This is just a simple question. I would like to know from people who's had tuning done by Dan Harman if you are satisfied with his work. You may PM me if you like.

This is not a debate. I just want to get some feedback in order to make a good decision about who to go for tuning.

Appreciate your input.

me personally, none.

but i have certainly heard far more good things than bad. in fact i really can't recall anything bad at all, other than he doesn't have bargain basement pricing. then again nobody works cheap enough unless you're the one trying to make a living.

Here's another that ties into the post above. It's from the same guy.
http://www.iwsti.com/forums/showthread.php?t=36087

Funny how Dan came on in the first thread to say he though the APS part didn't fit right and turns out he was wrong because he forgot to read the instructions and trim the wastegate devider, but he feels he handled the situation right by selling the guy a new downpipe and pocketing $120 for it. Lame.... BECAUSE HE'S A PROFESSIONAL WHO DOESN'T KNOW HOW TO INSTALL A PART OR FOR THAT MATTER READ THE INSTRUCTIONS.

is there any shop out there that doesn't have at least one pissed off customer?

not IME.

most of the guys i know who wrench for a living will not install parts that are not purchased at their shop. why? because there's too much BS involved otherwise.

Hey, does everyone at NASIOC have a problem with replying posts in the forum? ISN'T this why we have a forum to begin with? Every question people ask there is always the "use the search function" reply. If I really enjoy going through gazillion threads just to find the info I want I'm better off going to my local public library.

If the search actually returned some useful information I wouldn't have asked!

For those of you that replied, I appreciate your time.

Or perhaps you suck at searching. . .these were found in less than five minutes, by typing the words harman + motive. GENIUS! (in guiness commercial voice of course) There were many, many more than this.

Perhaps that was all you had to do in the first place? Since you are such a genius at searches? I typed in "harman motive reputation" to get a more specific result. Shoot me.

But thank you anyway for the results. I'll remember to not ask the good people on NASIOC again in the future for help so you won't be offended by my lack of intelligence and ability for internet searches.

Regards

The amount of time for you to help somebody out, make their day and possibly help you some time in the future is less than 5 minute of your time if you so chose. Thats not much isn't it. Since you SUCK as a person/human being you can't possibly afford to give that. Your parents must have denied you a lot of things growing up.
