I used my free certificate for the Harris Hill Road Mini School today. Yep - the one that I won in the FT86 day raffle! It was AWESOME.... The car ran like it was meant to be on the track.

That was actually my car.

While I'm here, wanted to ask has anyone had an ecu flash and tune? If so where is a good place in or around Austin?

I was advised to go to JMS Racing in San Antonio. Probably getting my supercharger dyno tuned there. Immediate Austin area has no Ecutek tuners that are here constantly. Junior shows up at Boost Logic sometimes in Austin, but he isn't always at the shop since he's traveling around the US tuning at different shops.

I had someone on the forums remote Ecutek tune me. We did about 30 pulls on the street for my tune and adjusted everything in the low, mid, and high rpm timing.

Was afraid I might have to travel out of town but would be worth it. Need it with the new header. CEL came on and runs fine but know that tune will get the most of it.

Yeah, P0420 is what you're probably getting. Just makes you get crappy gas mileage and the engine runs rich.

I stopped by MZM International yesterday to talk about an Ecutek tune. They are listed on the Ecutek site as a certified tuner. $900 for Ecutek tune with dyno. Does anyone have any experience with them?

Good question, I would like to know as well. JMS is the only one I have seen personal experience from and it was all positive.

New to Austin and I have some?

I need a recommendation for a good body shop.

I also need a tint and Alarm instillation shop.

Thanks for your help.
