Default Thanks Travis Cooke!

I'd like to thank Travis Cooke and Soulless Performance for work well done. A couple months back, I asked Travis Barnes for a referral to someone local here in AZ that could finish my long overdue project and tune the car. After having Travis Barnes do some work before, I trusted him and respected his opinion. Subsequently, I contacted Travis at Soulless and discussed my intentions for the car, I felt comfortable in his abilities and we devised a plan of attack. I then towed in my non-running 2004 STI with a trunk fill of parts and the fun began. We decided to go a different route with injectors, changed intake manifolds, and tweaked a few other minor things to eventually land on an agreeable strategy. With power goals of 500whp as a target, Travis dug through boxes, installed components, performed a lot of wiring, and tore into the car with a methodical and calculated approach. I've had the car back for a week and couldn't be happier with the end result. Forget about big power and crazy full throttle only tunes for a second. While I think that's all well and good, the car has to remain drivable and that's primarily the reason the car was torn apart to begin with. I'm super picky when it comes to tunes and hyper-sensitive as it relates to drivability issues. This tune is smooth, reliable, consistent, and resembles drivability of a factory tune, meanwhile it kicks out almost 650whp upon request (throttle input). 👍

Kudos to Travis Cooke and Soulless for making another customer happy with their car. For those that are curious, below are the non-corrected and corrected charts for the car.

Awesome. Thanks for the Post. I talked to Travis a while ago on getting my Legacy tuned via Emanage Ultimate. Finally have the car running and should be ready to tune soon. This really solidified my decision to have him do the final tune.

He's great. Trust me when I say I'm hyper anal about tunes. Going fast is one thing, but when 80%+ of your driving isn't full throttle, the drivability matters a lot.

Thanks for the kind words.
For a big boost E85 car, the street manners are very nice.
I drove this car round trip to Tucson, and it felt like a stock car on the freeway, and in traffic. (until you put your foot down.. )

Are there any E85 stations known in Gilbert? I'm writing Flex Fuel code and there's nowhere close (enough) to fill up at. Driving 20 minutes to get gas is not conducive to testing code.
