2002 Honda S2000 Turbo

 

AP1 on the 2wd dyno

This car is from our very first client for Corr Performance.  This Honda S2000 started its life with some basic bolt ons and a AEM v1 since that is all that was available back in the days.

After going from N/A to turbo and having issues with his original engine after it was forced inducted, our client went and had the engine built and then he called us once again to dial in his AEMv1 with the Apexi AVC-R for some more added power.  When we dialed in the AEMv1, that resulted in 287whp at around 14psi.

After that tune we put a bug into his ear telling him to please get rid of that outdated AEMv1 and move over to a highly competent engine management system.  The Haltech Platinum Pro was purchased, installed  and also a set of Fuel Injector Development 780cc were also added.

So in conclusion we are very happy with the results that the Haltech Platinum Pro gave us at that boost level.

326whp on the Dyno Dynamics or 365whp on a dyno jet makes for a fun weekend car.

This car has come a long way and we are so proud of the results we were able to provide to one of our favorite client and good friend.  Thanks for letting us tune you car Keith!

1990 Toyota Tacoma – Haltech PS2000

Taco3

This was a little bit of a long project for the client as the client worked diligently to put in a 1997 3.4L (5VZ-FE) motor in this chassis.   After the motor was in, the Haltech PS2000  was wired by the client.  It was fitted with some  individual GM LS1 coils and a Haltech Wideband was also put into the mix to help speed the tune.

The truck was delivered to us and after many hours of trial and error in trying to get the right configurations to start the the engine and making sure the engine was in TDC and it had not jumped a tooth or something we managed to bring it to life.  Even though we managed to start the engine it still had a noise of a miss and then the (passenger side) head started to show sign that a noise was emanating from that side.

We notified the client and he came and picked up the truck so we could take it to a Toyota specialist and have the motor diagnosed.  After a few months elapsed the truck was coming back and the problem was found and rectified.

The problem ended up being the tensioner built into the exhaust cam having a bunch of slack.

Truck was brought back to now do the actual tuning on the Platinum Sport 2000, a little street tuning was done before it was loaded up on the rollers to get the final touches on the timing tables.

Taco1 Taco2 Taco5

Tuning and test were mostly done in 3rd gear.
Best power ouput was 127whp or 142whp(dyno jet) on this set up.
Down the road a TRD Supercharger will be added to deliver more WTQ since this car is going to be living doing
much rock climbing duties.

Would like to thank Nick for trusting in our recommendations, calibration and engine management system to get his project off the ground.

2013 Scion FRS Turbo

Been talking to a friend of the shop #SuWorks for some time and he finally finished his 1 year build on this vehicle for a client of his.  The FRS was fitted with many goodies so because of the forced induction kit that was added they needed some one to program this vehicle.  We were recommended to get this vehicle started since it was fitted with some upgraded injectors and fuel pump so it needed a new calibration.

The FRS arrived by trailer and after a few things were buttoned up it was time to add the starting #ecutek ROM.
Needless to say after the correct configurations to the ROM was placed the car came to life. Short and Long term fuel trims were checked and they were +/- 5% as indicated.

FRS1e FRS2e

Mods on the vehicle (which are many), but only going to put the pertinent ones:

Greddy Turbo Kit
DW 750cc injectors
DW 300c fuel pump
NST Pulley set
Hallman MBC
3″ exhaust
Wilwood BBK
6MT
Rocket Bunny body kit
Defi gauges and AEM wideband

frs1 frs2 frs3 frs4 frs5 frs6 frs8 frs9 frs10

To date we managed to make a power pull to see how the wastegate would react and we managed to make 7.5psi and power pulled to 227whp on 93 octane (stock on these vehicles are 150whp) AFRs were in the 11.1 range.

We were hoping to move the psi levels to 10psi but had a actuator issue that needs to be sorted out so till that is fixed we will update you guys in a few days.

Special thanks to #suworks and #turbonola for coming by hanging out with us and attend to any special needs to make sure that the calibration goes smooth.

5/20/2017

Got some pictures now that the FRS has been washed and was able to do some further tuning on the streets to get the AFRs exactly how I wanted them.

All I have to say is that I got a satisfied client once again.  Here are the snaps form that day.

1992 Honda Civic – H22

This previous project took me to adjusting a H22 swapped civic with all the bolt ons on a Hondata S300 controlling the show.  Later a shot of NOS was added to make some more power.

A wet shot of 100 was added to the mix and that is where the S300 came in to make sure everything was operating in the engine to par.

Able to make some very goood reliable power for the wet shot that was delivered.eg1 eg2 eg3 eg4 eg5

Panama Tuning 1/13/17 – ’08 Infiniti G37S

Started the day with a client from the capital driving all the way over to Taller NB in Las Tablas (4hr drive) to get UpRev tuned. The car that we were tuning was a 2008 Infiniti G37S and the mods on the vehicle were:

  • Berk TP
    Exhaust Stillen
    Intake Gen3 Stillen
    ARK exhaust

The previous motor on the motor let go because of a over rev issue that occurred.  A different motor was installed and he wanted to make sure the safety limiters were in place first and foremost.  We even managed to make a little more power and that is always a plus.

2014 Scion FRS/SC – EcuTek

Had the pleasure to finally calibrate our first FRS with a Innovative supercharger.  Car came in to see if we can safely extract more usable power out of the twin screw charger, since this car will be used for road circuit and AutoX duties on the weekends.  Client was gracious enough to leave the car with us for a few days to slowly tweak all the parameters needed to make the gains.

Mods in the vehicle included:

  • Perrin intake
  • Innovative SC kit
  • Nameless Performance header & downpipe
  • Greddy Evo3 cat back exhaust
  • Manual transmission

Car arrived and we loaded it onto the dyno in order to get some baselines.  After we were satisfied with the baseline we obtained we later proceeded to load a base ROM and start from scratch.

Tuning on the EcuTek was fairly straightforward as the critical tables were touched in order to reach the right AFRs and also the proper timing on the engine.

Red run was the baseline with the ROM from the Innovative kit.
Green run was after the calibration session
Blue was a final run to check once again any knock corrections and Dynamic Adv, Multiplier.
Ambient conditions during the tune – 80F, 31% hum. & 30.18 baro.  Al runs were done in the 4th gear.

In conclusion we were very satisfied with the results and like to give special thanks to Shawn F. for the referral and Daniel for trusting in our tuning services.

Haltech Elite 1500 – Savage Life EF

Finally we got a chance to get a Haltech Elite with Race Functions to a local client.  We have tuned several of these Elite series but usually in the country of Panamà.  Now I have a chance to do some local tuning to a friend and racer we are sponsoring.

HT-150939 will be soon living inside a Honda EF Civic turbo.  We are focusing now on the custom engine harness then later the ignition accessories.

This project is in the infant stages at the moment as the chassis is getting prepped up for roll cage and other items.

So for now  we are gathering the necessary parts for the heart of the project.  Stay tuned as we will constantly update this blog as the parts start to come in and the work is done to the chassis.

Will leave you now with the brains of the whole operation:

2013 Subaru WRX Hatch

It is always nice when you can provide a complete package to a client.  This was the case with this client, we supplied him the parts that he wanted for a good price.

Military discount was applied to this client as well.  We offer discounts to our brave military people and also any emergency personel.

With the parts in and awaiting for his arrival the day to drop the car off was finally here.

Before the vehicle was fitted with its upgraded parts we did a baseline to see what the vehicle output was.  At the time the car had only a Invidia cat back exhaust.

wrx9

We count on a great experienced tech by the name of Zach for this job. Zach did not waste any time in putting in the Cobb intake and Invidia down pipe in this vehicle. Great turn around time, the client was able to get his car installed and flashed with its new APv3 stage 2 OTS calibration.

Next day it was time for the calibration as the Dyno Dynamics AWD was ready to do the work.  Car was tested to see what the power gains were not with the OTS stag2 map.  After that test was done it was time for the ProTune to see where the engine power was going to end up.  Well it did not dissapoint.

2013 Volkswagen GTI MK6

A client contacted me and wanted his VW GTI calibrated, we spoke about the mods that he had and what we could do for his set up.  After finally getting the go ahead from the client a appointment was set up to visit the rollers.  This past week we had the great opportunity to finally order the VW Cobb Tuning  Protuner license.  Before the license key arrived from Cobb that game me a good chance to hit up some of the great only tutorials and tips that Cobb offers for its ProTuners.

Always the challenge with calibrating a new platform that we are not used to seeing is knowing what tables need to be touched and understanding how the actual oem ECU does its strategy to achieve safe power levels.  The one thing I love about the Cobb tuning platform is the great lengths the engineers go to keep all the necessary safety nets in place so the car’s engine can be protected during all the regions of  operation.

Mods on the vehicle were:

Cobb Intake / Cobb Turbo Back exhaust / Cobb Accessport v3 / DSG  Auto Transmission

Before and after results of the Stage2 ProTune calibration.   Test was done in 4th gear sport mode and ambient conditions on the day were: 82F, 50% hum. 29.97 Baro.

 

Client’s reaction a day after the mapping of  his vehicle.

Overall, what an improvement, especially on the lower and really high
end. Makes sense for what we changed!

Also it’s boosting up to 20.7psi, which is perfect.

Thanks a lot again man!

Nissan S14 – RB25DET

Nissan 240sx S14

Finally got around to getting this car back to the shop to do the calibration.  After collecting all the quality performance parts for the build it was time to map it.

Some of the parts we were waiting to install were:

  • Stock engine
  • Rebuilt turbo / IWG
  • DW550cc injectors
  • Haltech Platinum Pro
  • Haltech CTS, ATS sensors
  • SPAL fan upgrade.

The challenges on this vehicle was keeping the operating temps at a comfortable level and this was accomplished.   With coolant temps hovering in the 165-170F range during the tuning session mission complete. Ambient conditions on the dyno cell were 80F, 62% humidity and 30.03 baro

The next challenge was making sure we established a flat torque curve and trying to reach close to the 300whp level as that is what the goal was for this project.

First we had some boost creep issues, but Rodney after some tinkering was able to find the issues and we managed to keep the boost were we actually wanted it. The runs were done at 14psi with a little creep to 16psi. Choice of fuel was 93oct pump gas.

The car feels amazing and can not wait to see it once again when we install and adjust the rolling anti-lag feature in the Haltech Pro.

RP1 RP2 RP3 RP4

Special thanks goes out to my brother Rodney for trusting us with the mods for his engine management solution.

In conclusion, when the right quality parts are used, installed properly and the engine is mapped correctly the results are sure to come.
