Crazy, read thru all the post at this link

http://www.theturboforums.com/smf/in...amp;board=10.0

You will see that HP and PTK make good kits but have AWEFUL customer service
and delivery problems.

Turbo companies have gotten so bad with customer service that turbomustangs.com
set up a whole forum section just for people to bitch.

haha thats funny.... who has good customer service then??
From the thread in that section it looks like Ponydown isn't bad at all.

If you are worried aboust the block holding up just buy a d.s.s. main support it requires no machine work to the caps and almost doubles the strenghth of the bottom end. That is whatI did when I installed my V-1 @ 9#s of boost. I have not had any problems at all.

Don't forget to think of all of the other things you're going to have to upgrade with that kind of power. Beyond just the motor

That does nothing to strength block, just keeps crank from walking at high rpm
