Default Anyone here get a part installed by intense-racing?

Hi all

I just noticed Intense actually installs parts.

Unfortunatly they are in Ohio and Im in California. I only been to Oregon,washington and Hawaii so I would be willing to road trip there.

Are they good people?

Rocker Arms,Cam, Torque Converter and PCM

How much would power would that add?

Rogue is a Gearhead here, and their customer service manager.

INTENSE has been with us a LONG time. They're the best. Their products are great, and their customer service is unquestionable.

Terrific people at INTENSE. I've watched them work on Mod-Day, and they are on the ball.

You're also gonna need an intake and maybe some exhaust work to get the most out of those mods.

This has held true on this forum but not on others.
I personally have had a good experience with intense but there are horror stories out there.

Those stories are fostered and blown out of proportion by one of INTENSE'* competitors and a former employee. This is why we will not allow this forum to be sponsored by a vendor.

Performance is ALWAYS cutting edge. And any time INTENSE went over that edge, they learned from it, fixed it, and made it right. One of the 'former employee'*' intents was to start his own business. What better way than to bash INTENSE?

Nobody on this forum has EVER had a quality or mechanical issue with INTENSE. That'* a pretty good record in my book.

To be fair there was a big recal (for this community) for a reason. A pretty nasty one too.

I bought a PCM from Intense last winter. I got it just one day after ordering, and my emails were answered promptly. I had a good experience. I switched to a different PCM for different reasons, but in a business sense, I did have a good experience.

There was a big recall on one of their products, but that has been taken care of.

Jason, you're actually quite a bit out of your league, and are basing your opinion on what you 'heard' from other people, typically the negative side.

As I stated in my reply above, when you want CUTTING edge performance, you push the edge. When you go over the edge, you deal with it. That'* exactly what INTENSE does. And they do it well.

Jason, share YOUR experience with INTENSE. We'd like to hear it.
