I think you dont know what you are doing and you need to trust the profesionals.. obviously if you knew what you were doing you would have done it yourself. 2 lug nuts should always be only hand tightened on the driver side rear tire on the s197 GT, it helps with wheel hop.
also.. with the KB why add nitrous just do a pulley swap? people frequently report issues trying ot run both on the 3v.. the bap is a boost a pump right like the KB BAP for your stock fuel pumps? I haven't heard of too many people needing to boost the GT500 fuel pumps.. what sort of rwhp and tq numbers are you pushing and how big is the shot of nawwwzz.
what all did they do for 8 grand? install nitrous? sounds like with your custom sound system it was a pita for them to work on it.
I know what I'm doing and could've done the install with some help, but I don't have the time, tools, or space to do it. And they didn't leave the lug nuts like that to eliminate wheel hop lol. I had a 2 hour drive back, that'd be dumb of anyone to do.
And I chose to do a small shot of nitrous on top of the blower for cooling purposes. It'd be a 35 shot, or 50 shot, at most, so nothing insane. And yes, the Boost a Pump is a KB BAP. And the GT500 fuel pumps are only good til about 600 rwhp, my goals were for more than that. My sig info is old, that is before the build.
And I will post the invoice for you to see what they did and what they charged me, and the picture shows it all.

Weather you want to give OP a hard time or not that is a crap *** job on that engine. Im sorry if I own a shop take Im taking some damn pride in my work. I do not think you would see that coming from Brenspeed, Kurgan or JPC.
And trust me, the stereo did not make it a pita. The sound system was maybe a total of 5 boards bolted together to make a nice looking box, thats all. They had no trouble removing it from the car
Why didn't you go over the damage with them when the car first got to them? that should've been the first thing you did when you got there, and had them give you a copy.
I understand your frustration, there's a place here in town that I took my car to a couple times, but once I caught on to them sucking major *** at what they do, I changed shops, couldn't be happier.
I have a hard time leaving my car with anyone, especially for heavy duty work. The only reason I did or would is because I have no room to work on mine in my apartment complex.
My reccomendation would be to find a local shop that you really DO trust, have them document everything wrong, and fix it, and then send Modular Depot the bill. If they refuse to pay, take them to court.
The new shop will easily be able to testify about what was done incorrectly and what they had to do to fix it.
I like the line, cheap 5w30 oil.. then just above it the royal purple..
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..
LOL @ the cheap 5W-30, can't believe you would actually write the word cheap on the estimate. Usually, I just write the brand, and that is only some of the time. I wish I could write a estimate like that, maybe then I could go from hourly to commission...
