one having SOMEONE ELSE switch out your drag radials? Nuff said.

I never even got my radiator cover back. Seems to me they misplaced it and just try to pass it off.

There was no suspension work done to the car.

The A/F gauge on a dyno is much more accurate then the one in my car, wideband or not. I wanted to see the specs it was showing during THEIR dyno session WHILE it was being tuned, not afterwards as I was driving it.

You try to act like you know what you are talking about, but it doesn't seem like you know much. I did my research, so don't try and step on my toes and think I don't know my stuff.

Hey, OP.

Serious question.

With hindsight being 20/20 and all, what would you do now, given it to do all over again?

thanks.

what pic is that of? looks like the polished whipple.. not the KB that is in your engine bay.. i asked for before and after pics so we can see how badly they did.. for all we know it looked like *** when you brought it to them.. you expect them to fix a screwed up engine bay? i didn't see the labor charge for re-running existsing lines.

btw... depending on how they do their AFR reading and your gauge install it could be(and likely is) exactly the same as what you have on your gauge..

I know that many people go online and bitch about stuff w/o working out with the company, w/o telling both sides, and we are just supposed to assume that you are right, that modular depot sucks when 1000s of other customers have had a great experience? obviously something is missing here.

did you post this on their forum too?

edit:

if you read their notes from the drop off it says that that tire was flat and you had tons of body damage to it and you had a **** load of work done.. entire new driveline.. engine, transmision, driveshaft, fuel system, nitrous, suspension, tune, new radiator, cutouts, slave cylinder, 5 gauges installed.. ricers alwyas need more gauges.. sounds like your car was a pile of **** when you brought it to them. $5k for all that work is probably cheaper than other shops would have charged. sounds like you drove the **** out of yoru car, screwed it up.. had them try to fix all of it. did you cut a portion of your invoice? i added again and it still isn't coming up to 8k.. modular depot probably does it the way most shops do it, charge you for the average install time for each item by the book, not how long it actually took.. that is very common practice.


anyway.. looks like you said modular depot said they'll fix your complaints.. which are.. tune and wiring? no biggie.. whining to everyone about a couple little things isntead of working it out with the shop first is another reason i'm like.. pffftt who cares what this joker has to say... we don't even have any video proof of how poorly his car ran..

Depending on who's o/r midpipe you buy it may be more than $100-110 for it. The pypes one is cheap but Kooks will charge you a lot more than they do. It might be a better pipe though. The pypes needs a clamp to hold together.

Regardless of how the car showed up that wiring job is ****-poor. My install doesn't look the greatest but still blows that work right out of the water.

And the labor charges on some of that crap... wow.

PS Mishri: The OP's pic on the first page. Look at the wire on the rear against the firewall with no loom around it. That was MD that screwed that up brother. Part of the KB install is to relocate that wire. They did the relocation part but they didn't even bother putting loom around it when they were finished. Very, very crappy job.

You like to assume things a lot, don't you?

That pic is of ANOTHER car they did. I didn't think it was that hard to make sense of that pic? I brought them the car with an EMPTY engine bay, and no transmission. So all the work that they did, was from scratch.

And where are these thousands of people that are happy with their work? After posting this around the internet, I keep finding more and more disgruntled customers. Look at their BBB rating: http://www.bbb.org/cincinnati/busine...t-ky-10003419/

That says a lot right there.

No, I didn't post this on their forum. They would have took it off. I posted a picture of my engine bay on their facebook and asked when this mess was going to get fixed. Had a lot of comments on it and then come Monday, MD deleted it from their page.

And if you think of my car as a pile of ****, then your car must be a pile of douche waste... I'd take my car over yours any day, running or not.

And how is 5 gauges in a race car ricey? A/F, boost, oil pressure, nitrous pressure, and a shift light. Sorry I like to know what is going on with my car.

You don't have to try and back up Modular Depot out of jealousy that you can't build your car like mine is. 95% of the parts I brought then were brand new so there should be NO issues with my car. And out of everyone that has looked at the invoice online, you are the ONLY person that thinks what they charged me was OK for the work they did.

Here is what it looked like when it was dropped off there. Doesn't look like a lot of body damage to me does it? The 1/4 panel window got broke when I had to tow it home three years ago when I blew the stock block. Wax residue and a couple scratches is normal for a car that is driven.

And another shot after everything was installed:

http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fb...id=80334178561

Greg agreed on picking up the car, fixing the issues, and delivering it free of charge. Also, there is going to be some sort of partial refund. You think he would agree to this if they believed they did good work on my car? He, his whole shop, and everyone reading the topics I posted know the work they did on my car was poor quality and that I was overcharged. So I don't know whats stuck up your ***, maybe it's the fact that you wish you had what I have in my car in yours.

As I told Greg, I will gladly post in these topics what the final resolution is.

If they **** up again, then it is going to court, for the whole amount charged. Obviously the courts would be on my side if they could not fix the problems after having the car two different times.

Good luck with getting everything fixed OP. I saw your other thread on the other board as well. If they make good on this and you are happy with the results I'd make sure to post back and let us all know. Likewise if they drop the ball... again.

Aere are some pics as promised. The coolant tank bracket was $90 and the I/C pump bracket was $140 if I remember correctly.

As for the nitrous system, well they mounted the bottle on my false floor which is what I wanted, but they didn't reinstall the false floor supports at all. They just stacked all my sound system pieces on top of each other and cracked my false floor. So not only do I have to get a new false floor made, that was not very safe for me to drive around like that. The trunk is literally untouched from when I picked it up from them besides me removing a box and moving some pieces around so you guys could see. Some of the wiring in the wheel well is from my sound system though, just fyi.

his car is silver with yellow valve covers.. and he put NNAWWWZZ on his car for cooling his intercooled 11psi KB.. because we all know how notorious those crapy superchargers are for heat problems.
