I have found out in life that no matter how good you do 1 **** up erases all of the good. So I am giving FiTech the opportunity to test it out cause I want to know what the hell is wrong with it. Ken even aid he would tell me what is wrong with it and he would not cover anything up or say he fixed it and not even test it out. So we shall see everyone!!
I've been following your thread from the beginning,...
Any chance Ken would join the board so he could answer questions directly in this thread?
Looks like that would be good PR for his product and business.
Plus we have had a lot of "big name" companies reps, as members on this board.
He could also announce new products and help members that have issues.
Just a thought,....

Re: 1976 Square "Simple Green"

Ray here.

At the risk of over thinking this they do not have time to answer there e-mails
never mind tracking a dozen or more forum threads(at least)
You would need at least one dedicated employee to do this.. most likely not happening.

Ray..
Ray this is going to hurt but...

Seriously, FiTech was/is reading this thread I'm sure they saw you tear apart their product, both the controller and the throttle body. Changing chips from controller to controller. I wouldn't warranty anything after someone completely took the thing apart, who knows what all you could of done to it.
I still don't understand how the controller "came apart" when it has screws in it. It did cause you took it apart.
Swapping parts from one unit to the next, and I think you dove in to the program and poked around and probably changed something where it wouldn't do a "reset".
You ever get the feeling there is more to the story then what someone saying? When you are ask a direct question you side step it and won't answer the question but instead says he's done talking about it.

Now that is the PG version for the forum members. I want put you on blast in front of the world. I know what's up with you and FiTech. What you did is wrong and deceitful. So may I suggest a graceful bow out from you. Like I said before I am the only one who has had a real issue. Now I am not trying to get a pissing match stared. Last I checked this is my build thread and not yours. So exit my thread. I will no long acknowledge you and I would suggest other members do the same.

I can shoot them a email and suggest. But honestly they growing so fast idk if they have time for a forum. But that would be cool if they would. But then they would have to join numbers of forums because they cover such a large platform.

Re: 1976 Square "Simple Green"

Ray here.

I'm not hurt at all...It a two week turn around from were I am in NH.
If I can do something I will....or at least try. its just nuts and bolts not magic..
I know going in the warranty will most likely become null and void...

I don't filter my thought's very well most days. I have posted some things out of anger and frustration......I would not go back and change any of them...

I do hope there following this tread that will defiantly save me from a lot of phone calls
were I cant get across what am trying to say..

Ray.

Thank you. I have a good feeling about the outcome also. I am not giving up I have communicated with FiTech over email and phone and have kept them in the loop of my issues. Communication is key with all of this. I have been patient and so have they. It works both ways. I hope this helps others down the road.

Re: 1976 Square "Simple Green"

Ray here.

Called Fitech today and apologize for my needless over reacting..
Things go wrong and I should be dealing with it in a proper manner even if it
takes more time than I would like or its not what I want to hear..
I will take the time that is needed!!! I really want this to work....

This is not my tread but after a week or more of ranting some my want to know it works out?...... I will let you know IN TIME......

Ray.

I think a lot of the concern came from other name units.
If you read in the FiTech Experiences thread, I just posted a bunch more links.
I searched keywords FiTech Vacuum. Guys aren't having issues.
One thing I noticed is both MSD and FiTech allow for selecting Cam Type.
Mild = 1
More Radical = 4

Straight from MSD.

The maximum allowable duration measured at 0.050" is 250, with a lobe separation angle greater than 108. With larger durations the system may not function smoothly.

FiTech does not have these limitations from what I have been told by Ken. At this point and time I will have to take his word. As he has a bigger cam than I do and is using the unit on his vehicle.
