Is the DC area considered the south? It's below the Mason-Dixon line! If so, count me in

I'd let anybody respond, and you might have had better luck posting this in the southeast region forum if you just want SE people to respond.

I never go to the SE forum, but I go to the eng mgmnt forum alot. I'm assuming most are like me. The regional forums are almost like OT to me. Never go there either. So are you a southeast Hydra user or just don't want to feel left out?

So we have only 3? I was trying to drum up interest for a Phil dyno day in Atlanta. I'd need 5 including myself.

Default why

Why dont you just let one of the fine tuners from the southeast tune it. Do you think that these other tuners have some kind of black magic voodoo that they bring with them.

Sorry its just a pet peeve of mine.

Try any of these shops

www.batlground.com
www.topspeed.com
www.dyno4mance.com

I personally use batlground, but I'm sure the other two shops do a fine job of tuning.

Awesome they are great guys, thats why I recomended them, I'm not sure why you felt a need to get all crazy and send me threatening PM's.

I know that all of those shops have experince tuning hydras so I was just suggesting that you keep your business local and have on of the southeast's many fine tuners tune your subaru.

Phil is the only person that I will let touch my car! I went to one of the tuners you suggested and got a tune that was almost decent on the dyno during wide open pulls, but my egts were extremely high. I asked why and got an "I dont know", we went on the road and things were still off, thing knocked the entire way home under varying loads and light throttle. I never posted anything about it, but the majority of people are typically concearned w/ dyno figures and Im not. Of course I want to make good power but not at the expense of my motor just so all the cronies here can bow down and kiss XXXX's ass. I let them know that I wanted a safe tune and a C16 tune. I might as well have thrown the money away as had the damn car tuned. The map I was using prior to the session worked better on the street and never knocked. Phil tuned my car a few years back and again recently and IMO he is one of the most knowledgeable tuners around. My car is perfect now, or as close as it can be. You hear all these guys on standalones talk about how their car drives better than stock and you think its all BS, but mine does drive better than stock, its completely safe and NO one else will ever touch it again.

Like I said in my first post, I take mine to batlground.

I had my car tuned by Clark once and he did a ok job, then I had it retuned by Dan at Batlground, and it was much better.

Air, Timing, Fuel

That is all

I was just trying to point out that you might get more interest in there, and thus get whatever it is that you are looking for. I know a couple people with hydras don't post to often in here. but do want you want too man.
just read the thread and wth dude why not just say you were trying to put together a tuning/dyno day? it might have been a lot easier.




how is SE like teh OT?

It saddens me that you'd troll a legitimate thread like this. In fact, Dyno4mance would host Phil as a guest tuner for this event. They've done dyno days like this before with Clark from Kingpin and Shiv from Vishnu and had a lot of success. Those of us that are Hydra users might actually LIKE to have Phil come to our area and tune our car. Since Dyno4mance is nice enough to accomodate this happening, please don't sabotage it with your agenda. I would really like to have Phil come to town.

1. I made a similar post in the SE forum last year and it was like this but 10x worse

2. I can say now that SE and EM is like OT in that people make posts that have nothing to do with the thread.

3. 1 and 2 is why I didn't want to mention anything about a dyno day. I was going to get names of Hydra users in the SE and send them all PM, so no friends of SE tuners would get butthurt.

To all that have responded as a Hydra user, I will contact you via PM. Thanks

Thank you for organizing this and thanks to all of Elementís supporters.

Often the purpose of a dyno day is not only to service regional Hydra owners but to also provide a clinic to the tuning facility so they better serve the region for current and future Hydra users. No doubt there are decent turners in this area but itís rare for a tuning facility to step forward and be opened minded to the fact that they may learn a thing or two that makes tuning a particular EMS easier for them. Iím not there to teach them how to tune but instead to show them the ins and outs of the Element Hydra EMS. This is a sign they are serious about professionally and properly supporting the Hydra EMS community in the region. Too often shops use customersí cars to learn how to tune and EMS they are unfamiliar with.

Thanks,
Phil

After a getting a horrible tune (in the atlanta area), I've been doing my own tuning for the past two years. Phil is the only person I trust to tune my car. Too bad I have a broken center diff and lost compression on a cylinder or I'd be in. Appearantly the EJ257 didn't like 28psi on pump gas even for a fraction of a second. In less than a second I broke 2nd gear and probably a ring land. Thats what happened when my watse gate line blew off when I floored it in 2nd gear.
