So the intake tempertaure sensor blew out of it's plastic bung. Way to go Dodge on that engineering masterpiece.
So $300+ later I got the AGP upper hardpie, TurboXS BOV, block off plate and whatever other shit came with it.

I'd also like to give a big FUCK YOU to modernperformance. Your sales staff is the most ignorant fucks I've ever had to deal with. I don't know what makes you dickheads think your shit doesn't stink, but get over it. You sling fucking parts for neons.

I'm sorry I didn't know the $300+ kit I bought from you ASSHOLES didn't come with a vacuum line to make it operate. WHO woulda thought!?!? I especially appreciate you ignorant fucks not helping in any way on how to A. aquire one and B. the proper size. Thank you ADVANCED AUTO for helping me find the correct vaccum line.
I'd also like to apologize for ordering by phone since your SHITTY point of sales system on the internet doesn't operate right and having the GAUL to call and find out my order status. The ignorant jerkoff on the other end of the phone said, and I quote "OF COURSE you're not going to get an order status! You used the phone to place the order."

This is the 3rd or 4th time you've guys have been that way with me over the phone. You guys just lostt a customer.

It's like Robin Williams' bit, "I'm so happy to be screwed eh"

If you had a bad experience regardless of who it was with you should say it was a bad experience.

The kitteh makes that picture awesome. And Modern Performance pissed me off with their fucking "BOLT ON" throttle body that came with an O-ring the size of goliath and it's not BOLT on at all. You can only run the vacuum lines one way.....or the car drives itself.

They argued with me repeatedly that I didn't have the set screw set right. They're on my shit list too for not be honest and up front. I never got an order status either, and when I placed my damn near 2k order I told them I wouldn't be there to sign for shipping. They made it signature service anyways and I had to drive over an hour away just to pick it up because they didn't listen. I chased parts for three days. Never got a tracking number or anything.

Let's make a modern performance experiences thread.....I wonder how many are positive vs. negative.

I ordered an intercooler. But the company that made it put it on back order. So I canceled the order.

I have plenty more to bitch about with ModernPerformance. This was just the last straw. Make the thread, I'll throw it down.

ride quality improved dramatically, especially with the fatter tires.

LSP I ask and recieve? I like where your head's at
