Question Ludespeed Stage III VS Forced Air Tech Stage III VS AVO kit

I've heard some good things about Tom at Ludespeed, but never anything about the Forced Air Tech guys. How do the kits compare? And then there is the AVO kit. Which is the best as far as performance, reliability, quality, etc. Any other companies that make kits that I am not aware of would be great to hear about. Thanks guys.

Ludespeed is an awesome kit. I have never had any problems with it and Tom is a very helpful guy. Ludespeed all the way!

i agree that the ludespeed seems like the best kit for the money, i just received mine and am in the process of installing it on my legacy, i have say tom is helpful but i am pretty disappointed in the customer service that everyone said is great.

We heavily apologize for any inconveniences we may have caused reguarding the customer service issue. Tom is an extremely busy individual. He has taken on the part of hiring me (Brice Kelly Sales Rep./Tech@PSI Turbo Performance) to help him keep business flowing in a timely and orderly fashion. We hope to meet and exceed all customers demands in the near future so we can continue being the best at what we do.

If we have any questions about our kits Brice, do we contact you or Tom? If so what is your e-mail address for contact?

Thanks.

I also have the Ludespeen Stage II Kit. It took a while to get it however it was well worth waiting for. I ran a 13.4@101 with a ACT clutch and Pressure plate. Never one problem. Proof is in the numbers.

How long have you had the kit on in terms of mileage? I'm debating N/A vs. turbo and am pretty sure that turbo will decrease the life of the engine, but would love to find out otherwise. I need to see 200k miles out of the car without too many major problems. 70k so far, but she's bone stock.

I guess your clutch and tranny have held up alright, too, even with the new clutch. Good to hear.
