Man that looks good. If you don't mind me asking what did all this run you cost wise? And can you send me the contact details for the garage?

Currently got the custom exhaust from Fox and a drop in from TRD. Really interested in a tune but didn't know where.

Hi guys,

Quote:
Travers, what are your thoughts on the car after the Tune?
Is it worth the extra spend?

Your HP gains are fantastic. Could i ask - your gains are very similar to a member on this forum called Ultra. I can't remember his setup but do you think Sam (garage looks like OTD) is using a "one map for all" or is actually tweaking to work with your mods?
I definitely noticed the difference after the tune. I love the launch control and the flat foot shifting - mega-fun! The power gains are not ground-breaking, but I can feel them, and they have given me enough to be happy with the car while I upgrade the breaks, radiator, and clutch, in preparation for the Turbo kit.

I spent the day with Sam as he was tuning the car. I watched him each step of the way. My car had about 20-25 runs on the dyno before he was comfortable with the WHP and the air/fuel ratio. For reference, the first run was 165WHP (Remember I had already done my exhaust and drop-in filter). Definitely Sam is not doing a one tune for all, he cares about the outcome as he has a great reputation to protect.

The tune (including the ECUTek license and dyno testing throughout the process) is AED4,000. I jumped into it without really thinking about it since I'll need to buy the ECUTek license when I turbo-charge, so I am only really losing the price of the tune (AED1,500). After the tune, I'm really happy that I did it. Don't get me wrong, it's still not a monster, but I notice and enjoy the difference the tune has made.

The tuning garage is called One Thousand Dunes Motorsports. You can find them on Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/OneThousandDunes. They are in Al Quoz, in the block behind the Nissan dealer on SZ Road.

Hope that helps you guys :-)

here in UAE all the 86 doesnt come with exhaust tips and manual only comes with the low spec (16" attached). but i must say the 16s does look better than the 17s and made by enkei. still i plan to upgrade to 17 or 18

Tastefully modded , clean avo kit you have

I passed by OTD and saw your car. The vinyl wrap on the taillights looks clean unlike the one I have on my car from profoil that keeps peeling off.

Thanks :-)

Y'know, I had to go back to Profoil a couple of times to fix the peeling. It's those sharp corners at the top of the tail light that I was having trouble with.

So you're the guy with the Avo turboed car. How much power did you get from it and how's it holding up?

Was thinking of doing the Vortec SC with OTD but stuck waiting for my JDL UEL header to arrive.

Also - clean choice of wheels man.
