Thanks for the feedback guys much appreciated.
To be fair i dont consider myself as a tuner just a hairy assed mechanic with a few extra skills lol.
But from what ive seen from some of the cars and maps they have been given it surprises me that others have the ordasity to call themselves "pro tuners" when infact you could well be paying good money to literally have your engiunes life rapidly reduced so im shocked that some of these guys have got away with it for so long.
We have been extremely busy of late on the dyno and with mapping various cars, some i do myself but if something tricky comes along then il employ the services of one of the top guys we have available to us as weve built up a network of various people who are proven experts in their particular field, i.e Romain Lewenski for one who is second to none with mapping vtec and Honda"s. We have 6-7 various people available to us if i pick the phone up or get stuck with something myself they will help me out so thats quite handy.
Personally i love doing it as i find it very interesting and love seeing the look on peoples faces when they drive their respective cars, it really isnt about the money, although to be fair i have hadf some very good results of late particuarly with the gtirs and gtr"s too which aint bad for a relative novice in the game so im chuffed with what ive achieved so far and il only get better as learning new stuff every day.
Im also taking an exam in EFI tuning so if i pass will then have the relevant certification to legitimately be able to call myself a tuner amongst other things.
Only downside is the immense amount of hours im working, im doing over 2 weeks of work every week so hense me not being on forum much of late, but as said i do love doing it and i tell everyone to tell me the truth with what they think of their cars afterwards as would rather them say if they are not truly happy with anything...........its the only way you can learn is with people being open and honest then that way i can try to resolve whatever issue their may be, in the long run this will make me far better at my job and i aim to be one of the best especially regarding any jap / Nissan marque as that is what we specialise in.
Tuning is not as hard as people are led to believe at end of the day its a series of mathematical equasions that form either an ignition or fuel map and if i can do it then im sure many others can too. The most important thing is to fully understand exactly how an engine works and whats doing what at a given time so if you know that then your already half way there.
Anyway as said guys Thanks for the feedback as without it you dont know whether your heading in the right direction or not so its very useful whether it be good or bad
