Shitty tuner did a shitty tune. Dynotronics in new braunfels is an ecutek dealer and offered a free tune in exchange of developing software for the car since i was one of the first guys in tx to get my hands on a FR-S. I accepted and after 3 months of running the tune at the track piston #2 cracked and the piston ring shot up the valve, this was caused because the tune was too lean. Get a free tune they said . Only engine mods were a tune, trd drop in, motiv test pipe, invidia exhaust, and AP pulley. Good thing is im getting it warrantied, i should have it back in a couple of weeks.

Here are some pics of the car before the mishap:

Compensating a heavy car with horsepower is like giving an alcoholic cocaine to sober him up...
