Customers that don't know any better, and have never driven a car with real power, get their car tuned, and all the sudden they have these huge numbers, and think the tuner is awesome. They have no idea their car makes nowhere near the power they were told it makes, so they just fall for it.
It is really sad seeing some of the hp numbers being thrown around here. My ej207 with just a tbe at 19psi is only putting down 260whp. I wish it would have yielded more but I am happy my tuner didnt bs me and it put things into perspective how expensive it really is to build and own a fast car.
