EVO 9 Complete Intake Test and Tune

  PERRIN EVO 9 Intake Test and Tune We have been selling our EVO intakes for quite some time now and while we have proven they do not screw up the MAF readings we never did dyno test it.  In the past we had to go to someone elses dyno to test things and in the past this item wasn’t on the top of our list to prove. Times changed, we have our own dyno, we have time to do [...Continue Reading...]

R56 & GT2560 meets PERRIN Water Injection

We have had our Water injection system installed for a very long time on our R56, and it was sitting there doing nothing because there was no way to turn in on. At least there was no way to turn it on using the injector pulse signal. The R56, as many know, is a Direct Injection engine.  This means, instead of the injectors firing fuel in the intake runners, the injectors are fired directly into the combustion chamber.  This is [...Continue Reading...]

2008 WRX Sedan Stage 2 & 3 Dyno Tuning and Intake!

We left our rather boring but tuned 08 WRX much faster than it started out but it was dying to get more power.  While we were the first to tune the 08 WRX using an AP (not to mention first to tune an 08 WRX period with the Hydra) it was early enough in our development that we didn’t have an exhaust to install and do further tuning.   Now we do and now was a good time to show off [...Continue Reading...]

R56 GT2560R Dyno Test and Tune!

Finally we have the tools to tune it, and finally we can install the kit on the car and make some power!  With our kit we have the ability to throw on 4 main turbos. The Garrett GT2554R GT2560R, a GT2854R and GT2860R.  There is even a crazy GT2871R, which is good to 450 engine HP, but we won€™t be using that for a little while. We are starting out with the Gt2560R turbo because we feel this is the [...Continue Reading...]

Project 15K, final test & tune 300WHP

Project 15K started life as a $10K 2002 WRX we purchased to show people how you can get great power from the older 2.0L cars.  The project car was purchased with a lot of miles, but also a few mods already done.  The Blaze yellow WRX had a catback exhaust, catless downpipe, huge diameter uppipe (huge is not a good thing) Version 1 AccessPORT, lowering springs and not to mention a sweet grounding system using  8 gauge near solid core [...Continue Reading...]

ALTA Tuned the GP

As many people now know, we are selling/tuning Unichips for the Mini.  We have proven the Unichip can make big power on the new R56 model, and now its time to prove its worth on the R53 Mini!  It may sound funny that we are re-proving an already proven product for the R53, but no one has really done back-to-back runs proving what it can do.   We like Concrete Evidence that something works, and this is exactly that. Also it [...Continue Reading...]

R53 GP Test and Tune of the JCW Exhaust and Intake

We€™re at it again proving more ALTA PARTS!  One question we always wanted to answer was €œDo the ALTA parts make more HP than the JCW parts?€.  We get asked this a lot as customers are torn between parts they can get at the dealer, and aftermarket parts from us.  Our selling points used to revolve around the prices of JCW parts vs. ALTA.  Now we have another angle!  We can now say ALTA parts WILL make more power than [...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...]

EVO X Stage 2 Dyno Tuning

Just to recap again.  The ECU Tuning device here is not a supported item and again this info is provided to show customers how we strive to be the first to tune these cars and get more experience than any other tuner. Time to put that exhaust to the test!  Last time we left the EVO X progress we had a nice and shiny turboback exhaust all done and awaiting testing. To refresh your memory see our page located HERE. Here [...Continue Reading...]
