I love catching liars...

Take a look at this ALPHA FAB INDUSTRIES SC KIT...

ALPHA FAB INDUSTRIES, INC. ? AFI 2.2/2.4 ECOTEC STAGE I OFF-ROAD SUPERCHARGER KIT


Look at their claimed Stage II dyno charts...Those are my dyno pulls I posted on CSS from 2011 with my HHR and they call them their own. LOL

I don't know them...I am going to call them out by emailing them a link to this thread in about a week

Just douchebaggery to outright lie to customers. The really sad part is they claim to do their own dyno tuning and have pictures of that on their site...so they have a dyno and can't post their own results

They have dyno results for their other kits as well...probably not theirs.

I stumbled across their site because I am planning a trans swap in the Solstice this Nov. Came up empty...except my eyes fell on those dyno charts.

Instead of mailing them a link, you should have everyone go post to their facebook page that they are lying.

I find it interesting that a business in Michigan would post dyno results from a dyno in Las Vegas. Their turbo kit has it, with a stupid lean spike at 3750 and it's choppy as all hell not even close to smooth for STD 5 smoothing

Ha didn't even think of their FB page...Im gonna check that out

I noticed on the turbo dynos that they say Las Vegas too...Unless those were submitted by a customer ...I bet they are somewhere on the CSS forum too if they are even ecotec dyno graphs...

That's messed up! And I wonder who's engine that really is. That engine is massively crooked on the stand. They had to angle the photo to make it look straight!

That's messed up. I'm also not convinced of their engineering, based on how they have the belt setup. Look at the alternator. It has barely any belt contact, just the belt running down both sides

I just wanted to drop by and say thank you for stealing my buddy's dyno graph photos and posting them as your own on your website! It is really classy to back up the claims of your m62 supercharger package with dyno graphs sourced from google. BTW, they came from a Chevy HHR running a fitted supercharger kit for a Cobalt SS LSJ. Keep it classy guys!

Found another one!

They took it from the dyno thread CSS members dyno hotpursuit LE5 NA list:

https://www.cobaltss.net/forums/dyno...2011-a-247552/

They cut off the other shops name Innovative Tuning. They claim it is a dyno of their longtube header!

ALPHA FAB INDUSTRIES, INC. ? AFI 2.2/2.4 ECOTEC OFF-ROAD LONG-TUBE HEADER

Fukin losers...
