Default 555 Motorsports Road Tune (Jointly w/DS1)

My article about the hybrid build is located in DS1's review thread. Great guys to say the least.

So everyone knows that Matt (555 Motorsports) has jointly set his "shop" in DS1's place and does road tunes and dyno tunes over in St. Charles, IL.

Dylan was the one who recommended me to Matt's tuning service and I could not be happier. I did not take very long for tune to be perfected (hybrid w/ stock turbo + heads, aftermarket up-pipe + cat back). His level of expertise and patience with customer's make it an enjoyable experience (especially when your doing 80 mph in a 40 hanging onto the wheel going around an S-curve). Great guy! People go on about saying hybrid builds cannot be done successfully, they are blowing smoke. I have about 4000 mi. of mixed driving and it has run perfect since. I have even had Matt do a few check-ups on the vehicle to make sure it will last w/ upgraded boost (15psi). It's a great build if it is done right. DS1 for the motorwork and Matt (555 Motorsports) for the tune. Thank you,

MvP

Default 555 Motorsports and Ds1

I recently had a road tune, done by Matt (555 Motorsports). I'm very happy with the service and performance of the vehicle. I would recommend Matt to anyone looking for a tune. (The car is running very well)

Also to Ds-1 (Dylan's) credit, we went over the mods I have done, (note they were put together fairly quick and I have a lot of cleaning up to do). Dylan and Matt took a little extra time with me and gave me alot of insight on what I'll need to do to improve my build, and improve its longevity.

I will be setting another appointment soon for some dyno time.

Thanks again,

Jason

I could not be happier with the way my car turned out. Huge difference from my prior protune. My car drives way smoother now more like a jet fighter and not like a B52 bomber with a nice big powerband for a vf39. The car is way more enjoyable to drive daily. Boost does not feel like I hit a brick wall and before cruzin around town the car did not drive well, but up top it was fine which was my issue with my last tune. I asked Matt like a million questions and was more than happy to answer and explain what he was doing. Matt is honest and will tell you what works and what’s all hype. Super nice guy and if you have a issue he will not rest until its fixed. Matt honestly cares about his customers and takes his time to make sure everything is right and that is hard to come by. Matt Keep up the good work!

This guy is the truth! Smart kid with a bright future in the Subaru Community.
Don’t sleep on him when he’s in your area and get your car tuned.

Now we just need my other turbo to come in.

+1 For Matt

+1 for matt. My 2.0 SCREAMS now that he's done with it.

I had a small part throttle "hiccup" in my map that we didn't catch in the two hours of road tuning - and matt has been more than willing to fix the issue whether it be a few more minutes on the road or via an e-mail reflash.

Even the problem I had wasn't a big deal

Great tuner, Great guy, Great prices!!

Mathew has been excellent to deal with and has listened to every request I've made. He has very quick turn around time for the map revisions and he really does place the customer first.

I am on my 4th revision right now (5th if including base map) and the car drives smoother, spools faster, and pulls harder than any other map I've tried. The driveability after his tune blew my mind. I had no idea my car was even capable of driving this way (I shrugged off a lot of the roughness with my other tunes as a "characterstic of the vehicle") and I really think the price he's offering these tunes at is a complete steal.

I'm glad I went with Mathew because a 30 day tune allows you to let the changes sink in and constantly tweak what needs to be improved. It also lets your car experience different weather conditions, which is not possible with a 1 day road or dyno tune (which usually costs about 4x the price).

Honestly, how many tuners will custom scale your STOCK intake and tune the car for driveability in the low gears with AC on?

I've had his email tuning and was so happy with it i dragged his ass to Hawaii to tune my car in person. Matt is a great tuner and really cool guy but his dad is way cooler IMO haha. Hope everything is well with you and your family bro keep up the good work.

P.S. You should start selling Aquamist HFS-6 systems

Default 555 Motorsports- Now tuning Ferraris, Porsches, Lamborghinis? Really?

"We are now also entering the high end market of tuning and building. Over the years I have had the oportunity to work on some amazing cars. I would now like to extend this knowledge to the general public by offering tuning and build services on such cars as BMW, Mercedes, Porsche, Lamborghini, Ferrari, Land Rover, VW and many more." - http://555motorsports.net/about.html

This guy is just scamming people outright. It is ridiculous. Scamming Suby owners is one thing but now he is taking it to a whole new level of badness. How is it possible to tune high end cars like that when you have no experience with them?

There is a long list of customers cars he has messed up or blown up. Don't know how you can go from specializing in Subarus to confidently saying you can tune every high end manufacturer.

He is most likely buying software from other companies euro wise and reselling it. The buy in to do those cars openly can be 50-75k and I dont see many people doing that.

i dealt with him in the past (I am a tuner myself) and had no issues I would love to see people upset with him

They are flashes from the uk same premise as what vivid, active autowerks and many other companies offer. Also nice because you can customize them per application, not just a choice from 3 or 4 generic maps.

Due to recent developments I have changed my opinion.
