    Church Tuning

    Very happy with the service and performance provided by Shawn and Daniel from Church Automotive. Let me emphasize on the service first. I asked for a late Thursday tune due to the work schedule. I was accommodated for a 5:00pm appointment. After getting set up first run was at 6:00pm. Final run ended at 9:00pm. This includes switching fuels from 91 to e85. After we went for a 30 min road tune to finalize.

    After a few weeks of daily driving decided to do some late night pulls. I had perfect logs- no fine knock, no pulled timing, 11.5 and below a/f ratio during pulls. Then finally I had my last pull and I hit boost cut. Called Church and they schedule a road tune follow up. At that time they were able to correct boost cut issue, improve spool time, and improve top end. Now averaging 19-20 psi and 30% wastegate duty cycle.

    Well worth the money spent. They actually return your text or call in a timely fashion. They warranty their tune the life you own your vehicle. I recommended highly to my buddy with a S/C G37 and he will echo my compliments as he put down 476 whp on a 8psi pulley.

    Side note: They also removed the stuttering around 2800-3000 rpms we all have grown to love.

    Numbers are just that...numbers. In the end my seat dyno reads that everything is feeling good.

    Results-

    91 octane 413 hp 416 tq

    e85 458 hp 453 tq (also had to tune down due to stock block)

    tuned my car for almost 5 hours between the dyno and road tune...also did a touch up to help with cold starts (e85). My car has never ran so good and is very professional..

    Tune= hour to an hour and a half per fuel
    Road tune= forty five minutes

    Depends on what you are looking for. What you are tuning with - Cobb Ap, open source,ect.
    If you are going to use different types of fuel.

    My theory is eat top ramen for a month so you get a quality tune. :grin:

    It was $400 but I tipped him a bit since he came to my house and put a base map on so I could limp over to the shop on E85...not sure if it costs less for pump gas. I doubt it, it's the same process
