As I stated earlier, I have knowledge of the S-52 motor installs. I did a lot of research before I decided to NOT supercharge my car. It has nothing to do with the quality of the VF kit. I believe it...

I answered this on the other forum in more detail, but if this is where you check first, it's most likely a failure of the brake light switch. Cheap on amazon and 15 minutes to swap.
