Sorry, im new to cars, that just strikes me as odd...
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:
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.
