JRSC and OFT?

Hello all.
Recently purchased a c38 JRSC kit for my 2015 brz. Since I already have the tablet and flex fuel kit from OFT, I opted to get the etune from them instead of going with ecutek. I'm just curious if this is was a wise decision. It is taking a bit to hear from Shiv but other than that I can't really find threads that speak about other issues or reliability of this setup. Anyone have some info on this?
Thanks!

I tried to get a custom tune with them, at the time i had the phantom esc, 1320 headers full catback, AEM tuned CAI, and a torque throttle body spacer...I was hoping with the extra bolt ons i could squeeze out a bit more hp and tq out of the system....since all the other phantom builds were pretty much stock air box and headers... but after weeks of going back and forth with them and bad tunes i just gave up and took my 200$ loss...so now im still running the phantom esc but everything else is stock except the catback...I'll probably put everything back and try and find a custom tuner near me.
P.s I was running e85 the whole time

I run a custom tune from Shiv on my JRSC. I'm very happy with the tune, I think Shiv did a great job getting me the tune I requested. I wanted it to be track-safe and rock-solid reliable, moreso than trying to eek out every last hp out of it.

It's mostly a track car only these days, and I've had the tune for two and a half years without needing to mess with it at all yet. I typically will run a 30 minute race at full pin lap after lap, and my closest competitors are trailer queens (Mustangs, Corvettes, BMW's, RX8's), while mine is street driven and full interior, so I'm happy with the powerband.

Only thing I didn't like was the timeline (took too long for tuning) and communication was lacking.

Thats cool, but yea the time line and lack of communication i think is what caused me to back out with shiv

He was also way more active 2 1/2 years ago.
But How long did your tune take per revision?

Per revision, one week, sometimes two.
I would always do the requested logs and emailed back within a half day at most.
