ok heres the thing short and sweet... i brought my 98 gti vr6 to KMD tuning in NJ about a 2 years ago... left it with them for about 8months to a year... with a basic turbo setup i put together myself... i payed $8000... yes thats eight thousand... ok it gets better... and to top it all off i payed to get a car back that wasnt even running...no maf plugged in, when you would start it , it would die. Also after i got it to run, it began to die here and there... nothing was done to help the matter after my eight large was collected.


THE GOOD .... my friend JJ from dubaudi refered me to SLEEPERS PERFORMACE.... the only shop that has great customer support... fixed all the problems kmd couldnt handle and charged me about an 8th of the price... boost doesnt spike everything is neat , afr's are PERFECT, i can only say if you waant any work being turbo or staying N/A go with sleepers... take the ride to conneticut and it will be money WELL spent... now check out the new set up!

Re: Going Turbo ? Check this first... Sleepers Performance or KMD ??!! Before and After (Vrich6)

Your IC piping is quite sextacular...
I've been debating between Sleepers and Momentum for my turbo install, although seeing this might help to sway me towards Sleepers. Plus, I've heard some bad things about Momentum in terms of wait time and stuff.

jesus i love the boost plumbing fromt he original set-up. looks pretty damn ghetto and one doesn't even have a clamp on it. Glad you got everything sorted out and looking really good. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

I'm in NJ as well.. Sleepers will be getting my money next year when I go turbo. Their work looks so damn clean! http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif


also, does anyone have an e-mail address for Sleepers? I've got a laundry list of questions/stuff related to a build I might want them to do soon..
Thanks!
