    Yep me too... 2 weeks nothing... Emailed him, facebook messaged him... Today I called his number twice... Goes straight to voicemail... I was interested in going to his TB... I've got Fastman's TB... Wanted to try his but I'm worried I won't get anything... Hope he gets my tunes soon... I guess I'll give him a week or two... Don't know what else to do... :(

    I'm tempted to try ordering his TB and see what happens... Really wanted to try it out but I'm worried I won't get anything.... Like I said I don't know.

    Man....it almost too much stress to deal with not getting any response when you paid your money...maybe it just me but when I buy something ...I am on it! checking the tracking number often and all that....

    Messin with Will might give me a heart attack!...lol expecially if I'm dropping $6 hun +

    feel ya pain....I know paypal will help but do I really want the hassle? dude customer service sucks!!

    he really just don't care at all....lol....hes like "you be alright...you can wait or don't ...I don't care....lol

    zero "concerns" given.....lol

    yeah I look into it but I'm going to give HP Tuners a try.....I think there is only one person on the whole forumz that has a HP Tuner tune on their charger...his name is DLine....

    I'm thinking....all this trouble I'm going thru just to be different ...has to pay off!......(I hope...lol)

    So whats the normal response time from Will@overkill?

    A few weeks ago I emailed him about being interested in a tune, and gave some additional info on the vehicle, etc.

    No reply.

    So then a week ago browsing the site I found the products page and the ability to purchase a tune for your specific vehicle. I then thought maybe he didnt reply to generic interest emails and maybe you need to make a purchase to get a response. Ok, cool. So I purchased a custom tune thru paypal and emailed him the original backup and last tune written along with additional info on the vehicle, etc.

    Ok, Still nothing from him. I dont expect to have the new custom tune already, but a confirmation reply of some sort would be nice. I checked my account to make sure the transaction went thru. It did.

    So whats the usual timetable with overkill?

    Its gotten bad over the year. When i first worked with him he always kept me updated. Then it just stopped randomnly. I've noticed he started doing other projects like a new supercharger and traveling. Keep messaging him. Also on his facebook page and instant messenger. But ive heard some people waiting a few months to get thiers. :-( when things were good it was 2 days.

    Yea... Same here... I wanted to try his tune/tunes cause he says he's a Pentastar tuner... I got his tunes 89/91/93 tried to get with him to data log but never heard back... Didn't really like his 89 but I started running AcesIV in my car and will be trying the 91 and maybe the 93 checking for knock... I see him active in some GM forums though... I might still try his throttle body though... I've got Hemifever's and Johan's tunes also... Really like them... Still don't know until I try his 91 and 93...

    Between the three tuners... Overkills you get three improved tunes over the canned tunes no data logging... Hemifever's and Johan's are a single custom tune of your octane (89) choice with data logging... Hemifever or Johan's I liked Johan's... But like I said I haven't tried Overkills 91 or 93... Will be trying the 91 first and data logging then the 93 after running AcesIV for a couple of gas tanks... who knows they may be better... I'm hoping.

    Im currently running Hemifevers 93 tune. I use 93 octane gas + AcesIV. Ive been using Seans tune for about 2.5 years. I like it much better than stock or the diablo canned tune but theres something about the gear shifting I dont particularly like. Im thinking Overkills will be a little smoother.
