Thumbs up Wow...EcuTek/Zerosport Rep from Japan tuning all week at AutoHQ

Dropped by AutoHQ today and the lot was full of cars. Today was the first day of tuning by the EcuTek/Zerosport Rep that was flown in from Japan to personally tune the cars. Set up time and road tuning took well over 4 hours for the first wrx. It was amazing watchin this guy pay close attention to detail as he worked meticulously.

Congratulations to everyone who is getting your car tuned at AutoHQ this week. I am definitely saving my money for then next time he comes back to the states.

You guys should drop by, welcome him and watch him work if you have time. He'll be here until next monday, when he takes off to SEMA with cKevin.

You guys should've seen Lawrence when he came back from the road tuned. That guy probably soiled himself. :-x Haha

Road tuning in the bay area sounds like a bad idea to me.... I hope they have a good "test track" worked out and stay safe. But hey... I'm happy to see that I'm not the only one who prefers road tuning

Best of luck to the tuner and everyone getting tuned

Yeah, call Lawrence to fit you in. I was the one backed out cuz my turbo setup couldn't make it on time.

My friend(the first WRX tuned) just called me up a minute ago and told me that he beated a 5.0 Mustang easily on 280 last night. He didn't tell me lots of detail, but he told me that on 4th gear hitting 120mph and the car still going without knock, fuel cut or anything weird thing happen. Bad luck to me can't have him tune it. I have to wait till December.

Yeah, nothing weird happened at all. I think he's bring it back to AHQ later next week to finalize the map again. This is what he got.

VF29, pinks, 255L pump, JDM STI TMIC, HKS up, Maddad catted DP, EVO2 exhaust last time I talked to him. I'm not sure what others he has been done to it.
