Cool PhatBotti Tuning (merged thread)

I dealt with Mikey this past weekend (April 2, 2010) and cannot say enough positive things. He is respectful and a great knowledge resource. I am the type of person that needs explanation and will continually question until I understand how things work. I obviously had a lot of questions. Mikey explained everything he was doing in a fashion that was easily understood and he did not belittle me in any way, shape, or form.

I hit some rough patches during my tune and he was able to make the commitment and work with me to make sure I was not leaving with an iffy tune. Even though we were unable to tune for the boost level he would have liked to have seen, he will continue to work with me and provide an e-tune and possibly additional road time to ensure the flash for MY07 is aggressive, yet safe. My overall experience with PhatBotti Tuning was excellent and would urge anyone in the Tri-State area that is looking for a tune to go to contact PhatBotti Tuning!

Default Phatbotti Tuning

I have just finished having my adm 07 sti E tuned by Ron (Phatron) from
Phatbotti tuning after upgrading turbo and inlet and would like to express my thanks.
I wouldnd hesitate in recommending Ron to anybody that is after a tune.
Due to the time zone differance of about 17hrs i would log and send after work, then have a new map revision ready for me to flash into the car before going to work the next day.On the weekends i was getting 3 revisions a day.Ron is a ture perfectionest when it comes to tuning and has alot more patiance then i have.
He really should be charging more for his services; compared to other tuners over here his prices are hardly anything.
Car is going very well.Not once did i see any knock on the learning view shots or on my knock link during the process.
Ended up with around 400hp and 360ftlb on airboy.

Thanks again,
Grant.

Phatron just finished up tuning my Stage 2 STi on E85 (DW 850cc, Grimmspeed EBCS, Walbro 255 lph)

The tune feels really smooth, and powerful where I need it.

Pros:
-- They tune for E85!
-- Turnover time from sending logs to receiving revised ROMs was almost immediate! I think Ron must have been keeping 1 eye on his inbox at all times.
-- Ron was anal about MAF tables and getting the fuel correction within a couple of percent. (which I really like in a tuner)
-- Didn't try maxing out my setup... gave me a solid tune with a little bit of safety headroom.
-- Phatron was patient and was available for questions whenever I needed.
-- I told him I didn't like how aggressive his boost and throttling was at partial throttle, and he adjusted it to my liking.

Cons:
-- I want to be thorough in this review by also talking about the negative, but when I try to think of an area where service was lacking... well, I got nothing worthy of leaving in this review.

Great experience with Phatron and PhatBotti tuning. Got my money's worth FOR SURE!

I hope they maintain the level of service that I experienced, because it was very good.

Mikey tuned my car also. He is, without a doubt, the ****ing man! He's such a nice guy and really knows what he's doing. I've been out with him in a parking lot on a couple of occasions until 3AM. I can't say enough about him

big up StiMikey and phatbotti tuning. another notch on the bed post boys...

only problem with a tuning party is the time needed to dial the cars in.

a proper party would be an atco raceway track rental.

1000$ for the day, i believe. 10 guys 100$ a piece...goodtimes.

think you could handle that mike? i know you could.

not sure if the tuner can ride along in a track rental...

Ron just tuned my car as well, you can search PPB forum for my results. his MAF scaling skills are great. his fueling and AVCS, timing and everything was friggin top notch. This is one of the best etunes you can get. I have not tried them all so I can't say it is the best.

seriously if you are looking for a tune have ability to log PM Phatron and get your tune done ASAP it will be better than you expected. stock, stage 2, e85, meth, big turbo, whatever he will tune it.

thanks again RON!

I recommend Ron for tuning, he is very thorough and patient. I have been to a few tuners now and I consider Ron to be one of the best so far. I will continue to use him for tuning and encourage others to do the same. Thanks again Ron

Thumbs up

You know, after dealing directly with STi Mikey and PhatBotti Tuning for my V8 swap... I'm surprised there aren't more threads or posts in Vendor Reviews for them.

I approached Mikey via NASIOC at the last minute, a day before I was going to be leaving to go up to Sno*Drift. Asked him if he could e-tune my car before I left. The guy not only worked with me to get it done, staying out doing pulls until midnight the night before, but was more than happy to do so! I actually had to ask him to continue the next morning to finish up the tune as I was getting too tired to continue! Only took a few pulls, adjustments came back extremely fast.

I have spent thousands of dollars on my car, and I can honestly say that the money that I paid Mikey to tune my car was, by far, the most rewarding. I've never felt more comfortable after a tune than after I was tuned by Mikey.

In addition, post tune, I was having issues with some of my install and Mikey was quick to respond to e-mails asking questions regarding issues I was having with my cooling system. None of which related to my actual tune.

I wanted to formally say thank you. Absolutely first class, fellas.

I hope Phatbotti Tuning never grows any bigger as a company than it is now! Sounds mean I know but what I mean is this: Their company is small enough to be able to focus their attention and spend time on each customer like they were their only concern in the world. Larger shops simply dont do this. I have been texting and PMing Ron for weeks now about my upcoming tune and he has answered every question I could throw at him almost instantly! I havent even paid him for any tuning services yet and he is always there when I need him to answer my noob questions about boost control or gauges or whatever the case may be. Again this is a level of commitment and service that you rarely see at bigger one stop shops. Two Ginormagantuan thumbs up for Phatbotti Tuning. I cant wait to get my hybrid boost control setup tuned my Ron!

Larger shops simply dont do this. I have been texting and PMing Ron for weeks now about my upcoming tune and he has answered every question I could throw at him almost instantly! I havent even paid him for any tuning services yet and he is always there when I need him to answer my noob questions about boost control or gauges or whatever the case may be. Again this is a level of commitment and service that you rarely see at bigger one stop shops.
Thanks man.

Thats exactly why I upped my prices. I would rather spend twice the time on half the cars, than pump out 500 chitty tunes in half the time.

Great tuner and great service! Would definitely use again, and, honestly, would never go with any other tuner! I have dealt with some "GREAT" tuners before, and phatbotti by far is the best shop I have ever dealt with.

These guys are great, awesome tuners. They sponsor my car and helped me propel my car to become the VF39 Traps Speed World Record Holder and the FP Green ET Record Holder. To this day they still help with tuning adjustment to make my car perfect + a little tuning instruction as well .

Ron got my Version 8 dialed in really well on 93 and I can't wait to finish up tuning on E-85! We would have had it done but my clutch went poo poo. My car feels really good! Hopefully I'll be able to represent at the midwest shootout and bring it home for the 2.0 mod!

Ron wrapped up a tune for me a few weeks ago. I cant say enough good things about the tune and the overall experience. Thanks again Ron.

these guys are great. I have had my cars etuned by several tuners and I would have to wait 1-3 weeks for my next revision. When I first started working with ron he was very helpful . I could call him and ask any question and he would answer it for me and also help me with mechanical problems. Revisions would take anywhere from 5-15 min. He helped me through my fueling issues and would always let me know when things didn't seem right , weather it was a boost leak or whatever problem came up .

I have nothing but good things to say about ron and mikey . They are top notch with tuning and customer service etc..... Don't hesitate to pm these guys and ask them a question. You will not regret it.

Thanks again phatbotti tuning
