When you tune purely for a living its all about getting cars through as fast as possible, and as the guys get overwhelmed they start letting **** fly by the wayside. Its understandable, but just like you said Steve, its not the correct way to do things by far. Nothing against any of the guys, as most would agree, they are knowledgeable & talented guys, they just need better time management and know how to throttle their work.

You got a PM Steve.

It really is crapshoot as to what you could end up with. Sad part is, the customer rarely knows better/different unless they can compare it to another tuner...

Scott was known to be the one of the best until he got too busy to keep doing it. He was well known in the south east.

Steve @ Pullz-On Tuning
Exactly. I greatly respect Scott for his tuning. He has changed his focus towards other aspects of the racing\car community, which is completely understandable. I've come to terms that I simply need a re-tune.

Just for the record, I tuned this car for a different owner back in early 2009. He loved it and sent a number of e-mails about how much he enjoyed driving the car.

Fast forward a few years and BeastianSTi contacted me about the strange gurgling in the tank and some drive-ability issues.

At that point tuning was no longer my career. Between my family and my "real" job I have a limit of how much support I give people who buy cars that were tuned by me years ago. I'll do a few rounds of e-mail with the new owners, who were never my direct customers, but understandably, I have to limit it somewhere, particularly with people that aren't planning on bringing the car back to me (I still tune a few evenings per month).

I'm glad this thread hasn't turned into a flame-fest, I assure you that I still have a strong desire to help people enjoy their cars, I just have a lot of other responsibilities with my time, so I can only give away so much of it.

I hope to see some of y'all at some road courses

Yup yup - that's all true ! I actually know the previous owner. He can't seem to remember if the car had forged pistons or not though :S

I have an 03 Wrx and my wideband guage doesn't read it will sit at 14.5 and every minute it goes all the way up all the way down then back to 14.5 could this be the o2 sensor in the downpipe? And could I use oem and it connect right in?

Could what be the o2 sensor in the downpipe? I'm not sure what that question means. What wideband are you using? No you can't just swap out your wideband sensor with an OEM sensor. Has your wideband ever worked? What has changed? How is it installed?

It worked when I got it it's a pro sport wideband and in the downpipe if I'm correct is an o2 sensor when I bought the car it was installed and worked but now not not reading and on the face it shows [ 3 ]

Yeah that would be a wideband o2 sensor. There should be replacements out there via Prosport. The harnesses aren't the same, like eggroll mentioned.
