Yeah his name is definitely not some Angel ... I found the shop on FB and asked for Angel and he was like who tf is that LOL... The name is Armando Villegas for those who are curious too. Super cool guy! We spoke for half an hour about my car; I told him about the problems I am having, about how pig rich it runs to the point it's bogging down the engine sometimes, about the LO speed fan that is constantly on and other things... I wish I knew him earlier... TurboXS tune was a waste of money. I am going to be tuned there now.

I was just checking some older post and saw this. I never got your message so I can reply on the thread. I'll check my personal settings now to see what's wrong. Did you ever get your car tuned by Alphaspeed? If so how did it go? I still got his cell number if you need it.

Nope, never got around primarily due to them constantly backing out and/or sending me to one another. I live in Memphis, TN, so the closest AlphaSpeed dealer to me would be the one in central Texas and/or someone in MO... Can't remember exactly but I do recall talking to a couple of different vendors and none of them seemed like they were interested to get me tuned as soon as I started talking about my specs... One of them told me it was best for me to just get a haltech LOL....... If I had a haltech - I'm pretty sure I can get it tuned by a local shop and there would be no need for me to ask here.

The guy in Ocala, FL (Ditto Boost) was the friendliest one out of all of them. He said he would tune me BUT only if I came to him. That's the last thing I would ever do because if comes down to me having to drive for over 1000 miles - I might as well drive to TurboXS and let them fix their own tune because I am still on it.

I was just trying to utilize the ability to do this whole thing remotely without driving anywhere because by the time I come to Florida, spend money on gas, food, hotel AND pay for the tune itself - I don't think it would worth it. On top of that, I wouldn't even trust my current tune to drive that far either. So, yeah....

Wow sorry to hear your going through this mission still with the tune. Yes his name is Armando not Angel my bad lol! I would assume alot of tuners would be reluctant to tune your car with a canned tune since your running a bigger turbo, and they dont want to deal with the potential headache. Like you already know a custom tune on the street and a dyno would be the way to go. What I would do is the following: Since you spent the $ have TurboXs fix the tune and make it right. Or fly Armando in to Tennessee and have him tune your car personally of course you would have to pay for his flight, hotel, and the tune but it might be your best bet. You maybe able to get a cheap flight if you check online for the deals you might just luck out! Last but not least get a Haltech and [email protected]$k the canned amd custom tunes and go all out!

I don't think I could justify doing something like that, I mean it's not a Ferrari, right? this route would probably end up costing even more LOL... On top of that, I would also probably be the first person to do something like that. I mean, I'd like to run another tune but I'm not that desperate, you feeling me? Of course, I could unplug the boost solenoid and drive with boost-less but I can already say that this is going to be the most boring drive in my life

In all seriousness, though, AlphaSpeed came to this market positioning themselves in a way that they could can-tune as well as custom tune REMOTELY... They did not say that a Haltech was one of the requirements. I know people got tuned to their specs that are way more superior than what I have on my car and I do not have anything special by any means. I don't blame AlphaSpeed or Norman here, it is just there's nobody local I wish I could work with. No, I am not happy with the turboXS tune, but the car still runs and I drive it daily, so I guess it's not that bad.

I understand your point. I figured I would give you a few options. Also didnt know that there requirement is you have to have a Haltech.

Yeah, Alphaspeed central Texas told me this while Dito Boost said they "could" just tune my stock ecu (which was flashed twice by now). They tell me to get haltech in order to simplify the tuning process for them but I'm not buying that. For everything that I've got - stock ECU is just fine.

I see your point and of course there going to tell you get a Haltech so they can tune your car perfectly and not have the potential headache or problems of tuning the stock ecu with a bigger turbo. Of course with the Haltech you have much more control and it's more versatile then any canned or custom ecu can ever do. Now with that being said if I were in your shoes and im planning on keeping the car and possibly upgrading to a even bigger turbo id definitely would do a Haltech. Reason being everytime you want to upgrade the turbo or add maybe meth or Nos you always have to get retuned and thats time and money. Again I like the Haltech because of the huge aftermarket support thats available and it's versatility. Wish you the best of luck brotha!

Yeah I wish it was that simple. The car is equipped with immobilizer. I still have the stock ecu. I just hate the fact that I won't be able to do anything with the BTR canned tune since Btr refused to check the tune out for me only a week old.

Getting a tune without tuning the AT is ridiculous. The TCU will counter any limiter increase or removal and maintain its designed parameters leaving you like an unsatisfied woman on her wedding night. LOL.

BTR is the only one who can tune the TCU right now. SFR can do it as well, but not officially. Neither have remote options at the moment, though SFR is working to bring it out.

I have a BTR tune on the TCU and very happy with it. Would never let them touch my ECU again. Some of you know why...

Norman at Alphaspeed is the way to go. Period. Custom street tune, not over-rich canned tunes ir custom tunes purely for a dyno number.

Why dont you hear from me, cause I dont need to come on here and boast. I know how my car runs.

You can build a motor to run pump gas, or not and give it the fueling it needs. My car is proof. I only spout out when someone asks for input.

For a canned tune, a 12.2 AFR at WOT is about as good as it gets. Or as you pointed out, safe enough to keep the stock internals together.
BR your right, I'm right at the threshold, then again thats why I mix 100 octane and run pure meth. No thermal expansion run amuck here. Proof is in the pudding,...and yes time is telling.

I'm not cocky, I just have some really smart dudes advising me. So far they are right.

Besides, the turbo kits tune is about as non canned as it gets. It depends how and what you ask for. Technicallly yes its a "canned" tune. In my case when I ordered I dealt with Sam directly. He put all my little extras in there. He knew I was going to fuel mix, use pure meth, and run race plugs.
***I inqured that once I was complete should I come up to Chi town for a custom, he said nope, no need.

Here we go again !
