Customer Tune - Ethan Esterline

We have a customer/friend that works at Portland Mini that owns a 2011 WRX and he was asking to get his car tuned.  Normally we don’t do a lot of customer tunes, but in this case i didn’t have much planned one night, and i was dying to tune a Stage 3 2011 WRX. Ethans car is a 2011 WRX Sedan (My current favorite Subaru) that has been slowly upgraded over the last few months from a simple AccessPORT to [...Continue Reading...]

EVO X Intercooler Prototype Build, Test & Tune

Like we weren’t going to make a new intercooler for the X. For one, the stock one is pretty restrictive, and two, in order for the EVO to compete with the STI in our EVO vs. STI project it really needed one!  Besides the gains we saw there is one very important thing we found, which will be a Huge concern to all X owners after they find this same thing out. Before we get too deep, lets look the [...Continue Reading...]

PERRIN Stage 3 Uni......wait, no more Unichip?????

These results are also for a product we no longer support (ECUTEK Flashes), but these results are right in line with what we see on our AccessPORT flashes which is what we currently offer.  Just don’t call and ask us for Unichip!! Stage 2 Unichip tuning, and turboback exhaust is all done and proven.  We then did our FMIC testing and showed the HP gains from it and discovered a major flaw in the EVO’s new engine design.  Read HERE for our Base [...Continue Reading...]

The Great Subaru Intercooler Test

The Great Subaru Intercooler Test Its intercooler testing time.  After a semi cold winter, it was a great time to do some long awaited intercooler testing.  Because our 08 STI has become the mule for testing of other parts, its great for testing intercoolers.  We have great results from previous dyno runs to back up the consistency of the power (or lack thereof with stock intercooler).  Like other dyno sessions, we started with the same map and same dyno setup, [...Continue Reading...]
