Dunno how true this is or not, but the MB/AMG community has been very happy with OE Tuning and its results, myself included.
I have been stopping by at OE TUNING/GINTANI for quite some time and they are running a legit/professional business.
People are gonna talk alot of shit, its just the nature of the beast.

Never heard of one MB motor being blown by OE Tuning. I know quite a few guys that run the OE Tune on E63's, C63's, 65's....not one problem.

I could be mistaken here...but the evidence you guys brought forth only possibly proves that they manipulated the dyno...all that means is that they claim they are putting out more HP than they really are..

I have yet to see any evidence that their actual product is bad. If their product was blowing up motors that would be a different issue. There is definitely a HP increase in there product that you can see in the various videos that have been posted.

So sure you have proof that they maybe they dont make that much HP, but I do not see how that is enough evidence to claim all the bullshit all of you are claiming...This is a forum and if you want to have a real discussion about things like this bring actual facts to the table....if you claim that many engines have been blown up by their tuning...dont just say so...post the evidence to an article....or thread. Until then you are just full of shit in my opinion.

At least that is just looking at this from an outside perspective.

Deceptive marketing and practices have been around the tuning scene for a long time. This is not a shocker.

No thread has been shut down. And we're not here to cover up things for vendors or sponsors.

Now you all understand how important it is for correction factors to be shown?

Doesn't matter if you go to a 3rd party dyno or not, the correction factors need to be displayed. You can do the simple maths yourselves then.

This has been manually calculated as being a 10% gain through the entire rpm range.

If there has been foul play you need to understand how it's done.

Myself and others have put up dyno cheating guides a long long time ago. No one listened or took note.

I would like to make it very clear............ until you can prove something was changed between the runs, you have 'zero' evidence.

You can change many many things to get a 10% difference.

People are so gullible these days.. They hear one thing from someone and TOTALLY throw it out of proportion..

Since when did OE Blow any MBZ vehicles???.. M33 it's CLEARLY obvious that you have some kind of hard on for OE/Gintani. If you hear one thing from someone, you AUTOMATICALLY believe its real.. or atleast preach that it is real just to bring them down..

As for the Dyno business, I wouldn't even want to say anything about it because I honestly don't know anything about dyno's and how they are supposed to run so I'm just going to keep my mouth shut on that one. If you do not know what you are talking about please don't talk at all. No one needs more BS then there already is.

Looks like another BS thread/crusade against OE/Gintani spearheaded by a "rival" envious "tuner" and their minions. You're bringing the claims: prove them. Don't just mouth off and repeat what you've read or heard in forums. I for one am a satisfied OE customer.

Conjecture, speculation, and trolling FTMFL

Funny how when we all ask for them to stop talking unless they have concrete evidence...they all shut up...

Well I guess lets look on the bright side at least they know how to listen.
