2013 Scion FRS Turbo – Install & test

The other day got a customer that a turbo system (JDL) was installed in his 2013 FRS by another local shop.   He brought the car to us to look over the install of the turbo kit and also add a Hallman MBC to the mix.  We installed the MBC as well as correct a few things  in the engine bay, then proceeded to put the car on the dyno to get the boost levels to 9psi.  We checked out the calibration that the vehicle had and we warranted that it did not need any further adjusting to it at that increased boost level.

Comments left by the client on our facebook site:
I had just recently dealt with Corr Performance. I couldn’t have asked for a better set of not only mechanics, but enthusiasts, to work on my car. I felt extremely comfortable leaving my car here and very confident in the work that was being done on my 2013 Scion FRS – Turbo. Both Alberto and Zack are the smartest guys I have ever met, not just in a car sense, but also an educational matter. If you are looking for someone who is going to take care of your car and do work properly, Corr Performance is the way to go. Shout-out to Alberto and Zack for doing amazing work, and I am for sure not done dealing with this business.

2014 Subaru WRX – ProTune

Received this Subaru WRX sedan for a fuel pump and injectors install.  Well the Walbro 300lph install was pretty much straight forward, but when we installed the supplied set of Dynamic Injection 1000cc the engine did not like them and I was struggling to get a clean idle. Besides the struggle with tuning the idle there were some DTCs that came up in reference to the injectors.

Thanks to my friend Zach that suggested we take out the injectors and have them tested and flowed, we quickly found out that this set of injectors were the culprit. Spoke to the client told him about the situation and we decided to get a set of fresh FID1000cc in the mix. We installed the FID1000 moved 2 parameters in the accessport and the vehicle was purring like a stock car once again.

Later installed the last piece of the puzzle, a Grimmspeed EBCS and she was ready to hit the rollers.

This WRX came back to us since the owner found some issues with his turbo inlet pipe and was changed out with a new unit.  So the WRX was brought back to us to check the calibration and make sure all the fuel trims and other sectors in the calibration were operating optimal.  Here is the result from this retune.

Green line was the previous tune and the red line is the tune after the turbo inlet hose install.  In conclusion made some further positive results on the tune.
Also managed to spool up quicker and make some positive improvements to the WTQ in the earlier section of the RPM range.

LSU FSAE 2017

This past Saturday 3/11/17 had the engineers from the LSU FSAE team bring their kart back on the rollers to do some further testing with the vehicle.  To their surprise the changes they made to the motor and some tweaking on the engine management system yielded in positive results.

2002 Subaru WRX – Calibration

Got this client a week ago to drop his Subaru WRX to get mapped out, but come to find out there were some issues that needed to be rectified before a single power pull could be administered.

A rear passanger side wheel bearing needed to be fixed, apart from that there were some vacuum lines that were not in the correct order.  After those things were sorted out then we proceded to connect and tune the vehicle via RomRaider.  Specs on the vehicle are as follows:

Fresh JDM ej205, 2004 sti 6 speed transmission, Kinugawa 20G turbo with all the necessary bolt ons.

2002 Lexus IS300 (2JZ-GTE)

An previous client came with a newly acquired car. His last one was lost in the recent floods so this was his new ride and it needed some remapping.  A built motor swap from a Supra was done to this vehicle as well as fitted it with many aftermarket parts to boot.

Mod list included: Haltech Sprint500 / Bosch 1000cc / Precision T4 6262 / GSP modified T4 Exh. manifold / Tial 44mm WG / HKS BOV / CX Racing FMIC / JE pistons /stock rods / Ferrea valves 1mm intake & .5mm exhaust / HKS 264 camshafts / Crower Spring & retainers / HKS headgasket  / Manual Transmission.

Shell Vpower 93 octane was used

Apart from remapping the Sprint500 we had to replace some tired Tbolt clamps in the chargepipes and swap out a faulty MBC for a Hallman MBC. Boost then was linear from 19psi to 18psi.

Special thanks to this client for trusting us with his vehicle.  See ya soon

Panama tuning 1/14/15 – Race Qualifiying

Waking up early on Saturday morning we gathered the troops loaded up the 2 Nissan Titan trucks and headed to Las Mendozas in Chorrera where the track is located. Its a 4hr journey from Las Tablas to the race track.  Needed to fuel up the trucks and our stomachs so we stopped in this very modern gas station.  This style of new gas stations remind me of the petrol station that can be found Portugal.

Panama Tuning 1/13/17 – Infiniti G37S

Got started itn the morning with this 2008 Infiniti G37S M/T.  Client drove from the capital to Las Tablas (4hrs) to get UpRev tuned at Taller NB on our Dyno Dynamics.

Mods on the vehicle:

Berk TP
Exhaust Stillen
Intake Gen3 Stillen
ARK exhaust

Managed to squeeze a little more power out of the vehicle and also made sure the limiters were in place.  The motor let go a while back due to a over rev condition and he wanted to take no chances on this newer motor.

Thanks once again to my associates from Taller NB in Las Tablas, Panama.
