bad info

ok guys heres the story im new here i have an 88 fox gt im building. most of my parts came from lmr you all know the place. anyway i called there tech line and explained to the tech that i was building a 347 stroker. so i asked him what do i need as far as fuel injectors mass air flow ect. he said i needed a 75mm pro m mass air and 19lb injectors ok this is what they do so i beleave him. now skip ahead a few weeks i took my fox to dayton performance and am i glad i did mike bell the tuner said my mass air was pegging out at about 4200rpm and my fuel injectors at that point were just going static not cool. so come to fine out i was given bad info from the guys at lmr that i had started to trust. any thoughts on this?

I would think LMR would jump in here and handle this. If you can't recommend the proper parts to a guy asking, say so. Don't fill the knowledge void with overstocked parts and bad info. Your car can make some really good power with 30 lb inj and a matching maf, prob an 80 with a better cai to let that thing breath. Hopefully they will chime in......

Well lesson learned. That's all I can say but still should not have went down this way.

I'd call back and talk to the guys there, they're always more than helpful and will help in some way. Those are questions that I'd be asking the tuner though too. I'm sure some of the guys in their sales area are just sales guys, not gurus.

Hey 1fastfox. I'm terribly sorry to hear that we had someone give you incorrect information. Did you end up purchasing parts from us while on the phone with the person you spoke with?

And do you remember who it was you spoke with?

That's not a problem man!

Could you provide me with your sales order number, and your contact phone number and email so I can look into this for you and iron this out with my sales team?

Depends on what you told the tech about the rest of your setup...
@lmr ,
Do your guys have access to any tools (injector calculators, etc) to use when making recommendations?
Or is it just the personal experience of the guy on the phone (not always bad...)
