Talking HUGE thanks to the guys at gintani!!!

Drove down there yesterday to get a full exhaust with hfc, a tune and a pulley done.

Not only does my car sound and perform amazing!, but I had a blast hanging out there all day. My car gained over 50hp at the wheels, we shot the sh*t, had some tacos....it was good times.

Car dynoed stock at 319hp and after all the mods was over 370hp. I would expect that number to go up once the tune adapts .

They def earned a customer for life. Next up is a supercharger! Hopefully in the next few weeks.

Driving home it felt like I had a brand new car, it was insane! I highly recommend them.

Honestly it should be up this week, we are fixing a problem with purchasing products through the website. It should be fixed soon.. We don't want the site to have any problems after the launch.

Gintani's tune/exhaust is just a beast of a setup for the NA 4.0

I hit 381 on their dyno with their full catless + race setup.

Yeah The sound is amazing! I cant say enough about their staff either. I felt right at home. Im hoping with a new air filter and after my car gets used to my tune, it will hit 380.

I did get the engine malfunction light twice, but I just turned the car off and on again and it went away. Im guessing its just getting used to the new tune. So far I am very happy.

OP, congrats on your added power! You should also notice a slight increase in throttle response with the filter added, at least I did before the S/C was installed.

Are they going to discount you the price of the tune when you SC?

I have no idea if they will discount me. That's something Alex and I will discuss. As far as the pms I'm getting about price, just call gintani . They will be more than helpful.

I'll post the dyno results in a few hours
