man...don't part it out because of someone else's screw up. Step back, cool off, then decide. A buddy of mine spent 3 yrs building a car, it smoked after the build (he thought the motor blew) parted it out and at the end of the day...regretted not finding out for sure.
I had an FI car I built, it ran a bit lean so I never got to crank the boost...I sold it. I regret it.
because their motto is that once its sold, its not theirs anymore.
Reminds me of stories I heard about a company called Karzundpartz back in the late 70's/early 80's. The marketing base of BMW owners was growing SO fast during back then that they figured they would gain 3 customers for every one they lost by not providing much after sale support. It worked pretty good for a few years...

Raza... Rather than part your car.. just get it running with the SC and then sell it to me!
I agree with you on UUC... this is exactly what I hear from everyone who has ever dealt with them.
Well now you hear something else.
I have had stellar service from UUC - needed a replacement clutch and got it without any problems from UUC
under warranty. You also have to remember that the dissatisfied people are much louder than those that
And Raza..... breathe through your nose and relax. You have now left OEM land and have a custom
car. You will have more problems than with an OEM car and they will take more time to solve.
Finish this project - you will be very happy with the result.
Raz, I have to add this: you will have one of the most awesome vehicles that has ever rolled the planet, once the problems are solved this will seem like a distant nightmare and you will have such a boner, stick with it, work the issues, charge on.
Mr. Raza - don't know you, but I wanted to drop a line of encouragement to you on this amazing project. I know you are frustrated, but please don't give up. I wanted to tell you that I am in your corner and hope you get to see the fruits of your labor soon.
Just seems like you've been through a lot - and I hope you find extra happiness and satisfaction driving your ride when you complete the project because of the adversity you've been through.
For what its worth, your documentation of this process and your eventual happiness with the kit will have a huge affect on wether I go for the project as well. That is the beauty of this board, we all learn and share with each other. Your contributions haven't gone unnoticed and unrespected.
