You can always head to Marlyand and I'll be happy to tune your Hydra.

Thanks,

The Element Hydra and the Hydra Nemesis are basically the same product. Element Tuning has the exclusive distribution for the Subaru STi and WRX product lines. We start with a Hydra Nemesis and add mounting brackets, spacers, instructions, accessories, and include a tuned base map for many popular combinations.

What vehicle do you have your Hydra in and what are your modifications? Are you being provided with a tuned base map or just a "plug and pray" base map?

Thanks,
Phil

If you could fill me in a little more on what your modifications are I can give you a better idea how long it will take. I have most popular setups down to about 2 hours.

Thanks,
Phil

well mine would probably take a little longer, and since your a bit out for me i wouldnt come down until i have a few more mods done... thinking early/mid summer.

anyway, its a 2004 mazdaspeed miata, 2.5 turbo back catless, short ram (flyin miata) intake, custom fmic, boost control by a perrin ebcs (btw, which bcs would you say works best with the hydra?) and probably a tial bov.

as of right now i dont have the catback, so i wont have it tuned just yet.

--but at the same time, since you spoke up i may opt out on the wideband for now, and just get my mods done. so if you think you can give me a rough estimate that'd be great.

From Flyin Miata the base map should be decent but I would like to review it before I quote you a price. If you wouldn't mind uploading it and emailing it to me I'll take a look at it for you. The quality of the tune is really going to depend on the compensation maps they setup. If they are good then the tune will hold well throughout the seasons and the car will start when itís cold or hot.

I am extremely proficient with the Hydra but since itís not one of my maps I would predict 3-4 hours on a good base map. I will require you to purchase the WB option with your Hydra for me to tune it. Itís too critically important with a stand-alone such as the Hydra with almost 1100 load sites that I have a WB that data logs directly to the unit.

Thanks,
Phil

I took a look at the base map and it looks pretty solid. There are only a few questionable settings but other than that tuning should be straight forward. I would say 3-4 hours would be more than ample to fully tune the car and run it on the dyno.

Thanks,
Phil

Whatever Phil charges, he is worth it. His tuning ability with the Hydra is super!! Now I just need to finish picking upa couple mods myself before getting him to tune my Hydra.

i agree... the tuners in my area say "we'll, we havent done it before, but its all the same, so we'll do your car."

yea, theyre not touching my car....

ill drive the extra distance to see someone who's so specialized in the area that he even has a partnership with hydra
