BRZ/FR-S Part Proving.... All Bolt-Ons Part 1

After our first dyno testing we did on all our exhaust pieces and intake parts, we created a ton of buzz in the BRZ/FR-S world. Being the first to do this, sparked many other vendors to do the same. We may not have been posting up tons of dyno graphs recently, but we have been spending most of our time learning about this new engine. Since we can now tune the ECU, we are able to see many things going […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…]

EVO 9 Stage 1 & 2 Test and Tune

Update EVO 8/9 AccessPORT, RIP   In the world of EVO ECU tuning, there is one basic standard form of tuning.  OpenECU very quickly became the standard form of tuning because of its open-ness to anyone that wanted to help figure out maps and how the ECU actually worked, oh, and not to mention you could flash your car for $99.  Since we have been using the COBB AccessPORT on our Subaru’s for a while now, we thought lets tune […Continue Reading…]

R53 Water Injection Test and Tune

Through out this article I will be referring to Water/methonal injection as WI. With this entire test and install, we are showcasing this as something anyone can do. There is not a single part of this test that a person should feel scared to do except for the tuning which should be left up to a professional tuner. Water injection has been used in many industries for a very long time.  We are finally bringing it to the Mini world!  […Continue Reading…]

2008 PERRIN STI, Stage 2 tune

We were the first to dyno the 08 STI, we were the first to bring you intimate pics of the car, and we were the first to tune the AccessPORT on the STI!  In stage 1 form (bone stock car), with some initial testing we did, we got great gains!  We saw roughly 40ft-lbs and 35WHP with nothing other than an ECU reflash!  Its not very often that you can get those types of gains from a bolt on/flash on. […Continue Reading…]

2008 PERRIN STI, First to get an AccessPORT, Stage 1

We were very lucky to get our hands on the first STI available in Oregon, and maybe anywhere in the US.  Our dealer was very reluctant to sell us the car as it was not offically released.  After we dynoed it in stock form with in hours of owning the car, we very quickly shipped the ECU out to COBB next day air.  They needed the ECU for only a few hours and we got it back in 2 days […Continue Reading…]
