Default Bren Tuning Review A+++

Yesterday was a very important day for a few reasons. It wasnt but 3 weeks ago that my car spun two rod bearings on a dyno somewhere in CT. I am not putting any blame on them, or naming any names but their customer service, overall attitude and lack of a reliable tune had me looking elsewhere.

I was very nervous thinking about having anyone tune my car as I wanted a reputable tuner and someone who would treat my car as I would but better. After days and nights of research I decided on Bren Tuning. It was Alex that I first spoke to and well, he is a stand up guy. We talked about my car and the rebuild, he shared some ideologies, notorious variables at play and we also just talked about cars in general.

To top off the Bren Tuning experience I met Brendan. Another stand up guy, that really did a fantastic job tuning my Subaru. Again, questions erupted about the build, he needed to piece together the info needed to figure out if my car was ready for the dyno. After talking and clearing up any discrepancies, he said it was good to be dynoed only if I was cool with it. SO, i agreed and it happened.

I wanted a mild tune (not a look at my numbers tune), and thats what I got. I had great numbers for very low boost with my setup, and it will only get better with more miles. Once the dyno was complete, Brendan and I went out for a little drive so he could tie up any loose end and really fine tune somethings.

DAMN, I never expected the car to feel so smooth through the rpm range. It ran like a champ, it felt so much more powerful than my last tune that had slightly higher numbers. I am and will be very happy with this tune until the next mod bug strikes.

To Brendan and Alex, Thank you very much. It is not every day someone can just go to a shop for the first time and feel very comfortable, and know that their ride is in the best care and interest.

Thank you again,
JOE

i also have my car tuned by brendan and love it!! it's an Accessport e-tune, but the car is super smooth! He ironed out some issues from a previous tuner. he's always dead on with any questions / concerns i have. I only wish i was closer to get a dyno tune with my new setup this spring! (but Bren tuning is 1200 miles away, each way!)

i have to add a few things to this.

decided to go with a bren e-tune on my stage 2 2015 wrx. couldn't be happier with the customer service so far.

after i send logs, i get my next rev within a few hours (of them being open, check their operating hours in their signature line of the email)

i sent logs last night, got a new rev by 11:30 today, did some logs at lunch, sent them around 1, and i already have my next rev... and its only 2:30.

each rev feels smoother and better, and looks better in the logs.

again, great customer service and i can't wait to get my final rev to feel how the car is when its done!

I'm just starting the eTune process on my MY16 WRX, but I can already tell this was an excellent investment. I only have their baseline map so far, but I've already noticed the following:

1. Ridiculous performance at only modest boost levels.
2. Zero detectable knock
3. Butter smooth idle

Can't wait to continue the process!

A lot of good e tune reviews!



My experience with Bren was really poor. Glad to see other people are having better luck with him.

Sorry to hear that. We try our hardest to provide everyone the best experience possible, unfortunately with the volume that we do, occasionally we will have someone dissatisfied. I am always available by phone to discuss what we can do better / different to improve the experience.
