I think eiptuning.com can do it for you, there is somebody here that is working with them with a GTi-R DET.

EIP sucks! My buddy ordered a turbo kit for his 99' 2.0 Golf in May, and every week since then they have said either there is a backorder on turbos (T3) or they recieved the turbos and they need a week (yeah right) to compile the kit.

They wouldn't return his deposit (500 usd), so he threatened them with the BBB and they basically laughed at him.

All they're concerned about is making a profit, not customer service. You'd think a big business like EIP would run their business a little more respectively, wouldn't you?

Be careful with them,

P.S. He's still waitng for the turbo!!

One more thing. Eip originally told my friend it would take 7-10 days to get the complete kit to his door.

yeah they are bad with time that is for sure. you have to stay on them about that kind of stuff. they are not really concerned with profit, trust me i have partied with rich at his house, and it is just a apartment. every penny he makes he puts it back into the business. if your buddy had a vr6, then that would be a different story. that is what they care about and is their money maker, the vr6. but as far as time goes that is what i hate about them, but i am on the east coast, and they deal with special application installs, too bad i don't live in cali or az.

EIP called my friend with the Golf last week telling him the turbo kit was ready for shipment so my friend said he's coming to Baltimore for business on Monday and he'll pick it up then. His business trip got delayed so he called Friday to see if it was ready to be picked up this weekend, and they told him yes, it was waiting for him complete. Friday night at 9:00 pm he left Kitchener Ontario, drove till 4 am, stopped at a hotel, then drove another 3 hours to EIP's shop. He walked in, told them who he was, and guess what they said?.....IT'S NOT READY!!! WTF???????

Those bastards made him drive 9 hours one way for nothing!!!! 5 ****ing months of waiting and nothing!! All they gave him was the turbo and manifold. No piping, chip, oil lines, blowoff valve, etc. $2500 USD for a tiny turbo and manifold?? Who knows when they'll send the rest of the stuff, 5 more months?? The guy he talked to on the phone saying the turbo is ready denies telling him that.

I'm telling you man, stay as far away from EIP as you can. They're nothing but crooks.

A pissed off friend of a very very pissed off friend,

Don't know how much they charge, but they can get the engine.
