Seems like they do a lot of WRX tuning. I was browsing their webpage, but it was such a pain I didn't find out if they had any parts for sale. Didn't look like it.

I will agree I check it out, for about a 1 minute or so. The navagation was so horable I left. Nice design but thats it a "design".

To see what he is selling you have to click on of the buttons that is under the car. Like the E for engine, the S for suspension, etc.

I'll tell you one thing, I wouldn't be paying $170 for a Blitz TT with harness!!

Now what a poor site....
Why would I want to buy anything from a company with such a low quality site? It is a reflection on the co, and not a good one...

Have a Nice Day? Difficult to use & no email response

I live in Vegas. I think these guys are affiliated with the Subie dealer (Fuccillo) I bought my WRX from. I was initially psyched to find a local WRX tuner & parts guy. Several emails went unanswered. Those pop-up windows were too small to see everything without scrolling (& you couldn't make them bigger). Let's hope they get better.

They were never affiliated with FUCCILLO, but they did mislead people here saying that they were!!

Scott did work at Fuccillo, and now runs "gfactor" out of a rim shop.

Didn't find gfactor in the public business listings for Clark County.... maybe it's under another name

Good luck to all!

first of all scott and ron were originally employed by Fuccillo Subaru. Due to the fact that we were putting customer service first, we were unable to get the GFactor program going like we thought would best benefit our customers needs. Scott and myself (Ron) decided to run our program at a separate facility.I dont understand why certain people are determined , and continue to bash us. We have a very good and reliable product and our customers are treated fairly and professional work is performed. I guess its easy to come on here in this forum and badmouth anyone. Not worrying about looking into their face and saying what they have to say. See you at the meet Sunday.

Next time I am in Vegas I will tell you to your face that the website needs improvement.


Unless, of course, I could meet Miss Junior Nevada.

Good Luck!!

Which would you rather a great product and a fast car or a great website. We put our development and our products first which consumes most of our time.

If you want a good website go to www.wrxtuner.com, they will give you a very impressive 250 HP Intake and exhaust is real performance...

Question GFactor?

Has anyone dealt with this company?
They have some lofty Hp gains on their modifications. I'm especially interested in their intake, claiming 18+ hp gain.
Is this with a unichip? or just with the bolt on?

Indeed lofty gains.

+20 HP from a cat eliminator and catback only and no additional tuning? doubtful.

They also out and out lie on the suspension page (where the brakes are) showing a picture of the Subaru 4 pots and calling them Brembos. Also charging $1000 for Suabru 4 pots is total robbery.

Also look at the suspension upgrade
that talks about japanese tuned struts and German cold formed springs, yet need camber bolts to get them back to -1.0 camber in the rear. 4 way front adjustability and 8 way rear ...Hmm... you think these are GC8 KYB AGXs and H&R or Eibach springs? You think they're trying to take you for a ride by charging $1200+ for these (IF you get the camber bolts, that is)?

I wouldn't trust them.

From the looks of the other stuff on their site, I HIGHLY doubt they designed anything, let alone dyno tested it. Based on the rest of their site, I'd say it's very likely that this is just a repackaged Injen or AEM.

Angry gfactor

Do not trust this shop. Do not trust this shop, Do not trust this shop.

Had a number of upgrades performed by them. Quality of work is not just poor but dangerous. Misrepresented what they were selling. Some of the parts seem to have been previously used. The piggyback computer they say is there own design and will not give literature or software. Turned out it was from split second, they removed the labels. Split second gives free software with every unit.

Installed GM style injectors without modifying fuel rail causing a massive fuel leak. Exhaust system has O2 sensor in wrong position so ECU always thinks it's running lean. Installed KYB struts made for standard Impreza not STi version they were supposed to. These units will not work in a WRX.

Scott Gregory is the owner, expect him to pop up in the future under some other company name

Will not return phone calls and will not return components they removed from vehicle.

Much more tell, needless to say a lawsuit is in the making but these guys need to be exposed before they kill someone.

Please pass the word.

I live in las vegas where this shop is located. Didnt hear any real BAD hard info from anyone till now..

Talked to a guy who owns a dyno here and said that after they installed a exhaust and filter on a lighting it actually lost power?? Weird but seemed the guy knew his stuff..

Anyone else? I buy all my stuff online through reputable guys here.. So no worries for me but if its really bad i wouldnt want a friend of mine going or something

I've been trying to here locally, but people just don't understand. Especially when he is operating without a proper license under another shop name. The person you should go after is the owner of LV Custom at the same address. That is the posted business license at the address.

Here's a quote from another thread, maybe the other number works:

If you want to check out our shop call us at (702) 227-5990 or my cell at (702) 285-7156 or you can check out our website at www.gfactorwrx.com. Hope to see you soon

Chris

I've been meeting more and more reputable tuners here in Vegas, and it seems like they all dislike Scott for some reason or another. My red flag was when I first met him and he said he took an audi 1.8T to over 300hp. After asking a few more q's, found that it was on stock injectors, pump and stock turbo.... just magical "dyno tuning" was used.

Sorry you had a bad experience, but if there's anything I can help with, let me know, I'm local.


YMMV!
