Default Dyno tuning with EcuTek reflashed ECU?

I've been trying to get my '02 WRX wagon dyno tuned by the folks at Vishnu with no luck, although I've only been trying for a month or so to get an appointment. I live in central California (San Luis Obispo area) and am wondering if I should take my car elsewhere to have it tuned. Anybody have any experience with tuners that have an AWD dyno and have tuned Subie WRX's with ECU's reflashed using EcuTek software? Current engine mods are Helix up-pipe, Helix catted TBE, Vishnu passive boost controller, Vishnu EcuTek reflashed ECU, Vishnu IC hoses and underdrive pulley. I would really like to have my wagon tuned before the end of the year, because by March, I'll have to remove the TBE for smog testing (and then reinstall afterward)

I appreciate any help (or positive advice) I can get.

Thanks,

Greg

Talk with Kevin at AutoHQ in redwood city
Aya Shiganori
Director of ECUtek Japan, and lead tuner of Zero/sports Japan is here tuning cars for the week.
650-368-3290
Its not cheap, But he's the best I have ever met.

He was going to tune my car, But refuesed after seeing oil and water mixed and my car leaned out on the ECU.
He will tune my car when I get the new motor and set up installed.

I've got an appointment (finally) to have the car tuned on Friday December 7up in Union City at Full Function Technology. Vishnu contracts with local tuners now to perform tuning. They've sold their dyno tuning equipment (so I've been told by Calvin) so they use other tuner's AWD dynos to tune. I will report in with what I find out and how my car did. Hopefully I'll have some dyno charts to go with..............

I've got my fingers crossed and hoping for the best.

I won't go into boring details here, but if anyone is interested in the details of the tune by Shiv Pathak, send me a PM. End result was 225 WHP and 275 ft lbs of torque at the wheels, 2002 WRX Wagon, 98,885 miles on the odometer.
BTW, this is only 4 WHP and 20 ft lbs of torque difference between the original EcuTek reflash from Vishnu in June 2005, and the dyno tune on December 7th. Seems like pretty much of a waste of time, huh?

Happy Holidays to All................

I wouldn't call 20 ft/lbs of torque a waste...

Could also try I-Speed USA in SoCal, one of the very few companies to offer professional Internet Tuning for the EcuTeK systems.
