Default E-Tune: IA Performance (They Rock!)

I took a chance on getting an e-tune from IA (for only $100!!!!), and I cannot say enough good things about them! For the low price of only $100, I got daily updates on my maps, went through 6 iterations to get it nailed down. My car car runs fantastic!!! I dealt with another e-tuner before IA and got a "crappy" tune for $150, that he didn't even finish. Not so with IA. On a tiny VF48 with only a 92 octane tune I got nearly 300/300whp. Even with a large FMIC on the tiny VF (2.5L) lag is minimal to say the least.

If you don't have access to a local tuner, IA is the way to go!!!!

Fill out your profile. Based on what you've said, we know you have a 2.5l w/vf48, but not on what car...could be a hybrid, etc.

those are pretty solid numbers, congrats.

Stock engine and tranny... hence IA rightfully so gave me a safe tune. No complaints about not hitting 350lb-ft at 3,000rpms.

Mods that matter are (stock motor 2.5L WRX)
Tiny VF48
GrimmSpeed 3 port BCS
Full turboback exhaust (dual cans as its an 08 sedan)
Large FMIC
BPV
Braided Oil Lines
CAI
Walbro and *oversized* DW injectors
NGK +1 heat range
Cobb AP
Running Rotella 5W40
92 Octane (no knock ANYPLACE in any of my many logs)
*My large injectors cause a little idling issues when cold at start up (like today!!)

Here here! Stephen was helping me "e-Diagnose" my project build centered around a DOM1.5XTR and Perrin FMIC. Very similar setup to yours with regards to the other supporting mods. Stephen was extremely responsive and answered all my questions (lots of them!). He provided clear technical assessments and unbiased opinions when I asked "What should I do?"

Stephen is customer service at its best. Customer service for me is a key factor of any business that separates the good from the bad and Stephen from IAP is the epitome of great customer service! Definitely, definitely recommend you consider Stephen and IAP for your project needs!

+1 for Stephen. I am currently in the middle of an E-tune with Stephen and he has exceeded my expectations. I do not live near any tuners here in Manhattan, KS and Stephen has continually tried to improve the tune. He does not just give up and say its good enough. I have gone through 11 maps so far. I will continue purchasing from them just because of the great communication and customer service. Thanks Stephen!

Over the past year, I've had Stephen do 3 maps for my 2010 STI. (Summer, Winter and a Race map). The maps are great and Stephen is providing the best customer service I've ever seen period! My car is running better than ever. It would consume a bit of oil and fill my catch can with the Cobb OTS map, Stephen's maps got the car consuming no oil and my catch can stays empty. I strongly recommend him!

Stephen hooked me up with a sweet tune as well. Helped me troubleshoot numerous mechanical issues and did over 20 maps until we were both happy. Was hoping for at least 270HP...ended up making 300 hp and 260 ft lbs. car is a blast, but already want moar power

I'm in the middle of doing an E Tune with them right now, and you are absolutely right, Customer Service at it's best, not to mention, that they know what they are doing...I am a customer for life...and been recommending them to all my friends

Question

Any current e tune promos anyone knows about? $100 is substantially less than $200.

Iím a satisfied customer, Stephen Clark has excellent work ethic, takes pride in his work and the results speak for themselves. Both my JDM swapped cars are on IA Tuning maps, top notch service. Highly recommend dealing with IA Tuning.
