I'm in the same boat as you....the man is buying me a Utec when he gives me my money, but I want to know who can tune it here locally or if FIS can get it done.

I currently have 3" TBE with hiflow cat and bell-mouth downpipe, HKS Catless Uppipe, HKS SSQV BOV, and Custom AEM Short Ram Intake. I need some one to tune to this. HELP US OUT!!!

Try your local regional/chapter forums.

You'll get a better response there.

SBC has only touched a couple UTECs. I have tuned glilly's car there, but they are a relatively new shop, or at least they have only had their dyno for a short period of time.

There are no highly experienced UTEC tuners based in Houston at this time.

Also my e-mail is jbowen@pdxtuning.com

After my most recient experience at Turbochargers.com I would HIGHLY suggest you use SBC's facilities no matter who it is that tunes your car.

This guy knows what he is talking about. I drive 8 hours to portland to have these PDX guys mess up my car as best they can and I wouldnt let anyone else screw my baby.

PDX!!!!!!!!!!!!!
