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.

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

RFossum13GTI

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.

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.
