Thanks to Chris @ TurboKraft

I wanted to publicly thank Chris for all his help recently. I purchased an EFI conversion car he built a few years back and have been extremely impressed with his knowledge and both the components and the end result of his EFI conversion kit.

The car is a rocket and runs very well. I've owned quite a number of aftermarket EFI cars in the past, and the tune on this one is up with the best.

Thanks again!
Best,
John

I'd be truly surprised if there is anyone in this "community" that has anything other than kudos for Chris and Turbokraft.
Always went out of his way to help me.

Thought I would chime in here also. I bought some billet fuel blocks from Turbo Kraft which are way cool. Also had them get my intake honed and ported plus injectors cleaned. As with any project I had some minor issues after with a hot start problem that baffled me. Chris talked me through trouble shooting my problem on the phone during a busy day. What a nice guy. Most shops won't spend that much time helping the DIY guy unless you spend a fortune. Turned out to be the fuel accumulator and my spare was also bad. Thanks Chris,Mike and Brian.

I have never done any Business with Chris neither I know him personally however he has always come out of his way to help many of us even if we haven't done business with him.

Mr. Chris, some of us do appreciate what you do for the Porsche community! and if you are ever in the Ft.Lauderdale area make sure you let me know so we can go for spin

Best,
John

I'd like to ditto that thanks..

I inquired to Chris also about my car/engine which I assume he had a hnd in building may years back while with another outfit.

What impressed me was once I described the car and where it hailed from, he immediately remembered it and the previous owner's name, and what was done to it both times it was at their shop! I needed specs on the cams and Chris knew exactly what was in there.

Thanks again man!!

Paul

I always like reading his very imformative posts and looking at pictures of his really nice custom intercoolers.

He seems like a very intelligent and talented good guy.
